(Newser) – The maker of the wildly popular Call of Duty video game plans to test just how dedicated its players are. In an industry first, Activision Blizzard will launch a monthly subscription fee this fall for gamers who want extra content that does not come with the $60 game, reports the Wall Street Journal. The "elite" option will be available with the Modern Warfare 3 version of the game. Details aren't fleshed out, but the fee is expected to be less than, say, a Netflix subscription of $7.99. The series has racked up $3 billion in sales over eight years. (Read more Activision Blizzard stories.)
