Activision Offers Free Upgrade To Next-Gen For COD: Advanced Warfare

For a limited time, Activision is offering last gen console owners a sweet deal to ease their transition to the new gen.

Through Activision's program to ease the transition between console generations, gamers who purchase a copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare digitally for the Xbox 360 by 31st March can download the version for Xbox One for free. The same goes for PlayStation fans, those who purchase the game digitally on PS3, can also download the PlayStation4 version for free.

This offer for full-game free upgrade within console family is limited to purchases of Xbox 360 and PS3 digital versions made by 31st March, 2015, and does not apply to physical game copies. Additionally, all multiplayer stats transfer. Plus, all DLC purchased for in-game use, including Season Pass transfers too for free, as long as players' Xbox Gamertag or PSN ID, remains the same.

Similar transition incentive programs are usually limited to discounts. To the extent of our knowledge, this is the first time a publisher offers a full switch for free.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launches worldwide 4th November. Anyone who purchases a physical or digital Day Zero version of the game can start playing as much as a day early, on Day Zero, Monday, 3rd November. Beyond the special early access to the game, the Day Zero Edition also comes with two custom weapons: the AK-12G Assault Rifle and Crossbow-B2, as well as Double XP on 3rd November. Additional offers may be available at retailer partners worldwide.
