Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has added Community Playlists. According to a post on callofduty.com, a new title update will "add popular or unique private match modes to the public playlists, so you can start ranking up on them."
The first playlist change is Drop Zone, which Infinity Ward Creative Strategist Robert Bowling describes as a mode that has players "get to the drop zone to earn points. The first team to 7500 points wins the round, but thats not all. As long as the Drop Zone is occupied, a care package will drop every 15 seconds, which ever team has the most members in the drop zone at that point 'owns' the care package, but anyone can steal it. This is the only way to earn air support in this mode, all other pointstreaks are disabled. You'll earn 20 points per team member, for every second they're in the drop zone plus 20 XP individually for your time spent in the zone. Kills are worth 50 XP in this mode. Point streaks (besides those obtained through in-game care packages) are disabled."
