First Modern Warfare 3 DLC screen shows new map Park

Activision social media manager addresses DLC release timing on different platforms

Infinity Ward community manager Robert Bowling has released a screenshot of one of the new multiplayer maps in Modern Warfare 3's first DLC pack, which is set to hit Xbox Live for Call of Duty Elite subscribers on January 24.


It's called Park, backing up a rumour from last month that the first DLC pack will include maps called Park, Concrete, Italy, Overwatch and... Morning Wood.

Yesterday, Bowling confirmed that Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software are all working on MW3 DLC, which he promised will be more varied than updates for previous series entries.

Following the announcement, Activision told us that news on DLC release dates for other platforms won't be revealed until next year.

Elaborating a little bit, Activision social media manager Dan Amrich wrote on his blog: "Other platforms and dates were not discussed, but remember that there's a double-whammy here: Due to a business arrangement from 2010, Xbox 360 gets DLC content ahead of other platforms, and Activision has promised Elite subscribers will get DLC content ahead of the general public.

"With that in mind, I see five audiences: Xbox 360 Elite, Xbox 360 general public, PS3 Elite, PS3 general public, and PC. I don't yet know in what order each of those audiences will be served. That could get confusing, but you know I'll do my best to make it as easy to figure out as possible."
