We know that everyone was waiting for a big change, and finally, the highly-anticipated Caldera map is here, so you can hunt your foes in this new paradise-like theater of operations.

As with most games, Warzone Pacific has been affected by several bugs. but nothing that developers couldn’t keep up with and repair really quick.

However, Xbox players are now dealing with a new set of errors, as reported by multiple players on various forums and social media platforms.

Warzone fails for Xbox players that don’t have Xbox Gold

Everything was sort of going well for this new Call of Duty multiplayer map when creators pushed a new update that made a slight modification in the game’s database.

Judging from online reports, the Goldflake Network Service Error, because that’s what it’s called, is actually caused by a recent update that made an Xbox Live Gold subscription a requirement to play Warzone.

This could actually be a big deal if the gamer base feels that they have been forcefully pushed into purchasing even more services from Microsoft.

More so, considering that though players have been constantly complaining about this new issue, developers haven’t quite gotten around to dealing with it properly yet.

Can I fix this error myself?

Unfortunately, no you cannot do anything about this annoying issue, except maybe try one of the workarounds that other affected users shared online.

Keep in mind that these aren’t proven to function all the time, and the problem might still be there after you are done.

Other Warzone players said that the first is to simply restart their console or PC and attempt to load up Warzone Pacific again. While this doesn’t seem like the best of fixes, it has worked so some.

However, to get rid of the error message, players will want to perform a hard reset of their console or PC.

You can do this by either unplugging the system from its power and replugging it back in or holding down the power button to shut off the system.

After booting the system back up and head back into Warzone Pacific to see if the Goldflake error has been kept at bay.
