Microsoft have announced what they’re calling the Season Pass Guarantee. This new initiative means that players who purchase a season pass for “selected” Xbox 360 titles, will see the same content unlock on their Xbox One console.
Three of the platform’s biggest publishers – Activision, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft – are already on board with the scheme, meaning yesterday’s news that both Call Of Duty: Ghosts’ and Battlefield 4’s DLC will be cross-generation is surely a sign of good things to come, especially as gamers migrate to their new consoles in 2014.
“Season Pass Guarantee makes transitioning from Xbox 360 to Xbox One an easier and smoother process, so you don’t have to worry about which console you’re playing games on or repurchasing your existing add-ons on Xbox One.” said Microsoft.
Aside from Battlefield 4, confirmed yesterday via the PlayStation Blog, there’s no news yet as to whether Sony are planning something similar for the PlayStation family as a whole, but I’m sure we’ll know soon enough.
