first_imgNot all Season 3 maps will be available right away — Activision released three on Wednesday and will drop others at a later date.MORE: ‘Valorant’ is taking the gaming world by stormSeason 3 will build on a busy Season 2 that coincided with the debut of “Warzone” and release of “Modern Warfare 2: Campaign Remastered.”Here’s is insight into the newly accessible maps for the latest season:Talisk BacklotHere’s a remake of a “Call of Duty 4” map with more vertical levels and different elements than many of the existent “Modern Warfare” offerings. It’s historically received mixed reviews, with some appreciating the nostalgic feel of that era of the game and others considering it one of the more bland old maps.Hovec SawmillSawmill is a fresh addition based on the premise of a sawmill building engulfed in flames. Many believed this to be a remake of Village from “Modern Warfare 3” based on prior leaks, but it’s instead just a loose extension of the Village concept.There is a sizable outdoor marketplace area with close- to medium-quarter lanes ideal for run-and-gun playstyles. It’s wide open with seemingly few areas of safety or comfort.Oh, and the aesthetics are gorgeous.Aniyah IncursionIncursion is anchored by a huge central building with courtyards and smaller buildings/lanes scattered around it. The map is shaped like an arrow rather than having a typical rectangular build.It’s pretty large, and a number of vertical levels add to its spacious appearance. HardhatInstead of igniting buzz with Highrise, Favela or Afghan from MW2, Activision is instead going with a remastered edition of Hardhat later on in Season 3 (it’s not yet available).Is Hardhat solid? Yes. Is it a callback to a disappointing installment of the franchise? Also yes. Maybe we’re being too grumpy here considering Hardhat did have a fun, rather unique build. But there were other options that would have been more inspiring.Of the four announced multiplayer maps for Season 3, Hardhat will probably play the smallest. Season 3 of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” is now underway, meaning new maps, weapons and game modes.Players will be greeted with familiar digs, as several maps from previous editions of the franchise are being brought back.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Independent Senator Nick Xenophon had harsh words to say about parliament’s debate on asylum seekers this week. Senator Xenophon was unhappy with the government’s amended proposal to send refugees to Malaysia and re-open Nauru but said it was preferable to the current situation of more rickety boats coming to our shores. “This compromise might stink but the stench of death is worse,” he said. Xenophon, who previously supported onshore processing of asylum seekers as a “more humane approach”, shifted his support as a way to move policy forward rather than do nothing. From his hospital bed, he told Adelaide Now “doing nothing is not an option, something’s got to give”. “Politicians should accept that you need to lose a bit of face to save a few lives,” he said. Suffering from an inner ear condition that prevented him from attending parliament, Xenophon pushed for a policy change and to stop “petty pissant” politicians from stalling action. The Opposition and the Greens were demanding humanitarian safeguards, as the government would send refugees to Malaysia, not a signatory to the UN Refugee Convention. Despite marginally pushing through the House of Representatives, by a vote of 74 to 72, the Bill failed to win the Senate’s approval. Furious debates in parliament during the week were set against the news that another boat was sinking off the shores of Indonesia. With the rescue effort complete, Australian Maritime Safety Authority said they recovered one body. Based on information from the survivors, including crew members, it is now believed that there were 134 people on board and that three people went down with the vessel. All of the survivors are being taken to Christmas Island. This comes barely a week after another boat went down with 200 people on board. Rescuers managed to save 110 people and recovered 17 bodies, but no other survivors were found. Labor backbencher Steve Georganas believes with the bill not passed, time now should be spent on tailoring a better policy that will please both parties and stop migrants taking the dangerous route to Australia. “We are hoping … that the messages that we take back to our political leadership team is a serious message where we are asking to sit down, clear the slate and ensure that we work for a solution,” he said. Prime Minister Julia Gillard was definitely angered by the senate result. With policy unchanged, the boats will still be on route to Australia. “I don’t want to see a 13-year-old girl drown at sea in the weeks between now and when this parliament comes back in the spring. We’ve seen too many people lose their lives at sea. We have to act,” she said.last_img read more
