Modern Warfare 3 Elite Drops 4-6 released on PS3

Modern Warfare 3 Elite drops 4, 5, and 6 have been released for PlayStation 3 and can now be downloaded by all MW3 Premium Elite users.

These Elite drops include the multiplayer map Black Box and two special ops missions, Negotiator and Black Ice.

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.

The official patch notes haven't been released, but according to reports, the update adds six new trophies for the special ops missions.  These should be the same ones that were added to the Xbox 360 when the same drops arrived last month.  They include:

  • Shotgun Diplomacy
    • Complete the Special Ops mission “Negotiator” on any difficulty.
  • Not on My Watch
    • Rescue all the hostages in the Special Ops mission “Negotiator.”
  • Skilled Negotiator
    • Complete the Special Ops mission “Negotiator” on Veteran difficulty.
  • Slippery Slope
    • Complete the “Black Ice” Special Ops mission on any difficulty.
  • A Baker’s Dozen
    • Run over and kill 13 enemies with the snowmobile in the “Black Ice” Special Ops mission.
  • Ice in Your Veins
    • Complete the “Black Ice” Special Ops mission on Veteran difficulty.

In addition, it has been suggested that Collection 1, which was released last month on Xbox 360, will be arriving on the PS3 as early as April 19th.  MP1st is reporting that Collection 1, which consists of the four previously released multiplayer maps and two spec ops missions, is now available to pre-order for $14.99.

If you pre-order Collection 1 on or before April 18th, you get an "exclusive PS3 Theme as a gift with purchase."  This suggests that Collection 1 will be made available for non-Elite PS3 owners on April 19th.
