This is our first peek at the upcoming DLC map "Park."
Call of Duty Elite subscribers eagerly waiting for Modern Warfare 3 DLC finally learned when they’ll get their first content update. It’s coming January 24th on Xbox 360. It’s important to notice that they were specific about that date just being on Xbox Live. They’ve promised more details as we get into January but haven’t mentioned Playstation 3 or PC dates yet. With DLC for previous Call of Duty games, the content came to PS3 around a month after Xbox, then PC even later. If PS3 and PC Modern Warfare 3 players have to wait until February to finally get new stuff from their paid subscriptions, we’re probably going to see a lot of angry people.
So far, all we actually know is that the DLC will contain the map “Park,” pictured above. They’ve mentioned the DLC will feature multiplayer content, Spec Ops missions and more. While not confirmed, it’s pretty likely Park will function as a multiplayer map and co-op Spec Ops survival mode mission at the very least.
In addition to the new content, January will finally give us the Call of Duty Elite Android and iOS smartphone apps. These apps will let players check their game stats, maps and more on the go.
It’s unfortunate we’ve had to wait so long for more functionality from the paid Elite subscriptions but at least players will finally get the new features. We’ll learn more about what’s coming when Infinity Ward and Activision release details in January.
