Activision's just announced in an email confirming its E3 line-up that the open beta for Call of Duty: Elite will begin on July 14.
The tester of the subscription service, announced last week by Activision, won't have the full list of features - they will go live at the launch of Modern Warfare 3 - but it will allow users to try out a taste "of the experience and allow the service to be tested by gamers."
Testing will be done via Black Ops' multiplayer.
Activision's also announced that since sign-ups started for the beta, over 1 million have registered.
"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," said Activision Publishing CEO, Eric Hirshberg.
"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."
As well as the Elite beta announcement, Activision also confirmed its E3 line-up, which you can find below. Not much of a shocker, mind.
- Modern Warfare 3
- Call of Duty Elite
- Prototype 2
