Plus, new Spec Ops missions detailed.

Xbox Live riff-raff who haven't stumped up for a premium Call of Duty Elite subscription can download the first batch of Modern Warfare 3 DLC from 20th March, Activision has announced.

Content Collection #1, the first of four such packs due out this year, includes four multiplayer maps (Liberation, Piazza, Overwatch and Black Box) and two new Spec Ops mission (Black Ice and Negotiator). A price hasn't yet been confirmed.

Premium Elite members can grab Black Box, Black Ice and Negotiator from 13th March. See below for a screenshot from each.

Black Box plays out in a luxurious neighbourhood in Southern California around the wreckage of a downed Air Force One.

Black Ice task players with infiltrating a diamond mine on snowmobiles and planting high-grade explosives to shut it down.

Finally, Negotiator is a hostage extraction mission set in India.

As usual, PC and PlayStation 3 gamers will have to wait a while longer - all Modern Warfare 3 DLC is a timed Microsoft exclusive.
