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.”

Collection #4: Final Assault:

[nggallery id=334]

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.”

Collection 4: Final Assault will be available September 6th for Xbox LIVE for 1200 MSP.

UPDATE: 2 New official images of ‘Gulch’:

All these content packs will be made available to PlayStation 3 and PC at a later date. Stay tuned.

    Why does Chaos remind me of zombies but nether the less looking forward to it

    • Ed

      does regular spec ops not remind you of zombies??

      • Ed

        actually, i’m thinking of survival.

  • lMattW

    Collection 3 will go on sale August 9? When is it available to Elite premium?

    • Dave_durkin

      August 7th i believe

  • Ryan Callihan

    This is so weird… I have Elite Premium on Xbox Live and I have Offshore/Decommission but I don’t have Special Ops Chaos Mode (something that’s in the Collection 3 pack). I wonder when we’ll get it.

    • ManB3ARpig

      Special Ops Chaos Mode is part of August’s content drop. It is the classified item on the calendar, and should be available sometime next week. My best guess would be Tuesday August 7.

  • ManB3ARpig

    Seems a bit upsetting to me that the new mode (Special Ops Chaos Mode) will only be available on four different maps. I’m hoping that they update and make it available for all MP maps in the future, but by then I might be playing Black Ops II more than anything.

    • lMattW

      I’m really excited to try this new mode (I really like survival mode) but I’m also already a little bit pissed its only on 4 maps. Why limit the replay ability? Why? Three months is plenty of time play 28 maps, and I’m sure I’ll come back to MW3 a couple times after Nov.

  • dave hirst

    So ive payed for elite but yet i get the final 3 multiplayer maps at the same time as everyone else…elite is a god damn rip off.

    • bobshi

      I think you’ll find you get it a day early.

    • Collection 4 arrives the 6th of Sept. You as ELITE get it 5th of Sept

  • Pro

    I was hoping for a campaign DLC 🙁

    • They tried, but it didn’t pass testing

      • Pro

        Really? Not that I don’t believe you, but can you post the source of your statement?

        I want to read it.


        • Mark Rubin on twitter @IWMarkRubin said so.

  • ORB1T4L

    No weapons, I’m dissapointed, AGAIN !

    • ManB3ARpig

      I would have settled for some more weapon camo. As elite founders we received winter camo, but that is it?!?!?! It can’t be that hard to code different camo for the already existing weapons.

    • Infinity Ward and Treyarch’s comment on Gun DLC: Instead of making gun DLC we add as much guns as the memory can hold at launch, instead of adding a gun but hiding it, then selling it to you.

  • lMattW

    I’m pretty sure September 5th is a mistake. It’s been released on Tuesdays for Xbox since there were dinosaurs. I’m pretty sure someone will update that to be september 4th for Elite premium.

    • It might or they might be doing it like that on purpose. We don’t know.

  • Ed

    it’s weird, i am more excited reading about the new map packs than i am about playing them.

  • Ftblmike

    Does elite premium members still have to pay for chaos mode?

    • No. It is part of the content season.

  • Papadopdodododplus

    Gulch feel kind of RDRish It looks pretty sweet

  • Blaze326

    I have the hardend etd I can’t get any off these maps it.says I have to pay bull shit
