Details on First Non-Elite Modern Warfare 3 DLC

Posted on February 29, 2012 AT 02:23pm

THE BUZZ: Activision and Infinity Ward have now revealed the first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 DLC content pack that will be available to all players of the game.

EGM’s TAKE: So, this DLC pack will be called “Content Collection #1″—and it will be the first DLC pack that will be available to non-Call of Duty Elite subscribers for the game. Content Collection #1 will include the previous two months of DLC released to those Elite subscribers, as well as the next content update.

That update will bring with it three new offerings: the multiplayer map Black Box, and two Special Ops missions: Black Ice and Negotiator. (Official descriptions listed below.)

Black Box, Black Ice, and Negotiator will be released for Xbox 360 Call of Duty Elite subscribers on March 13th (with PC and PS3 versions coming later). Content Collection #1 will then be available to all Modern Warfare 3 players on the Xbox 360 on March 20th (with, again, PC and PS3 version hitting at a later date).

Elite Drop 4: Black Box
Battle beside a downed Air Force One in “Black Box.” Multi-level homes overlook the neighboring streets, creating a deadly kill zone for players on the ground. With clear sight lines from house to house, however, snipers are far from safe, with counter-sniping an ever-present threat to their dominance. Those that prefer close-quarters combat can succeed in the tight confines of the crashed airplane or in hunting down enemies posted up within any of the surrounding homes.

Elite Drop 5: Black Ice
Shred ice from aboard your snowmobile as you infiltrate a diamond mine in the Special Ops mission, “Black Ice.” Melt more than snow when you plant high-grade explosives to shut the mine down forever. This marks the first time Special Ops has been made downloadable online in franchise history.

Elite Drop 6: Negotiator
Cash in all your karma as you head to India for high-stakes hostage extraction in “Negotiator,” an all-new Special Ops mission in which you’ll breach-and-clear rooms and navigate surface streets to secure the safety of your VIPs. This marks the first time Special Ops has been made downloadable online in franchise history.
