It’s been a while since Activision & Co. launched an event surrounding downloadable content (DLC), ’tis the season was the first of many DLC events they intend to have. The original Modern Warfare only had a few DLC events, and it was never revisited again after that. But, Modern Warfare Remastered had a few updates beyond the ’tis the season event. The next DLC is based around Modern Warfare’s first DLC pack. Activision wrote a blog post on their website to talk about the next DLC, “Variety Pack.”
We’ve heard lots of you asking for it, so we are excited to announce that as part of #MarchRemastered, the Variety Map Pack will be heading to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, bringing four epic maps into the updated experience. There’s even more coming to Modern Warfare Remastered this month, and we wanted to start it off with the map pack players have been asking for.
Arriving first on the PlayStation 4 on March 21, the Variety Map Pack will have a suggested retail price of $14.99 and will include 10 Rare Supply Drops, which represents a $20 bonus value (based on Rare Supply Drop suggested retail prices, actual value may vary).
The Variety Map Pack contains some of the most epic maps in Modern Warfare history, allowing you to experience four classic locations in all of their remastered glory across a range of different environments.
Killhouse: A small training warehouse filled with various building mock ups that feature soft and hard cover points. Expect fast-paced and fierce firefights for maximum close-quarters chaos.
Creek: Set in a wide-open village ravaged by combat where concealment is the difference between life and death, a gaping ravine divides this map into two. Open clearings with sheer cliff faces and ample forested cover make this map ideal for snipers and long-range firefights.
Broadcast: Based on the TV station from the campaign mission “Charlie Don’t Surf”, this map provides a unique blend of confined corridors and wide-open spaces. Outside the station, the parking lot contains long sightlines, but once inside, cramped hallways and a computer-cluttered broadcast room provide ample close-range combat opportunities.
Chinatown: Set in a foggy downtown district, this nighttime map is lit up by flickering neon signs and a full moon. A re-imagining of the original Call of Duty multiplayer map “Carentan”, players will need to be careful on these streets, as almost every building in the map can be occupied, providing perfect cover for enemies waiting for a chance to line you up in their sights.
Whether you’re ready to experience a blistering Team Deathmatch on Broadcast, or running rampant during Headquarters on Chinatown, the Variety Map Pack allows you to experience Modern Warfare Remastered in a whole new way.
The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Variety Map Pack is available to preorder now for the PlayStation 4, with other platforms to come later.
