Call of Duty Elite: Two New MW3 Maps Now Available on PS3

111w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that two new MW3 maps are now available for Call of Duty Elite on the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: Welcome to winter. It's snowing in Fargo today and the northeast is about to get some of that white stuff too. But I hear Italy is lovely this time of year.

Wouldn't you rather be seaside in some adorable little European villa? Picture it: Sitting in a small bistro, overlooking the sea, sipping something delicious...why, it's a little slice of paradise.

Then you hear the WHUPWHUPWHUP of rotors overhead, and your exquisite view is obscured by smoke from a nearby grenade.

Sorry, pal, you're not on vacation - you're in the thick of the conflict, because you're in Piazza, one of the two new Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer maps that are reaching Call of Duty Elite premium members today via the PlayStation Network. Now it's a little slice of paramilitary paradise.

Piazza is actually going to be a big hit with fans of close-quarters combat; the tiny town features several sharp corners, tight corridors, and dangerous staircases that just beg to be explored with a Striker or P90 in hand.

Is the European coast not your style? Maybe the cold doesn't bother you - maybe you prefer...

To quote: My name is Skander Djerbi, I'm a member of I-Friqiya, a tiny indie team located in Tokyo and in charge of Fuel Overdose.

In our team there is Ryo our graphic designer, Jerome our game designer/level designer/programmer, Hideyuki our character designer while Aroun and I are the producers of the game.

To cut a long story short, we used to work for big publishers and we decided to venture into indie game development in 2010 because we thought we could bring something new to the table; what we are bringing you is Fuel Overdose.

Our ambition with this game is to bring back retro, top-down combat racing, but with a twist; that's why we like to think of our project as a "Tactical Action-Racing" game.

Action

We are not inventing the combat racing genre - we played most of them on consoles and PC over the past 15-20 years, and it appeared very quickly during our first meetings that there was no point trying to develop a remake of these games.

But we also realized that there were some essential...
