Missing new multiplayer maps from MW3 in the past few months? We sure have been but not to worry! The July DLC for Xbox 360 is about to change all that with two brand new multiplayer maps and a Spec Ops mission called Vertigo on their way.

For the past few months Modern Warfare 3′s DLC season has been taken up with the awesome Face Off game mode which now has a total of 7 maps available for it. Of course Face Off isn’t for everyone so it’s brilliant that multiplayer maps are returning.

Also, outside of the ELITE DLC Season, Terminal will be releasing free the same month as these brand new content drops. Xbox 360 ELITE Players will receive Terminal on the 17th and all other 360 player will on the 18th. Full info here.

ELITE Drop 16 is a Multiplayer map called Decomission. A graveyard of rotting [or add decommissioned here] ocean liners has not only given birth to a shantytown of locals, but a mid-sized Multiplayer Map populated in chokepoints; providing the perfect setting for shoreline-based combat.

ELITE Drop 17 is a Multiplayer map called Offshore. Trapped on an oil rig in the middle of the ocean, you have nowhere to go but directly at your enemies in this new Multiplayer map boasting helipads, cranes, and countless perches for snipers eager to pick off the competition. Did we mention to look down or else you may fall off?

ELITE Drop 18 is a brand new Spec Ops mission called Vertigo.The luxurious “Oasis” hotel in Dubai hosts the latest Special Ops mission, in which players must use laser-guided RPG’s to dispatch waves of helicopters. Utilize rooftop advantage to defend from waves of enemies, before parachuting to a ground-level exfil point.

How do I get it the drops?

If you are an Elite premium member then the next time you go into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer you will get a message saying that new content is available and then it will download it automatically. If not then make sure you visit the “Store” menu option where you should be presented with a message. The content will roll out slowly around the world so don’t be alarmed if it doesn’t show up straight away.

There is more detailed information on how to download it here for Elite members on this page.

Note: You can still become an Elite member after the Drops have been released and still get all the Drops that have been and will be released.

If you are not an Elite member then you will need to wait till the content is released as part of a map pack which will include 5 pieces of content. Then you can purchase it through the PlayStation Network, XBOX Live or Steam (For PC users).
