Call of Duty: Elite, which will form part of Activision's E3 line-up this year, will receive a invite-only public beta beginning July 14.
The social network service will be tested on out Black Ops, with the intention of rolling it out properly come the launch of Modern Warfare 3 on November 8th.
Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing, said, "We are putting more focus, creativity and investment into every game we make than ever before. By developing deep, connected and engaging experiences we are staying ahead of the innovation curve and offering players unique entertainment experiences. We are particularly excited about our new service Call of Duty Elite, which we believe will reset the bar for multiplayer and create a connected entertainment community around Call of Duty like nothing else in the industry. Many of the service's key features are free to players of all supported Call of Duty titles, which will elevate fans' multiplayer experience beyond anything currently available in the market."
