CoD Elite DLC incoming

More multiplayer mayhem

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.

Liberation: nice trees!

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.
