Modern Warfare 3 Elite subscribers on the Xbox 360 will know that the first content drop maps in Liberation and Piazza are now available to download. However, we have some important information for you to note down regarding the rest of the content Elite owners will receive throughout the year.
As you know, Activision has already promised a total of 20 content drops, 2 of which we have now had so that leaves 18 new pieces of content that Elite owners can look forward to, or non Elite members if they are willing to pay for it at a later date.
Activision has now put a full schedule on the Call of Duty website, revealing that 10 more maps are on the way through the year, as well as two brand new game modes and some fresh spec ops missions. The list states that Elite subscribers on the Xbox 360 will get another map to play through next month, while March will bring one new map and two new spec ops missions.
April should be an exciting month for Modern Warfare 3 Elite players, as you’ll get another two maps as content drops, although obviously specific details on what these maps will be have not been revealed yet. It makes a change for Activision to outline DLC plans so early, so it at least gives Elite and non-Elite players an indication on what content will be included as part of the subscription, and when it will be coming.
You can check out the fancy DLC calendar for yourself on the Call of Duty website here. You’ll see that Liberation and Piazza are already available on the Xbox 360, while it also states that the maps are coming for PS3 and PC Elite members ‘soon’. It’s a good idea to bookmark this website so you can always check to see what is coming.
