New MW3 Maps Hit PS3 on 2/28! – ELITE Only

cod-mw3-updates_2Finally we get a real release date for PS3 Players! The new MW3 Maps will hit the PS3 on 2/28. But you will still need to shell out the 50 bucks for an Elite Premium Member Account to get it.

I personally do not like the Exclusivity Contract with Xbox. It sucks we all have to wait just because of the console we play on. Anyways enough whining – read the post below for the good news.

Some even better news is his confirmation of the addition of Spec-Op maps which I had thought previously forgotten about! This bodes well for those of use who like Spec-Op missions more than the actually Multi Player experience. (Well, it’s a nice break for me anyways!)

Read all the info below (I’ve highlighted the tasty bits)

It’s going to be a long year – and that’s a good thing. While Modern Warfare 3 has occupied a lot of time in the drives of a lot of PS3 owners since its November release, there is more content to come over the next several months. And if you’re a premium member of Call of Duty Elite, you’re going to get your first two tastes of that content on February 28th.

While the content season will contain more than 20 items overall – some multiplayer maps, some game modes, and some Spec Ops missions – the first two pieces of content in the season are a Call of Duty player’s bread and butter: multiplayer maps.

MW3 DLC Map Piazza

The seaside village of Piazza is a perfect battleground for fans of close-quarters combat; the sharp corners, tight corridors, and stone staircases all offer compelling examples of why the word “paranoia” is the same in English and Italian.

New Map Liberation

Liberation offers more room to run, but it’s no less deadly. Enjoy the beautiful foliage, romantic footbridges, and brutal explosions as you attack the enemy centrally located park in Manhattan. Snipers will find their perches, but sneaky players will enjoy the underground passage and ample ambush cover options.

The first two maps will arrive for Call of Duty ELITE Premium members first on February 28th, with more content to come over the nine months that follow. If you’re an Elite premium member, you’ll get a message at the MW3 multiplayer menu as soon as the content is available to download; from there, just sel ect Store from the multiplayer menu and the downloads will be yours at no additional charge. It’s part of the whole Elite premium package. If you want in, the details are here.

It won’t be long now before we see each other in Italy and New York. Ciao, buddy.

      My guess is that the maps will be available on PSN at midnight… Pacific Standard Time since that is where Sony is based out of in the States. That is of course PSN doesn’t crash again ;-p

      But, I hope I’m proven wrong – can anyone confirm/deny this?

    will the maps appear as normal with other maps or it will be like MW2 where you selected the package?

      Took me a few minutes to figure this out – To play the new maps you will need to go the playlist and select the ELITE playlist! Sat there playing a few rounds going WTF – where are my new maps! Of course didn’t figure it out until it was time for me to go to sleep *derp*.
