The new Face-Off mode that's coming to Modern Warfare 3 next week seems pretty cool. It will let players compete in 1v1 and 2v2 matches on small maps just made for the mode. The brand-new, totally-official and only-slightly-confusing video from the Call of Duty folks explains and shows most of it.
The confusing part?
This (emphasis added): "Grab a friend and experience an all-new way to play Call of Duty multiplayer. Infinity Ward, Sledgehammer Games, and Raven Software discuss the ALL-NEW Face Off gameplay style and Collection 2 DLC in this behind-the-scenes multiplayer video for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Two FREE Face Off Maps will be made available on May 16th for Xbox Live. Two additional Face Off maps will be available for purchase as part of the Collection 2 DLC pack for Xbox Live on May 22nd."
Free to whom? Do you to be an Elite member? We don't know. (We've asked Activision and will update this when we've gotten it sorted.)
