Modern Warfare 3’s next content drop: Overwatch

Continuing the downloadable fiesta that is Modern Warfare 3‘s Content Season for Call of Duty Elite, a name which gets longer and longer every time we write it, is the next content drop called Overwatch.

Overwatch, which is reminiscent of Modern Warfare 2‘s Highrise for those of you who remember it, will drop you into a two-leveled construction site atop a New York City skyscraper. The map layout is “near symmetrical” with a center bridge and numerous side routes available for open attacks and flanking strategies. And just like Highrise, there are no fences keeping you from falling and splatting yourself on the ground.

Catch some shots of the map in the gallery here.

Overwatch will, as always, be available for Xbox 360 owners and Call of Duty Elite members first, on February 21st, followed by PS3 and PC releases later on.

In addition, the press release gave a small insight into next month’s content drop, which will include a new multiplayer map called Black Box and two new Spec Ops missions going by the names Black Ice and Negotiator. We already new this, but confirmation is always satisfying.
