Content Drop 3: Overwatch released for PlayStation ELITE today with 1.11 patch


As expected, the PlayStation 3 ELITE Community will be able to download and play the third content drop today.

Overwatch is a brand new Multiplayer / Survival map for Modern Warfare 3 which is based on the much loved Highrise map from Modern Warfare 2.

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.

Note: The map download file is 87MB.

Full information on the new Overwatch map can be found here, including videos and images.

Release dates for non-premium ELITE PlayStation 3 & PC map packs have not yet been announced but follow our twitter feed to stay up to date on all the latest information.

Along with the new content, a patch / update for the PlayStation 3 Modern Warfare 3 was released dubbed 1.11 which fixes some problems that people were having with the new map originally.

Note: Some users have been experiencing problems where overwatch would not download properly and once in game a message would appear telling them that the DLC was missing or damaged. To fix this, make sure you have the 1.11 patch installed before downloading the new map.

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.”
