“If you pre-loaded CoD: AW and you’re experiencing issues with the game, you must delete all pre-load files from your system and re-download all Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare content.” That’s the advise from Sony to all PS4 gamers experiencing issues with their digital pre-order of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
