Call of Duty: Elite was announced earlier this week by Activision as an online service. It promises deep statistic tracking, access to downloadable content, social networking features, and a video series with “top Hollywood talent.”
Call of Duty: Elite will come in two forms, a premium version and a free version. There has been some confusion as to what you get from this. Today Activision released an FAQ for Elite which tells you what you will be getting, when it releases with Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in November this year. The details are below:
[box_light]-Access Elite through the Web, as well as via free applications for Android and iOS devices like smartphones and tablets.
-Track and share with friends in-game statistics like kill/death ratio, score-per-minute, win percentage, and more, all shown in “easy to understand” charts and infographics.
-Create custom leaderboards.
-View heat maps indicating dangerous areas in levels where players die the most.
-Upload and share videos from the game’s Theater mode.
-Customize a loadout, which includes choosing weapons, attachments, and perks, and transfer it to Modern Warfare 3 via Web or mobile.
-Join groups with common interests.
-Track Call of Duty career progress, beginning with Call of Duty: Black Ops.
-Be placed into groups based on interests, as designated by Facebook profile listings.[/box_light]
Activision said that the list of features above “is just the beginning” and that it will “continue to evolve”.
Further, Activision calmed gamers’ fears that Call of Duty: Elite would sell competitive advantages, as the publisher confirmed that weapons and levels will not be for sale via Elite.
“While Call of Duty: Elite wants to help people become better players, there’s still only one way to level up to new weapons, XP, and prestige, and that’s to earn it in game.”
