MW3 DLC Releases are Confusing, Get Help With This Timeline
Still confused as to when the hell you get the MW3 DLC? We can’t blame you if trying to figure it out gives you a headache. XBL Elite subscribers, PSN Elite subscribers, XBL non-Elite subscribers, and PSN/PC non-Elite subscribers all have different release dates for different bundles of DLC. I know you’re all just ready to yell “SOMEONE JUST TELL ME WHEN I CAN PLAY THE NEW MAPS”.
We’re here for you. The handy little timeline above should help to explain it. Basically it breaks down like this.
January 24th: XBL Elite subscribers get Piazza and Liberation
Soon after Jan 24th: PSN Elite subscribers get Piazza and Liberation
February: XBL Elite subscribers get more DLC
March: XBL Elite subscribers get even more DLC
Later in March: XBL non-Elite subscribers get the option to purchase all the DLC released so far as a bundle.
April: PSN/PC non-Elite subscribers get the option to purchase all the DLC released so far as a bundle.
It’s worth noting that PSN Elite subscribers still get access to the first two maps before non-elite subscribing XBL members in spite of Microsoft’s agreement to get the content on XBL first. It just means they’ll have to wait a few days after XBL Elite subs get it.
The only thing we’re still looking for details on is when the PSN Elite subscribers get the 2nd and 3rd rounds of DLC that XBL Elite subs get in February in March. Our guess is just a few days after just like we’ll see with the Piazza and Liberation maps coming to PSN Elite members a few days after January 24th.
