Spec Ops Chaos mode – Activision and co. asks “How long can you survive?”

Spec Ops Chaos Mode is more of an arcade mode than any other mode in Modern Warfare 3. Your objective is to rack up the highest score, with the highest multipliers. The bad news? Well, you’re going to go up against many enemies at once. In some cases, you’ll have to face other types of enemies. The mode uses standard maps from Modern Warfare 3: Village, Underground, Resistance, and Dome. Are you ready for chaos?

New Modern Warfare 3 Content Collections announced

It has been a while since Activision has released news to just about everyone. Over the last 2 months, there has been nothing but leaks with regarding to the new maps that come out to Call of Duty Elite subscribers. All Activision has done was confirm them left and right on Twitter, but no video or actual news to release to all of us. An educated guess would be that Activision got tired of revealing new maps, and just leave big announcements exclusively to those Content Collections, rather than Content Drops.

Just to keep you up to date as to what Content Drops have been released to Xbox Live members with a Call of Duty Elite subscription since June, they are:

June:
Vortex (Face Off)
U-Turn (Face Off)
Intersection (Face Off)
Arctic Recon (Spec Ops)

July:
Decommission (Face Off)
Off Shore (Face Off)
Vertigo (Spec Ops)

So far, PlayStation 3 owners have been able to enjoy June’s Content Drops. July’s Content Drops will be available alongside MW2′s Terminal which will drop for free. PS3 owners will enjoy July’s drops and MW2′s Terminal on August 16th.

You’re probably wondering what new Content Collections are on the horizon by now, eh? Well, let’s get down to business, then!

Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection 3

MW3 Content Collection 3: Available August 9th
Face Off Maps: Intersection, U-turn, Vortex
Spec Ops Missions: Arctic Recon, Vertigo, Light ‘em Up, and Special Delivery

Activision also revealed a new game mode shipping along with this Content Collection. Introducing Spec Ops Chaos Mode. Activision describes it this way:

High-altitude Special Ops challenges put tactical skills to the test, with players navigating armed drones above a Russian destroyer and evading RPGs from the roof of a helicopter-swarmed hotel. Upping the ante further, FACE OFF firefights pit players head-to-head on a six-lane stretch of desert highway, at an abandoned crossroads near a New York overpass, and near the path of a violent tornado.

A whole new way to play Call of Duty, Special Ops Chaos mode delivers the ultimate in arcade mayhem. Experience truly heart-pounding and adrenaline-fueled action while competing for high scores in Resistance, Village, Underground and Dome. Chain kills t ogether against a never-ending onslaught of enemies to increase your combo multiplier and earn performance enhancing perks. Choose your route through each map to optimize weapon pickups, attack, and escape options. Play solo, split screen or online with a friend to take out as many enemies as possible before they take you down or the clock hits zero.”

The final act of the Call of Duty: MW3 Content Season, Collection #4: Final Assault, is tailored toward hardcore multiplayer fans, and features five all-new multiplayer maps. “Gulch” sends combatants into a forgotten mining town with mine shafts and equipment sheds for cover. In “Boardwalk,” fun in the sun on the Jersey Shore means facing enemies on the beach. “Offshore” and “Decommission” will test players’ sea legs on deadly oceanic oilrigs and among a maze of rotting ocean liners respectively. Rounding out the collection is a trip to the French Quarter in a war-torn New Orleans, where “Parish” pits players against one another amidst the city’s rubble.

MW2′s Terminal coming to Modern Warfare 3 for free

When Face Off was released on Xbox 360, someone found Terminal in MW3 files alongside Oasis, Lookout, Aground, etc. The Executive Producer at Infinity Ward went on the record with Twitter users about Terminal. Comment after comment, they continue to tease MW3 players about Terminal. Infinity Ward was aiming for a June release for Terminal, and will be updated a little bit here and there. Users have made tweaks so that they can freely play in a Terminal match within’ Modern Warfare 3. iHCJames managed to get into a private match of MW2′s Terminal. It clearly shows Terminal in action on Modern Warfare 3. In any case, you can take a first look into Terminal’s entry into Modern Warfare 3!

What do you think so far? Is there any other map that you’d like deployed on Modern Warfare 3? COD4′s Crossfire please!

Activision shows off MW3′s Content Collection 2

In the new video, Activision put a lot of emphasis on the new Face Off mode, and showed off the Face Off maps, as well.

