Charlie INTEL: A Call of Duty, Modern Warfare, Black Ops BLOG

Call of Duty ELITE is an additional service that is NOT required for you to have. It is just an “add-on” to make the Multiplayer gaming much more enjoyable. If you don’t want the ELITE service then you can still enjoy every feature everyone else gets by paying $60 for Modern Warfare 3. So here are some of the FREE services ELITE has to offer for the community. There is absolutely NO charge for Call of Duty multiplayer!

1. Theater – Upload 30 second videos to YouTube.
2. Career Stats
3. Heat Maps
4. Load Outs – Study, Edit, and Push to game from any linked device
5. Facebook Friend Import
6. Personal Leaderboards
7. Weapon Performance Stats
8. Cross Device Messaging
9. Study Other Player Profiles
10. Groups
11. Clan Support
12. Interact Everywhere- Web, Mobile (iOS and Android), & Console

Activision and Beachhead Studio have said that there will be a “Premium membership” for users who want it. So what does that include? Well, since the premium membership is deeply integrated into Modern Warfare 3, they cannot talk about that yet. But what they have confirmed is that if you get the paid service then you get ALL the DLC content.

*You can still buy the DLC with or without the paid service! There is NO advantage of getting the premium membership in regular playing of Call of Duty online.

If you still have questions or doubts about this service, sign up for the FREE beta of Call of Duty® Elite at The beta will begin on July 14th in “waves” of customers.
