Call of Duty Elite premium subscribers have been enjoying new content releases on a monthly basis since January, but next month sees Activision kicking off the other phase of the game's DLC cycle. A press release confirms that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection #1 will come to Xbox Live on March 20, offering four multiplayer maps and two new Spec Ops missions. Releases on other platforms will follow "at a later date."
Joining the previously released maps Liberation, Piazza and Overwatch is newcomer Black Box, in which players "battle beside a downed Air Force One amidst multi-level homes overlooking the luxurious Southern California neighborhood." The Spec Ops mission Black Ice involves a snowmobile, a diamond mine and high-grade explosives. Negotiator, the other Spec Ops mission, sends players to India for a hostage extraction.
There's no price revealed for MW3 Collection #1, though if the release is anything like previous Call of Duty DLC releases, you can expect it to fall at 1200 MS Points. Elite's premium subscribers will get to download Black Box, Black Ice and Negatiotor a week early, as part of the service's monthly content drops, on March 13.
You can keep up with the release schedule for the Call of Duty content season at the game's official website.
