Modern Warfare 3 Elite DLC Dated

The latest content drops for Modern Warfare 3 have finally been dated. They’ll hit PS3 premium elite subscribers on April 12th. Well, give or take an hour or five.

Speaking on his blog, Activision’s Dan Amrich revealed that the precise date is not controlled by the publisher and as such it is impossible to put a precise time on the release.

“The exact posting time for PSN DLC is up to Sony, since they run and update the PlayStation Store,” he explained.

“Maybe that updated will be mid-morning, or maybe it will be late in that day; maybe that will make it actually technically the next day if you live in Europe, which would be “around 4/12.” 

He continued, “Activision can’t promise a date because Activision doesn’t update the digital stores itself. I think of it as if Activision is Pepsi and Sony is the grocery store; we deliver the fizzy water, but they actually run the checkout line. Make sense?”

Pretty much, Dan. Pretty much.

Modern Warfare 3 Content Drops 4, 5 and 6 are the Black Box map, plus Special Ops missions Black Ice and Negotiator. They will be made available to non Elite subscribers at a later date. Video below... branded with Xbox 360 guff. Sorry.

2 weeks after Overwatch isn't bad. At least we don't have to wait over a month again.

This news came somewhat late. I knew about April 12th a few days ago, though if they were waiting for a 'legitimate' source before posting then that makes it understandable as I didn't see the information in the blog mentioned above.

That Dan Amrich reminds me of a handicapped kid I grew up with, he was full grown but acted and spoke like a 5-year-old. The difference was this kid was honest, likeable and couldn't help his condition, unlike fatboy Amrich.

I'm confused, when will be able the PS3 regular users (Not Elite) to download the pack with the new 4 maps (Plaza and the others) and the 2 new spec ops? And this DLC of this article is another DLC or the same one?

The authors here need to learn to stop putting up random YouTubers' videos and actually post from the official pages. Otherwise, you just get removed videos like this.
