Call of Duty Content Collection #1 Hits XBL Today

Call-of-Duty-Content-Collection-#1-Hits-XBL-TodayThe first 6 pieces of DLC for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are now available for all Xbox 360 players, the content had before been exclusive to premium members of Call of Duty Elite.

The first content collection contains four new multiplayer maps, and for the first time in Call of Duty history, 2 new Spec Ops missions:

Black Ice (Spec Ops): Players will use snowmobiles to enter a frozen diamond mine, where they will take out the facility for good.

Negotiator (Spec Ops): India is the backdrop for a hostage extraction, players must negotiate a maze of surface streets to ensure the safety of rescued civilians.

Liberation: Set in NYC’s Central Park, this sprawling map is perfect for long-range sniper and LMG kills.

Piazza: An idyllic seaside village, where blind corners and a complex warren of branching pathways pose danger at every turn.

Overwatch: A compact, sky-high battle arena set in a construction site atop a NYC office tower.

Black Box: Overlooking the downed Air Force One, players will need all their skill to stay alive in this war zone.

Call of Duty’s DLC has become a little confusing since the introduction of Elite. Their partnership with Microsoft that sees all DLC come first to Xbox LIVE has meant PS3 Elite members having to wait for content, despite paying the same amount as their Xbox counterparts. With the exclusivity deal set to run out at the end of 2012, here’s hoping that DLC for future Call of Duty games will be released at the same time across all platforms.

Call of Duty Content Collection #1 is available to download right now on the Xbox LIVE marketplace for 1200msp.
