Activision’s Dan “One of Swords” Amrich has shared a few new details pertaining to digital copies of Call of Duty: Ghosts.
According to his latest blog entry, physical and digital copies of Call of Duty: Ghosts on both current- and next-gen platforms will not differ in any way from their physical counter-parts, save for its delivery method. That includes the bonus pre-order map, Free Fall.
“PS3 gamers will find it bundled with their digital preorder, and Xbox 360 gamers who are enrolled in the Xbox Live Rewards program and buy the digital edition of Call of Duty: Ghosts before November 18, 2013 will receive a Free Fall download token via email after that date (tokens will likely start going out the following week),” Amrich wrote.
He also noted that the download size for Call of Duty: Ghosts will be anywhere between 9GB and 13.5GB, depending on your region, due to localization efforts. The same can be expected for those wishing to install all of the data from a physical disc on to their hard drive. It is, however, significantly reduced from the 40GB PC version of the game.
