The third helping of Activision's "Content Drop" for Call of Duty Elite's Modern Warfare 3 Content Season is finally here. A brand new map, Overwatch, is now available for all Premium Members on Xbox Live.
Overwatch takes place in the midst of a construction site, a work in progress New York City skyscraper. Unlike most maps, which provide plenty of terrain to run across, and a variety of structures to take cover in or gather loot from, there's nowhere to run and hide here.
