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.”
Better late than never: The long wait is over! PC players will be able to purchase the first Modern Warfare 3 map pack on the 8th of May 2012. To download visit Steam here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/42695/
Over three weeks after the release of the Map Pack for PS3 users the PC community has finally been blessed with 4 brand new multiplayer maps and 2 Spec Ops missions.
The release date was revealed by Infinity Ward’s official Twitter feed: “#MW3 PC DLC Content Collection 1 available May 8th on @steam_games. Includes 4 Maps for MP and Survival Mode and 2 Spec Ops Missions.”
We have written before about how the PC community is being slowly pushed aside by Activision & Infinity Ward as they seem to be just an after thought, the late release of the DLC & lack of the Call of Duty: ELITE service are prime examples of this.
The map pack will cost $15 and you will be able to purchase it through Steam.
The first map pack for Modern Warfare 3 will include the first 6 content drops that ELITE members have received over the last few months.
Below is the content that will be included, check out each post for information on all the content in this collection.
With May just round the corner, the next flurry of Modern Warfare 3 content is on its way for Premium ELITE members. For the PlayStation 3, ELITE members have Content Drops 7 & 8 to look forward to while the DLC for the Xbox 360 remains a mystery.
What we do know is that four, yes four multiplayer maps will be released in May for the Xbox 360. The teased Nostalgia Map Pack from way back before the DLC season started comes to mind as it included 4 multiplayer maps.
Check out the picture below, it shows off 4 previous Modern Warfare maps which are as follows:
Terminal from Modern Warfare 2 (Set in an Airpot terminal, luggage and planes everywhere, lots of glass too!)
Favela from Modern Warfare 2 (The slums of Rio de Janeiro, lots of ground and rooftop battles!)
Shipment from Modern Warfare (The smallest Call of Duty Map you’ll ever see! It’s basically as square map with a few shipping containers in the middle! The most intense map ever!)
Crossfire from Modern Warfare (A map I personally loved, great for sniping along the large main road and great close quarters combat in this desert town!)
Only time will tell what will truly be in store the Content Drops 9 through to 12 but either way, four brand new multiplayer maps will add a lot to the game so we can’t wait to see what they are. Hopefully Call of Duty will be releasing an official walkthrough video with these new drops, something it appears they forgot to do with Drops 7 & 8!
