Call of Duty Elite beta will be shut down tonight at 8pm by Activision. It has been confirmed that the Connect, Compete and Improve sections will remain closed, however access to Career page will soon open to all.
The publisher also confirmed that beta activity carries over when Elite launches on 8th November alongside shooter Modern Warfare 3.
Activision said, "Beachhead Studio would like to thank everyone for their feedback and participation in the beta, as it's helping to make Call of Duty Elite an even better service,"
Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has revealed that Activision's COD: Elite will help in their efforts to remove hackers and cheaters from games online portion.
In a recent interview to Gamespy, Robert said, "There’s been a lot of work put into it. I can’t go into specifics. On a general high level area there’s so much more stuff that we’ve locked down and made less accessible than we had before. A lot of stuff that we stripped out, a lot more challenge response things that we’re doing… It’s about verifying what the code is supposed to be and what the code actually is on the client side, and making sure that those are aligned. It’s also about our ability to take action when stuff is wrong so we’ve done a lot of work in our ability to update the game more quickly and efficiently than we have before."
He further continues, "A lot of that stuff can be done through Elite that we can review,” Bowling added. “Then we have tools to report player stuff in game that players can use, and we’ll have entire teams monitoring and taking actions on those. That’s new for us. A lot of that stuff, the monitoring stuff, a lot of that was introduced in Black Ops but with Elite that is launching with Modern Warfare 3, we’re taking that in an all new area, having full teams dedicated solely to that."
Cheaters and hackers has been a huge problem for many of us. This issue is so irritating and frustrating that many players discontinues playing game online. I just hope that this will allow MW3 to have a very smooth online experience.
