Activision and Infinity Ward start the Infinite Warfare beta for the second weekend, on the PS4 and the first on the Xbox One. This runs through Monday and the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release date is in November.

We are already seeing a number of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta problems including installation problems, slow Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta downloads and the beta not starting when it should. Add in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare matchmaking problems and connectivity issues and it can leave you frustrated.

These annoying Infinite Warfare beta problems can prevent you from playing or prevent you from enjoying your time with the limited beta.

Here are the most common Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta problems and potential solutions for these issues. We’ll update this throughout the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta to help you get the most out of these two weekends.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta Code Problems

One of the biggest Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta problems is a missing Infinite Warfare beta code.

You need a Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta code to sign up with Activision, unless you bought the game digitally or are on PS4.

This code is on your receipt or was emailed to you by the retailer you bought the new Call of Duty game from. You need to contact the retailer if this is missing or if it doesn’t work.

Don’t try your local store, but instead reach out to the corporate support on social media or by phone. This is how to register for the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta to get your token.

Infinite Warfare Token Problems

The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta start is late.

Once you sign up for the beta you will get six Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta tokens that you can enter on your Xbox One to download the game. One is for you and the rest are for you to share with friends.

We’ve heard from users who cannot find these online and who share a code with a friend that the system says has already been used.

If you get an error that the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta token saying that it was used you may have a code from before the pre-load actually started.

If you don’t see your codes checking your email for a message from [email protected] Codes shown online during the pre-load may not work anymore.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta Installation Problems

You may need to free up space or restart to fix Infinite Warfare beta installation problems.

If you have trouble installing the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta on PS4 or Xbox One you can try several steps to make things work.

The first thing to try is turning your console off and back on. This can solve many issues. Another thing to check is that you have enough storage space. We had to delete some trials and older game to make room.

Slow Infinite Warfare Beta Downloads

You may see very slow Infinite Warfare beta downloads during Friday. Even with a pre-load option many gamers are just now starting to look into how to download the Infinite Warfare Beta.

If your download is slow you can pause it and restart it. Sometimes this will get a faster connection. You should also try plugging into your router or modem instead of using wireless as that will be faster.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta Won’t Start

If you see an error message that your Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare beta cannot start because the beta hasn’t started yet, you aren’t alone. You need to restart your PS4 and then try again.

This should solve the problem for most users. If not, double check the time and you may need to wait a few minutes as all the servers come online. There is a short delay.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta Matchmaking Problems

If you can’t get into a game and you can’t get into a game with other players it is likely an issue with Activision and Infinity Ward. Activision fixed this during the first beta weekend swiftly, so if it appears again you will likely see a swift resolution. In this case there isn’t anything for you to do.

Infinite Warfare Crashes When Accepting Invite on Xbox One

Expect Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Xbox One party issues.

This is a beta and you will need to deal with some issues. One of these is an issue that the game can freeze or crash if you accept an invite to join another player on Xbox One when you are on different screens.

To avoid this you need to make sure you are all in the same menu and on the same screen before sending invites or accepting them. The game is also experiencing issues if you use the Microsoft Friends app to send invites, so you should do it n the game.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Release Date

The official Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release date is November 4th. This is a Friday, but the game actually comes out on Thursday in many places, timed to a midnight Eastern release. 

You can pre-order Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare at Amazon, GameStop, Best Buy, Target and other retailers for release date pickup in store and still for release date delivery. 

There is no early Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release date, like we saw with Battelfield 1 and with many EA games.

If you already have early Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered access on PS4 you can play online sporadically as the servers are up for testing.

    ist echt der Hammer. Meinte die da gehen nur ein paar Leute on. Hatte immerhin in den letzten 5hmal die Möglichkeit für 2 min zu spielen. Dann war ich auch schon wieder draußen. Echt schade. Viel hype und Gedöns um eine nicht funktionierende Beta. Kleinigkeiten wären ja ok. Aber sowas…..naja kotzt mich an

    This didn’t happen on black ops and I can believe that they haven’t learnt to solve these issues and keep us updated with what’s going on they make us pre order these games and they can’t provide a decent tester for us I was so looking forward to this looks like I might just give up on this and do to battlefield 1 next week least they keep us updated

    I pre-ordered infinite warfare legacy edition purchasing the full price $127.68 but yet never got a beta. Then I went on streams to get a free one when I finally got one I tried to download it and it said “Cannot Download”. I just want to know how I went from pre ordering legacy edition of game and to not getting a early beta access. The only thing that was right so far before the game release was a modern warfare remastered campaign early access.

    I got a code from a friend took me about 3 hours to download and then once I got in it took me 30 minutes to find a game I can only play in defender domination and kill confirmed and when I do join a game it lags so bad to a point where I see an enemy and I instantly die but my ping is at around 30 and I have a four bar connection is it servers? Also I have his problem when it comes to overwatch as well but I can play rocket laugue and battlefield one beta fine so is it the games or my console/connection please help!

    Also some minor glitches I’ve experienced while playing the game

    1.) Kill cam border sticks around after I skip it and I can move around and shoot it just replaces the hud with that.

    2.) on the space station map my body moves through walls after I’m dead

    3.) I’ve only played on the space station map the other two don’t work for me at all

    4.) I can’t play team death match

    I’ve been playing just fine. I sure hope the graphics are not what the game looks like when done, at least what i have seen thus far in multiplayer. This looks like a PS3 title at the moment, is it rather embarrassing. Lets see when the game releases at full go! Fingers crossed!
