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.

Content Drops 4, 5, 6 will be coming to PS3 “around April 12ish”


In the recent ELITE TV video from Call of Duty, it was revealed that the content drops 4 to 6 for premium ELITE PlayStation 3 members will be coming “on or around 4/12″.

The PlayStation 3 ELITE members will also be getting the third drop Overwatch on the 29th of March.

Oneofswords from Activision reveals explains the reason there is no fixed date for the PlayStation 3: “Why “on or around?” Because the exact posting time for PSN DLC is up to Sony, since they run and update the PlayStation Store. Maybe that updated will be mid-morning, or maybe it will be late in that day; maybe that will make it actually technically the next day if you live in Europe, which would be “around 4/12.” Activision can’t promise a date because Activision doesn’t update the digital stores itself. I think of it as if Activision is Pepsi and Sony is the grocery store; we deliver the fizzy water, but they actually run the checkout line.”

Either way at least we know it is one its way to us in early April so it will be far less than a month after the release of Overwatch that the next three drops will be arriving! Subscribe to our RSS feed here to keep updated with all the latest info.
