Modern Warfare 3: 1st Content Collection coming March 20th for Xbox 360


Everyone on Xbox LIVE will soon have access to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's 1st Content Collection.

On March 20th, the 1st Content Collection, which includes all six of the previous Modern Warfare 3 DLC drops, will be released on Xbox 360 for everyone on Xbox LIVE.

This includes January's "Liberation" and "Piazza" maps, this month's "Overwatch" map, the upcoming "Black Box" map and "Black Ice" and "Negotiator" Special Ops Missions.

Liberation is a militarized Central Park in the heart of NYC, featuring a vast landscape ripe for long-range sniper and LMG kills. Mounted turrets on opposing ends of the map offer overwhelming firepower to anyone brave enough to man them.

Piazza is set in an idyllic seaside village, Italian getaway gone rogue, where blind corners and a complex network of branching pathways pose danger at every turn. Visceral close-quarters combat dominates in Piazza, and attacks from above and below are an ever-constant threat.

Overwatch drops you into a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper," Activision said of the new map. "The battle takes place along two levels in a near symmetrical layout, with the central bridge and side routes open to attack from multiple angles. Watch your every step, as a lack of safety barriers surrounding the perimeter leaves nothing between you and a 70 story fall to the ground below.

Modern Warfare 3 Creative Strategist Robert Bowling also announced that Call of Duty Elite Premium members on Xbox LIVE will get a chance to download and play the latest 3 drops: Black Box, Negotiator, and Black Ice on March 13th.

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.

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.

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.

He also revealed a first look at the Black Box map, which can be seen above.
