Activision has claimed that the paid-for 'premium' membership to its new Call Of Duty Elite service will cost less than "any comparable online entertainment service currently in the market".
Activision detailed the service earlier today. It will offer both a more 'social network'-style online interface for CoD online players and tournaments, in which players can win real and digital prizes.
In addition, Elite will "provide players with a dynamic strategy guide that tracks their statistics and performances down to the most minute details", which Activision likens to a "personal strategy coach".
The publisher promises that "many key features" of Elite will be available free of charge. However, a premium membership will also be launched on November 8 - the day Modern Warfare 3 is released across the globe.
No pricing or content details have been confirmed, but Activision said in a statement that the paid-for option will provide "a wide range of state-of-the-art services, exclusive entertainment programming and all-inclusive game content for less than the cost of any comparable online entertainment service currently in the market".
