Call of Duty Elite Beta Now Live on the 360, PS3 Coming Soon

Posted by at 8:34 pm on July 14, 2011

Today Activision launched  the Call of Duty Elite Beta .

The plan had been to include PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, at this point only the two consoles will be supported during the Call of Duty Elite beta .

The FAQ also reveals that the beta is launching only on Xbox 360, but will soon bring PS3 players into the fold. There is no exact date for when PS3 players will get in, but at this point, the large majority of 360 players who signed up to participate aren’t in either, so there’s no reason to get angry over alleged console bias.

“There are two basic reasons for starting with Xbox 360,” the FAQ explains. “First, in order to better manage the beta and reduce variables we are launching with one platform as we begin our testing. Second, due to the past outage of the PSN we have not had as much time to internally develop and test the online functionality of Call of Duty Elite with PSN. It is important that we have thoroughly QA tested functionality before releasing to a public beta phase.”

Call of Duty Elite Will Super Charge the Call of Duty Experience in Three Key Ways

  • Connect: Call of Duty Elite gives players unprecedented control over their multiplayer experience. This is a true social gaming platform. Players can compete against friends, gamers of similar skill levels or interests, join groups and clans, and play in organized competitions. They can also track the performance, progress and activity of their personal network, both in the game itself as well as via custom mobile apps for iPhone, iPad and Android smart phones, tablets and on the web.
  • Compete: Call of Duty Elite hosts events and competitions for players of all skill levels on a regular basis; both in-game and real-world prizes will be awarded across the Call of Duty Elite player roster when the service goes live onNovember 8th.
  • Improve: Call of Duty Elite is ground zero for anyone who wants to improve their in-game skills. It dynamically tracks player statistics and performance down to the finest detail. It can show gamers how they compare to their friends or other players community-wide. The user-friendly tools and data will give gamers the insights they need to up their kill/death ratio in no time.

The Call of Duty Elite beta will test select features and functionality, including stat tracking, the use of custom player groups, competitive events and video sharing.  A major upgrade of new features will come to Call of Duty Elite at its official launch this November.
