Modern Warfare 3's first DLC will release on Xbox 360 at the end of January, Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling told CoD Elite members today. While the exact nature of the content hasn't been revealed yet, Bowling has hinted that rather than the simple standard maps-'n'-weapons loadout, players can expect variety in areas such as Spec Ops missions as well.

Because of Microsoft/Activision's first-look deal, the download's January 24 date applies only to Xbox 360 players: PC and PS3 players get to wait another couple of weeks for the DLC.
