Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 3: Face off Mode Announced
It is easy to talk big in Call of Duty – Modern Warfare 3. Sure, if you have a large battalion of buddies covering your move, you can let it all get to your head too and start to talk, well, big. Well, if you consider yourself a master of the intricacies, tactics, and strategy of in-your-face first-person shooter action in Modern Warfare 3, the developers of the game have introduced a new mode that will test your mano a mano first-person shooter skills.
That’s right, with the new feature announced by Sledgehammer Games, Raven Software, and Infinity Ward, you can now see who can walk their talk and who is all talk. The Face Off mode lets players duke it out in one vs one and two vs two mode. What can be more awesome than this news? For starters, if the Face Off mode can be launched for PC and the PS3. Sadly, the new mode is only available on the Xbox 360 platform. Face Off mode games are available on special maps which accommodate the smaller number of participants. There are going to be two free maps for the Face Off mode–Aground and Erosion. The maps will be available on May 16 for all Xbox Live players. Two other Face Off maps, Getaway and Lookout, comes with the Content Collection 2 DLC pack which drops May 22. The DLC is not free but also comes with a couple of new missions for Special Ops as well as the Oasis multiplayer map.
As of this writing, Activision has not mentioned any future releases to support other platforms.
