With the event of Call of Duty Elite Premium subscription the way downloadable content (DLC) is issued to the Call of Duty (COD) games has changed. Modern Warfare 3 (MW3) is the first of the Call of Duty games to allow the subcribers of the Elite Premium service to receive the content first (Elite Premium Xbox 360 users will receive it before other platforms). The first ‘Map Pack’ will be released on the 24th January and will include two new multiplayer maps: Liberation and Piazza. It’s unclear if other content will be released in this DLC release but it looks like it will just be these two maps.
This Map pack kicks-off a season of DLC, where Elite Premium members will get content to download, FREE every month for the next 9 months. The content for non-premium members will also be available at a later date but won’t be FREE, so will have to be paid for.
When can you buy Elite Premium?
