"Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" Beta gameplay starts today but unfortunately, day one ended in frustration as gamers report PlayStation 4 network errors.

Publisher Activision admits that "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" suffered because of untimely maintenance in PlayStation 4 network. They also did not give any tentative schedule yet if when they can resume beta launch. However, a support page was set to answer queries and provide information. Then a follow up announcement was released requesting gamers to keep tuned for further developments.

Daily Star reported that several gamers stormed the support page asking for explanations. Other who were apparently caught unaware reported error message while trying to access "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare." All of these concerns were met with singular response carrying the word "delayed." What is unclear for now however, is how long this delay is going to take.

Meanwhile, PlayStation responded on their part as well. Although there was no direct reference to any game nor "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" in particular, Sony said that they are aware of apps, games and other online content being affected. Then they capped the statement by assuring that they are working round-the-clock to resolve the issue soon. According to Express, any try as of press time to access the game only leads to error code or LUMEN error.

The current "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" beta run will end on Oct 17, Monday. Activision did not release any extension notice yet nor clarification if those affected areas can avail of additional day to make up for the delay. Also, there are schedules for the next beta run in Europe starting on Oct 21 but Activision is sure that everything will run smoothly by then. Gamers who can access the game are those who opt to preorder on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4 consoles.

Another benefit for those who made preorders is the eligibility to download the game. This is an opportunity to grab a head start as well considering that "Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare" comes in 19GB content.
