By Gary Johnson - Dec 21, 2011

Since the gaming world was treated to the latest installment of the Call of Duty franchise, we have wondered when the first DLC packs would start hitting the various platforms the game is available on. Today we have some good news as the MW3 DLC release is to hit the Xbox 360 in January with Spec Ops and more.

An article over at is reporting that Infinity Ward has announced the first MW3 DLC will become available on January 24, 2012. The DLC will be available to those who are Call of Duty Elite members on Xbox Live first.

Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward’s creative strategist talked about the news via a Call of Duty Elite video. He revealed that Modern Warfare 3 DLC will be more varied than previous offerings, and also announced that Infinity Ward, Raven, and Sledgehammer are all working together on updates for the title.

He said that the way they are going to provide downloadable content this time will be “unlike we’ve ever done before”. This will translate into how gamers will get it and added “We’re doing more than just maps. We’re going to do Spec Ops missions and a variety of things that players have never seen before”.

Bowling said that having three developers working on the content was a great thing, and promises to provide gamers with something special. There has been mystery and rumors surrounding when gamers will get treated to DLC content for MW3, and now you know when it all kicks off. Currently there are no dates for other platforms to begin receiving the first DLC content from Infinity Ward.

Are you looking forward to the first batch of DLC content for MW3?

    What I don’t like about this is the DLC should be available to all Elite members at the same time! That’s what I thought I paid for!!!!
