“Liberation” and “Piazza,” the first maps from the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Content Season are now available for Xbox 360-owning CoD Elite subscribers. But rather than release a standard launch trailer full of quick cuts and complimentary language, Activision and Infinity Ward went one better by recruiting funnyman Rob Riggle, formerly of “The Daily Show,” to show us around the new maps.
But the best part is that Riggle is a real-life Lieutenant Colonel in the Marines. So he probably just barged into the Activision offices and threatened to beat up Bobby Kotick until he got the job. In my head, that’s exactly what happened.
Release details for PC, PS3, and non-Elite using Xbox 360 gamers for “Liberation” and “Piazza” will be available soon, hopefully with more Rob Riggle commentary.
