Modern Warfare 3 DLC will be released first on Xbox 360, announced developer Infinity Ward for the downloadable content of the upcoming title. This will not come as a surprise to Call of Duty owners, who were used to the Xbox 360 being the first platform to gain DLC; way ahead of other platforms like the PS3 and PC.
What isn’t known is how much DLC will be produced for Modern Warfare 3 or how much it will cost.
However you can expect that the amount of downloadable content for Modern Warfare 3 will probably be comparable to that of Call of Duty: Black Ops, as developers are increasingly getting a lot of their revenue via paid content.
There will also be exclusive content being developed for those Call of Duty fans who are signed up to the Call of Duty Elite premium service, although its unclear how much of that exclusive content will be related to gameplay, we know that much of it will be existential such as exclusive video and episodic content; like a possible Call of Duty Movie.
We’ll likely learn about the first Modern Warfare 3 DLC at the upcoming Call of Duty XP 2011 Experience conference in September.
Here is a trailer revealing the Co-Op Spec Ops mode.
