Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Face Off Mode Revealed


Posted May 9, 2012 - By Stephen Johnson

Modern Warfare 3 Content Arrives For Call Of Duty Elite Subscribers

The next Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 DLC, "Content Collection 2," will feature three multiplayer maps, two special ops maps, and a new competitive mode called Face Off. 

Face Off Mode

Face Off mode in Modern Warfare 3 is designed for smaller groups of players. According to Michael Condrey, Co-Founder Sledgehammer Games, it provides, "Small maps, custom-created to have sight lines and lay outs to keep you in the action in 1 v 1 or 2 v 2."  In other words, if you have a grudge match that must be decided by a knives-only, no-perks match, this is the mode for you. (I'm looking at you, Donell Tucker.)

According to Mark Rubin, Executive Producer, Infinity Ward,"You don't spend your time running around the map looking for each other. You actually engage pretty quickly. You actually can still have the frantic fun gameplay we're used to with Call of Duty, but with one or two guys."

Content Collection 2 will be released on May 22, but 360 gamers who want to check out Face Off will be able to download two maps ("Erosion" and "Aground") for free on May 15. The Face-Off mode will be released on PC and PlayStation 3 eventually, though no date has been confirmed. Aground is set on a shipwreck off the coast of Scotland while Erosion sees you in Roman ruins while Mount Vesuvius erupts.

New Maps

Two new COD maps,"Getaway" and "Lookout" will be released on May 22 as part of the main DLC Collection 2 release. Getaway takes place in a beachside mansion in Brazil, while Lookout is set in a forward observation post in Afghanistan.

In addition, Modern Warfare 3 DLC Collection 2 will also offer three new standard multiplayer maps. Two maps, Sanctuary and Foundation, have already been released via the Call of Duty Elite service, but a new map, "Oasis", is set on a beach resort in the United Arab Emirates.

Spec-Ops Missions

Two new Spec-Ops mission modes are coming as well. "Ironclad" is set immediately after the Hamburg mission from the single player campaign, with you and your pal making it back to the landing beach after the initial assault, or dying in the attempt. It features asynchronous combat, with one player clearing obstacles while the other engages in basic infantry combat. Then there's a tank section, where one guy drives the tank and the other provided support.

The second Spec Ops mission, titled Killswitch, plays out in an all-new area set in a Russian dockyard.
