The biggest video game franchise in the world, Call of Duty was looking to expand itself to the web and mobile with the release of its supplemental service Call of Duty: Elite. They said that there would be a mobile side of the service that keeps track of your kills and overall stats in the game and it has finally hit the Android Market, but is not doing too well out of the gate. Screenshots of the application’s flaws can only describe what it needs to fix. (more…)
This past week there was a little shindig going down in Los Angeles. Call of Duty decided to throw a party for its fans and what a party it was – there were paintball battles, real life CoD maps laid out for people to see and somewhere in the vicinity of 2,000 Xboxs on hand. But one interesting piece that came from the event was that there would be an Android, and iOS, application coming out soon with the release of Modern Warfare 3.
Now, this isn’t going to be a game by any means. This will be an application that ties directly into CoD’s new stat-tracking and social networking experiment called Call of Duty: Elite. This application will definitely allow you to look at your loadouts in-game through your phone and let you make changes while you’re on the go. Those changes will be waiting for you when you get back to the game later on in the day. Cool, huh? Since I got to beta test CoD: Elite (my full story here) I can see that this application will most likely allow you to track your stats for bragging rights when you’re out with your buddies. If they decide to fully implement all that Elite offers it’ll even allow you to look up maps from the game which provide spawn points and other intel and will give you videos that you can watch that are made by CoD players and even some videos breaking down how to use certain guns. Unfortunately there hasn’t been a definite release date for this application yet, but look for it around the time MW:3 drops, November 8. (more…)
