When are the new maps supposed to be made available to the general public?  I didn't realize that they are first exclusive to Elite membership holders, assuming I could just pay space bucks for the maps, but they weren't available to be just yet.   icon_confused


I am wondering that as well,Xbox has exclusiveness for a month,but does that mean within that time the non-elite people will get the maps before Elite PC and PS3 people?...sounds a bit off for the PC and PS3 Elite people if they do

If I have to wait a month then it works to their detriment because by then I won't be interested anymore.  The point would be for me to play the new maps, when they're new, with friends.  If I'm not able to, then there's little reason to pick them up a month down the road.

The maps are available to non-elite holders when the map packs are done.  Map packs are generally 4 maps.  Part of the benefits of Elite are that we get the maps as they come out instead of waiting for packs.  The pack will be in March.

Elite members get everything included in cost AND get it all as soon as it is available.

CoD is definitely a cash cow, but I'm not sure how you can say that giving people early access to something is milking it.  They could have just made elite holders wait until March and then get them, but we get it early.  That's a good thing.

(plus you already sold the game, so any comments from you after that feel like trolling.  You wouldn't troll me now would ya Ken?  ninja)

Wow, just read from an apparently frustrated 402 that they are pushing a hotfix tonight to reduce fire rate of all akimbo secondaries by 50%. Apparently he was getting spammed hard by people wanting the fmg9s fixed and so... They're going to do that to all of them???

waiting for a video of someone doing the Han Solo run from the 1st (4th) movie - you know that one where he is running down the hall chasing a few stormtroopers and then being chased in the next frame. Tongue

Fumble and I are playing this right now.  It's a lot like Halo's infected, so of course it's a lot of fun.

It does suck, though, that if you're the last survivor, you get the losing side's match bonus.

new map on the 21st February



Quote
Today, Activision has announced that the next update will arrive on February 21st. Overwatch is the name of the new map that will be available to Call of Duty Elite members, and it takes place high above New York City.


EDIT:

Just found this,not sure if any of you have seen it but it has the content for March as well
http://www.callofduty.com/contentcalendar

1 new map(Black Box)and 2 Special Ops Missions(Black Ice and Negotiator)



April-2maps
May-Map,Mission and 'classified'
June-Map,Mission and 'classified'
July- 2 maps
August-Map,Mission and 'Classified'
September-Map and Mission


I hope some of those classified turn out to be MP maps,the more the better...although adding up at the end of September would have 12 new MP maps altogether,including January's and February's

EDIT 2:Actually it has a small flag symbol next to the classified ones

Zzz... Game has lost most of its appeal to me. I look to put more of my time into black ops for my cod fix. This games lag compensation just sucks the fun out of it for me in what seems like a majority of matches. Even with all the dlc being prepaid I just don't feel any desire to download the content and play. Seems like this cod has had the shortest "honeymoon" phase for me by far.

Could that be why I got a message saying I was promoted to "Commander" when I hadn't Prestiged up from level 80 after my first Prestige? It just came out of the blue, just told me that I had been promoted, but no change in my level or new titles or badges.

Yup, multiple levels all over the map. It's like Summit but larger with more routes. Lots of fun.

That's been the case with Call of Duty games for at least the past couple iterations - XBox users get DLC first.

Plus, console specific goodies/perks have been the rage for a while now.  PS3 users got the Battlefield 3 DLC first, for instance.

MAYDAY! Air Force One is down. On March 20, start the firefight in “Black Box” along with three more multiplayer maps and, for the first time ever, two Special Ops Missions. Brace yourself for the biggest DLC collection in Call of Duty history, available first on Xbox LIVE!


EDIT:
Okay just to be clear about this,this includes the 3 maps already released plus Black Box Mulitplayer map and 2 spec ops misisons,this obviously is for the Non Elite Xbox people(sorry PS3 Elites,you really got screwed IMO,seen as though the Xbox non elites get the content before the PS3 elites)


for Elite peeps,you will get the new map and spec op modes on 13th March

I've been meaning to ask this:  Does everyone experience the music pauses when going to the Live menu?  I can't start a game for half a minute or so, presumably while something loads in the background, and the whole time the sound hiccups like crazy.  It's not a big deal, and I can live with it, but I wanted to make sure at least some others are experiencing it.

Mine sits and hiccups and churns until I press the guide button and then it usually continues to the menu. Read somewhere that it was due to the theater being enabled.

Quote
If you are a Call of Duty Elite Premium Member, your March content is now available. The below three drops are now available exclusively for Xbox 360 Call of Duty Elite Premium Members only.   

Elite Drop 4: Black Box
Battle beside a downed Air Force One in "Black Box." Multi-level homes overlook the neighboring streets, creating a deadly kill zone for players on the ground. With clear sight lines from house to house, however, snipers are far from safe, with counter-sniping an ever-present threat to their dominance. Those that prefer close-quarters combat can succeed in the tight confines of the crashed airplane or in hunting down enemies posted up within any of the surrounding homes

Elite Drop 5: Black Ice
Shred ice from aboard your snowmobile as you infiltrate a diamond mine in the Special Ops mission, "Black Ice." Melt more than snow when you plant high-grade explosives to shut the mine down forever. This marks the first time Special Ops has been made downloadable online in franchise history.

Elite Drop 6: Negotiator
Cash in all your karma as you head to India for high-stakes hostage extraction in "Negotiator," an all-new Special Ops mission in which you’ll breach-and-clear rooms and navigate surface streets to secure the safety of your VIPs. This marks the first time Special Ops has been made downloadable online in franchise history

well the new MP map is alright,nothing special...the last thing i want though is that whiney voiced prick down my ear all through the map(the same voice from the intro)

there was an update also,so when you join LIVE,it still stutters for two minutes,but now it briefly goes to the intro screen and the sound stutters and makes you think you need to restart your xbox...but you don't,whatever the update did,it just made things worse...if it was indeed to fix that(probably not)

oh and also when you choose to play the ELITE maps,its a random TDM,Kill Confirmed or Domination match...you can't just say like play TDM,until i guess it makes its way to the standard rotation...annoying

Agreed. There should be an Elite selection to play the new maps on TDM only; they had this on the previous new map releases, seems odd to not have it for this release. Let's see what they do for next week when all the new maps are available to all.

'Collection 1' is now up on Xbox Live for 1200 MSP...4 maps and 2 Spec Op's maps

(wow,didn't we ELITE have that last map and the spec ops missions for long saywhat LOL)

FWIW though past COD titles have had 4 MP maps for 1200 points,so it looks like it's actually a better deal than usual for the non-elites

So far I like the new maps, although I'd like to play just TDM on them, not the rotation of game modes.

Are the new maps much better than the ones that shipped with the game? I hated the orginal maps, they were too maze-y.
