Modern Warfare 3 DLC available on PC in May

PC gamers have long felt like second-class citizens in the Call of Duty ecosystem. However, Modern Warfare 3 has proven those fears wrong--they're actually third class citizens.

Well, that finally changes next month, with the release of the first "Content Collection" on PC.
