Call of Duty Elite Friday Night Fights starts this week

Army vs Navy showdown kicks things off.

Call of Duty Elite's Friday Night Fights series kicks off this week, Activision has announced.

The first episode of the weekly show, which is produced by Ridley and Tony Scott's RSA production company, pits teams from the US Army against teams from the US Navy.

It goes out at 8.00pm UK time to all Elite premium members and will then be available for replay via streaming.

"From the beginning, our goal with Call of Duty Elite has been to bring the Call of Duty community together in new ways," commented Activision exec Eric Hirshberg.

"Fans of Call of Duty spend as much time playing the game, as sports fans spend following their favorite teams - if not more. So we figured, if sports fans get all kinds of shows outside of the games to feed their passion, why not do the same thing for Call of Duty fans?

"When you're working with the likes of executive producers Ridley Scott and Tony Scott, the production values don't get any higher. And the Call of Duty community deserves nothing less.

"We want to give people new ways to connect with the game they love. That's what Call of Duty Elite is about, and Friday Night Fights is just the beginning."

Call of Duty Elite has suffered from some widely-documented teething troubles since launch earlier this month. The full service is expected to be up and running no later than 1st December.
