Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's "Overwatch" map out now

Activision Blizzard's content campaign for acclaimed first person shooter continues with the addition of a new map

The latest DLC in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Content Drop campaign is the "Overwatch" map. It is available now for Call of Duty Elite premium members on Microsoft's Xbox LIVE.

Overwatch is a new map that is set on a construction site atop a New York City skyscraper and it's the third DLC in a planned twenty new Content Drops that will be rolled out once a month over the next nine months.

The map is laid out over two levels with the central bridge and side routes, with no safety barriers around the perimeter adding a new level of danger for the player during combat.

Following the release of Overwatch, publisher Activision Blizzard is planning to push Elite Drops four to six for premium members on Xbox LIVE in March.

According to an Activision Blizzard spokesperson, the upcoming DLC is expected to consist of a multiplayer map called "Black Box" and two new Special Ops Missions, "Black Ice" and "Negotiator".

While the content will be made available first on Xbox LIVE, premium members on Sony's PlayStation Network will be able to access the content before non-premium members on their console.

Non-premium Call of Duty Elite members are able to purchase the new content via the Modern Warfare 3 Content Collections.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
