Well, the holidays are over and I’m still nowhere near finishing Skyrim. I did finally manage to get through the first Company of Heroes game, so that’s one down, eight to go. I was wondering how to start the year off when Activision reminded me about that Call of Duty Elite premium thingy a paid a fortune for.
When I purchased my premium membership pass for Activision’s Call of Duty Elite I questioned why I’d bothered. You see I’m not the best CoD player out there; sure I have my moments, but I not a stats hungry virtual tactician or anything like that. I hardly have the time to play the bloody game least have the time to study a load of old guff in the hope that it’ll gain me a positive kill/death ratio.
I did however, quite like the idea of effectively paying up front for the Modern Warfare 3 DLC, and getting it early to boot.
Activision has just released the first two multiplayer maps as part of its Modern Warfare 3 Content Season for Call of Duty Elite. This begins nine months of downloadable content available free of charge to Call of Duty Elite premium members.
Here is what Activision had to say about the two maps:
Call of Duty Elite Drop 1: Liberation, a militarized Central Park in the heart of NYC, featuring a vast landscape ripe for long-range sniper and LMG kills. Mounted turrets on opposing ends of the map offer overwhelming firepower to anyone brave enough to man them. Elite Drop 2: Piazza, set in an idyllic seaside village, Italian getaway gone rogue, where blind corners and a complex network of branching pathways pose danger at every turn. Visceral close-quarters combat dominates in Piazza, and attacks from above and below are an ever-constant threat.
