COD TV included in Elite subscription
Wednesday 01 June 2011
Call of Duty Elite's subscription service will count a web TV series among its membership perks.
Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg is promising the involvement of "top Hollywood talent," according to an interview with Keith Stuart of The Guardian.
Both Mortal Kombat and Alan Wake commissioned live-action web series that debuted in the lead up to their own retail launches, while the Halo: Legends collection of animated shorts arrived ahead of Halo: Reach.
Call of Duty Elite is to offer prize tournaments, replays, social elements and strategy tools.
Some aspects will be free to all players, while others will be subscription only.
A public beta will run before the service launches on November 8, concurrent with the sale date of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
