Sure, Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer maps are great and all, but where's one to go for the frustrating choice between “bullseyed by distant snipers” or “70-storey drop”? Why, you'd have to launch MW2 and wait for Highrise to come up! Thank goodness Activision's next Elite Content Drop seeks to one-up that old favorite with the new Overwatch map.

While the setting's satisfyingly familiar, Overwatch mixes up the play styles with layered construction blocks and wide-open walkways breaking up the central combat area. Due for release on Feb 21, the map'll be first-up for Elite subscribers, with PS3 and PC releases to follow. The company has also teased further Content Drops, with March's releases including another new map and bonus Special Features missions.

    The fact that Activision is just ignoring PS3 users, and those that complain, had got a pretty sour taste in my mouth, I paid for nothing, pretty much lost interest. I think their plan with the delayed map packs is to keep hype up for as long as possible, but as a PS3 user I just feel regret.

    ...regret towards Activision, not Sony, and some borderline hatred towards Microsoft (stop giving these people money!)

    You know, since I didn't purchase the Elite membership, I've pretty much lost interest in buying any of the maps due to the long wait times. Warefare DLC is hype based, and when you make people wait too long for said DLC people don't tend to buy into them as much. Of course this is what I've noticed with all my friends here in college anyway.

    Does anyone know if/when it'll be released to non-Elite subscribers? I like the game but I don't really want to pay a yearly sub for a bunch of maps when I only want to buy a couple of them.

    Oh wow, release on feb 21. Ps3 users will only just get the first drop on the 28th... They're mocking us.

    I'm upset that they decided to change the name of the map Morning Wood to Black Box. Must be a large map.

    hell yes
