MW3 Overwatch

Modern Warfare 3: Content Drop 3

The third content drop for Modern Warfare 3 is a stand alone release of a brand new multiplayer map, loosely based on the much loved Highrise map from Modern Warfare 2 called Overwatch.

Content Drop 3 release dates:

Xbox 360 Elite Subscriber: 21st February 2012
PlayStation 3 Elite Subscriber:
29th March 2012
Xbox 360:
  20th March 2012 (As part of a full map pack)
PlayStation 3:
19th April 2012 (As part of a full map pack)
Likely not until April (As part of a Full Map Pack DLC)

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:

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. Some details on those DLC’s here.

The Modern Warfare 3 Content Season is co-developed by Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software. All content is available first to Premium Members on Xbox 360, but will be available to Premium Members on PS3 before non-premium members on their console.”

To play the new map: Once you’ve downloaded the new maps there will be a new playlist type called Elite Playlists for online Multiplayer, from which you can play your new maps. Also for survival mode, there will be an option called “The struggle continues with all new maps”, select that and you’re on your way!

    I hope xbox goes broke for their dlc exlusivity shennaningans and paid multiplayer bs. as soon as i got my ps3, xbox is rightfully collecting dust for being the creation of ppl that have no clue what it is to be a gamer. Long Live Free Gaming, Down with greedy usurpers. Activision stop being greedy dicks in microsoft hands, realease your DLC across all platforms at the same time.
