Modern Warfare 3 Collection 2 Available Now On PSN

Tina Palacios's Avatar + Posted by Tina Palacios on Jun 21, 2012 // Senior Community Manager, Infinity Ward

Hey Call of Duty fans, we have new downloadable content heading your way on PSN today! Collection 2 is the latest addition to Modern Warfare 3, and we want to give you a quick rundown of what you’ll receive: three new multiplayer maps (also usable in Survival mode), two Special Ops missions, and two Face Off maps. You can grab Collection 2 now for $14.99.

Face Off

Face Off is a new multiplayer experience that challenges even the most talented Call of Duty players. It distills all the fun and intensity of multiplayer into a new breed of 1v1, 2v2, and 3v3 close combat. Partner up with a few friends and challenge your team skills, or go head-to-head against your most challenging opponent. With the inclusion of two additional maps for free on PSN, Call of Duty veterans can get even more of this new experience.

Face Off - Getaway Environment 1Face Off – Lookout Environment 2

Getaway
Close to the shore, this place once was a tropical beach getaway boasting exotic aquariums and oversized pools, but is now a haven for ruthless run-and-gun violence. The best method of attack is to throw down a portable radar in the middle of the house, and maneuver around your opponents. Alternatively, you can kick back behind the pool and pick off heads when they pop out of doorways and windows.

Lookout
Carved into a combat-worn mountainside, this new “Face Off” map pits you against your opposition in a forward observation base littered with chokepoints and tight corridors. There are several methods of attack for you and your partner(s). Stick to high ground, whether that’s on a hill or above a base, or run guns blazing through the bases to grab that quick kill.

Erosion: Free
Make your way through Mediterranean ruins and ancient aqueducts, using leftover Roman masonry for thousand-year-old cover. As my personal favorite Face Off map, I get a kick out of leveraging the SMGs’s rapid firing rate and maneuvering as fast as I can under the archways. Taking the low ground is one way to go, or you can be the first to take the center tower and snipe opponents from above.

Aground: Free

Head to Scotland’s Orkney Islands where treacherous cliff faces, cave networks, and the rusted and ruined remains of a grounded transport ship provide for constant combat. This is definitely a map where you’ll want to pick off enemies using long range weapons — I also suggest using the Marksman perk.

Multiplayer / Survival Maps

Foundation EnvironmentSanctuary Environment 3

Sanctuary
Suspended a thousand feet in the air, you’ll find yourself battling on towering sandstone monasteries in Central Greece. There are plenty of windy paths and hidden locations in which to station yourself, or you can move quickly to flank the opposition.

Foundation
This decommissioned concrete factory is located in the heart of South Korea. After decades of constructing roads and buildings, the towering facility is now a perfectly-constructed combat zone for sniping, as well as fast-paced shootouts.

Oasis
Though once a picturesque escape for vacationers, the sprawling Hotel Oasis is now a multiplayer paradise, with multiple lanes of combat built atop an ancient fortress.

Special Ops

Iron Clad
With one player manning a tank and the other escorting it on foot, you’ll clear beaches and take cover in plane wreckage as you escape Hamburg from behind enemy lines in this all-new Special Ops Mission.

Kill Switch
Cripple a Russian carrier by detonating an electromagnetic pulse. Be the soldier on the ground, making your way to the detonation site, or play the sniper providing vital cover fire from a vantage point high above the city.

Doesn’t help much when your sign-in is screwed up. Nice job, sony. My password is no longer valid, I must change my password. Why? For what possible reason. Wonderful catch 22. The only way to change your password is to enter in your password. So how exactly do I do that?

It’s called patience. Just wait til tomorrow and you will be able to purchase it from the PS Store. Geez.
Also, the Xbox 360 does these maintenance stuff way more than the PS3, and they make you pay for the online.

Sony is probably doing these check ups to ensure we don’t run into another PSN outage again for like months. Remember what happened?

I cant fathom why all you CallofBooty people put up with the crap that you get for playing this game on the PS3.

