The third map in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3′s current content season is now available for Call of Duty Elite Premium members on Xbox Live.
Overwatch takes place in a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper, where battles will rage along two levels in a near symmetrical layout. A lack of safety barriers around the perimeter should provide plenty of chuckles for those who enjoy watching their enemies fall 70 stories to their deaths. The map is in the same general location of the New York setting in the single-player campaign, which depicts a world war in major cities of the globe. But it’s a fresh map for multiplayer fans.
Modern Warfare 3′s content season will ultimately include more than 20 pieces of brand new DLC over a 9-month period. The first maps, Liberation and Piazza, were launched last month. Another new map called Black Box and two new Special Ops Missions are coming in March. Call of Duty Elite Premium members on Xbox Live get first dibs on the content as part of an exclusivity deal Microsoft made with publisher Activision. PlayStation 3 and PC Elite members will get access to the DLC at a later date, while everyone else will eventually be able to download the content in a bundle pack.

Activision Blizzard’s content campaign for acclaimed first person shooter continues with the addition of a new map.
The latest DLC in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s Content Drop campaign is the “Overwatch” map. It is available now for Call of Duty Elite premium members on Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE.
Overwatch is a new map that is set on a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper and it’s the third DLC in a planned twenty new Content Drops that will be rolled out once a month over the next nine months.
The map is laid out over two levels with the central bridge and side routes, with no safety barriers around the perimeter adding a new level of danger for the player during combat.
Following the release of Overwatch, publisher Activision Blizzard is planning to push Elite Drops four to six for premium members on Xbox LIVE in March.
According to an Activision Blizzard spokesperson, the upcoming DLC is expected to consist of a multiplayer map called “Black Box” and two new Special Ops Missions, “Black Ice” and “Negotiator”.
While the content will be made available first on Xbox LIVE, premium members on Sony’s PlayStation Network will be able to access the content before non-premium members on their console.
Non-premium Call of Duty Elite members are able to purchase the new content via the Modern Warfare 3 Content Collections.
