Call Of Duty Elite To Become Free To Use

Activision will no longer charge for the use of the Call of Duty Elite service when Call of Duty: Black Ops II launches next month.

However, the service will no longer carry any free DLC, that will be available as a Season Pass consisting of four-map bundles which will cost you 4,000 MS points. The maps will be available individually at 1200 Microsoft Points.


“We’ve learned a lot in our first year of Call of Duty Elite, and we’re very proud that we over delivered on our commitment of playable content to our premium members,” said Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg.

Additional features for Elite have also been announced including ‘Zombie support’ for tracking your stats within the Black Ops spin off.

  1. Good for buyers of BlOps2 that it will feature the Elite enhancements at no extra charge. Then the season pass does work out good value for people that buy the DLC.

    Wonder if the competition from EA’s alternating releases of Bf & MoH has forced Activision’s hand?

    • Just read up, and he says “We’re not making this change because services are harder to market. We’re making this change because we think there is a greater benefit to making these services available to a wider audience”

  2. I’d didn’t use Elite much in the end, but it was still a good deal for me as it included all the DLC.

  3. Black Ops spin off? Errmmm pretty sure World At War brought us Zombie mode

    • It did, but it was nothing more than survival. The new one is supposed to be a fully fledged co-op mode with a story & stuff.

  4. 4,000 MSP, 1200 Microsoft Points?

    English, anyone?
