PlayStation 3 Gamers Get Modern Warfare 3 Content On July 19‏

Share And Comment

Forever in second place behind Xbox when it comes to downloadable content, PlayStation Elite subscribers can look forward to the arrival of some brand spanking new Modern Warfare 3 content drops on July 19. The content released will include three new Face-Off maps for the pint-sized mode and a Special Ops mission to indulge those tactics in. This will bring the total amount of Face-Off maps released to seven and Special-Ops Missions to five.


To make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into, even though we have all already jumped onto YouTube to check the maps out or on our friends Xbox, here is a description of all the content.

Special Ops mission:

  • Arctic Recon – Requiring surgical precision by air, land, and sea, this new Special Ops mission tasks you with destroying a Russian battleship by planting beacons for an air strike. Take control of a recon helicopter to show the beacon locations before fighting off forces on the ground to make sure the ship never leaves port.

Face-Off Maps:

  • Vortex – No storm shelter can keep you safe in “Vortex,” the all-new “Face Off” map that places you just outside the danger zone of a devastating tornado.
  • U-Turn – A bombed-out, gridlocked highway provides a perfect backdrop for combatants on this all-new “face Off” map, where oil fields burn black high above six-lanes’ worth of abandoned cars, buses and paths for attack.
  • Intersection – A New York bridge overpass provides the backdrop for this all-new “Face Off” map in which an ultra-condensed 2-block battle zone allows players to fight on the first and second floors of surrounding apartments and bombed-out bodegas.

If you are a fan of the Face-Off game mode then this months content is right up your street, others might be disappointed and would rather full multiplayer maps to battle it out on, but hey, that’s the gamble with Elite. There are still nine more content drops to land for PlayStation 3, with the July content recently being announced for Xbox Elite subscribers. Will Infinity Ward finish it off with a bang I wonder? If you are looking forward to the rest of the Content Calender, let us know in the comment section below!

When not fighting crime, I dabble in the art of online journalism. Alright, maybe it's not as exciting as headbutting everyday felons like a modern Bruce Wayne, but I need something that doesn't involve bludgeoning something. Get my kicks playing on a fat 80gb PS3, really need an upgrade......and a shave.
