Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is now available for players who digitally pre-ordered the game on PlayStation 4. But in traditional CoD launch night fashion, the online servers are down.

If you’ve already downloaded Modern Warfare on PS4, you can attempt to load into the game. But you’ll be greeted by a “Connecting to Online Services” message.

After a few seconds, you’ll then receive another message that says “Connection Failed” and “unable to access online services.” You’ll have two options after this: You can either hit “Retry” to try connecting to the online services again or you can hit “Go Offline” to access campaign, local multiplayer, or local co-op.

It’s unclear exactly why the servers are down right now, but most longtime Call of Duty fans are used to this happening every year when the newest game is released. Activision’s support page says that online service are online for all platforms, however. That means players might just need to wait patiently for the servers to come back online.

This article will be updated if Activision or Infinity Ward release any updates on Modern Warfare’s online services.

Update Oct. 25 8am CT: Infinity Ward tweeted that “servers are coming back online now, and everyone should be able to begin launching Modern Warfare” last night at 11pm CT.
