Activision Blizzard hasn't offered a specific time for when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's first batch of downloadable content will hit. However, the publisher has provided word on the game's next title update, announcing that as of today, gamers answering the call of duty will find updated playlists as well as new and updated game modes in Modern Warfare 3.
Community Playlists are the most prominent change made to Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer. This feature allows Infinity Ward to take popular private match modes and make them available for public play.
Modern Warfare 3's new mode is titled Drop Zone, and it sees players rushing to secure an area in an effort to accumulate 7,500 points. As an added wrinkle, a care package lands in the drop zone every 15 seconds, and whichever team controls the area gets control over the bonus--so long as it isn't stolen. The mode sees all point streaks disabled.
As for tweaks made to existing playlists, Infinity Ward has added Hardcore Headquarters to the Hardcore Team Tactical playlist. The studio has also said that it is implementing Ricochet rules to all Hardcore modes to counter team killing. Ricochet rules dictate that friendly fire damages the attacking player, not the victim.
