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.This content drop will be available to Elite Premium Subscribers on February 21st.

have confirmed that PlayStation 3 owners can expect Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's DLC season to kick off on the 28th of February 2012 in the US (so Feb 29th for Aus), at which point subscribers of the Call of Duty: Elite service will have access to the first two new maps for the game Piazza and Liberation -- yes, the same ones that Xbox 360 subscribers could access a week ago.
With Call of Duty DLC offerings looking to consistently lag a month behind the Xbox 360, the PS3 appears to be the second-class platform for this particular game in publisher Activision's eyes, however the poor chumps who bought the game on PC seem to be fairing worse still as there is still currently no word on when any of the DLC will be arriving on the desktop -- as the Call of Duty: Elite Service is still not an option for Windows players.
Watch the trailer below (from the Xbox 360 DLC launch last month) for a look at these two maps in action.

Today Activision have officialy revealed their intended DLC release schedule for Modern Warfare 3, promising nine months of regularly released new content -- well, for Xbox 360 players at least.
As the lead and favoured platform for the game, all the dates and releases pertain to the Xbox Live launch of the new content, with "at a later time" being the only dates given for PlayStation 3 and PC offerings (with still no date for when the Elite service will be available for the later).
All content drops for Call of Duty Elite premium members will occur once a month, starting in January for Xbox Live users and will continue through the year, ending in September. During the first three months of 2012, Activision will release five different content drops on three occasions in January, February and March, first on Xbox Live, followed by additional platforms at a later time.A glimpse at some of the new maps on the way can be found in the latest promotional trailer which you can watch embedded below or here on the HD video page.

If you have the hardware and bandwith and you'd like to get your very own server up and running, MW3 co-developer Sledgehammer Games have posted up a starter guide describing the basic setup and explaining some of the features you can tweak.
Unfortunately for those playing today, it might take a little longer than usual for your regular GSPs to get a full fleet of servers up and running as the server currently requires what appears to be an almost complete 14GB install of the game to function and with Steam's content servers seemingly straining at the moment, it's going to take a while for Australian providers to get these up and running in their data-centres.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is now available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. For our take on the console version of the game, hit up Steve's in-depth review.
