The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection #2 is out now for Xbox 360 through the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, Activision has announced. The second content collection will set you back 1200 Microsoft points.

Collection #2 includes three Multiplayer/Survival Mode maps (Sanctuary, Foundation and Oasis), two Special Ops missions (Iron Clad and Switch Back), and two all-new Face Off maps (Getaway and Lookout) for use in the brand new game mode.

Face Off brings close-quarters combat to MW3, with the maps being tighter and ideal for frantic up close and personal gameplay.

Xbox 360 receives Modern Warfare 3 content first, but all the maps and game modes will be available on PlayStation 3 and PC in the near future.

As you may or may not be aware I have been religiously trying to avoid Modern Warfare 3, mainly because this time round I thought I'd get and stick with Battlefield 3 instead. I'm not saying one is better than the other; they're different. I just cannot have two FPS's on the go at once, and having liked the bigger maps in games like Bad Company 2 I figured I'd give BF3 the chance to shine. And so when it was released I bought the Special Edition, with the B2K map pack DLC. I got about halfway through the campaign before I jumped into the multiplayer, where I have stayed ever since.

BF3 was released on 28th October last year. Although paid for the B2K maps were not available until 6th December (about 6 weeks later). The next set of maps will arrive next month (about 6 months after the last lot).

Compare this with Call of Duty. Released 8th November the first DLC was available in March with the second DLC available now. They were available to premium Elite members before these dates.

EA/Activision. Call of Duty/Battlefield. It's horses for courses really, but one thing Activision are bang on the money with when it comes to Call of Duty is how they support the product post-release. Some might call it a cash cow, but these new maps are what keep people coming back to the game and Activision have got it nailed. The releases are well timed (to avoid so called 'mapathy') and their servers continue to be fully supported.

In this regard EA are falling well short of the mark, with (imo) tardy release schedules and rent-a-servers that have destroyed the MP for anybody not connected to some sort of hardcore clan. It also seems increasingly difficult to get a game on the DLC maps too, which does not bode well for the Close Quarters release next month.

I am beginning to think that my decision to get BF3 instead of MW3 last year was a poor one.
