MP1st - Robert Bowling has released the first image of Modern Warfare 3's DLC coming in January.
Dude, that map actually looks really cool. Might sound silly, but the fall setting looks really nice. Lets just hope the design is a little... different than current MW3 maps.
IMHO the maps in MW3 were poorly designed, i think CoD4 and MW2 did it right, for the most part (excluding spawn points).
In my opinion, MW3 has the poorest map design in the whole cod series including Treyarch's games.
"(excluding spawn points). " you say that almost like the spawn points in MW3 are better. MW3 has the worst spawn points of them all. I would rather the spawns worked as they did in Cod4, yes it sucked if your team was shit, but thats the whole point, you learned how to work as a team to suppress and ultimately destroy the othr team. now everyone is a loan wolf running and spraying then getting killed by the guy they just prayed because he just spawned two feet behind him. worst spawn system in any game in my opinion. As for the new maps... zero interest. I have no faith in IW/SH. they made 16 of the worst maps in any Cod game, what are the odds they will get anymore right? And no doubt they are going to be 1200 points and there will be like 3 or 4 of them. Na I will pass.
I have to agree. Everytime we play we complain about the poor map design and spawning. The problem with cod is this, they make every map available for every game type. How does S&D on dome make sense? They need to take a page from Battle field and adjust the maps to the game type and avoid being lazy.
Raven Software either developed the maps that shipped or the dlc maps
Cod maps are more for s&d mode, you know where enemy team spawned and you have to work like a team to rush and kill your enemy/plant bomb.. all other modes TDM, KC, CTF etc. all are crap spawn points are big mistake and ruins all the fun.. it presses people to camp, cuz if you move anytime enemy will spawn behind you.. total bull crap EDIT- they have to make it like in Killzone, where enemy have theyr BASE defended by turrets enemy cant pass them, but spawn is very understandable and push players to play like a team.. edit on topic- if there will be 4 maps for 15$ then I will 100% pass.. I rather buy for 30$ all old maps from all previous COD (they are like about 80 maps) well that would be fun, imagine playing COD all day long and maps never will be the same..
Great point about the original MW spawns. You could actually play as a squad to some extent in MW, but the spawn points in MW3, and to a lesser extent MW2, make everyone a lone wolf. As time goes on I just get angrier and angrier about MW3. Most games, you learn to appreciate them. MW3 just gets worse the more you realize how much they've screwed up since the original. It's not even fun with friends because EVERYONE is constantly pissed off at the game. I've never sold a game to Gamestop this soon after buying it, but MW3 may be the first.
i think every person playing mw3 agrees that the mw3 maps are the worst maps ever created in any game ever..lol They have been created to make sure you get shot in the back consistently
yea they did it to reduce camping which has worked
"yea they did it to reduce camping which has worked " No it did not. People still camp, I camp if I feel like it. To see they are working on DLC(new maps)is nice, because like many peole mention here, MW3 has the worst maps compare to CoD4 or MW2. However, I'd like to see them fix the spawn issue and the quick scope problem first.
I play Domination because in previous Call of Duty games, it was the easiest of game modes to predict the spawns and not be frustrated by a broken spawn system but it Modern Warfare 3, it's just random. I a team is holding A and another team is holding B and C why is it that, when players on team A are killed they're spawning behind me at C? The spawn system is rubbish. I just don't play the game anymore.
@Princejb134... IT has not stopped camping in anyway. If you come across a squad of 6 who know what they are doing, map control is still key, and spawn trapping a team is easier than ever. If you dont camp and move around the map the chance of someone spawning on you is insane, and since they tried to make spawn trapping/killing harder, a person who has spawned has a spawn shield for like 5 seconds or something.. So the first few bullets dont count, I have videos on my fileshare of something similar.. Me and some friends trapped another team in domination and literally pre fired a corner with LMG's. Its was a joke how bad it was. if you know the spawn points you can kill a team off easily. Edit: FOr me personally MW1 and WaW had the best maps. WaW were open but with buildings and decent spawn system. Year on year the number 1 complaint in every COD is the spawn system which they dont change. I got MW3 for free, so Im lucky I didnt pay for it.
