If you happen to Call of Duty Elite account on the PlayStation 3, we finally have some good news for you. Activision has just announced a date for when the first DLC content drop will be available, offering the same two maps that launched for Xbox 360 Elite members last month.
For those of you that are not aware, the first two maps that are coming to the PS3 are the Liberation and Piazza maps. They are already available on the Xbox 360 but at least PS3 owners with an Elite account will now be able to experience the rarity of having new maps on PS3 before non-Xbox 360 Elite members.
The date that you need to mark down is Tuesday February 28, as that’s when they will be available to download from the PlayStation Store. That leaves 18 more content drops to land before the end of the year, but you have to feel for PC owners just a little bit. Activision has inexplicably left PC gamers out of the Elite party, so there’s no indication on when PC gamers will be able to enjoy the new content.
Then of course for non-Elite Modern Warfare 3 players, there’s no date for Liberation and Piazza regardless. We’re guessing Activision will make the content available for a fee sometime in March, but by that time Elite members on Xbox 360 may even have the second content drop already which is going to be a hard pill to swallow.
What are your thoughts on Activision’s DLC release strategy for Modern Warfare 3? Are you a fan of these smaller content drops, or did you prefer the old method of larger map packs? Don’t forget to check out a previous report, which hinted on the possibility of older maps featuring in the game at some point.
