Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 “Content Collection 2” continues the trend with a mass of DLC for Call of Duty addicts around the globe, featuring three multiplayer maps, two special ops maps, and a new competitive mode called Face Off.
Starting with the all-new Face Off Mode for multiplayer, two new maps named: Erosion and Aground will be available to download from May 15th, 2012. Erosion, has been described as Roman Ruins while Aground is set on a shipwreck off the coast of Scotland.
Michael Condrey, Co-Founder Sledgehammer Gamee says that Face Off is “Small maps, custom-created to have sight lines and lay outs to keep you in the action in 1 v 1 or 2 v 2.” According to Mark Rubin, Executive Producer, Infinity Ward,”You don’t spend your time running around the map looking for each other. You actually engage pretty quickly. You actually can still have the frantic fun gameplay we’re used to with Call of Duty, but with one or two guys.”
Two new Face Off maps, Getaway and Lookout will be released as part of the main DLC Collection 2 release. Getaway takes place in a beachside mansion in Brazil, while Lookout is set in a forward observation post in Afghanistan.
In addition, Modern Warfare 3 DLC Collection 2 will also offer three new standard multiplayer maps. Two maps, Sanctuary and Foundation, have already been released via the Call of Duty Elite service, but a new map, Oasis, is set on a beach resort in the United Arab Emirates.
Two new Spec-Ops mission modes have been announced, so that could come with extra achievements – although not set in stone. Ironclad is set immediately after the Hamburg mission from the single player campaign, with you and your pal making it back to the landing beach after the initial assault, or dying in the attempt. It features asynchronous combat, with one player clearing obstacles while the other engages in basic infantry combat. Then there’s a tank section, where one guy drives the tank and the other provided support.
The second Spec Ops mission, titled Killswitch, plays out in an all-new area set in a Russian dockyard. This mission has one player on the ground looking to detonate an EMP bomb, while another player snipes enemies from above.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 “Content Collection 2” will be released on May 22nd, 2012.
