Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered’s Variety Map Pack DLC Gets a Launch Trailer

March 21, 2017Written by Jason Dunning

Priced at $14.99/£11.59, and carrying a 3GB download size, the Variety Map Pack for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered is now available for PlayStation 4 (North America, Europe). In the new trailer today, you can see all four maps in action.

Here’s what to expect from each map:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

The Variety Map Pack also includes 10 Rare Supply Drops.

Speaking with the Activision Blog, Raven Software Lead Environment Artist Mike Button said remastering the maps “was a goal for us from the very beginning,” and “the game just didn’t quite feel the same without them.”

Asked if Wet Work might get a map variant (like Downpour did with Daybreak), Button said:

Daybreak really breathes new life into Downpour and it was a lot of fun for the team to work on. If Daybreak goes over well with fans I hope there could be more opportunities for map variants like this to happen in the future.

As a reminder, the Operation Shamrock & Awe event is live until April 3.
