Activision is set to deploy a brand new batch of downloadable content for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on the Xbox 360 later today, this time bringing three new maps for the Faceoff mode, as well as one new Spec Ops mission.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
players who also bought a Call of Duty Elite premium membership have received a wide array of free content ever since the beginning of the year.
The latest batch of free goodies is scheduled to arrive later today, and consists of three maps for the Faceoff mode – Vortex, U-Turn, and Intersection – as well as one new mission for the Spec Ops mode named Arctic Recon.
You can check out details about each of the content drops below.
No storm shelter can keep you safe in “Vortex,” the all-new "Face Off" map that places you just outside the danger zone of a devastating tornado.
A bombed-out, gridlocked highway provides a perfect backdrop for combatants on this all-new "Face Off" map, where oil fields burn black high above six-lanes' worth of abandoned cars, buses and paths for attack.
A New York bridge overpass provides the backdrop for this all-new "Face Off" map in which an ultra-condensed 2-block battle zone allows players to fight on the first and second floors of surrounding apartments and bombed-out bodegas.
Requiring surgical precision by air, land, and sea, this new Special Ops mission tasks you with destroying a Russian battleship by planting beacons for an air strike. Take control of a recon helicopter to reveal the beacon locations before fighting off forces on the ground to ensure the ship never leaves port.
The new maps are expected to appear later today via Xbox Live exclusively for Call of Duty Elite premium members. Until then, check out a few screenshots with each of them below.
