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”.
With the November 8 release date for Infinity Ward and Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 getting closer and closer, this newly revealed list of Achievements for the game comes as no surprise. The 50 available cheevos span the game’s Campaign and Spec Ops modes but not multiplayer, which has been the standard for a number of years now.
A warning to those interested in checking out the full list: the descriptions for the core story-related Achievements are surprisingly explicit in terms of what they reveal. If you want to stay spoiler free, either cruise past the first 15 or so Achievements or skip the list (after the jump) entirely. After all, it’s not like we’ll be waiting much longer for the game.
