Along with the release of multi-player information, Sledgehammer introduced the brand new Day Zero Edition. Players who pre-order Advanced Warfare can pick up the game 24 hours before the scheduled release time at their local retailer or online via the digital pack.
In that 24 hour time the servers will be up for gamers to get a feel for the maps and weapons of Advanced Warfare. In addition to getting a head start on in game knowledge, Double XP will be available for that 24 hour period. That way players can get a jump on leveling their in game character.
In addition to this, anyone who gets the Day Zero edition will receive two bonus weapons and an advanced arsenal for exclusive in-game customization. This is all for no additional charge and comes standard with the game if you pre-order it.
This is huge for the hardcore fans that like to grab a head start and get the game as early as possible. You can pick up or download your copy as soon as the clock strikes midnight Sunday night the week of release. Check with your local retailer because terms and conditions do vary depending on location.
