The rumors of Activision charging additional fees for Call of Duty online multiplayer have been pretty persistent for the better part of the past year. Even when Activision has stated multiple times that they won't be charging for online play, it still keeps coming up.
Well, we can clear the air on this whole matter with the announcement of "Call of Duty: Elite," a free and paid service that is built specifically to take full advantage of Modern Warfare 3 and all future Call of Duty titles. Elite will launch with Modern Warfare 3 but there will be a public beta test this summer for Elite using Call of Duty: Black Ops. The official site will have more details soon.
Activision wasn't ready to talk about a price point, but a number of the features I'm going to detail for you will be part of the free service. As for the paid content, it will cost "less than any comparable online service for gaming or entertainment," according to Jamie Berger, VP of Digital at Activision. The service will also be an all-inclusive one, meaning that all digital content released for Modern Warfare 3 -- such as map packs -- will be delivered to you at no extra cost.
The team behind Elite, Beachhead, is a new standalone team at Activision that is dedicated to "evolving the [Call of Duty] service year-round." The service will provide worldwide, 24/7 programming and customer service for all the features that promise to enrich your experience.
