On February 21st, the third Content Drop in Modern Warfare 3’s Content Season becomes available to COD Elite Premium Members on Xbox Live.
The February Content drop consists of a single map: Overwatch
Shots break out on a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper. 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 boundaries surrounding the perimeter leaves nothing to prevent you from falling far to the ground below.
Many Cod veterans will notice Overwatch bears a similarity to the popular Modern Warfare 2 level Highrise. Call of Duty has remade levels in the past so this is nothing new (see Cliffside and Hazard from Treyarch). This would not necessarily be a bad thing either since Highrise was a bit of a fan favorite. From early indications Overwatch looks to be a more balanced map then the two previous Content Drops giving it the opportunity to be enjoyed by all weapon classes.
