Call of Duty: Ghosts multiplayer demo on Xbox One and 360 this weekend

For several years now, Activision has occasionally opened up the multiplayer side of Call of Duty games to everyone on PC through Steam for special weekend events. It's always been more conservative on consoles, though. The first multiplayer demo for consoles finally arrives this weekend, giving a taste of Call of Duty: Ghosts' MP on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The demo will open up at 10am Pacific on Friday, March 7, then be available until Monday. Folks can shoot faces for as long as they please over the weekend, but then it'll all shut down.

This console demo's still a bit conservative, too. It'll only contain three maps--Strikezone, Warhawk, and Prison Break--along with three regular multiplayer modes--Search & Rescue, Domination, and Team Deathmatch--and the co-op Extinction mode Point of Contact.
