So after hearing about the price, $100, I was wondering..after the Elite subscription is over do you keep the DLC or have to buy it again?

any info is much appreciated

I was thinking this as well. What if we buy the Elite, but the map packs dont come out THIS year but the following year. Does that mean we have to buy elite AGAIN just to get the map packs? They promised you get the maps with elite but what im trying to say is what if your subscription runs out before certain maps are released.

My first thought when I seen they included a years sub with the Hardened edition was that they'd release the first map pack a year and one day after the game ships. :/ But yeah, I would assume if you get a map pack for free while subscribed to elite, you would keep that map pack if your sub runs out.

It's Activision though so who knows.

A new Cod will be out by next year. Most of the DLC will be released this year.

I imagine you can keep them...you just lose access to Elite stats and receiving future DLC for free.

Its been confirmed that they aren't pulling a Playstation+ on us so yeah, you'll get to keep the DLC after your subscription runs out.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what makes the Hardened Edition worth it. Save up kids, it's going to be a wild ride.

also, when you download a certain DLC it will be in your download history,
which makes it impossible to buy a second time on your account?
and you'll be able to download it when you're on a different Xbox

They have already announced that they will b doing monthly DLC. Whether that is true or not remains to be seen but they are planning on it.Whether it's map packs or spec ops mission or whatever. Elite will pay for itself very quickly. Any dlc u download will b yours. Just because ur elite subscription runs doesnt mean u cant play it anymore.

Your downloading from MS, it would b absurd to think otherwise. They would have to upload 2 different versions of the Download 1. For elite users so that it expired w ur membership and 1. For not elite users.

I'm gonna get the hardened edition it's my first 1 i've ever got of a game and i really think getting the hardened edition saves you in the long run as you have to go out and keep getting microsoft points for the game and get elite. Which will probably cost about 20, 30 quid for the map packs but call of duty elite will cost round about 20quid but you will get the map packs with the premium verson of elite anyway i'm getting mine from gamestation as they have an offer of 80 but you get an exclusive off at game and gamestation so thats why i'm getting it there sorry for blabbering on. :)

I already paid for a 60$ year subscription for elite so i better get to keep it

P.S if you pre order a subscription, on your gamertag will say something like "Elite founder" just like the way people have "Kinect luanch team" you know

dlc releasing next year obvs means before the next COD im thinking i might go for the hardened edition just for the free map packs

wont use elite, but its like your paying for the map packs before they come out
suppose it saves time really.
