Do you miss the olden days of FPS multiplayer when it was limited to 1v1 and 2v2? Well, Infinity Ward wants to bring those days back with Face Off Mode, the latest addition to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
Two Face Off maps, “Erosion” and “Aground,” will be made available to premium Call of Duty Elite subscribers with an Xbox 360 on May 16. Face Off maps are designed to be “smaller, super-concentrated maps specially designed to encourage strategy, skill, and teamwork like never before.” All Xbox 360 owners will be able to try out these more intimate maps as part of Modern Warfare 3’s Content Collection #2, which will be added to the Xbox Live Marketplace on May 22. Two more Face Off maps, “Getaway” and “Lookout,” will also be included in Content Collection #2.
Five more maps will be included in Content Collection #2: three multiplayer maps (“Sanctuary,” “Foundation,” and “Oasis”) and two Special Ops missions (“Kill Switch” and “Iron Clad”). “Oasis” and the two Spec Ops missions aren’t available for CoD Elite subscribers yet, so it looks like the length of time that regular Modern Warfare 3 players have to wait to play these maps is shortening.
As always, PC and PS3 players will receive all of these maps at a later date.
