Second MW3 DLC Collection Coming This Month

By Dave Horobin, 4 years ago
If you have already played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, you may well have received a PM regarding the new achievements that have been added to the game, but with no news on what they actually related to.

That's because Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer games only released the details on what is to be included earlier today, via a new trailer, exlusive to IGN.

During the course of May, there will actually be two content updates. The first of which will be free to all Xbox 360 users arrives on May 15th, and will include two new multiplayer maps specifically made for the new "Face Off" game mode. The new mode will see all the intensity of traditional Call of Duty multiplayer, but scaled down into much smaller, closer environments to support 1 vs.1 and 2 vs. 2 combat.

Make your way through Mediterranean ruins and ancient aqueducts, using leftover Roman masonry for thousand-year-old cover in this new "Face Off" map.

Head to Scotland's Orkney Islands for the latest "Face Off" map, where treacherous cliff faces, networks of caves and the rusted and ruined remains of a grounded transport ship provide for constant combat.

Two more new maps will follow on May 22nd as part of the Collection 2 DLC. "Gateway", set in a beach side mansion in Brazil and "Lookout" which is set in an observation post in "Afghanistan".

In addition to the two new maps above, the pack will also include three multiplayer maps, two of which were already released to Call of Duty: Elite subscribers - "Sanctuary" and "Foundation" - along with one new map titled "Oasis" which is set on a beach resort in the United Arab Emirates.
It's actually in or near one of the levels from single player - the one that takes place in UAE. You can see part of that level in the background in this level. It's all new geo but it's in the same area
As if that wasn't enough, the pack will also include two new Spec Ops missions (this is where it gets interesting for achievement hunters), "Iron Clad" and "Killswitch".

Iron Clad
With one player helming a tank and the other escorting it on foot, you’ll clear beaches and take cover in plane wreckage as you escape Hamburg from behind enemy lines in this all-new Special Ops Mission.
Iron Clad

Armed with an Electromagnetic Pulse, your sniper team must neutralize a Russian carrier in this Special Ops Mission where only a bird’s eye view can keep your team in command as you breach the ship from underwater.

No price has yet been announced for the "Collection 2" DLC at the moment, but you can expect it to be 1200 MSP, the same as Collection 1.
