Call of Duty Elite’s third Content Drop has been announced for February 21. Live gamers will be able to download Overwatch, a map set amid a construction site situated on top of a skyscraper in New York. The site’s two levels feature a near-symmetrical layout, with a central bridge enticing players with a head-on brawl and side routes for flanking attacks. The site is also apparently run by a miser as there are no safety barriers, which means that combatants can have a long and messy 70-story fall if they aren’t careful.

After shattering pre-order records, including those set by its predecessors, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is now on store shelves. Co-developed by Infinity Ward and Sledgehammer Games, Modern Warfare 3 is a continuation of 2009’s Modern Warfare 2, Black Ops being something of a side story, which sees the world edging towards World War III. While the single-player campaign continues the series’ thematic tradition of all-out war with a new Survival Mode, multiplayer is being beefed up with a revamped pointstreak system, new Strike Packages, new weapons, new equipment, and new modes, including Kill Confirmed.
