Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2: Are There Issues With Early Access Campaign Launch?!

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 pre-orderers have reported problems with the early access single-player campaign.



It seems that the launch of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 early access single-player campaign has not gone smoothly. Players are reporting various problems with the launch of the early campaign. Pre-orderers of the new CoD were given early access to the game’s campaign for a week, which became available on Thursday morning. Although the early access campaign was available to download well in advance, some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 pre-orderers have not yet been able to access the game.

While September’s multiplayer beta was understandably the focus of attention for Call of Duty fans and Activision alike, many have eagerly anticipated the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 single-player campaign.

It features many of the franchise’s most popular characters, including Captain John Price, Sergeant Kyle “Gaz” Garrick, Lieutenant Simon “Ghost” Riley, Sergeant John “Soap” MacTavish, CIA Station Chief Kate Laswell and Urzikstan rebel leader Farah Karim. It also continues the storyline of the 2019 Modern Warfare reboot, which was a huge hit.

Players of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 were quite disappointed when various technical issues prevented the campaign from launching early access. Players reported problems across all platforms, including PC, PlayStation and Xbox. The issues are varied and all of unclear origin, but it appears that many players will miss at least the first day of early access to the single-player campaign.

Specific problems include PlayStation users unable to find the early access campaign download.

Xbox Call of Duty players are receiving error messages for trying to access the campaign too early, and PC users are receiving messages from Steam that the platform is not working. Much of the problem is due to users trying to download the campaign on launch day rather than pre-loading it. However, there are also obvious server problems either on the platforms or at Activision, probably due to the significant increase in traffic.

The good news for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 pre-orderers is that none of these problems appears to be long-term. PlayStation Call of Duty players have reported being able to download the campaign from their game libraries. And Xbox users say that repeatedly restarting the game helps to fix the bugs. The Steam version also stabilized during the day.

Disruptions are expected with a game as popular as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Even during a pre-order exclusive early access period, a surge in traffic can act as a DDoS on servers. Servers may be down or slow to refresh. Call of Duty players will hopefully be patient and understanding. And Activision will hopefully reward those who have had problems accessing what they paid for.
