Pappa needs a little me time

Last week, Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games and Activision revealed details of the "third content drop" that will be heading to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Premium Elite subscribers later this month.

Titled "Overwatch", this will be the third multiplayer map in the 2012 Season of Content that will see twenty "drops" released over a nine month period.

From the three screenshots released last week, many of you commented on how similar the new "Overwatch" map looked to the "High Rise" map from http://www.trueachievements.com/Modern-Warfare-2-xbox-3....htm, and from the new trailer released yesterday, it would appear that there are more than a few passing similarities between the two.

"Content Drop 3" will be available to download on February 21st.

This map certainly looks interesting, I did like Highrise on MW2 and Hardhat on MW3 is decent. It's just too bad that us non-elite subscribers are not gonna get to play it for a while.

It looks alright. I do hope they bring back some MW2 maps in the future. Judging by this, and since we have Hardhat, I'm guessing Highrise might not make a return.

I do hope Terminal comes back though.
How much for the whole kitten kaboodle?

Yeah Terminal and Favela were some of my favourites from MW2, hate the maps on this game though.

I'm sure they counted the two maps on the same day as two drops. Elite Premium has not shaped up to be everything they made it out to be.

It doesn't look bad, I'm with Mystic in the sense that remakes are usually preferred over new maps. Maybe not so much preferred, just would be nice to see them keep their standard maps and add new ones each game. 20 in a year though, that's impressive.
You seem a little furious...

Nice, loved High Rise, though if the map is as treacherous to navigate as they say, I'm a little worried that might encourage people to camp so they don't risk falling and get easy kills on people concentrating on keeping their footing. I don't know. But the map looks great, I have high hopes for it.
If they say "Ha! I killed you, you suck" they really said "Ha! You suck because even I can kill you"

The whole Elite thing isn't what I was hoping it would be. I was hoping for some gears of war type of content/playlists. So far its been very disappointing. I won't be going the elite route on the next go around if I do CoD again.

Since they decided to make non-elite subscribers wait months to get these map packs, I've decided I'm not going to buy them.. I like how GoW3 handled the subscription.. you get the content at a discount, but didn't make you wait if you didnt subscribe..
