For Elite Subscribers, new maps and new Spec Op’s Missions are inbound with Elite Drops 9, 10, 11 and 12.
Two new Face Off maps, Getaway and Lookout are in this months Drop (So Elite’s get 4 Face Off Maps). Getaway takes place in a beachside mansion in Brazil, while Lookout is set in a forward observation post in Afghanistan. Also, a whole new regular multiplayer map, Oasis, is set on a beach resort in the United Arab Emirates.
Two new Spec-Ops mission modes Ironclad and Killswitch, complete with extra achievements and gamerscore are bundled. 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. 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.
All of this content and more will be featured in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection 2 DLC to be released on May 22nd 2012.
