The first piece of downloadable content for Modern Warfare 3 finally has a date...
The game has been out for a month and a half and as expected the attention has started to focus on what will be offered post-release as DLC (downloadable content).
First of all, let's recap what we know so far about Modern Warfare 3's downloadable content. There will be 20 lots which will dispatch monthly during a 9-month period. Premium members of Call of Duty Elite will get DLC earlier than everyone else and they will still be released first on Xbox 360 before Playstation 3 and PC users get their hands on them. New maps will be playable in both Multiplayer and Spec Ops Survival, and maps won't be the only offerings. If you're a Call of Duty Elite Premium member then not only will you be the first to try the DLC out, but you'll receive it automatically and for free.
Today some new details have arrived, included a release date for the first DLC. In an interview on Call of Duty Elite TV's Roll Call show, host Jay Frechette visited Infinity Ward for a sneak peek at the upcoming DLC and grabbed an exclusive interview with creative strategist Robert 'fourzerotwo' Bowling.
In the interview Bowling announced that the first DLC will be released on Tuesday, 24th January 2012 for Xbox 360 Call of Duty Elite Premium members. What will be included isn't yet known, but he did say that for the whole DLC cycle they are doing things they've "never done before" instead of just maps, before using Spec Ops missions as an example. Bowling highlighted the three teams of Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software working together as proof of allowing them to do new ways of how the DLC drops or the content that is included.
Sinceramente el rollo que se gastan con sacar las cosas 1º para 360 no me gusta nada.
Todavía no se saben precios, pero no creo que con 20 DLCs de camino se suban mucho a la parra y si lo hacen será para potenciar las suscripciones a elite.
