Activision has announced its new Call of Duty service, titled Call of Duty Elite, to launch with the third installment in its hit Modern Warfare series on November 8th. The service will offer social networking features and statistical tracking for subscribers, and will be kept up to date with the game by two-way communication. Players will be able to compete in organized tournaments, keep in touch with friends, join groups and clans, find players with similar interests and skill levels, and participate in community events. Also included will be a sort of “personal coach” that tracks player’s statistics and matches and offers personal advice to improve their playing, allowing the player to keep a “career record” similar to Bungie’s similar service for the Halo games.
Many features of Call of Duty Elite will be available to all Modern Warfare 3 players. Those who want exclusive content, increased functionality, and exclusive entertainment programming will be able to upgrade to a premium membership for an as-yet-undisclosed charge. Activision aims to make the service accessible through web browsers, mobile devices, and game consoles. A beta will be released this summer for use with Call of Duty: Black Ops.
