Modern Warfare 3 to get 20 pieces of DLC over 9 months

There’s a heck of a lot of DLC in store for Modern Warfare 3. Twenty different pieces, to be exact.

In this week’s PlayStation Store update, the PS Blog lends this description to the CoD Elite 1-Year subscription: “All the MW3 DLC (20 pieces) during the 9-month DLC season starting early 2012. Includes multiplayer and special ops maps.”

That’s a fair bit more DLC than any CoD before it. Black Ops had five extra map packs post-launch. And spread over 9 months suggests we’ll see at least two packs a month. Perhaps then these packs will be cheaper than previous offerings?
