Finally the calendar has been updated:
Getaway and Lookout counted as a single piece of DLC when I downloaded them. It showed pieces 9-12, with Getaway and Lookout listed together, and that's a good thing.
Call of Duty preview video has all the info. IGN's video.
May 16th will see all Xbox players getting a new game mode, with special maps tailored specifically for the mode, called Face Off:
It's a one-on-one or two-on-two deathmatch mode featuring four brand new maps custom built for more intimate combat.Apparently it'll be TDM or Kill Confirmed, 1v1 or 2v2.
The 2 maps free to everyone are called Aground and Erosion. The same day Xbox players will get May's DLC which will consist of the multiplayer map Oasis, 2 additional Face-off maps called Getaway and Lookout, and the 2 spec ops missions whose achievements were leaked a few weeks back, Iron Clad and Kill Switch.
May 15th Elite Premium gets
- Getaway (Face Off map)
- Lookout (Face Off map)
- Oasis (multiplayer map)
- Kill Switch (spec-ops mission)
- Iron Clad (spec-ops mission)
2 free Face Off maps to everyone on Xbox May 16th
And then on May 22nd all of that premium content as well as Foundation and Sanctuary will be packaged as Collection 2 and made available for general purchase.
Here are some screenshots from the IGN vid of the various pieces:
(in the IGN video he says you can get outside of the map, but it's covered in mines; very cool)
Normally Spec Ops missions are segments of the campaign that are given different objectives. Kill Switch doesn't seem to be anywhere in MW3's campaign. Perhaps they were considering and developing another campaign level but ended up scrapping it, and now they're putting that work to use in this mission.
This mission is a segment cut out of the campaign mission Goalpost, and as usual it's run the opposite direction as the campaign was.
Achievement list for Iron Clad and Kill Switch:
Also, prestiges 16-20 will be added May 15th.
