It is catch up time once again for Modern Warfare 3 owners on PS3 now, as Activision has confirmed that another two maps will be available for premium members this week, one month after releasing on Xbox 360.
Sanctuary and Foundation have been available on the Xbox 360 since April, but PS3 owners with a premium Call of Duty Elite subscription will be pleased to hear that you’ll finally be able to get your taste of the new maps on Thursday May 10.
June is set to be an even better month for PS3 owners, as four new maps are set to become available essentially coming in the form of a traditional map pack that used to be the norm with Modern Warfare 2. That also means that these maps will be available this month on Xbox 360.
Activision hasn’t given any details out on the new four maps, but we’re guessing that it won’t be long until we see another gameplay video from Rob Riggle demoing the new action with another humorous clip. If you need a reminder of what is in store for the rest of the year, you can head to the Elite Content Calendar here to refresh your memory – you can switch between Xbox 360 and PS3 using the tab at the top.
On a side note, it will be interesting to see how the DLC schedule will operate for Black Ops 2 once it releases in November. Will your Elite subscription carry over to free Black Ops 2 maps as well, or will Activision adopt a different strategy for Treyarch’s game? You would like to think that $50 a year will get you some free Black Ops 2 goodies as well – let’s wait and see.
For those that are Elite members on PS3, look out for the two new maps on the PlayStation Store tomorrow. Let us know your thoughts on Call of Elite – will you be renewing your subscription for Black Ops 2 DLC?
