On February 28, Playstation 3 gamers subscribed to Call of Duty Elite will get a taste of the DLC that Xbox 360 Elite members have been swimming in for the last week. Well, maybe not swimming. There’s only two Modern Warfare 3 maps, Liberation and Piazza, so maybe splashing is a little more accurate.
At this point, it is still unknown when the general public and PC will have access to the DLC. It could be awhile – maybe months. While you wait, we have screenshots below for you to ogle.
Developer: Infinity Ward/Sledgehammer Games
Genre: First-Person Shooter
Players: Single, Online Multiplayer
Release Date: Nov. 8, 2011
Rated: M – Mature
November, a month full of gratitude, turkey, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Yes, it has already been a year since Black Ops was released and Activision, Infinity Ward, and Sledgehammer Games have given us the conclusion to the Modern Warfare series in its current form. What can you expect from a series that prides itself on the “don’t fix it, if it ain’t broke” mantra? Big explosions, buildings collapsing, riding shotgun in vehicles, more big explosions, AC-130s, Makarov, Soap, Price, and did I mention arguably the best first-person shooter multiplayer experience still? Business as usual. But is Modern Warfare 3 the best of the season or even in its own series?
The answer to the latter part of that question is no. Call of Duty 4 will always remain the best of the entire Call of Duty franchise. It blended superb campaign and multiplayer near flawlessly. There is a reason that I’ve spent less and less time with each iteration of Call of Duty since the original Modern Warfare. Business as usual means not as much innovation. We’ve come to expect and even accept that. In looking back at my Black Ops review last year, a couple of things jumped out at me.
Yet another trailer released for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Feast your eyes on the explosions and violence across the world. It has all the makings of the blockbuster hit and there are some great scenes in the clip, but how much of that is actual gameplay? Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are sure making a play for your wallets. Which way are you going? Personally, I’m having fun with Gears of War 3 still…
