Major Nelson has posted a friendly reminder letting Call of Duty Elite Premium Members know the February content for Modern Warfare 3 Call is now available on Xbox 360.

Today’s content consists of the Overwatch Map which takes place atop a New York City skyscraper.

Battles will take place along two levels in a new “symmetrical layout” with the central bridge and side routes open to attack from multiple angles.

You will apparently need to watch your step as well, because you can fall to your death.

If you are already premium Elite member, Overwatch and all previous content is included free. After the exclusivity period on 360 ends, Overwatch will be released for PC and PS3.

Along with the update are 400 new ranks and five new Prestige levels for Xbox 360 – the same ones PC players received last week. PS3 users will receive the rank and Prestige update on February 28.

New shots for Overwatch are posted below.
