Activision Announces the Beginning of the Call of Duty DLC “Season”

New content comes to Xbox 360 users first.

It’s already been proven that Activision's newest entry into the Call of Duty franchise does, in fact, print money, but the six million players who paid extra for “Elite” status have yet to see a return on their investment.

Well, the wait will soon be over, for Xbox 360 users anyway.

Activision emailed Elite’s Premium members to announce that what they are calling their DLC “Season” starts on January 24th, and it will come first to Xbox Live subscribers.  Available downloads should include new maps, missions, and "a variety of things that players have never seen before."  Those who paid the extra $50 for this status will be able to download this content for free, and will have access to it before those who declined to sign up, or those who purchased the game on PC, since Elite was not an option for them.  No official word was given as to the exact date of the PlayStation 3 and PC availability of this content.

Several other bonuses were also announced, such as the launch of Compete Channel events where players will have a shot at earning actual, physical prizes as early as next week, and the launch of the Call of Duty Elite mobile app, expected sometime next month.

EA....Call Of Duty..... what a total mess up on this article. Where is PixlBit's editors and proof readers to catch even the most obvious mistakes?!?!? As a former staff member I am disappointed.

Mistakes happen - our apologies. We're currently in a transitional phase and are putting people in new positions to handle both staff and viewership growth.

Thanks for pointing out the error, we'll be doing our best to make sure it doesn't happen again. Typically I'd be on news editing, but yesterday was my son's birthday, so I wasn't around to keep an eye on things. It's no excuse, but it's the best that can be said for now.