Introducing Modern Warfare 3 Face Off mode

The developers of Modern Warfare 3 revealed the new Content Collection 2, and new DLC details. Along with the announcement, Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games let it slip that they’re introducing a new mode called Face Off. Since then, there was not enough information about the mode other than the fact that the mode will release around May 15th, and will come with two new maps. They also said the mode would be comprised of small team games.

In a separate trailer released by Activision, the developers of MW3 went into detail about what Face Off entails. Face Off is a game mode that pits one or two players against one or two players. The Face Off mode itself will be released on May 16th on Xbox Live first, and as usual, the other platforms follow suit. The two maps that release alongside Face Off are Aground and Erosion. And then, two more maps will be released on May 22nd. Anyhow, enjoy the new trailer…

5th MW3 DLC goes to Xbox Live

Last month was a crazy month for both developers of MW3, and MW3 fans alike. In April, non-Call of Duty Elite subscribers on PlayStation 3 were treated to the release of MW3 Content Collection 1 on PlayStation Store. Shortly thereafter, one of the developers behind Modern Warfare 3 released a duo of maps called Sanctuary and Foundation. This month, developers of MW3 released a lot of information about the next DLC to release on Xbox Live first. On May 15th, those who have a Call of Duty Elite subscription will be able to download Content Collection 2. Shortly thereafter, it will be released on the full scale Xbox Live service on May 22nd. It will release shortly afterwards on other platforms.

There will be a new mode, and it’s called “Face Off.” This mode is comprised of small-team games. With the announcement, the developers announced that there’ll be 2 free maps that is going to be released to everybody. Not just you, not just him, not just I, EVERYONE. It does not require a Call of Duty Elite subscription to get these free maps. It’s free. That means, you do not have to pay at all! The two free maps are called Aground and Erosion, they both release on May 15th.

So, let’s recap: Content Collection 2 will include:

3 Multiplayer maps: Sanctuary, Foundation, and Oasis
2 Spec Ops missions: Killswitch, and Iron Clad
2 Face Off maps: Lookout, and Getaway

Infinity Ward, and Sledgehammer Games talk about the features, the maps themselves, and the release dates in this exclusive trailer released to IGN.com.

What about us PC owners?
As usual, you guys are going to have to wait. Although there is some good news for you PC owners. You see, the first Content Collection was released to Steam and it will cost you $14.99. [source] So, at roughly 15 dollars, you get the following six maps:

That’s not all… You guys got an update to your playlist. You guys will now be treated to a community playlist that features Infected, and FFA Gunplay. A few months ago, IW added 11 to 15 prestiges to the PC version of MW3. The new update also brings along 16 to 20 prestiges for you PC players. [source]

And, what about us PS3 owners?

4th MW3 DLC rushes to Xbox Live

Beachhead Studios released the third month’s worth of Call of Duty Elite drops. Shortly thereafter, Modern Warfare 3′s biggest map pack was released to Xbox Live, and pretty soon to PS3. The map pack was designed to accommodate the larger scale Call of Duty community that didn’t buy or aren’t buying into the Call of Duty Elite program. The MW3 Content Collection or MW3 Map Pack includes 6 maps in all; 4 multiplayer maps, and 2 Spec Ops maps. They are: Liberation, Piazza, Overwatch, Black Box, Black Ice, and Negotiator. Few days ago, without warning, someone at Activision or Beachhead Studios released two trailers for two maps that has recently been released to Xbox Live members with a Call of Duty Elite subscription. I was watching the Call of Duty Facebook page for the trailers, but I found out the hard way this afternoon that the trailers did in fact release to Youtube. I think this has more to do with Robert Bowling leaving Infinity Ward, because the trailers below are from a different channel.

The first map is Foundation. It takes place on an abandoned concrete factory stationed in South Korea. It has almost everything; sniping spots, run n’ gun, long distance shots, steep downhill and uphill battles.

The second map is Sanctuary. It takes place in a religious greek monastery up hi-rise in central Greece. You will battle in cliffs, bridges, religious rooms that are either churches, eating rooms, and Sanctuaries. Monks of Greece have come across this sanctuary, and some have lived here!

As always, PS3 and PC gamers are going to have to wait for these maps to be released. ‘Till next time!
