It's unknown the number of people prepared to purchase the membership based element of COD Elite, however, there is no shortage of curiosity in the approaching Black Ops Elite beta.
Activision reports that more than 2 million individuals have subscribed to the beta in under two weeks. Elite had been officially reported at the end of May subsequent numerous rumors that the online subscription service of some type was coming. It initially sparked a backlash when it was misconstrued that users would have to pay for things like stat tracking and social networking that are free elsewhere. Those concerns have since been addressed with Activision making it clear what are the free features of COD Elite service.
It is still unknown just how much the premium service will set you back or the many benefits it will offer. Currently, free usage of downloadable material and a Call of Duty web series are some of the perks we know of that Elite customers are going to be entitled to. All the features of COD Elite paid version will be unveiled on September 2 & 3 at the new Call Of Duty XP event. Participants will have the opportunity to try out both the new MW3 multiplayer and Spec Ops modes as well as compete in a $1 million tournament.
Elite is essentially being developed around Modern Warfare 3. The beta, however, is going to be operated with Black Ops. It's formally planned to start on July 14 and mostly involves the use of a web client instead of something you will download on the gaming console of your selection. The lucky participants of the upcoming beta will be notified by email in the days and week to come.
