COD: Advanced Warfare is freezing on PS3, PS4

We are seeing some massive problems with Call of Duty Advanced Warfare thanks to freezing on both PS3 and PS4. Our review copy crashed on PS4, and it was such a problem that a cold restart was needed by holding down the power button.

Our inbox had received a couple of emails in regard to COD: Advanced Warfare crashing and freezing on PS3, but we thought nothing of it until we played the PS4 version today. While we are not saying everyone’s copies are crashing, it’s clear there’s problems with Zero Day versions running the 1.04. Update: For those looking for information on COD Advanced Warfare 1.05 and the features that could be coming, head to our report here.

COD Advanced Warfare is freezing

After running into problems ourselves and receiving some emails, we took a look on Twitter and noticed we’re not alone with Advanced Warfare freezing on PS4 and PS3. In fact, it seems there’s a few issues on Xbox One and 360 as well, but not as much as seen with the PlayStation Zero Day version.

cod-advanced-warfare-upgrade

We have listed a few tweets below that reveal big problems with crashing and freezing, although these messages have received hundreds of tweets along the lines of “it’s happening to me too” and “yea, I can’t play anyone online in multiplayer for long before things freeze”. Another one of Product Reviews readers mentioned, “I’ve literally had to turn off my PS3 7 times now from it freezing playing Advanced Warfare”.

As you can see within the tweet below, the issues are not related to just PlayStation consoles and this Twitter user has reached out for help after their digital Zero Day version started freezing and quitting on Xbox One.

We expect to see Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare receive update 1.05 soon, especially considering the bugs and random freezing reported already. Some gamers even complain about laggy lobbies, although that would most likely be related to server problems and require a hotfix.

Have you experienced any freezing, or cashing when playing the Zero Day version of COD: Advanced Warfare? If so, what console are you playing the latest game on?

I can’t finish a multiplayer game without it freezing at the end. This sucks. It’s ruining my whole experience of this game because I am just getting frustrated with restarting my system every 10 minutes. I’m on PS3.

BLOPS2 did the same thing and it took Treyarch a month to acknowledge there was even an issue. AW looks like a 3Arch game, and sucks like one too. No refunds on the PSN, so can we start a class action lawsuit for selling us a broken product and stealling our money?

$100 for this broken nonsense that freezes after every single game. LOL…. EVERY SINGLE GAME. What an absolute joke. I could’ve prestiged twice probably with all the xp I’ve lost from freezing and losing my progress after every game. This is pathetic.

I got the game on Monday and it worked fine on Monday and Tuesday. However Wednesday was a nightmare. I could play 2 or 3 games and the game would freeze when I was killed. The only way I could fix the issue was by hard restarting the console. The other issue is joining a game. I takes sometimes upto 20 seconds for a game to start. Meaning I can spectate other people starting the game while I’m sitting waiting to join after choosing my class. Sometimes I can start and be spawn killed before I’ve even blinked. However this… Read more »

Ps3 day zero version. It’s completely frozen 3 times and when it’s “working”, most things, like the pictures of the weapon, take far too long to load. By the time I can get to the create class menu, the next game has started.
Also when you start playing online, you spend up to a minute spectating.

This is a joke. My game freezes at the exact same point in campaign when I get out of the little subway bit ON THE VERY FIRST LEVEL. So over this crap. I haven’t tried online or survival yet but I’m assuming it’s not much better. I have no other issues with recently bought games on my PS3.

So who do we need to talk to in regards to getting a refund of my 60$ for this game that is UNPLAYABLE??? This is to much. You would have thought after all that happen with Ghosts they might have gotten things right this time!

SAme problem on 360 digital version. Start the game, search for a game and it finds one and freezes the system, can’t even pull up the Xbox Button menu, just gotta restart it. Hopefully they figure it out soon, I did manage to get one game in before a freeze (out of like 15 tries) and it seemed real fun.

What the hell is going on my PS3 keeps freezing up after two games or three in the pregame lobby. I have deleted the game and did a redownload on all of my content as well as saved game info thinking i may have a virus. Its not a virus, im starting to think i was just hustled out 60.00 dolars for this game. I was not able to receive my double xp because during the day of i had to delete and reinstall the game trying different ways to stop this issue and found out it not my system… Read more »

So far have had temporary freezing mid game after I kill someone , numerous times I have ended up jammed half in and half out of windows , walls , only clears after you die and respawn . Also getting the problem at the beginning of matches , after I select loadout I get put into the game as a spectator . Have to go to change loadout and… Read more »

Yup, ps3 freezing every 2_4 games…. it messed something else up, because my ps3 won’t go to my tv in 1080p anymore, it’s only in 420p now and it all started when this damm game froze and I had to hard reset the ps3… it’s very strange it happened like that…. so now if I can’t fix that i have to get a new tv. PLUS the lobby, starting games, xp points after the rounds and unlocked items are VERY SLOW. Along with creating a class. I really hope they fix this, the game was almost 80 bucks and I… Read more »

Then i return the next day around noon to get my fix in and the crashes began…i call it the Intermission 46 bug. Every intermission game i had to hard restart my ps3. My rig is a brand new ps3 slim and the game is running version 1.2.1115872.

I am one of the many that had to reset the PS3. Paid $99.99 to upload my 1st “Digital Game” ever. Did this so that when I upgrade to PS4 around Christmas I dont have to buy the game again. I have had only a few issues with it lagging in the game play..1 out of 4 games I will have to quit and load onto another “server” for a chance to play (and not just die). After about the 7th match it FREEZES / CRASHES and I have to restart. did this from DAY ZERO to now DAY ONE.… Read more »

Am finding that 4out of 10 games are suffering with lag . The worst problem is that I keep getting stuck inside walls or dropping off the map for no apparent reason . Also spawning is very glitchy . Also weopons have a mind of their own . Changing by themselves to another weopon with no input from me .
I am using a ps3 day zero copy of the game .

Keeps freezing on ps3. Also, problems with not spawning in after choosing your class. Please fix.

Tracy Morgan

I had to stop playing all together. After every game or every other game it would lock up in between games. Usually right after a match ends and your looking at your match achievements. Hosted a private match online with no problems. Bought my digital copy via PSN. For the PS3. At this rate, someone needs to compensate us. Completely ruined the excitement from the build up and hype of getting a new game. But the zero experience as well as. The dbl xp is a wasted lost cause. Where do I sign the petition? Sincerely Tracy…aka SharkyRivethead

Ps3.
LoLobbies are extremely laggy.
within a minute of playing multiplayer, my system freezes, and I have to reboot my Ps3.

It’s happened every time I try and play.

You know, I buy a game for $60, I kinda would like to play it. Unless SSledgehammerand Activision want to give out millions of refunds.

It’s kinda ridiculous.

(PS3) most lobbies are very laggy for me and my game freezes so i have to do a cold restart and joining lobbies takes FOREVER also theres a delay of the countdown timers it takes 2 seconds after the counter is up for something to happen. overall this is a fun game but this is really getting annoying

I’m on the phone with PS customer service on hold…. (GameStop printer f’ed up last night so now I have to call to get PS to give me my Season Pass code) Look up Playstation Article 5405 (I googled it). This should help with the freezing issue. The automated system gives Article 5405 as a fix so check it out
