Each and every year the latest entry in the Call of Duty series arrives as fans clamour to play the latest release from the ever-popular Activision franchise.
This year we’ve been treated to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III, the third instalment to the reboot trilogy that began in 2019. However, there were rumours that Modern Warfare III was intended to be DLC and judging by its lack of PlayStation Platinum Trophy, those rumours look to be true.

In recent years, Activision has provided Call of Duty fans the opportunity to play the latest single player campaign early, and Modern Warfare III is no exception, as long as you’re able to cough up the cash to purchase the more pricey Vault Edition. On 2 November, this was the day that those fans were able to jump into the latest single player campaign early. Unfortunately, that was not initially possible, even for those who acquired the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III Vault Edition.
So what exactly is the issue? Well, reports are making the rounds that when trying to play the Modern Warfare III campaign it’s asking to “insert a disc” for Modern Warfare II on the digital version of the game. For reference, to access the MWIII content, you have to boot up the MWII game to access it from the dedicated hub. One of our team members at GAMINGbible experienced a very similar issue.
It was figured out that additional MWII files related to the campaign were required to be downloaded in order to play the MWIII campaign. Twitter account Call of Duty Updates also reports that an update is required to access the content.
I also encountered something odd when accessing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II/III on the early access launch day. When I logged in, my multiplayer progress was at zero, which was a little concerning. After several minutes of panic, I realised that the issue was with me having both my PlayStation and Xbox profiles linked to my Call of Duty account. This is odd because you’re supposed to be able to link multiple accounts for crossplay purposes.
When it comes to Call of Duty, PlayStation is my main and seeing as I’m yet to play MWII/III on my Xbox, I unlinked that profile. Thankfully when my Xbox profile was unliked, after I restarted the game all my PlayStation multiplayer progress returned. So if this happens to you, it might be worth keeping that in mind.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III releases in its full form on 10 November on PC, PlayStation and Xbox.
