Modern Warfare 3 'Overwatch' map coming to Xbox 360 February 21st


Activision is gearing up for the third DLC drop for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 later this month.  Today, it was announced that the "Overwatch" map will be made available to Xbox 360 owners with a premium Call of Duty Elite membership on February 21st.

"Overwatch drops you into a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper," Activision said of the new map. "The battle takes place along two levels in a near symmetrical layout, with the central bridge and side routes open to attack from multiple angles. Watch your every step, as a lack of safety barriers surrounding the perimeter leaves nothing between you and a 70 story fall to the ground below."

Modern Warfare 3 DLC is a timed exclusive for Xbox 360 users, meaning PS3 and PC gamers will have to wait at least another month before they get this high-rise, high-risk map.  The first two DLC drops - the "Liberation" and "Piazza" maps - landed on Xbox 360 in January and will finally make their PS3 debut at the end of this month on February 28th.

Activision plans to release at least 20 pieces of MW3 DLC in the form of multiplayer maps and special ops missions.  Next month Activision has plans to release the "Black Box" map, "Black Ice" special ops mission, and the "Negotiator" special ops mission.  You can track all upcoming Modern Warfare 3 DLC on the Call of Duty content calendar.
