The Call of Duty Elite Beta, utilising Call of Duty: Black Ops, is now available on PlayStation 3, Activision has announced.

Beta access will start to be activated in stages, with limited invitations rolling out now. The beta will test features and functionality, including stat tracking, the use of custom player groups, competitive events and video sharing.

A major upgrade of additional features will come to Call of Duty Elite at its official launch on November 8 with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Premium members of Call of Duty Elite will also receive all downloadable content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. All of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 DLC, 20 pieces of new in-game content, will be available monthly during the 9-month DLC season. DLC will still be available to purchase separately.
