Call of Duty Elite adds monthly fee

But, you won't pay to play online.

Activision has ended months of speculation and announced a subscription service for the biggest game series in the world: Call of Duty.

Call of Duty Elite, according to a report on the Wall Street Journal, launches this November with Modern Warfare 3.

Parts of Elite are free and parts are not. Free is a Facebook style system that helps players meet.

Elite gives players Bungie.net style tools that allow them to analyse their in-game performance. It also provides extra content, including downloadable map packs.

The monthly subscription fee is yet to be determined.

Activision was at pains to stress that Elite does not force players to pay to play online.

The general embargo for Call of Duty Elite lifts later today. Eurogamer will have much more information soon.

Extended Call of Duty video details all Elite's features.
