Dash Text: Saluting Modern Warfare® 3’s Season of Content, the fourth and final DLC collection deploys with five all-new Multiplayer Maps.

Players must earn their sea legs on “Off shore” and “Decommission,” where deadly oceanic oilrigs and a maze of rotting ocean liners provide the perfect setting for shoreline-based combat. Rounding out the collection is a trip to New Orleans’ war-torn French Quarter, where “Parish” pits players against one another amidst the city’s rubble.

Call of Duty: MW3 Collection 3 Now Available

Today, the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection #3 is now available for download from Xbox LIVE. The Special Ops Chaos mode, 4 new Special Ops missions, and 3 FACE OFF maps that previously were only available to Call of Duty Elite Premium Members, can now be purchased for download.

Modern Warfare® 3

Content: Collection 3: Chaos Pack
Price: 1200 Microsoft Points
Availability: Check availability in your Xbox LIVE region
Dash Text: With its third DLC Collection, Modern Warfare® 3 drops a combat-heavy care package of Special Ops Chaos mode, 4 new Special Ops missions, and 3 FACE OFF maps for the ultimate trifecta in solo and co-op gameplay. High-altitude Special Ops challenges put tactical skills to the test, with players navigating armed drones above a Russian destroyer and evading RPGs from the roof of a helicopter-swarmed hotel. Upping the ante further, FACE OFF firefights pit players head-to-head on a six-lane stretch of desert highway, at an abandoned crossroads near a New York overpass, and near the path of a violent tornado. A whole new way to play Call of Duty®, Special Ops Chaos mode delivers the ultimate in arcade mayhem. Experience truly heart-pounding and adrenaline-fueled action while competing for high scores in Resistance, Village, Underground and Dome. Chain kills together against a never-ending onslaught of enemies to increase your combo multiplier and earn performance enhancing perks. Choose your route through each map to optimize weapon pickups, attack, and escape options. Play solo, split screen or online with a friend to take out as many enemies as possible before they take you down or the clock hits zero.
