Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, better known as MW3 to some, lurks around the corner for gamers, mere hours away from launch. In preparation for Activision’s newest addition to the series, Call of Duty Elite is now available on the Xbox Live Marketplace. With a multitude of bonuses such as heat maps, stat tracking, and weapon information, not to mention two hours of double XP for anyone who registers, it’s every hardcore and even casual Call of Duty fan’s dream.

Although the service is free for anybody to use, players also have the option to upgrade their subscription to a Premium service, which offers access to all upcoming downloadable content for Modern Warfare 3, amongst other perks. It costs $49.99 USD per year, or £30 GBP. Free and Premium versions of CoD Elite are now available from the Xbox Live Marketplace, and if you are a Call of Duty fan it is an absolute recommendation that you get it, and get in gear for one of the biggest first-person shooter launches of the year.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and PC, from tomorrow. You can read more about the game here.
