Select Xbox 360 season passes to transfer to Xbox One games for free

To follow-up on the bit of bad Xbox One news, comes some good news for those who plan on double-dipping with Xbox 360 and One games.

With the newly announced Xbox Season Pass Guarantee, select games from a number of publishers (Activision, EA and Ubisoft so far) will allow those who purchase a Season Pass on the Xbox 360 version of a game to also unlock the same content for the Xbox One version. So far, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Battlefield 4 will allow this Season Pass Guarantee arrangement, but apparently more will be announced in the near future.

You’ll have to own both versions of these games at one point for this to work, obviously.

Head on over to the Xbox Wire site for additional details.

Fans of Season Passes now have another reason to look forward to Xbox One with the Season Pass Guarantee program. With Season Pass Guarantee, you can purchase a Season Pass for a participating Xbox 360 title and automatically receive access to download the equivalent Xbox One Season Pass.* It’s simple.

Some of the biggest publishers, including Activision, Electronic Arts and Ubisoft, are lined up for the Season Pass Guarantee program, offering season pass content you can’t find anywhere else for blockbuster titles in 2013 and 2014. You’ll be able access exclusive season pass content on anticipated titles like “Call of Duty: Ghosts” and “Battlefield 4” on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

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.

Stay tuned as publishers and titles participating in the Season Pass program are announced in the coming months.

*Xbox Live members must own the same game on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One in order to receive Season Pass Guarantee benefits.
