Even though Activision has been neglecting their DLC calendar for Modern Warfare 3, Executive Producer Mark Rubin has taken it upon himself to reveal the next content drop for the game. Unfortunately, what Rubin revealed wasn’t the classic maps gamers were expecting, but is nonetheless some pretty robust content.
As part of June’s content drop, which should release tomorrow for Xbox 360 Call of Duty Elite Premium members, Infinity Ward is rolling out a new Spec Ops mission (Arctic Recon) and three new maps for the new Face Off mode. There are no details, screens or video, regarding any of these new additions to Modern Warfare 3‘s multiplayer, but as soon as Rubin knows more he says he will be sure to share it.
It’s safe to say that Arctic Recon will require some type of objective be completed in a snow-covered landscape, but that’s just obvious extrapolating. As far as the new Face Off maps — which are titled Vortex, U-Turn, and Intersection — are concerned, Rubin says these will very likely be the last released for the new, more intimate mode.
Last month’s Content Collection 2 added the new mode and featured four maps (two of which were released free of charge), and coupled with these three new additions will bring the final tally up to 7 maps. The new Face Off mode isn’t going to be for everybody, but it’s good to see Infinity Ward support their experiments with solid content.
Up until this point Activision has been quite forthcoming about Modern Warfare 3 details, hoping to justify the additional cost of enrolling in Call of Duty Elite Premium, but in recent weeks they’ve been pretty quiet. This, of course, led to much speculation about Modern Warfare 3’s next DLC featuring some classic maps from Modern Warfare 2, but that pipe dream has yet to come to pass.
Make sure to check back tomorrow for more details about Modern Warfare 3‘s June Content Drop including closer looks at all of the new maps.
