Hey, remember how we always say Call of Duty DLC is overpriced? Well Activision have just launched an great big sale, offering 50% any Black Ops or Modern Warfare 3 Map Pack for the next week. That takes the price down from an exorbitant £11.49/$14.99 to a much more reasonable £5.74/$7.49.

There's something else to, a portion all all sales will go to The Call of Duty Endowment, a charity launched by Activision back in 2009 that helps veterans find jobs when their tours of duty are over.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 gets free game mode, map Collection 2 DLC released

If you're partial to Modern Warfare 3's tight arena tussles then you might be interested in investigating the new game mode, Face off. It allows for quick, violent 1 v 1, 2 v 2 and 3 v 3 contests on "smaller, super-concentrated multiplayer maps." Two of these new maps have been released for free and are playable right now.

This free taste of Face Off could help to move copies of the newly released Collection 2 DLC, which comes with two more Face Off maps, a standard multiplayer arena set in a hotel poised on top of an ancient fortress (why not?), and two co-op spec ops missions.

Infinity Ward have released more footage of the new Face Off mode that'll be added in content collection 2. Sadly, it doesn't have Nic Cage and John Travolta swapping faces and trying to out-ham each other to death in tribute to John Woo's 1997 flick, it's a fast 1v1/2v2 mode set in a series of tight arenas.

It looks perfect for a bit of split screen on the consoles, but the more focused approach could also fix that feeling of constantly being caught with your pants down on those busier CoD maps. Content collection 2 will arrive imminently on the Xbox, but will arrive quite a bit late on PC. There's not solid date just yet. The pack will also contain three multiplayer maps, two co-op spec ops maps and two new Face Off arenas.

The first content collection for Modern Warfare 3 has just recently landed on PC, adding new multiplayer maps and a couple of spec ops missions. The second pack will do the same, but also introduce a new 1 vs 1/2 vs 2 mode called Face Off. According to the trailer above, the first two Face Off maps will be released for free to give everyone a taste of how it plays. Two more will then be added in the full content pack later. All of the dates refer to the Xbox version, however. The last DLC pack took more than a month to reach the PC. Expect similar delays again for content pack 2.
