Transporting the battleground to an "upscale shopping center" in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the Rio map boasts a medium-sized layout. The central indoor mall serves as the epicenter, surrounded by a bustling Main Street, tram station, market, residential spaces, plaza, and café.
A covered walkway provides a strategic vantage point, and street-level armored vehicles offer crucial cover. The mall's elevation toward the center adds a tactical element, requiring players to stay vigilant for adversaries vying for control of the high ground.
The 6v6 Rio Multiplayer map is set to debut with Season 1 Reloaded for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III today. This update also brings Multiplayer Ranked Play (soon after the release), The Boys limited-time event, a new Warlord for MW Zombies, and various other additions to the gaming experience.
