Activision is taking a page out of its own book and throwing Call of Duty fans that haven’t yet upgraded to new consoles a bone.
That’s right, if you pick up a digital copy of this year’s Advanced Warfare for either the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, you’ll get a free upgrade to a new-gen copy within the same console family. That means PlayStation 3 begets a PlayStation 4 download and Xbox 360 in turn unlocks an Xbox One version.
What’s more, each console will retain its respective license and you’ll still be able to play online with your buddies on new and old boxes (with frickin’ lasers!) after you do the deed. The offer expires at the end of next March, and like with Destiny before it, premium content like season passes will carry over too. Sounds like a pretty great deal unless, of course, you were planning to pick up one of those special edition Xbox Ones.
