It’s official Activision has blocked the Share Play functionality to the latest Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare video game. This comes as a big hit for some gamers looking to play the game from a friend who already owns a copy. We’re unsure if this option will be limited and released after the initial launch of the game comes to an end or not.
For those who are unaware, Sony’s PlayStation 4 video game console has a feature known as Share Play. With Share Play, gamers may play a copy of a video game that they do not own from a friend who already owns the game on their consoles. Essentially, the friend who owns the game will have their PlayStation 4 host the game. The content and gameplay is streamed to the console that does not have the actual copy of whichever desired game.
This Share Play feature only lasts one hour per session but is unlimited therefore gamers can start back up their session right after another. Sony did state back when the feature was announced that all PlayStation 4 games would have the Share Play option. However, publishers have the ability to censor their game making Share Play useless which is the case for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Looks like if you want to play the latest Call of Duty video game installment, you will be forced into dishing out the money for an actual copy. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is available right now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
