Ok, you done now? Good. Beginning today, the Call of Duty content season kicks off with the release of two new maps for Modern Warfare 3: Piazza and Liberation.

Those without the premium service will have to wait for the map collections to be released as packages, which are expected to run $15 per pack. The first map collection is tentatively scheduled for a March release on the Xbox, with the PS3 and PC versions due a month later due to the exclusivity arrangement between Microsoft and Call of Duty.

As for the maps being released today:

“Liberation” will offer a look at a militarized, war torn version of New York’s Central Park that features wide open areas flanked by mounted turrets.

“Piazza” is set in an Italian seaside village where blind corners branch into a complex series of pathways that leave people open to close quarters combat, or attacks from above.

Check us out tomorrow for a full rundown on the levels.
