The announcement of a season pass, which will net players a discount on 4 upcoming DLC map packs, isn’t the only news to hit Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. According to the developers, Call of Duty Elite will be free for the game, thus allowing gamers new and old to take advantage of it’s online services and features. This will happen as Black Ops 2 releases on November 13th.
Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg stated, “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. What we have realised is that several of the Call of Duty Elite services which are currently only available to our premium members for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are things that would further unite, engage and delight our player community. So we are going to make them free for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.”
So you’ll now be able to track game states, challenges, modify classes, start clans, compare the number of zombies killed and much, much more. This includes Call of Duty Elite TV, which provides developer tips along with overviews on custom classes.
