First Modern Warfare 3 DLC Dated For Xbox Live

Posted on December 21, 2011 AT 06:02am

THE BUZZ: Infinity Ward has revealed that the first DLC for Modern Warfare 3 will be hitting Xbox Live early next year.

The DLC will be available to Call of Duty Elite subscribers on Xbox Live first, on January 24 2012. According to Robert Bowling, Creative Strategist at Infinity Ward, the downloadable content will be more varied compared to previous Call of Duty games:

“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,” he said. ”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.”

EGM’s TAKE: At least the team is offering something different this time, instead of just map packs all year. They might even introduce new game modes and variations.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
