The launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has sent millions flocking to enjoy the benefits of online play.
And in order to make the most of your experience, you really need to sign up for Activision's new subscription service, Call of Duty Elite. Those who purchased the Hardened Edition of MW3 got a year's membership free, and many others are signing up.
The result? According to Beachhead Studio boss Chacko Sonny, registration requests are absolutely through the roof :
"We are proud to say that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has launched and millions of people are already playing online. Registration requests for our new live service Call of Duty Elite are exceeding even our most optimistic expectations, which is creating a bottleneck and some players have not been able to register. We have already registered hundreds of thousands of players and we are working around the clock to increase our capacity as quickly as possible.”
Sonny added that your gameplay data is safe, and the team is "working around the clock to accommodate every player who wants to be part of Call of Duty Elite." Remember, at its core, this is a free service; you only have to pay the $50 premium if you wish to have all the fringe benefits. For those who love MW3 and the Call of Duty brand, it's definitely something worth looking into.
