US Army vs. US Navy Via Modern Warfare 3


Are you one of those million plus Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 players who purchased Elite?  If so, you have bought yourself a front row ticket to watch the premier of Call of Duty Elite’s Friday Night Fights.  This event is exclusive to the paid version of Elite.  The purpose of Elite has to bring the Call of Duty community closer in new ways – this is one of them.

This debut Friday Night Fights will involve perhaps the most appropriate two teams to playing each other.  The event will have the U.S. Army vs. the U.S. Navy playing each other in multiplayer MW3.  That’s right, two of America’s military forces simulating war though a video game.  This event will occur on Friday November the 25th at noon PST – perfect for the holiday weekend. 

Eric Hirshberg, CEO - Activision Publishing, said, "From the beginning, our goal with Call of Duty ELITE has been to bring the Call of Duty community together in new ways. Fans of Call of Duty spend as much time playing the game, as sports fans spend following their favorite teams—if not more. So we figured, if sports fans get all kinds of shows outside of the games to feed their passion, why not do the same thing for Call of Duty fans.  When you're working with the likes of executive producers Ridley Scott and Tony Scott, the production values don't get any higher. And the Call of Duty community deserves nothing less. We want to give people new ways to connect with the game they love. That's what Call of Duty ELITE is about, and Friday Night Fights is just the beginning."

This is a pretty interesting feature of Elite.  What is more modern about warfare than modern warfare?  Watching the USA’s armed forces battle each other is a simulation of real war is a fascinating concept.  While it doesn’t prove anything, it’s just a fun idea. So remember, Elite, Friday, November 25th, noon PST.
