They have never released DLC for a game after the 1 year time period.
One should have elite membership for a year any ways cause they will most likely continue it to the next edition. It would be a waste of testing/development funds otherwise. Plus you get all the DLC any ways
they announced that there would be a total of 20 pieces of DLC released monthly over a 9 month period. I look at the elite subscription as saving $10 from buying seperately, plus getting the extra stuff that goes along with the hardened edition for free. Before the announcement (early July) they said the elite subscription service would be impossible to turn down by the hardcore COD fans and I scoffed. Turns out they were right.
Elite users will receive a new map via DLC every month - whereas the typical non premium elite user will experience what has always been the case - a 4 map pack DLC every quarter (or 4 months). So elite users are getting the typical DLC "early" spread out over the period that would normally be between DLC packs.
N. Lorenson, I'm with you on this one. I don't mind forking out the money to buy the harden edition with elite but they better not keep my DLC after my Elite Expires. Did you ever find out if this is going to happen??
Why do you waste time trolling on these boards? Maybe people wanted to discuss and share opinions, not just get a list of faqs. Why the rage? Does this discussion infringe on your rights to the pursuit of happiness?
Does anyone know if the elite service is going to be U.S. only or if they are going to have specific regional codes for the service. Because with me being stationed in Japan i have been screwed out of all of last years dlc because i was locked out from buying them on the marketplace. I dont want to invest 50 dollars in something that i cant even use if i buy this.
