Modern Warfare 3 ‘Overwatch’ Map Content Drop Coming This Month

Posted on February 7, 2012 AT 11:53am

THE BUZZ: Activision has announced the next content drop for Modern Warfare 3: The multiplayer map Overwatch.

The map will be available to Xbox 360 Call of Duty: Elite Premium Subscribers from February 21. ”Overwatch drops you into a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper,” says the publisher. ”The battle takes place along two levels in a near symmetrical layout, with the central bridge and side routes open to attack from multiple angles.”

Overwatch will be available to PlayStation 3 Elite subscribers in March. After that non-Elite subscribers will be able to download both content packs as a bundle.

In March Xbox 360 Elite subscribers will get one more map and two new game modes.

EGM’s TAKE: Call of Duty DLC is getting more complicated by the week. Sadly non-Elite subscribers come off the worst in all this, as they now have to wait until sometime in March to get there hands on the three new maps, and by that point Xbox 360 Elite subscribers will already be enjoying another map and new game modes.

What do you think of the new map? Let us know in the comments below.
