Modern Warfare 3 'Overwatch' map now available on PS3

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3  - 1099040

The third Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Elite drop, Overwatch, has been released for PlayStation 3 and is now available for PS3 owners to download.  If you are a paid Call of Duty Elite member on PS3, you can now install the third drop through the in-game "store" option in the multiplayer menu.

Released over a month ago for Xbox 360, the Overwatch map drops you into a construction site atop a New York City Skyscraper.

"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," Activision said of the new map.

Activision is handling Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's DLC on an exclusivity basis with the add-on content arriving first on Xbox 360.  It's a pretty confusing process that sees paid Elite members getting access to the DLC first on the Xbox 360, followed by all Xbox 360 members, before it eventually makes its way over the PS3.

Since the game's release in November we've already had 6 DLC drops, with Content Collection #1 wrapping them all together in one bundle (it has already been released for Xbox 360).

To keep track of the Modern Warfare 3 DLC check out the Content Calendar that Activision has provided.
