Summary of all MW3 Content Collections and DLC



It has been a confusing year with Modern Warfare 3 DLC to say the least, with a brand new Content Drop system alongside the new ELITE feature and new DLC each month there has been a lot of information to absorb. This post here is designed to sum up all the ELITE DLC Season and all the Content Collection Map Packs currently available.

Modern Warfare 3 has been the first ever Call of Duty game which has expanded its DLC content beyond just Multiplayer maps, MW3 has included a huge number of brand new Spec Ops missions as well as new game modes.

All Content Collections are priced at 1200 Microsoft points / $15.

The ELITE DLC Season will end for the Xbox 360 in September and will end for PS3 players in November.

Content Collection Map Pack 1 is currently available for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. It includes 4 Multiplayer Maps and 2 Spec Ops Missions.

Collection 1 includes the following 6 pieces of unique content:

  • Liberation
  • Piazza
  • Overwatch
  • BlackBox
  • Black Ice
  • Negotiator

Content Collection Map Pack 2 is currently available for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. It includes 3 Multiplayer Maps, 2 Spec Ops Missions and 2 Face Off maps.

Collection 2 includes the following 7 pieces of unique content:

  • Sanctuary

  • Kill Switch
  • Ironclad
  • Getaway
  • Lookout

Face Off is a game mode which is available for all MW3 players for free and was released alongside two free maps outside of any content collections and ELITE dlc season.

“Normally in itself one-on-one isn’t particularly creatively innovative, but what we’ve done is design the maps deliberately for this style of play. In normal map development you have large maps that have long sight lines, then when you make smaller maps you shorten the sight line – the engagement distance becomes smaller when the map becomes smaller.”

Content Collection Map Pack 3 (Known as the Chaos Map Pack) will be available for the Xbox 360 on the 8th of August and just over a month later for the PlayStation 3 and PC. Collection 3 includes 4 Spec Ops missions, 3 Face Off maps and a brand new game mode called Chaos Mode.

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.

Modern Warfare 3: Content Collection 4


It feels like only yesterday we were talking about how excited we were about Liberation and Piazza back in January when the MW3 DLC Season kicked off but now 8 months later we are about to mark the end of the Modern Warfare 3 content season with Content Collection Map Pack 4.

Content Collection 4 is the last and final map pack available for all non-premium ELITE MW3 Players. If you don’t have any extra content for MW3 yet then Collection 4 will definitely be the one to get as it include FIVE brand new multiplayer maps. So if Face Off and Spec Ops missions aren’t your thing and you love the good old fashioned Call of Duty gaming then Collection 4 is the one to get.

Content Collection 4 Release Dates:

Xbox 360: 6th of September 2012
PlayStation 3: Sometime in October 2012
PC: Sometime in October 2012

Content Collection 4 includes the following ELITE Content Drops: 16, 17, 22, 23 & 24.

ELITE Drop 16 is a Multiplayer map called Decomission. A graveyard of rotting [or add decommissioned here] ocean liners has not only given birth to a shantytown of locals, but a mid-sized Multiplayer Map populated in chokepoints; providing the perfect setting for shoreline-based combat.

ELITE Drop 17 is a Multiplayer map called Offshore. Trapped on an oil rig in the middle of the ocean, you have nowhere to go but directly at your enemies in this new Multiplayer map boasting helipads, cranes, and countless perches for snipers eager to pick off the competition. Did we mention to look down or else you may fall off?

 ELITE DROP 22: Gulch: Decades after fires charred this forgotten mining town, the red rock canyon gains new shades of red in “Gulch,” where the surrounding mountains, mine shafts and equipment sheds craft a perfect setting for high-tension combat.

ELITE DROP 23: Boardwalk: Head to the Jersey Coast for a sunny afternoon in “Boardwalk,” where you’ll face your enemies on the beach and fight for dominance at the arcade while still finding time to cut the line at the rollercoaster.
