Call of Duty Elite premium subscribers get first map drop


The first two Modern Warfare 3 maps of a promised 20 map and gametype content drops planned for Elite premium subscribers over the next nine months has arrived.

Liberation: “Mounted turrets on either end lend power to anyone brave enough to expose themselves in exchange for deadly firepower. Plan out your movement and always be aware of nearby sightlines to avoid becoming fodder for the enemy.”

Piazza: “Close-range combat dominates, and the team that best utilizes flanking routes will most often come out on top. Attacks from behind, above and below are an ever-constant threat. Keep up your awareness and don’t get taken by surprise.”

Because of the licensing deal between Activision and Microsoft, the maps are on Xbox 360 first, and non-Elite players can expect a bundle of the first five maps in March, with the PC and PS3 release of the map bundle sometime in April.
