The latest DLC pack for Modern Warfare 3 has been detailed, bringing a new Spec Ops mission and three new Face-Off maps.
Available to subscribers of the Call of Duty: Elite service following Xbox 360 users' timed-exclusivity deal, the content was confirmed by MW3’s executive producer Mark Rubin. The Spec Ops mission is called Arctic Recon, while the new Face-Off maps are Vortex, U-Turn and Intersection. According to Rubin, these may also be the last new Face-Off maps for the game.
The official description for each of these maps can be found below.
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 reveal the beacon locations before fighting off forces on the ground to ensure the ship never leaves port.
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.
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.
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.
