COD: MW3 Article

 

MW3 E3 Video Exclusive

 

Infinity Ward say they're currently "having conversations" about adding dedicated server support and mod tools to the PC version of the game. That would be great, but it's hard to see how player-run maps and modded modes will fit with the social networking features of Call of Duty Elite.

Make it free!

In its enthusiasm to reveal Elite, Activision flubbed the announcement and left out key information. Gamers naturally assumed the worst. Their most frequent complaint about the service is that competitors such as Bungie and Electronic Arts (Nasdaq: ERTS ) offer the same features as Elite for free. A few people even mistakenly believed that Activision intended to charge for online multiplayer action. Grumbling gamers argue that they should not have to pay extra for these features.

 

As it turns out, Activision agrees. It released a FAQ about Elite shortly after gamers took to the Internet to vent their fury. Activision said that all of the features gamers enjoy for free now will remain free, and that most of the in-game statistics-tracking and social-networking features are also included in the free side of the service.

Call of Duty Elite beta logistics FAQ

 

Is the beta open to PC players?

That was the original plan, but the plan apparently changed at the last minute. While PC was an option during sign-ups, the FAQ now says, "Currently, we do not plan to launch a version of the beta for the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops." I know that's disappointing (I'm bummed, I think my PC stats might be higher than the others, actually) but I suppose it's better than biting off more than you can chew for the beta.

Will PC players be part of the beta?

Currently, we do not plan to launch a version of the beta for the PC version of Call of Duty: Black Ops.

@fourzerotwo #MW3 will it have dedicated server support? And why is it taking so long for such a simple answer.

 

@Quercuas For PC, yes. For console, we are not sure yet. We will announce everything #MW3 at the CODxp event in september.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 did not have dedicated servers on PC, which caused some controversy a couple years ago. Generally, dedicated servers provide a smoother online experience and allow more players to join a match. Today at Gamescom Activision confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will have dedicated servers for the PC version. This is part of an effort to show PC gamers that Activision is serious about the platform.
