The third map in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s current content season is now available for Call of Duty Elite Premium members on Xbox Live.
Overwatch takes place in a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper, where battles will rage along two levels in a near symmetrical layout. A lack of safety barriers around the perimeter should provide plenty of chuckles for those who enjoy watching their enemies fall 70 stories to their deaths. The map is in the same general location of the New York setting in the single-player campaign, which depicts a world war in major cities of the globe. But it’s a fresh map for multiplayer fans.
Modern Warfare 3’s content season will ultimately include more than 20 pieces of brand new DLC over a 9-month period. The first maps, Liberation and Piazza, were launched last month. Another new map called Black Box and two new Special Ops Missions are coming in March. Call of Duty Elite Premium members on Xbox Live get first dibs on the content as part of an exclusivity deal Microsoft made with publisher Activision. PlayStation 3 and PC Elite members will get access to the DLC at a later date, while everyone else will eventually be able to download the content in a bundle pack.
