If you are one of the millions of people who are still playing Modern Warfare 2, even though its multiplayer is broken beyond repair, then this is your lucky day. Details and pricing for the game’s first downloadable map pack have been released, and it appears that killing has a steep price tag attached to it.
For the completely absurd price of $15 (1200 MS Points), you’ll be able to slaughter your enemies in one of five new maps, two of which are actually “slightly reworked” maps from the original Modern Warfare. Xbox 360 owners will get first dibs at this DLC when it launches on March 30th, followed by the PS3 and PC versions which will be available at some undisclosed date in April.
For more information about these new maps, hit the jump.
- “Bailout” – A multi-level apartment complex.
- “Storm” – An open industrial park littered with heavy machinery.
- “Salvage” – A snowy junkyard fortified by stacked debris and crushed cars.
“Reworked” Modern Warfare Maps:
- “Crash” – A war torn urban environment.
- “Overgrown” – Which features a massive dry creek bed.
While I might have a problem with the $15 price tag of this DLC, I completely understand that Infinity Ward and Activision can charge it and people will pay. After all, we are talking about a game that’s sold more than 25 million copies, many of which are still playing the multiplayer. When a game is that popular, you can charge whatever you want and people will flock to it.
I personally don’t plan on picking it up, but I also haven’t played the game since December. How do the rest of your feel about this DLC. Are you excited about the new maps? Is Activision charging too much, or is Modern Warfare 2 so good it warrants the steep price?
