Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare free cross-buy offer announced

Activision has announced a special cross-buy offer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for those purchasing on last-gen consoles.

Anyone purchasing Advanced Warfare on the Xbox 360 or PS3 will be able to download the Xbox One or PS4 equivalent for free.

As long as you are buying within the same console family (Xbox 360 to Xbox One or PS3 to PS4), you can download the digital new-gen version free of charge.

When you download the free digital copy on Xbox One or PS4, you’ll retain the licenses for both console versions. That means you can still go back to the last-gen version if you need to.

All your stats, gear and progress will be carried over from last-gen to new-gen versions. Plus if you purchase the Advanced Warfare Atlas Pro Edition for Xbox 360 and PS3, the DLC season pass will also be transferred to your Xbox One or PS4 edition.

“Until March 31st, 2015, if you buy a digital copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, you will be able to download the next-gen version within the same console family for free.”

However, there’s a caveat to this great offer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. For the free upgrade, you must have purchased a digital copy of the game on PS3 and Xbox 360.

“Anyone who purchases a physical copy of the game is not eligible for this offer”.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be released on November 4 for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
