Not only are Xbox planning EA Access free play days, but from today until Sunday they will be hosting a Free Multiplayer Weekend. That’s right, for the first time Xbox is inviting all Live Members without Xbox Live Gold Membership to join up with friends and experience the full online multiplayer experience on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
Whats more, to really immerse yourself in the experience Xbox will also be giving all Live Members free access to try Rocket League for the entire weekend. This offer is live now, June 9th and will run through to June 12th. So what are you waiting for, it’s time to make your friends your allies.
Not yet bought Call of Duty: Ghosts because you’ve heard so much about the awful campaign that Infinity Ward has thrown together? Well, maybe you’ll be tempted by the Multiplayer offering as both Activision and Infinity Ward will chuck out a free multiplayer weekend for Call of Duty: Ghosts this weekend on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. A complete first for the franchise on Xbox Live, despite similar demo’s on Steam.
Ghosts’ free multiplayer weekend will be available from Friday March 7th 2014 until Monday March 10th 2014. The demo will include three multiplayer maps, Strikezone, Warhawk and Prison Break with available multiplayer modes: Search and Rescue, Domination and Team Deathmatch. You’ll also be able to trial the Infinity Ward copy-cat-zombies cooperative Extinction mode on Point of Contact.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is a great game, it is the best looking Multiplayer first person shooter on Xbox LIVE and currently the most played and purchased Xbox One title at the time of writing. The campaign is average and lacks the epic momentum and spectacular conclusions to the sub plots within the main story. It’s like going through the motions without the emotion, it’s Call of Duty, you know it’s Call of Duty – but you’re wondering around from one mission to the next thinking when is the big shocker about to come! Multiplayer though as always is a top designed affair and exactly the online Call of Duty experience you’d want delivered on a next-gen console.
