Modern Warfare 3: ELITE Content Drops 16, 17 & 18

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.

Content Drops 16 – 18 Release Dates:

Xbox 360 Elite Subscriber: 17th July 2012
PlayStation 3 Elite Subscriber: Around 19th August 2012
Xbox 360: Somepoint in July as part of Map Pack 3.
PlayStation 3: Somepoint in August as part of Map Pack 3.
PC: Somepoint in August as part of Map Pack 3.

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).


Call of Duty Content Calendar Updated! July to bring 2 new multiplayer maps and 1 Spec Ops

The official Call of Duty content calendar for ELITE has finally been properly updated. We’ve waited a long time for the badly maintained page to reveal what is in store for us in the rest of the season and we finally have some answers and an idea of what will complete the Call of Duty DLC Season.

So in July we are finally going to be getting two brand new Multiplayer maps (Something which we haven’t had for over two months now) which have been greatly missed due to the addition of the Face Off game mode and the various maps recently released for that.

Alongside the two Multiplayer Maps in July, Xbox 360 ELITE Players will be getting their hands on another new Spec Ops Mission.

With 3 pieces of content scheduled for August and September, it concludes the ELITE DLC Season, bringing the total ELITE Content Drops to 24 and the total Map Pack scheduled for release to 4.

So Call of Duty Content Collection 3 will consist of ELITE Content Drops 13 to 18 and will be released some time in July for all Xbox 360 customers and naturally a month later for PC & PlayStation 3.

The Content Calendar also reveals that Content Collection Map Pack 4 will include ELITE DLC Drops 19 to 24.

Although we are only just over half way through the ELITE DLC Season, when we put it in those terms it seems so short! We cannot wait to see what July holds for Modern Warfare 3. The month that looks to be the most interesting is September too, which will give us three brand new Multiplayer maps!
