Hey guys

i have just purchased the new maps on MW3 for 1200 points but I can't seem to play them ??

Am I missing something? I'm not an Elite subscriber and will never pay what their wanting! although I thought the DLC maps were available to play for non Elite people

Anyone else having the same problem?

i think you have to select the game type from the menu that is new maps only as they are not in with the other maps yep try private match and se if they are in there

Have you pressed the back/select button in a lobby to ensure the DLC is enabled? (the screen should show at the bottom, back button = DLC disabled)

Don't forget map selections are random.

Is it because you are offshore and your Xbox is at home?

I'm at home now lol

I have tried to play the private match and the bonus maps selection is at the top

When I select this it then asks me to purchase Elite subs or download the maps...

but I have already downloaded the dam maps lol

Must be doing something wrong

I've went to download again and it says the file is 108.00 KB

that's surely can't just be the size of the file

Elite is free.

Just strange.....

Every other cod game I've managed no problem to play the new maps, but this time it seems a little complicated

Still haven't managed to play them yet :(

So you will pay for the maps but not Elite? Considering Elite works out much cheaper than buying all the map packs separately, seems a bit stupid not to...

But the maps aren't working just on their own!!

Arrrghhhhh

try clearing the last update for mw3 you took then get it again e.g clear the hard drive cache

Either restart your PS3 or wait for Activision to sort it out with a patch.

I downloaded the elite drop maps and it's all working :)

Strange way to play these maps but hey ho!
spymeo#15

Jcrew#16
MY friend had the same problem last night (4/11/12) he called Xbox and they said theres a problem with the maps and that it should be fixed soon. When he went to store and then download nothing happened.

You can't get maps that have not been released to NON ELITE PREMIUM SUBSCRIBERS

Your 1200 bought the maps that are out on MARKETPLACE for non premium elite members. Which are Liberation / Piazza / Overwatch and Black Box (The ELITE stuff is only made available to FULL members via the in game store) So you'll have to wait until Sanctuary and Foundation + the other 2 maps as yet to be confirmed are out to Non premium members or buy the Subscription to gain early access.
