With the new Call of Duty: Elite service that was launched alongside Modern Warfare 3 and the whole new Drop system you should check our article here for how it all works: http://www.callofdutymappacks.com/news/mw3-content-season-how-the-content-drops-and-content-collections-will-work-and-roadmap/
Shots break out on a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper, 80 stories up. Battle takes place along two levels in a near symmetrical layout, with the central bridge and side routes open to attack from multiple angles. It has 13 thousand square feet of death dealing extravagance, complete with a restaurant, a pent house and loads of sniping nooks and crannies. Watch your every step, as a lack of boundaries surrounding the perimeter leaves nothing to prevent you from falling far to the ground below to your untimely death!
“Overwatch is the third Content Drop in Modern Warfare 3’s Content Season, which will include more than 20 pieces of brand new content over the 9 month season. Elite Drops 4-6 will be available in March for Premium Members on Xbox Live and will include the multiplayer map Black Box and two brand new Special Ops Missions, Black Ice and Negotiator.
