Infinity Ward has revealed the first Modern Warfare 3 DLC will come on the 24th of January.
In an exclusive CoD ELITE Premium video (Yes, you couldn’t see it if you’re not on premium. The video was also uploaded to YouTube but…), Robert Bowling explained why the DLC won’t be like a “DLC”*.
The way we’re doing downloadable content this year is unlike we’ve never done before. Not only in how you can get it – in content drops or choose for the collection – but also the type of content you’re getting. 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.
That’s the great thing about having three developers that are contributing to the season of content. You have Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer and Raven all pitching in. The full season of content for Modern Warfare 3 kicks off for Elite subscribers on January 24 on Xbox Live.
Unfortunately, PS3 gamers (including myself) will have to wait a while after it releases on the 360. In regards to how long the wait will be, an Activision spokesman said,
Today we informed the Call of Duty Elite Premium community that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Elite Content Season will officially kick off on January 24 for Xbox users. We’ll have more details about the entire 2012 MW3 Content Season in early January, so stay tuned for updates.
There’s also another whammy for the players – CoD ELITE Premium subscribers get it first. Confused? Here, I’ll unconfuse you.
Who gets the DLCs first?
- CoD ELITE Premium Xbox 360
- CoD ELITE Premium PS3
- Non-ELITE Xbox 360
- Non-ELITE PS3
Robert Bowling tweeted a preview of one of the maps, Park.
The other three maps were leaked, and here are the photos.
It appears the names were correct.
*Yes, this is a reference to Apple’s 1984 ad.
Whoa! What a coincidence! The first DLC will release on the 24th of January – the exact same date the first Macintosh was released!
