[UPDATED] Modern Warfare 3 Elite Drops 4, 5, and 6 Now Live for PS3, Collection 1 to Release on April 19th

Modern Warfare 3 Premium Elite users on the PS3 can now download the three new Elite drops. Drops 4, 5, and 6 include one multiplayer map, Black Box, and two spec ops missions, Negotiator and Black Ice.

The new drops can be downloaded through the in-game store menu option under multiplayer.  Thanks to MP1st reader Mat, the DLC sizes are as follows, Black Ice is 144MB, Negotiator is 17MB, and Black Box is 92 MB. In addition to the three drops, a 100KB access key and a new theme is downloaded. Earlier today, patch 1.12 went live, added new trophies.

On the PSN, Collection 1, which packs in four maps and two spec ops missions, is now available to pre-order for $14.99. If you pre-order Collection on or before April 18th, you get “an exclusive PS3 Theme as a gift with purchase.” This can only mean that on April 19th Collection 1 will be made available for non-Elite PS3 owners and hopefully PC owners as well. It’s not official at this point, but Xbox 360 players received Collection 1 last month on the 20th.

Update #1: Sledgehammer Games’ Michael Condrey has confirmed that non-paid Elite PS3 owners will be getting the first content collection on April 19th as we speculated above. He stated, “Its raining MW3 DLC! Drops to both Xbox 360 & PS3 Elite this week, Collection 1 to the PS3 on 4/19.”

Update #2: Infinity Ward, via Twitter, assured PS3 owners that Colletion 1 will be available on April 19, but there’s still no confirmation on when it will be released for PC. The studio explained, “Collection 1 hitting all PS3 next Thursday, April 19. PC coming soon”

    everytime I try to open the new maps it says that the map pack is broken or missing and to go to the store to resolve… I’ve downloaded the map pack and the access key 2 times already!! anyone else having this problem?

      had a similar problem. i re-downloaded the maps/missions(which you said you did) installed first then downloaded/installed the key. it worked for me.

      if all else fails you can delete Mw3 data (install data) from data utility folder (not your save!) and re-down everything.
