Activision has confirmed in a FAQ on the official Call of Duty site that customers who choose to preorder and buy Ghosts digitally will get access to the Free Fall bonus map.

All games coming to next-generation consoles will have a digital download option, and now we’ve got confirmation that preorder bonuses will apply to digital downloads.

Q: If I pre-order Call of Duty: Ghosts digitally, do I still get the Free Fall map?

A.Yes, anyone who pre-orders Call of Duty: Ghosts for digital download will also receive the Free Fall downloadable bonus map.

You can read the full FAQ here.

UPDATE: @II_F0XH0UND_II raises a valid point regarding the Freefall map being available for next-gen digital downloads, however I’d find it odd if Freefall was only for current gen and not next-gen downloads..

We’ve reached out to Activision and will update this post when we get a response…

  • This is a rather large assumption on your part.

    It states specifically that pre-orders for Call of Duty: Ghosts via digital download will receive the content. This does not guarantee next-generation consoles. This only guarantees Steam at the moment. Until MSFT/SONY decide to reveal that we can pre-order digitally through their store, then it’s restricted to Steam.

    If it had said “…anyone who purchases Call of Duty: Ghosts for digital download will receive…,” then I would be thoroughly convinced and happy.

    Just my two cents.

      More to the point how are you going to pre-order the PS4 or Xbox One game digitally without an Xbox One or PS4!

      • Keshav Bhat

        Presumably, You preorder on the online or stores.

  • Shong

    And then a few months after the release, everyone will be able to play the map for free.

  • i wish i could get it

    Nah. I just preorder the game online.. Too bad my country doesn’t get Free Fall, I’m not going to buy from GameStop, since on my country they don’t have websites where to preorder

  • David Sync

    They better have a 24/7 playlist for it IF it’s a good map

  • FOX

    for PC only from STEAM?

    Is this discrimination towards players who want to have game boxes on their shelves? All my AAA shooters are purchased as physical copies ’cause I have this kinda mania in collecting.

    Why on earth do you have to pre-order digitally to get the map?

    Here’s one possible answer: Even the dev team don’t want this game to last long, so they are trying to decrease sales of physical copies. So that the game is more easily forgotten (just kidding)

    • kirbaaaay

      Because digital copies for games is the future.

      • MeisseN

        Eh.. I need to alter my opinions then

        • willow mouse

          I’d agree, I’m from an age where everything was physical (CDs, Cartridge computer games etc) and now I’m buying houses and having a baby it’s a freaking nightmare having all this stuff that I just can’t part with! My only issue is that (on PSN at least) the digital versions are exponentially more expensive yet have ZERO resale value.

    • Mick Hilvers

      I think you misread the article, Activision is confirming that digital preorders WILL ALSO get the map that physical preorder customers are already guaranteed. In my case this makes me happy because I have toddlers that love to scratch/lost my discs.

  • kirby_

    Well, thank god Activision confirms it days/weeks after it being put up on BO2’s advertisement page. For awhile there, I felt like Treyarch could have been the biggest liars!

  • thebulky1cometh

    Ah yes, the old “smoke and mirrors” advertising that has sadly become synonymous with Call of Duty. “24/7 nuke town” sound familiar?

  • Logan

    Where can I digitally preorder Ghosts for PS4?

  • tobias

    can i download free fall without pre order it?

    • willow mouse

      Did you ever find out?

  • JizzPudding

    Will the Free Fall Map transfer from Current-Gen when upgrading to Next-Gen?

  • Peso

    Does anyone know where ill find the code for ghost camo on bo2 if i preordered online?

  • willow mouse

    I can’t seem to find a way to obtain it without preordering. I don’t want to purchase both CoD:G and BF4, and I don’t want to preorder without trying them both, however this Free Fall map sounds right up my street.
