Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Stimulus Package Detailed

Infinity Ward has let slip some details about the upcoming map pack for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Speaking on the Major Nelson podcast, Infinity Ward community man Robert Bowling revealed that the Stimulus Package, due to land on Xbox LIVE on 30 March, will contain five maps at a price of 1200 MS Points.

Bowling said there will be “a lot of good maps that I know our community have been wanting and some they’ll never be expecting.”

The pack will contain three brand new maps; Bailout is set in an apartment complex with plenty of flanking opportunities, Storm features abandoned warehouses-cum-military outposts in an intense thunderstorm, while Salvage is a snowy map set in an abandoned junkyard.

The other two maps are fan favourites from Modern Warfare, Crash and Overgrown. Bowling confirmed that while the team has “upped the graphics a bit” on the familiar maps, they remain pretty much the same.

“They’re slightly reworked but we didn’t make any major changes,” said Bowling.

“These are maps that we love, and we don’t like messing with that formula”

What do you make of the Stimulus Package? Will you be buying? Or does 1200 MS Points for three new maps seem overpriced? Let us know in the comments section.
