Activision: Modern Warfare 3 DLC Won’t Be Locked to a Single Player Profile
The first batch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfar 3 DLC became available to subscribers to Activision’s Call of Duty: Elite this week, and players discovered something disheartening: DLC they downloaded on their Xbox 360s was locked to a single profile.
This is troubling because Activision has said that Elite downloads will be available for consoles with multiple users — meaning you wouldn’t have to download DLC twice in order for you and, say, a sibling or girlfriend to play MW3 on the same console but with a different profile. Luckily, it appears that the single-profile DLC issue is on the way to being fixed.
Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling sent a statement to Joystiq saying the DLC issue would be fixed, according to a report.
“We understand that ELITE Premium Members on Xbox Live who purchased the latest DLC Content Drop for Modern Warfare 3 are unable to access that content while signed into other profiles on the same console that originally downloaded the content,” Bowling said. “This is unintentional and we will work to get an update out as soon as possible that corrects this issue and allows you to continue to enjoy the new maps.”
So there you go. Sit tight, your MW3 DLC will be available to all your dorm roommates soon enough.
