Call of Duty Elite será gratuito para Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Sin Comentarios »

Activision acaba de anunciar que todos los servicios de Call of Duty Elite serán gratuitos a partir del lanzamiento de Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Recordemos que hasta el momento, una suscripción premium a Elite ofrece un nivel adicional de los servicios y garantiza entre otras cosas el acceso anticipado a los paquetes de mapas descargables. Pero parece ser con la llegada de la nueva entrega de la serie las cosas cambiaran y el acceso anticipado al DLC ya no estará disponible.

Por otra parte los usuarios de Xbox 360 tendrán la posibilidad única -al menos de momento- de acceder al Pase de Temporada, por 4000 Microsoft Points o 49,99 dólares. Esto les permitirá descargar cuatro paquetes de mapas que se lanzaran durante el 2013 y que individualmente contaran 1200 Microsoft Points o 14,99 dólares. Lo que significa que los usuarios de la consola Microsoft se ahorraran unos 10 dólares aproximadamente.

Llamativamente el Pase de temporada no fue anunciado para PS3, Wii U o PC y, de hecho, en el comunicado de prensa se aclara lo siguiente:

“el pase de temporada y los paquetes de mapas descargables pueden no estar disponibles en todas las plataformas”

Suena raro y parece poco probable, pero con esa frase Activision estaría dando a entender que no ofrecerá DLC en todas las plataformas.

Además confirmo algunas de las características que ahora serán gratuitas:

  • HQ Player — Estadísticas Call of Duty: Black Ops II de jugadores, incluyendo información de las partidas como mapas y los datos recientes de las partidas; podremos modificar ampliamente las clases como nunca antes utilizando Call of Duty: ELITE.
  • Clan HQ — Únete a un clan existente o crea uno propio, invita a amigos y participa en concursos contra clanes con premios digitales.
  • Soporte para Zombis — Para los millones de fans de Zombies, ahora podrás seguir tus estadísticas personales del modo Zombies y compararlo con otros jugadores de todo el mundo.
  • Call of Duty Elite TV — Puesta en marcha con soporte para tabletas con Call of Duty: Black Ops II, el nuevo Call of Duty Elite TV ofrecerá un renovado enfoque en la comunidad con consejos para desarrolladores y estrategia de programación, resúmenes de clases personalizadas y mucho más
  • Notificaciones y participación social — nuevo sistema de notificaciones con llamada del deber de la élite, puede mantenerse actualizado con lo que está pasando en Call of Duty: Black Ops II, así como comunicarte directamente con tu clan.

Junto al comunicado con los detalles la editora publico un trailer que pueden ver tras el corte.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II sale el 13 de Noviembre para Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 y Windows PC. La versión de Nintendo Wii U estará disponible desde el 18 de noviembre en América y a partir del 30 en Europa.

ACTIVISION TO MAKE ALL CALL OF DUTY® ELITE SERVICES FOR CALL OF DUTY®: BLACK OPS II FREE

Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC to be Sold Separately via the
Discounted Season Pass Bundle or a la carte as Individual Map Packs

Call of Duty Elite Service Set to Unite Fans with New Features – Player and Clan HQ,
Zombies Leaderboards, All-New Call of Duty Elite TV and More

Santa Monica, CA – October 15, 2012 – With the launch of Call of Duty®: Black Ops II less than 40 days away, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), announced today that all of its Call of Duty® Elite service features for Call of Duty®: Black Ops II will be free when the blockbuster game hits worldwide on November 13. With Call of Duty Elite free for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, both new and veteran Call of Duty Elite members alike will be able to enjoy the full range of Call of Duty Elite’s robust service and features integrated into the highly-anticipated new game in development by award-winning studio Treyarch.

“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,” said Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg. “What we have realized 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 II.”

Supporting Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Activision will be selling four epic new Downloadable Content (DLC) Map Packs both á la carte and through the introduction of the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Season Pass. Coming to the Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network first, the four Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC Map Packs will deliver a variety of new Multiplayer and Zombies playable content and are expected to be available in 2013. The Season Pass will deliver all four Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC Map Packs at a discounted suggested retail price of 4000 Microsoft Points* ($49.99 on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360® (discount based on four DLC Map Packs at a suggested retail price of 1200 Microsoft Points ($15) each). Season Pass pre-orders are now available at select retail outlets, including GameStop. Season Pass and DLC Map Packs may not be available on all gaming platforms. Pricing and release dates may vary by platform. All Call of Duty Elite features and availability are subject to change. Further details regarding the 2013 calendar of Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC Map Packs will be made available at a later date.

Hirshberg continued, “For Call of Duty: Black Ops II, DLC Map Packs will be a separate offering from Call of Duty Elite. The Season Pass will be a great way to acquire all four Map Packs at a discount, but if our fans would rather take it one Map Pack at a time, then we’ll offer each pack á la carte for anyone who wants it. What we aren’t doing is requiring a paid membership to access the great player services for Call of Duty: Black Ops II and we’re thrilled to offer all of Elite’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II features to players for free.”

Today’s news of Call of Duty Elite’s free integration with Call of Duty: Black Ops II follows the recent reveal of several new multiplayer features that are in the works by Treyarch, including an all-new ‘Pick Ten Create-a-Class’ system, an added emphasis on eSports featuring CODcasting, and an all-new Score Streaks system. GameStop president Tony Bartel says, “Consumer anticipation for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is tremendous. We are seeing the highest pre-orders in history. With its current pace, this Call of Duty is on track to break records and is likely to be our biggest game launch of all time.”

As a free service for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the Call of Duty Elite platform will continue to evolve as the definitive Call of Duty headquarters, with the inclusion of new and enhanced features such as:
Player HQ – Track Call of Duty: Black Ops II performance with rich game statistics, including enhanced match information such as heat maps and recent match data; track challenges and extensively modify your classes like never before using Treyarch’s new Pick 10 Create-a-Class system.
Clan HQ – Join an existing clan or start your own, invite friends and then take part in Call of Duty: Black Ops II clan competitions with cool digital prizing.
Zombies Support – For the millions of Zombies fans out there, now you can track your Zombies personal statistics and compare it to other players’ around the world.
Call of Duty Elite TV – Launching with tablet support with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the new Call of Duty Elite TV will deliver a renewed community focus featuring developer tips and strategy programming, custom class overviews and more.
Social Sharing and Notifications – With Call of Duty Elite’s new notification system, you can stay updated with what is going on in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, as well as communicate directly with your clan.
