If you buy Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare digitally on the last generation, you can upgrade to the shiny new versions once you get a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Plus, you'll keep all your gear and DLC.

Just as with Destiny, Activision is offering a free digital upgrade program for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

The official site states that if you buy the digital version of Advanced Warfare on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, you'll be able to upgrade to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version, respectively, anytime before March 31, 2015. The offer also extends to any Season Pass or DLC content, which has no deadline for upgrading. Any progress or upgrades you earn on the last-gen versions will transfer automatically to the new console once you upgrade. You can see full details along with download instructions here.

In addition, Sony has announced that the program will work the other way around as well, at least on PlayStation platforms. Advanced Warfare is being marked a cross-buy game, so if you buy the PS4 version, you also get the PS3 version. Microsoft has not yet announced if the Xbox version will offer a similar deal.

Activision had a similar program for Destiny, so either it was successful or this is continued testing of the waters. It's still a pretty good deal as we go through a transition period between console generations, so we can hope it marks a trend.
