Content:Collection 4: Final Assault Price: 1200 Microsoft Points Availability:Check availability in your Xbox LIVE region Dash Text: Saluting Modern Warfare® 3’s Season of Content, the fourth and final DLC collection deploys with five all-new Multiplayer Maps. Surrounded by mountains, “Gulch” sends combatants into a forgotten mining town with only mine shafts and equipment sheds for cover. The Jersey coast awaits in “Boardwalk,” where fun in the sun means facing enemies on the beach. Players must earn their sea legs on “Off shore” and “Decommission,” where deadly oceanic oilrigs and a maze of rotting ocean liners provide the perfect setting for shoreline-based combat. Rounding out the collection is a trip to New Orleans’ war-torn French Quarter, where “Parish” pits players against one another amidst the city’s rubble.

Content:Collection 3: Chaos Pack Price: 1200 Microsoft Points Availability:Check availability in your Xbox LIVE region Dash Text: With its third DLC Collection, Modern Warfare® 3 drops a combat-heavy care package of Special Ops Chaos mode, 4 new Special Ops missions, and 3 FACE OFF maps for the ultimate trifecta in solo and co-op gameplay. High-altitude Special Ops challenges put tactical skills to the test, with players navigating armed drones above a Russian destroyer and evading RPGs from the roof of a helicopter-swarmed hotel. Upping the ante further, FACE OFF firefights pit players head-to-head on a six-lane stretch of desert highway, at an abandoned crossroads near a New York overpass, and near the path of a violent tornado. A whole new way to play Call of Duty®, Special Ops Chaos mode delivers the ultimate in arcade mayhem. Experience truly heart-pounding and adrenaline-fueled action while competing for high scores in Resistance, Village, Underground and Dome. Chain kills together against a never-ending onslaught of enemies to increase your combo multiplier and earn performance enhancing perks. Choose your route through each map to optimize weapon pickups, attack, and escape options. Play solo, split screen or online with a friend to take out as many enemies as possible before they take you down or the clock hits zero.

Totally new to the franchise, these super-concentrated hot spots distill all the fury of Multiplayer into a whole new breed of close combat. Scoping the Mediterranean, Hamburg, a sprawling vacation resort and even the Scottish Islands, players hungry for action will have no shortage of venues to test their Multiplayer and Special Ops skills. After this download is complete, please download the accompanying Collection 2 maps from the in-game STORE option in the MULTIPLAYER menu.
Content: Collection 1 Price: 1200 Microsoft Points Availability: Check availability in your Xbox LIVE region Dash Text: If you are a Call of Duty Elite premium member, you already have access to the content in this Content Collection. Redeploying with an arsenal of content unlike any in franchise history, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s first downloadable “Collection” arrives stockpiled with not only four Multiplayer/Survival Mode Maps, but two Special Ops Missions—the first time Call of Duty has ever made Special Ops downloadable online. Armed with just this one content pack, players can choose between heading to a militarized Central Park in “Liberation,” destroying scenic vistas in a seaside Italian getaway in “Piazza,” raining glass on New York passersby from 70-stories-up in “Overwatch,” and battling beside a downed Air Force One in “Black Box.” As if that breadth of multiplayer variety wasn’t enough, fans of Special Ops can hop aboard snowmobiles to infiltrate a diamond mine in “”Black Ice” or head to India, where “Negotiator” will leave the fate of hostages in their hands. In a class of its own with half-a-dozen forms of content, Modern Warfare 3’s first downloadable “Collection” offers a range of combat and co-op the likes of which has never been seen before.
Elite Drop 4: Black Box Battle beside a downed Air Force One in "Black Box." Multi-level homes overlook the neighboring streets, creating a deadly kill zone for players on the ground. With clear sight lines from house to house, however, snipers are far from safe, with counter-sniping an ever-present threat to their dominance. Those that prefer close-quarters combat can succeed in the tight confines of the crashed airplane or in hunting down enemies posted up within any of the surrounding homes
Elite Drop 5: Black Ice Shred ice from aboard your snowmobile as you infiltrate a diamond mine in the Special Ops mission, "Black Ice." Melt more than snow when you plant high-grade explosives to shut the mine down forever. This marks the first time Special Ops has been made downloadable online in franchise history.
Elite Drop 6: Negotiator Cash in all your karma as you head to India for high-stakes hostage extraction in "Negotiator," an all-new Special Ops mission in which you’ll breach-and-clear rooms and navigate surface streets to secure the safety of your VIPs. This marks the first time Special Ops has been made downloadable online in franchise history

If you are a Call of Duty Elite Premium Member, today is the day you have been waiting for. The 2012 content season kicks off today with the following two MW3 maps available for download. These maps are available today exclusively for Xbox 360 Call of Duty Elite Premium Members only:
This seaside Italian getaway is anything but idyllic, as tight corners and branching pathways pose great risk at every turn. Close-range combat dominates, and the team that best utilizes flanking routes will most often come out on top. Attacks from behind, above and below are an ever-constant threat. Keep up your awareness and don’t get taken by surprise.
Elite Drop 2: Liberation Map
A militarized Central Park stretches across a vast landscape, ripe for long-range sniper and LMG fire. Mounted turrets on either end lend power to anyone brave enough to expose themselves in exchange for deadly firepower. Plan out your movement and always be aware of nearby sightlines to avoid becoming fodder for the enemy.
