Ah yes hot on the heals of Content Drops #1 & #2 which saw two new maps for Modern Warfare 3, Activision has announced that the 3rd Content Drop is going to arrive on February 21st. Like the first two Content Drops #3 is a map, Overwatch.
Overwatch is set on top of a New York City skyscraper. The battle take place along two levels in a near symmetrical layout, with the central bridge and side routes open to attack from multiple angles. A nice touch is there are no safety barriers surrounding the perimeter so you can fall 70 stories to the ground below!
Overwatch will land first for Xbox 360 Elite Premium members and then trickle out to other systems and subscriber levels.
Activision also let known that Drops 4-6 will land in March (according to their calendar) and include a new map “Black Box” and two new Special Ops Missions “Black Ice” and “Negotiator”
I’ve been impressed with the first two Content Drops (Piazza and Liberation) so I’m looking forward to see more roll-out. Having multiple development teams on the content calendar is starting to pan out for Activision and hopefully they’ll churn out not just quantity but quality as well.
