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.

::UPDATE 03/14/10::

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?

    • I agree only because I hate the cheaters on COD: MW2, BUT they will slowly begin to lurch onto the servers of Bad Company
