Great news for Xbox owners who want to try out Call of Duty: Ghosts before purchasing the game. Publishers Activision in partnership with Microsoft will be hosting the first ever Call of Duty multiplayer demo for Xbox Live Gold users this weekend on the Xbox One and Xbox 360. This confirms the rumor from a few days ago.
The demo will allow players to play through certain maps and modes from the retail game for free. The multiplayer demo starts this Friday on the 7th of March, and ends on Monday which is the 10th of March. This is obviously to take attention from the release of Titanfall, that comes out on the 13th of March.
Titanfall will be in direct competition with Call of Duty and is made by ex-Call of Duty developers who left Infinity Ward after the release of Modern Warfare 2. EA will be publishing the title and they are heavily marketing the game. Titanfall will be release first on Xbox One, and at the end of March on the Xbox 360.
Demoing games is perfect for people on a budget and those who aren’t able to buy every other game. Some games are just plain bad like High Rollers Casino on the original Xbox which scored a 1/10 on IGN. Online Casino games found on the internet are much better.
The aforementioned maps include fan favorites like Strikezone, Warhawk and Prison Break while the three playable modes will include Search and Rescue, Domination and Team Deathmatch. For Extinction mode players will be able to play the Point of Contact episode.
The DLC multiplayer demo will take place later this month starting on the 21st of March and ending on that coming Monday. The weekend will feature the first of four DLC packs to be released for Ghosts called Onslaught. Onslaught was recently released for PC and Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 owners after being Xbox One and Xbox 360 exclusive for a month.
This is perfect for people to a get feel for the game, more gaming companies should do this (I’m looking at you DICE and EA).
