Activision and Infinity Ward have announced the next content drop for the record breaking Modern Warfare 3, set to be released on May 15 for Xbox 360 Premium Elite members and May 22 for non-premuim Elite Xbox 360 players (what a mouthful!).
Free members will recieve the 3 Multiplayer/Survival Mode Maps (Foundation, Sanctuary, Oasis) 2 Special Ops Missions (Kill Switch and Iron Clad) and the introduction of a new playlist "Face Off" combined with 2 free maps specifically designed for this playlist (Erosion and Aground).
Face Off is a 1v1 or 2v2 playlist that pits players against each other in what is described as an "action packed" mode that only incorporates the smallest maps in Modern Warfare 3.
Xbox 360 Elite Premium members will recieve the multiplayer map "Oasis" along with the 2 Special Ops Missions "Kill Switch" and "Iron Clad" as well as 4 maps to be played in the all-new Face Off playlist (Erosion, Aground, Lookout and Getaway)
Special Ops Missions
Sanctuary - Suspended in the air one thousand feet up, you'll battle more than altitude in the towering sandstone monasteries of Central Greece. Formed over millions of years, this sanctuary's natural rock pillars have repelled invading armies and withstood the ravages of time but now they'll face your deployment. Test your skills—and the ancient monks' craftsmanship—with your arsenal of SMG's, assault rifles and shotguns. Just remember: don't look down.
Foundation - Journey into the heart of South Korea for a decommissioned concrete factory where the cement flows and bullets fly. After decades of constructing roads and buildings, the towering facility is now a perfectly-constructed combat zone for sniping and run-and-gun rules of engagement. Don't stand in awe of the towering concrete crusher at the center of the factory unless you want to see your kill ratio meet the same fate.
Oasis - Though once a picturesque escape for vacationers, the sprawling Hotel Oasis is now a Multiplayer paradise, with multiple lanes of combat built atop an ancient fortress.
Erosion - Make your way through Mediterranean ruins and ancient aqueducts, using leftover Roman masonry for thousand-year-old cover in this new "Face Off" map.
Aground - Head to Scotland's Orkney Islands for the latest "Face Off" map, where treacherous cliff faces, networks of caves and the rusted and ruined remains of a grounded transport ship provide for constant combat.
Getaway - The first "Face Off" map in Modern Warfare® franchise history, what once was a tropical beach getaway boasting exotic aquariums and oversized pools is now a haven for ruthless run-and-gun violence.
Lookout - Carved into a combat-weary mountainside, this new "Face Off" map pits you against your opposition in a forward observation base littered in chokepoints and tight corridors
Kill Switch - Armed with an Electromagnetic Pulse, your sniper team must neutralize a Russian carrier in this Special Ops Mission where only a bird’s eye view can keep your team in command as you breach the ship from underwater.
Iron Clad - With one player helming a tank and the other escorting it on foot, you’ll clear beaches and take cover in plane wreckage as you escape Hamburg from behind enemy lines in this all-new Special Ops Mission.
Content Collection 2 will be avaliable for Xbox 360 Elite Premium mebers on May 15 and for free Xbox 360 users on May 22. No date had been announced for PS3 or PC yet but they have been confirmed.
