Modern Warfare 3 DLC schedule revealed: 12 maps, 6 missions, 2 game modes
Activision has outlined its (DLC) content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 during 2012.
There are 20 pieces of DLC in total, and will be made available to Elite Premium subscribers who have paid for Call of Duty Elite in the ‘content season’.
The DLC is key to Activision to charge a monthly fee for its new Call of Duty Elite service. Premium members who pay $4.99 a month can get the “content drops” for free. Getting players playing year-round, rather than just buying a different game once a year. This is one of the reasons which led to Activision creating the MW3 DLC Map packs.
Liberation and Piazza maps, released on Xbox 360, will be accompanied by ten further multiplayer maps added to the game during the year. Activision has also revealed that there will be two new game modes appearing, one in June and one in August, along with six new Special Ops missions.
This is the DLC calendar for 2012, at least for Xbox 360 Elite subscribers, is as follows:
- January: Two new maps (Liberation and Piazza)
- February: New map
- March: New map, two new Spec Ops missions
- April: Two new maps
- May: New map, new Spec Ops mission
- June: New map, new Spec Ops mission, new game mode