I really think you need to shuffle things up for the franchise and its makers, and you can do this by not supporting it. Send them a message that its BS, that your not going to pay for second class treatment. BUT if you must keep playing this game with the way things are go right ahead, but its my opinion that your being mistreated.

Glad to see there are so few people responding to this post, it gives me hope that SOME of you are finally starting to feel screwed by this whole set up.

Feel free to LOL @ me if things HAVE changed, because im at the point I have stopped even checking (:

Why do people keep on buying Gun of Duty games? They’re all the same game and clones of one another. I mean, how many times can you aim crosshairs at stuff and shoot? Doesn’t that ever get boring for them? I mean, it just bores me to tears and makes me yawn and sleepy just thinking about how boring Gun of Dooty games are. Seriously, play some other games and stop being a sucker with buying the same crap game over and over and over again.

you dont have to like it, you just need to have fun and thats what call of duty provides, and i dont see anyone saying ac games are clones.
i own both battlefield 3 and cod mw3 and i have a lot more fun in call of duty mw3 with special ops and survival with a friend, thats experiences battlefield 3 doesnt deliever neither any other game does.

it’s so funny that any time PSN is down for maintenance, so many people get butthurt and say they are gonna get an xbox. Most of the people that say that are probably little kids with zero income and no way of paying for a console. You gonna ask santa claus to bring you one?
I’m really looking forward to the release of the next PS console. Hopefully it’ll be priced out of the reach of whiny little kids. It’ll be just like old times when the PS3 was launched.

@16 Every game has problems and downtime to repair the problem.The reason why COD never seems to get fixed is actually certain players faults thank to new waves of hackers and want to be hackers the servers get messed up..Just look how bad it got in MW2 now you can’t get in a game without it being hacked or unplayable..So you can thank all the people that can’t play legit..

Never be mad at the makers they fix there glitches and then a lot of hacks get released to the public then over and over again we wait for an update.

So I fire up the ol PS3 to play a little COD before bed, and what do I find? I can’t play the DLC 1 maps that I bought for $15 anymore because the new DLC has come out and won’t let me play the original DLC til I buy it…… WTF! It would have been nice if I had been told when I originally paid $15 for DLC that it would be useless to me in a month unless I wanted to keep shelling out more money to Sony. Sony, you need to make this right, or you have seen the last bit of money from this gamer.

@30 Activision may have made the game and the DLC, but Sony allows them to pull stuff like this, and Sony controls the Playstation store where it is distibuted. If Sony distributes this DLC without a disclaimer stating it is worthless when the next DLC comes out, then I am complaining to Sony.

DarkOne_PR Its not that they dont treat us with respect its just that Microsoft pays big bucks to get stuff first and have better support. Plus Sony could give 2 rats and a f&^k about a series thats going to die soon.

@sumpunk So true, I remember back in the day when only the hardcore Playstation fans had PS3s back when it was €629.99 in Ireland. I would pay it again for the PS4 no problem. At least I didn’t have to replace the machine every year, buy a new headset every 2 months when the supplied one broke, buy a wireless network afterward for it, constantly have to buy battery packs for the controller when they break, have to go back to the shop every time my machine scratches my games, pay for standard non dedicated server online every year. Actually I would gladly pay €800 for a launch PS4 tomorrow rather than €150 for a launch 361.

So I purchased the first map pack (piazza, black box, etc) then today I purchased the new map packs, but it is telling me I am “Playing with original maps only. Download all DLC content you are entitled to from the STORE in order to play on DLC maps” in red. I had no issues until I downloaded the new pack (7 downloads). Anyone know what might be my issue? Thanks for any helpful comments.

*yawn* Yep. Great to hear. I would love to go and play a rousing game of “Recycled Military Shooter” that’s released every year every year but I got original games to play.

Also, @6 Yea because it’s MUCH better at Xbox. Seriously, I own a 360. Microsoft is worse with their servers than Sony is (Not to mention, they have the nerve to make you cough up $60 a year to play online). So, if you’re going to run to Xbox because PSN was undergoing maintenance, here’s some suggestions. Play something offline, watch tv, browse the web, talk to somebody over the phone or better yet, GO OUTSIDE!
