Activision has announced a online subscription service for Call of Duty called Call of Duty Elite. Planned to work with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, out this November on HD platforms, the service will charge players a monthly fee for additional features in online multiplayer.
Elite will provide extra content including new maps, performance analysis tools, and other nuggets not offered on-disc or in stores.
Activision has yet to put a price on the service, but they expect it to cost less than comparable online fees, such as Netflix’s $7.99-a-month instant streaming package.
Activision CEO Bobby Kotick is not worried about the potentially negative response from gamers regarding the Elite service, as players can still play online without subscribing to the platform.
