Starting today, Activision is making Call of Duty : Infinite Warfare free to play for both Xbox One and PS4 users. This move is possibly due to several reports suggesting the under-performance of the game’s sales.
The game’s five-day free trial starts on the 15th December from 6pm UK time. You can download the game free of charge and try all three main modes until 6pm Tuesday, 20th December. An Xbox Live Gold membership is required to take advantage of the free event.
We’ve seen other games host free weekends, but this feels particularly generous, especially for a game that was launched only a month ago.
Gamers can take on two full missions from the game’s campaign and be able to enjoy multiplayer modes until they reach a rank of 15. Furthermore, they can try the Zombies mode until rank 3.
If you find the game stimulating enough during your free trial, all your progress will be carried over to the full edition of the game. Just make sure to free up a massive amount of memory from your machine as the download file for the trial is humongous — 60GB to be exact.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare by Infinity Ward has given Activision’s military shooter genre a push in the right direction. It introduces futuristic weapons and multiplayer abilities along with space vehicle combat. But even with these tremendous features, the game failed to attain a decent consumer base.
Basically, Activision is aiming to give players a taste of the game for free. And to be fair, it is a sensible strategy, as there exists a huge possibility gamers will switch to the full version before the trial period ends.
