Activision has today announced that the first Content Collection featuring four new multiplayer maps and two Special Ops missions, is finally available for any Xbox 360 fans of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. While these were originally available only for Call of Duty Elite members, the six new maps offer a breath of fresh air to the current rotation, giving gamers a new places to compete and win.
Content Collection #1 sets the bar for variety, value and fan-service in the FPS DLC marketplace, featuring six fully-fledged Call of Duty experiences. The full loadout includes:
- Black Ice: This Special Ops mission plunges combatants deep into a frozen diamond mine via a snowmobile in order to infiltrate a secret weapons plant and initiate the self-destruct sequence to take the facility offline for good.
- Negotiator: India is the backdrop for a Special Ops hostage extraction, where gamers must execute flawless breach-and-clears and negotiate a maze of surface streets to ensure the safety of rescued civilians.
- Liberation: Players take up positions in a militarised Central Park in the heart of NYC, a sprawling deathscape ripe for long-range sniper and LMG kills.
- Piazza: An idyllic seaside village, an Italian getaway gone rogue, where blind corners and a complex warren of branching pathways pose danger at every turn.
- Overwatch: A compact, sky-high battle arena set in a construction site atop a New York City office tower.
- Black Box: Players seek tactical advantage in multi-level hillside homes overlooking a downed Air Force One, as a luxe SoCal neighborhood turns into a warzone.
Currently available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 1,200 Microsoft Points, the new DLC pack is open to all, and will be rolled out to other platforms at a later date.
On a side note, there still isn't any word on when Call of Duty Elite will be coming to PC, with many players left in the dark as to whether they will be able to get in on the action. The FAQ on the Call of Duty Elite website still claims that the system is in-development, but no real news has been shared.
