Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will begin Season 1 with a round of original content. Although the multiplayer is established around the maps of the original installment of Modern Warfare 2, Sledgehammer Games has prepared stages dedicated to this third installment of the reboot. These contents, as is usual in the franchise in recent years, will arrive at no additional cost.

This first wave of content is scheduled to launch sometime at the beginning of December on PS5, PS4, Xbox, and PC. however, the developers have just released a pre-season patch that brings with it a variety of fixes and updates to prepare the game for the upcoming content framework. Below you’ll find the patch notes, but as always you’ll be able to find more in-depth information on the game’s official blog.
