More Call of Duty content incoming as Activision has announced the two final collection packs making their way to Modern Warfare 3 in the next couple of months. Collection 3: Chaos Pack will be hitting the Xbox 360 first on August 9 while Collection 4: Final Assault will be dropping on September 6.
Activision recently issued a press release describing what each collection packs in:
Call of Duty: MW3 Collection 3: Chaos Pack
“Offers extensive solo and co-op gameplay for the Special Ops enthusiast, featuring four brand new Special Ops Missions — Vertigo, Arctic Recon, Light ‘Em Up and Special Delivery — and FACE OFF maps — Vortex, U-Turn and Intersection. Introducing a new way to play Call of Duty®, Special Ops Chaos Mode delivers a frenetic form of combat that demands players to outlast waves of enemies, while chaining kills on maps littered in power-ups to achieve the highest possible score on fan-favorite multiplayer maps Resistance, Village, Underground and Dome.”
Call of Duty: MW3 Collection 4: Final Assault
“Tailored toward hardcore multiplayer fans, and features five all-new multiplayer maps. ‘Gulch’ sends combatants into a forgotten mining town with mine shafts and equipment sheds for cover. In ‘Boardwalk,’ fun in the sun on the Jersey Shore means facing enemies on the beach. ‘Offshore’ and ‘Decommission’ will test players’ sea legs on deadly oceanic oilrigs and among a maze of rotting ocean liners respectively. Rounding out the collection is a trip to the French Quarter in a war-torn New Orleans, where ‘Parish’ pits players against one another amidst the city’s rubble.”
Each collection will be released first on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1,200 Microsoft Points, or $14.99. Naturally, the content in each collection will be made available to Xbox 360 Premium Elite members earlier with this months content drops, including the Special Ops missions Light ‘Em Up and Special Delivery along with the new Special Ops Chaos Mode, set to be released August 7, according to the official website.

Special Ops Chaos Mode
“A whole new way to play Call of Duty®, Special Ops Chaos mode delivers the ultimate in arcade mayhem. Experience truly heart-pounding and adrenaline-fueled action while competing for high scores in Resistance, Village, Underground and Dome. Chain kills together against a never-ending onslaught of enemies to increase your combo multiplier and earn performance-enhancing perks. Choose your route through each map to optimize weapon pickups, attack, and escape options. Play solo, split screen or online with a friend to take out as many enemies as possible before they take you down or the clock hits zero.”
“A nautical graveyard gives birth to a sprawling shantytown in ‘Decommission,’ a mid-sized multiplayer map populated with chokepoints and fortifications.”
“An off shore oil rig spreads combat across three platforms in ‘Off Shore,’ leading to skirmishes at every turn. Multiple interconnecting bridges, cramped indoor locations and frequent stairwells constantly challenge navigation throughout.”
“Decades after fires charred this forgotten mining town, the red rock canyon gains new shades of red in ‘Gulch,’ where the surrounding mountains, mine shafts and equipment sheds craft a perfect setting for high-tension combat.”
“Head to the Jersey Coast for a sunny afternoon in ‘Boardwalk,’ where you’ll face your enemies on the beach and fight for dominance at the arcade while still finding time to cut the line at the rollercoaster.”
“Wishful thinking won’t keep you safe in New Orleans’ war-torn French Quarter in ‘Parish,’ where a local bombed-out church plays host to close-quarters combat amidst the city’s rubble.”
