Modern Warfare® 3 Content Season for Call of Duty® Elite

Mar. 15, 2012

The biggest Call of Duty title in history just got bigger! Complete with four maps and two Special Ops Missions, the MW3 Collection 1 content pack arrives March 20 for ALL Xbox 360 users.
Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LIaVtZetOa4


Feb. 02, 2012

PlayStation 3 owners with a Call of Duty Elite subscription have something to look forward to February 28. While 360 owning-Elite members have been enjoying the new content since January 24, the two new maps, Liberation and Piazza, will finally be hitting the PS3 at the end of the month.

Liberation is an open terrain map taking place in a militarized Central Park. Trigger happy gunmen can hop on mounted turrets to mow down soldiers attempting to cross the ruined NYC scenery. The Piazza map, set in an Italian seaside village, offers more close-quarters surprises. Watch out for labyrinthine paths, blind turns, and claustrophobic firefights.

Jan. 10, 2012

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Modern Warfare® 3 blazes into 2012 with the debut of all-new multiplayer maps Liberation and Piazza, the front line of the Modern Warfare® 3 Content Season for Call of Duty® Elite, nine consecutive months of epic downloadable content that commences January 24th for Xbox Live users. Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc.'s (Nasdaq: ATVI), revealed today that the content will be available first for Call of Duty® Elite's premium members on Xbox LIVE, followed by additional platforms at a later time. From January through September, Call of Duty Elite premium members on Xbox LIVE will receive regular updates of all new content totaling at least 20 content drops.

The Modern Warfare 3 Content Season for Call of Duty Elite will include a broader variety than ever, with brand new multiplayer maps, Special Ops Missions, new game modes and more. While Call of Duty Elite premium subscribers get the new content first, as promised, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 fans who want to buy the content a la carte as they have in the past, will be able to purchase the content via Modern Warfare 3 Content Collections.

"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."

All content drops for Call of Duty Elite premium members will occur once a month, starting in January for Xbox Live users and will continue through the year, ending in September. During the first three months of 2012, Activision will release five different content drops on three occasions in January, February and March, first on Xbox Live, followed by additional platforms at a later time.

The first two Content Drops will be multiplayer maps—also playable in Modern Warfare 3 Survival Mode—that throw combatants into a war-torn Central Park and an Italian seaside village. Liberation is a vast, militarized landscape, ripe for long-range sniper and LMG fire, with mounted turrets on either end that lend power to anyone brave enough to expose themselves in exchange for deadly firepower. Piazza is the idyllic Italian getaway that is anything but, where tight corners and branching pathways pose great risk at every turn. Close-range combat dominates in Piazza, where attacks from behind, above and below are an ever-constant threat.

The third Content Drop will be available for download in mid-February and two additional Content Drops will go live in March, as premium Call of Duty Elite members will receive new content once a month through September. Also in March, the first Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection will be available for purchase by the entire Call of Duty: MW3 player community on Xbox Live.

To celebrate the launch of each new content drop, Call of Duty Elite will run specialized events for real-world prizes throughout the nine-month Season. Additional details about the Modern Warfare 3 Content Season for Call of Duty Elite and Collection series will be announced throughout the year.

The Modern Warfare 3 Content Season is co-developed by Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software.

This was discussed in the hype thread, but it's confirmed now. 402 just confirmed on Twitter that if you have Prestige tokens earned from Prestiging in previous games (CoD4, WaW, MW2, BO), you can redeem those tokens before you ever play one game in MW3.

that's what I did but changed it due to some images don't work well as transparent and me being lazy to do something about it. :)

I'll re-upload all of this now. Takes about 10-15mins.

Should probably be noted somewhere in OP that the game has 16 maps on disk, the most out of any shooter this year if I'm not mistaken.

Just Assassin. Blind Eye counters offensive air support such as helicopters (edit) and sentries.
