Release dates for final Modern Warfare 3 content, 'Chaos Pack' and 'Final Assault', announced
After about a year of DLC and add-on content, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Season of Content is coming to a conclusion. Activision announced the last two Content Collections - Collection #3: Chaos Pack and Collection #4: Final Assault - which are set to release on the Xbox 360 on August 9 and September 6, 2012 respectively.
The Call of Duty: MW3 Collection #3: Chaos Pack (there we are again with those double colons) will introduce a brand new Special Ops Chaos Mode, three new Face Off maps (Vortex, U-Turn and Intersection), and four new Special Ops Missions (Vertigo, Arctic Recon, Light 'Em Up and Special Delivery). The Special Chaos Mode will "deliver 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."
Wrapping up the Season of Content will be Call of Duty: MW3 Collection #4: Final Assault which is tailored toward "hardcore multiplayer fans". As such, it will feature five new multiplayer maps. Below is a description for the five new 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 oilrigs 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.
Falling in line with Activision's Xbox 360 exclusivity deal, both Collection #3: Chaos Pack and Collection #4: Final Assault will release first on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 1,200 Microsoft Points, or $14.99.
Shortly after, they will be released on PS3 and PC. The DLC included int he Collections will be made available to Premium Elite members at an earlier date; for the current release dates for Premium Elite Members check out the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Content Calendar.
And that concludes the year-long Season of Content. This should hold you over until the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
