New Modern Warfare 3 Elite Maps, Now Available for Xbox Live

Call of Duty Elite maker Beachhead Studios announced that Xbox 360 owners can now get their Modern Warfare 3 Elite Maps 7 and 8. As posted on their Facebook Page, the new Sanctuary and Foundation maps will be available for Xbox 360 ELITE Premium members starting today.

Sanctuary and Foundation Elite Maps

In line with the news, the Sanctuary and Foundation maps are already posted on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s content calendar together with their description.

Elite Drop 7: Sanctuary

“Suspended in the air one thousand feet up, you’ll battle more than altitude in the towering sandstone monasteries of Central Greece. Formed over millions of years, this sanctuary’s natural rock pillars have repelled invading armies and withstood the ravages of time but now they’ll face your deployment. Test your skills – and the ancient monks’ craftsmanship – with your arsenal of SMG’s, assault rifles and shotguns. Just remember: don’t look down.”

Elite Drop 8: Foundation

“Journey into the heart of South Korea for a decommissioned concrete factory where the cement flows and bullets fly. After decades of constructing roads and building, the towering facility is now a perfectly-constructed combat zone for sniping and run-and-gun rules of engagement. Don’t stand in awe of the towering concrete crusher at the center of the factory unless you want to see your kill ratio meet the same fate.”

The release of these Elite maps is in line with Beachhead House’s promise to launch 24 drops this year.

COD’s 24 DLC Drops

Last month, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 was reported to release 24 downloadable content before the new COD title, dubbed as Black Ops 2, will hit the stores on November 2012. At present, Modern Warfare 3 already has six maps namely Liberation, Piazza, Overwatch, Black Box, Sanctuary and Foundation. In addition, MW3 also released two Special Ops Missions – the Black Ice and Negotiator – last March.

Meanwhile, there are still 16 DLCs that MW3 gamers should look forward to:

  • May: Four maps
  • June: One map, one mission and one classified
  • July: Two maps
  • August: One map, one mission and one classified
  • September: One map and one mission

However, the game’s content calendar is yet to include what drops 22 and 24 would be. On the other hand, PlayStation 3 gamers will be able to get the Black Box, Black Ice and Negotiator drops on April 12. The Sanctuary and Foundation Elite maps, meanwhile, will be available on PS3 next month.