Glad to see the maps are more open
Its me or MW3 maps seems to not have shadows? I mean, almost all maps looks too bright and wierd... I remember CoD 4 and MW2 had some colors and darkness and shadows... but MW3 i see only always same colors and no shadows.
Oh thats so...cool
Looks a "bit" like the first part of Paris Metro in BF3. Not trying to start fanboy wars or anything, just commenting on the similarities.
I think the spawn logic is the most flawed aspect of MW3 level design. Some maps are worst then others though. Looking forward to some nice open maps for us legit snipers.
You mean there are actually guys like you still trying to play MW3? I take my hat off to you Sir!
Yea there are like three people in the world that like to snipe legit, not this QS bullshit.
the mw3 maps do suck. its spawn, die, spawn, kill a couple die, spawn, get shot in back die, and repeat.... by the looks of it it looks more open it does give a little feel to the back "park area" of operation metro on bf3. Hopefully they listened to the community and have made some better open maps!
I haven't had that much of a problem, but I do miss the open maps of 4 and MW2. Those had great maps.
after watching that jaw dropping jet footage from BATTLEFIELD 3 im done with mw3,c ya!!
To be honest, the jets actually are the worst part of BF3 to me. There are typically only 2 on the map, and they really aren't that fun to fly. They just feel slow. Tanks are much more fun.
That's kind of what makes BF3 great, though. You can completely hate a particular aspect of it, but there's lots of other ways to enjoy it. All I know is that when mic'd up in BF3, my teams cooperate calmly, call out targets, etc. In MW3 it is just a bunch of extremely p*ssed off people screaming expletives...it's not even fun.
Not bad, but like all COD DLC maps, they will become barren a couple of weeks later.
This is from a 2011 game?
I'm sure people will enjoy being shot in the back on this map for 15 bucks.
open maps= quickscope heaven.
So Xbox gets it first, what about Elite on Ps3?
2007 Called, It Wants It's Game Back
Crysis disagrees and throws it further back.
The last time I purchased maps for a Call of Duty game was for COD4. Previous map packs didn't interest me, but these maps look pretty good judging by the screens.
*yay*..a dlc for the copy-paste game -_-
People gonna hate but this looks great.
They always make the maps look as best as possible CAUSE THEY WANT YOUR MONEY. When they release a trailer, watch how action-packed and nice looking they make it all seem. But once you play you will be smacked with the reality of poor textures and poor lighting in graphics, bad spawning, poor map design and all the other bad stuff in MW3.
I'm not buyin' it. First MW-series DLC I can say that about. To hell with this game.
Funny to see all the COD haters hate hard still. Now that COD has crushed BF in sales, beat it in reviews (besides PC, which if you have a PC strong enough, you SHOULD be playing BF), and now all that's left to troll for them, is about how the maps "suck". FYI, the maps DO NOT suck. There are some really good maps in COD MW3. Yes, there's a couple stinkers, but there are some great ones as well. LMAO at all the haters still out here for COD. I understand that BF on consoles has been underwhelming. I've only played it a couple times too since COD came out.
A lot of the so called "haters" are actual Cod fans... I am not a big fan of BF3 which is why you won't see me comparing the two. cod4 was one of the best and most fun multiplayer games I have played this gen. We simply want a game that can produce that level of fun again. compared to past cod/mw games, mw3's maps are shit! it's nothing to do with BF3. They have just done everything possible to please noobs. Cods sales don't mean anything if the game is not enjoyable. You say there are great maps, ok like which ones and tell us why you think they are great?
I just hope these maps are bigger than the current ones.
got my email last night cant wait for some new maps!!!
looks like Central Park... ill stick with battlefield
I can't play this game without wondering what they were thinking with these maps. They are awful. Crates and pallets everywhere. Beyond tiny and just unimpressive...Not to mention that some of the locations make no sense at all given that this would be a major WW3 conflict. This DLC pack looks like a skip to me. If they won't bring back MW2 or MW1 maps then there is no reason to buy any DLC.
