Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3‘s launch went off without a hitch across all platforms, but Activision’s new service, Call of Duty Elite, wasn’t so lucky.
Activision’s servers weren’t able to handle the absolutely massive amount of players testing out the service at once, resulting in the service being completely inaccessible to players ever since its launch earlier this week.
In an attempt to make good on the situation, Activision will be offering a thirty day extension for all Call of Duty Elite premium members. If you purchased (or received) a one-year membership, your subscription will now expire in thirteen months rather than twelve.
“And for our premium members who are Founders, know that granting your status and delivering your in-game benefits in MW3 is a priority,” Activision said in a statement. “Also, to ensure that every premium member receives their full money’s worth, we are immediately and automatically extending your membership to Call of Duty Elite by 30 days at no additional cost.”
If you didn’t take the plunge and become a Premium member, Activision is extending the same offer to you as well, provided you purchase a subscription within the month. If you do so, you’ll also be able to get yourself “Founder” status, which has been extended for thirty days in light of the complications.
“If you’re still considering becoming a premium member, we’re going to extend Founder eligibility until the end of the month,” the statement continues, “and you will also receive the additional 30 days of access.”
