Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer mode got two new maps at the end of last month, Liberation and Piazza, but only for those who are Call of Duty Elite subscribers. PlayStation 3 owners had to wait because of that whole "first on Xbox" thing with Duty's DLC, and now a press release reveals an official launch date for the premium content on Sony's console: February 28.
Liberation is set in a war-torn version of New York City's Central Park and Piazza is set in the tight stairwells and walkways of a sunny Italian villa. Xbox 360 users will be getting another content drop in February and then two more in March; PS3 users can presumably work with the same calendar, only with everything happening a month later.
I've gotta admit, this whole delayed release thing for subscription-based premium content is pretty strange. I personally tend to do my multiplayer gaming on my 360, but it seems silly that PS3 players have to wait an extra month to access content that they've already paid extra for. This is Activision's first crack at a subscription DLC model for Call of Duty; hopefully, somebody realizes that timed exclusivity really only makes sense with a la carte DLC by the time the next game rolls around.
