Call Of Duty Elite Beta Will Start Today
Call of Duty Elite, the online service for Activision's best-selling military shooter series, is about to be opened to player testing. Activision's Dan Amrich says that the first invites are being sent out today.
"The first wave starts Thursday, July 14. There is no set hour during the day for that to happen, so thereís no need to camp out at your computer," Amrich said on his blog. "Also, itís been said several times before, but it bears repeating: the first wave will be very small. It will grow with time, so you might not get in immediately. Donít let that worry you; slow and steady is part of the plan. It has to be, or this wonít work at all."
Amrich added that they're attempting to invite people "more or less in the order they signed up." There are other factors, though, so it's not strictly first-come, first-serve. Also, two million players signed up in total so note that it may take awhile for you to get your own invite.
Call of Duty Elite acts as a social network for the series, giving players an easy way to form groups and clans. It will be a site of competitions and events with both in-game and real world rewards.. The service also tracks your stats, show you how you stack up against the rest of the community, and offer tips on how to improve.
Elite will launch alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in November.
