First free weekend in 'Call of Duty' history.
Activision, Infinty Word and Microsoft will offer Xbox Live members a chance to try out the multiplayer modes of their latest, 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' this weekend for free on both the Xbox One and 360.
Surprisingly, this offer is described as free for all Xbox Live members rather than just Gold members.
"For the first time in Call of Duty® history, Activision and Infinity Ward, in partnership with Xbox, will be hosting a free Call of Duty®: Ghosts multiplayer demo on Xbox Live this coming weekend. Starting Friday, March 7th at 10:00 a.m. (PST) and going through Monday, March 10th, gamers on Xbox One and Xbox 360 will be able to jump on Xbox Live and try out Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer at no cost. The demo will include three multiplayer maps - Strikezone, Warhawk, and Prison break; three multiplayer modes - Search & Rescue, Domination and Team Deathmatch; and the original Extinction game mode - Point of Contact. Come Friday, gamers will just need to sign-in to Xbox Live, download the Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer demo, and get right into a match against friends, family, and anyone else enjoying the free demo weekend."
From the High-Def Digest Review of 'Call of Duty: Ghosts:'
"Multiplayer changes are clinical and direct, encouraging the hardest of the hardcore to play hard and score mad kills on all the noobs, while the word newcomer has no place in such an uninviting place. The classic recipe still works. It's still enthralling in spurts, but seems as unchanging as any past glory."
