Is the $50 a year payment to Activision worth it over the free version of Elite available to all Call of Duty owners? You can read below and decide for yourself.
Now, Activision has revealed all the details you need to know about the Elite program. Here’s what a paid subscription to Call of Duty Elite gets you: Modern Warfare 3 DLC, for the rest of the year. Activision says the first year will have over 20 pieces of content, from map packs to new modes, that would cost over $60 purchased a la carte.
- Daily and weekly competitions and events with both physical and digital prizes
- Eight times the video sharing capacity (I’m assuming this means storage)
- Leveling up your clan, though you can start and join one as a free player
- Access to strategy and tips for maps, guns, and modes produced by expert CoD players, which will definitely not be ripped and rehosted the day they go up
- Elite TV: Web video episodes featuring the likes of Ridley and Tony Scott (producing a show pitting real-life rivals against each other in CoD) and Will Arnett and Jason Bateman (producing a show where celebrities talk smack over user-submitted videos)
The other Elite is free for everyone: mad-deep stat tracking, heat maps for kills and deaths on each level, video sharing, and more.
