Beachhead Studios recently released Content Collection 1 on Xbox Live. Shortly thereafter, Activision, and Sledgehammer Games held an event to promote Call of Duty: MW3′s Content Collection 1. The event featured NFL football players and ahem, Major Nelson was on hand to help ask NFL players questions about what they thought about MW3 and Content Collection in general. The video was published on Inside Xbox.
At Activision’s event in Los Angeles, Xbox Live’s Major Nelson interviewed Ahmad Bradshaw, a New York Giants player. NY Giants won the Super Bowl this year, so it’s a pretty big deal what he says. Anyway, let’s cut to the chase, shall we?
You can get the 6 maps from Xbox Live now. PS3 and PC gamers are going to have to wait for this collection to really enjoy it.
Activision & Beachhead Studios kicked off the Content Season in January. The first Content Drops were “Liberation” and “Piazza.” In February, the second Content Drop called “Overwatch” was released. A week ago, a trio of maps were released. They are called “Black Box,” a Multiplayer map, and two Spec Ops maps “Black Ice,” and “Negotiator.” All of these Content Drops so far have been released to Call of Duty Elite members, but what about those who don’t have a Call of Duty Elite subscription? Well, Activision is answering that question with a map pack of sorts.
On March 20th, which should be by the time you read this. You can purchase the Content Collection 1 on Xbox Live, and it’s being hailed as the “biggest Content Pack in Call of Duty history.” As you recall, COD4′s Variety Pack featured 4 maps, while most of MW2′s map packs had 5 maps each. Both MW2 map packs featured at least 2 re-made maps. This Content Collection of maps is full of fresh content.
Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games, and Raven Software talked about the Content Collection in their behind-the-scenes look at the package.
Shortly thereafter, Activision released a video showing off the contents of MW3 Collection 1. Enjoy!
Sorry, PlayStation 3 and PC gamers you’re going to have to wait a while for this content to arrive to your device.
Normally I don’t post “leaked” news, but I’m going to make this the exception. A lot of leaks are usually wrong. In the next few days, and over the next week, we’re going to see a lot of leaks, and information related to Modern Warfare 3.
The current story circulating the internet is that someone allegedly broke into the Call of Duty XP event in Los Angeles that will take place on September 2nd and 3rd. This youtuber access the Xbox 360 consoles that will be used at the CODXP event. To see the video, check this video:
If you couldn’t see most of it, it’s because the trailer moved a lil’ to fast, so you can’t really digest information. So, I happened to come across images, and I have snapped it to bring you the low-down of what has been revealed:
The first thing that you’ll notice from the get-go is the maximum size of the mutiplayer map called “Paris” – I’m not sure if this is limited to just the maps themselves, or the modes themselves. Either way, the maximum Team Deathmatch can hold 32 players. Just so that we’re clear, you can’t really make out the whole image but you can see “Team Deathmatch AND bomb…” that last part is up for speculation.
However, the next image confirms that it is, indeed Team Deathmatch:
Looks like the multiplayer map takes place in Paris, we’ve seen Paris before in the previous Spec Ops Trailer. Finally, the last image shows all maps are swapped into verticle view. This is the list that’s been leaked so far:
I said “so far..” because Black Ops had 14 maps, and MW2 had 16. It’s possible that more maps may appear at the CODXP event. And because developers at Infinity Ward, and Raven Software are constantly changing the multiplayer aspects of MW3, who knows? Maybe these maps aren’t even final, and maybe they’ll be cut before release or add more maps to the foray?
Stay tuned for more information as we lead into Call of Duty XP, and find more information at CODXP. See you then.
