Modern Warfare 2 Map Packs Confirmed
It looks like we are indeed getting 5 maps with March 30th’s Stimulus Package, 3 brand new maps and 2 fan favorites.
Infinity Ward and Activision are bring back the war-torn urban backdrop that is CRASH, and OVERGROWN known for the dry creek bed and the attic where everyone camps. The 3 new maps are BAILOUT, STORM AND SALVAGE.
BAILOUT, will bring the fight into a multi-level apartment complex, I for one can not wait for the close-quarter fire fights. A huge industrial park littered with scrap metal and heavy machinery will be the setting for STORM. Lastly we head to the frozen tundra of SALVAGE where a snow covered junkyard filled with crushed cars and stacked debris will round out the maps.
I know that I for one am happy to finally be able to break up the monotony of the same 5 map that we have been getting. There is nothing better than playing HIGHRISE then ESTATE than getting HIGHRISE again.
It has also been confirmed that the first DLC for Modern Warfare 2 will cost 1200 Microsoft point (which roughly equals $15.00 or more accurately $25, because you will have to either buy 2000 points or a 1000 and 500 points combo), and $14.99 on the Playstation Network. I for one am not happy enough with the game to shell out another $25, so I will be waiting until there is some sort of a special deal to get it.
What do you think?
