Get ready for the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare free weekend. If you haven’t checked out Activision’s latest, this weekend gives you the perfect opportunity.
If you own an Xbox One or a PS4, then you just earned five full days of the newest Call of Duty. According to GameRant, the Infinite Warfare free weekend will last from Thursday, December 15 through Tuesday, December 20.
Despite what you might think, this isn’t just a timed demo or a multiplayer-only weekend. This free trial includes the full game. That means the campaign, multiplayer, and the zombie mode.
Why would they do this so soon after the game’s release? Activision needs those sales. Compared to last year’s Black Ops 3, sales of Infinite Warfare are down by 50%. This is due to several factors. Loyal fans feel like it is too much of a departure, while others feel like it didn’t change enough.
Working against them were two other big shooters with similar release dates. Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 released to critical acclaim. Consumers only have so much money to spend and many chose from these two.
Regardless, there is little reason not to take advantage of the Infinite Warfare free weekend. Five days is plenty of time to beat the campaign, and still get plenty of time in multiplayer and zombie mode. It certainly feels like Christmas to us. Thanks, Activision.
