Call of Duty Elite Will be Free for Black Ops 2
Call of Duty Elite was introduced with the launch of Modern Warfare 3. The premium service for everything Call of Duty was Activision's experiment to extend the product outside the boundaries of the game while providing a premium service for fans of the series. It also provided regular content updates which were also sold as premium DLC to non-subscribers of the $60 service. For the most part, it seems Elite was successful, but perhaps it was a bit confusing and burdensome for the more casual player.
