The first of four DLC collections from Infinity Ward for Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is set to release on March 20, 2012 for Xbox 360 owners. As with the prior multiplayer map DLC, Call Of Duty Elite members will be able to download this content for free and before everyone else on March 13, 2012. Along with new maps, this new DLC pack will have a couple new Spec Ops missions, which mark a first for the series.
Activision Publishing, Inc. revealed today that the Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 Content Collection #1 will release on Xbox LIVE on March 20, the first of four Content Collections available for purchase to all Call of Duty®: MW3 gamers. MW3 Collection #1 includes an unprecedented breadth and variety of content for Call of Duty® downloadable release – four brand new multiplayer maps Liberation, Piazza, Overwatch and Black Box along with new Special Ops Missions Black Ice and Negotiator, marking the first time Special Ops has been made downloadable online in franchise history.
Additionally for Call of Duty Elite Premium Members on Xbox LIVE, Call of Duty Elite Content Drops 4-6, featuring Black Box, Negotiator and Black Ice, will be available for download on March 13. Elite Content Drops 4-6 and MW3 Collection #1 will be made available on other platforms at a later date.
Modern Warfare 3 continues to be my main choice for competitive multiplayer shooting gameplay and this pack looks to only better solidify its already substantial hold on me. With each new release, I’m second guessing my choices not to purchase the Call Of Duty Elite subscription, thankfully it’s not too late to drop the cash for the subscription. Keep checking back with Call Of Duty’s DLC Calendar for an updated release schedule.
