MW3 - First Map Pack DLC details

On the 24th of January, 2012, the first piece of DLC for Modern Warfare 3 will be released. At first, it will only be available to XBox Live Call of Duty Elite subscribers (those who paid for the Call of Duty Elite subscription - i.e. premium members). Call of Duty map packs are always released on the XBox 360 before other platforms such as the PS3 and PC because Microsoft and Activision have an ongoing-deal.

The DLC will contain:

  • New multiplayer maps.
  • New multiplater game modes (this is something new that we haven't seen in previous Call of Duty DLC).
  • New Spec Op missions.

According to Robert Bowling at Infinity Ward, the team are looking to deliver more value with their DLCs by adding new multiplayer game modes and Spec Op missions, instead of just the regular addition of new maps.

Below is a screenshot of one of the new multiplayer maps that will feature in the new MW3 DLC. The map below has been simply referred to as "Park".


In case you didn't know, "Park" was included as the name of a new map in a supposed leak of the new DLC. Other map names included in that leak were Cement, Italy, Morningwood and Overwatch. Overwatch was the name of a Spec Ops mission in Modern Warfare 2.

I don't know about you, but I personally want to see Terminal be included in some MW3 DLC!
