Good news Call of Duty gamers, it seems that Activision has announced that with the launch of Black Ops 2 in November, the Call of Duty Elite service will be free for all players. Prior to this, Call of Duty Elite was available as a free or paid subscription service, with the paid version offering users access to monthly features such as map updates, increased video storage space, access to certain challenges and competitions as well as access to the other features available for the free version.
While we’re sure that gamers out there are rejoicing at the free Elite service, there is of course a catch. Instead of paying $50 for a year’s subscription and receiving content on a monthly basis, you can choose to either purchase the maps individually at 1200 MP each, or you can access all four planned DLC packs via Season Pass which is worth 4000 MP. Activision has also announced that for Black Ops 2, Elite features will also include Player HQ, Clan HQ, Zombies Support, Call of Duty Elite TV and Social Sharing and Notifications. For current Call of Duty players with the paid subscription, once their subscription runs out, it will be reverted to this free service.
