Modern Warfare 3 to receive new DLC for nine months

Activision has announced that the smash hit Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be receiving more downloadable content than any previous title.

An ambitious new DLC schedule has been revealed that will see Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC owners receiving new updates for Modern Warfare 3 for nine straight months, starting on January 24th 2012 for Xbox Live users.

The first new content to be released will be a pair of all-new multiplayer maps: the Central Park-set Liberation and the Italian seaside village of Piazza.

They will kick off a programme of at least 20 "content drops", including new maps, modes and missions, which will be available first on Xbox 360 and can be downloaded early by Call of Duty Elite subscribers.

Eric Hirshberg of Activision said: "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."

It suggests that gamers will continue to have plenty of reason to return to Modern Warfare 3, the top-selling title of 2011 in the UK.
