Third Modern Warfare 3 Content Drop Gets Xbox LIVE Release Date


Activision has today announced that the third content drop for Modern Warfare 3 will hit Xbox LIVE on February 21st.

Just like the previous content, Call of Duty Elite premium members on Xbox LIVE will get access to the drop first, with non-subscribers, PlayStation 3 and PC users being able to download them at a later date.

The third content drop will be a new multiplayer map called Overwatch, a construction site on top of a New York City skyscraper. Action will take place along two levels in a near symmetrical layout, with the central bridge and side routes open to attack from multiple angles. You will need to watch your every step, as a lack of safety barriers surrounding the perimeter leaves nothing between you and a 70 story fall to the ground below!

For those of you who don’t know, Modern Warfare 3’s Content Season, will include more than 20 pieces of brand new content over a nine month period. Content drops four, five and six will be available in March for Elite premium members on Xbox LIVE, including the multiplayer map Black Box and two brand new Special Ops missions, Black Ice and Negotiator.

The full Modern Ware Content Season schedule can be seen here.
