Three new content drops are coming to premium Call of Duty ELITE members on Xbox 360 next Tuesday, August 7. Special Delivery and Light ‘ Em Up expand upon the awesome list of Special Ops missions, while the new Special Ops Chaos Mode challenges players to an all-out cooperative frenzy!
Activision has detailed and dated Content Collection 3: Chaos Pack and Content Collection 4: Final Assault for Modern Warfare 3.
Both packs will hit Xbox 360 first, with Collection 3 hitting August 9 and Collection 4 due September 6, priced at 1200 Microsoft Points ($14.99) each. The dates for Elite subscribers were not confirmed. PlayStation 3 and PC players will have to wait around a month after these dates to get their hands on the content, due to the exclusivity deal.
The packs will include:
- Collection 3: Chaos Pack offers extensive solo and co-op gameplay for the Special Ops enthusiast, featuring four brand new Special Ops Missions – Vertigo, Arctic Recon, Light ‘Em Up and Special Delivery – and Face Off maps – Vortex, U-Turn and Intersection. Introducing a new way to play Call of Duty, Special Ops Chaos Mode delivers a frenetic form of combat that demands players to outlast waves of enemies, while chaining kills on maps littered in power-ups to achieve the highest possible score on fan-favorite multiplayer maps Resistance, Village, Underground and Dome.
- 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 oil rigs 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.
Infinity Ward also revealed that the free DLC map Terminal will be completely lag-free when it launches on PlayStation 3 for Call of Duty: Elite subscribers on August 16, 2012- in just a few short weeks.
