ELITE Android App Only a Port of the iPhone App

The Call of Duty ELITE app for Android has just released today and get this – it’s just a port of the iPhone app.

It has the back button which is clearly unnecessary since Android phones have a hardware back button. Fail.

And according to a user, it doesn’t even have the Connect section!

Search User is there, its the only thing you can search for… click the search button in the upper right corner, type a name. What it doesn’t do is find names that are close to a name you searched for, it needs the exact user name.

So because of that, the Android app only receives a 3-star rating.

MW3 Content Season Kicking Off With 2 Brand New Maps

Robert Bowling announced MW3’s “Content Season,” starting January 24th with 2 brand new maps. So let’s jump right in.

Liberation (formerly Park) takes place no where else in Manhattan, but Central Park. “There’s a lot of sniper sightlines, and you need to be cautious when you’re crossing. Don’t run and gun, a little bit more methodical, and that’s how you’re going to survive that round.”

Piazza (formerly Italy / Coast) has you on an Italian coast-side village. “Piazza is a different type of map altogether. It’s a very vertical chaotic route map. It’s primarily geared up towards the guys who like the really close-up run and gun. You gotta be fast.”

Relase Date
The first two maps will come on the 24th of January for ELITE (Premium) Xbox 360 subscribers. There is no word for premium PS3 gamers though.

For the majority of us who don’t have ELITE, you are able to purchase all of the maps as a map pack in March.

Not Just Maps
Infinity Ward has also confirmed that DLC Weapons and Campaign Missions are “on the table”.

Here are all the images from the upcoming DLC.

Activision Press Release

ELITE iPhone App Rolling Out, Android App Coming Next Week

And finally, after nearly 2 and a half months, we have the ELITE mobile apps coming.

It will release once your time zone hits January 10th, Tuesday. Time zones. So confusing.

Woohoo! But for Android users, you’ll have to wait until next week to download. 

The native iPad app will come later this year (no release date) and Beachhead is still thinking whether or not to develop a Windows Phone 7 app. Now that depends on users asking for it! So tweet to them if you want a WP7 app.

More Info on ELITE Mobile Apps

The Beachhead Studios team was kind enough to shed some light on the questions we’ve been asking since November 8th.

1 Can we get some screenshots and maybe a video of how the app works/looks?

Soon. This will come from our PR guys first, and will be coming soon. If you search the web you will see some older screenshots. It’s changed a bit since then.

2 Can Premium Members watch ELITE TV on the apps?

That is a future goal (also for the Console App) but it is not in the cards yet.

3 What app will be released first? (iOS or Android)

I need to confirm this, but we are going for near-simultaneous release.

4 What is the status of the Android app?

(No answer)

5 What is the latest news on the iOS App?

Both are in the final stages of “load testing” where we simulate the traffic from the app as if thousands of users were using it simultaneously to help ensure that the app works on day 1. We are being very meticulous about this testing because we need to avoid the instability that you guys suffered under in November and early December.

Once this testing is complete, we will give the app the green light and it will be ready for release.
