Train2Game news: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to get 9 months of DLC

Train2Game student Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 players will see nine months of downloadable content for the hugely popular shooter.

The DLC will include new multiplayer maps, special ops missions and new game modes, and be available for Call of Duty Elite Premium members using Xbox LIVE before being released to those on other systems at a later date. Activision promise 20 ‘content drops’ for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 during the nine month period.

As previously reported by The Train2Game Blog, it’s possible that user-created multiplayer game modes could find their way into Modern Warfare 3, possibly via this newly announced plan for DLC.

“The mammoth launch of Modern Warfare 3 and the breakout success of Call of Duty Elite were just the beginning.  Call of Duty Elite provides an ‛always-on’ connection to our fanbase, and the MW3 Content Season is the ultimate way to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the Call of Duty community and provide tremendous value to Call of Duty Elite premium members,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing.

“With the Call of Duty®: MW3 Content Season for Call of Duty Elite we are delivering on our promise of more new content, more often, and with more variety than ever. With three studios collaborating on the first season, the breadth and depth of material on tap is truly extraordinary. It’s rare you can successfully execute both quantity and quality, but thanks to the expertise of our developers, the reach of Call of Duty Elite and the passion of our fans, we intend to deliver.
