PlayStation 3 ELITE members get content drops 7 & 8 this Thursday 10th of May

The April Content Drops 7 & 8 will be available for PlayStation 3 ELITE Premium members this Thursday (10th of May 2012), the two drops are brand new Multiplayer / Survival maps called Sanctuary and Foundation.

The Information was revealed by the Official ELITE Twitter feed: “PS3 ELITE Premium members get two new Content Drops this Thursday: #MW3 maps Sanctuary and Foundation. RT if you’re a #PS3 owner.”

The first map is called Sanctuary. “Suspended in the air one thousand feet up, you’ll battle more than altitude in the towering sandstone monasteries of Central Greece. Formed over millions of years, this sanctuary’s natural rock pillars have repelled invading armies and withstood the ravages of time but now they’ll face your deployment. Test your skills—and the ancient monks’ craftsmanship—with your arsenal of SMG’s, assault rifles and shotguns. Just remember: don’t look down.”

The second map is called Foundation. “Journey into the heart of South Korea for a decommissioned concrete factory where the cement flows and bullets fly. After decades of constructing roads and buildings, the towering facility is now a perfectly-constructed combat zone for sniping and run-and-gun rules of engagement. Don’t stand in awe of the towering concrete crusher at the center of the factory unless you want to see your kill ratio meet the same fate.”
