The first map pack for Modern Warfare 2, “Stimulus Package”, hasn’t even been released yet, and there are talks of continuing DLC for the title. And why not? Modern Warfare 2 was an immense success, and the DLC for it will certainly follow in its virtual footsteps.
Infinity Ward’s community manager Robert Bowling, recently spoke with NowGamer on upcoming DLC for Modern Warfare 2, plus the price of the first map pack. The latter has been under fire for it’s price, which is a hefty $15 price tag(with five maps, that’s $3 a map). Bowling defended the price of the map pack, saying it was “worthwhile.”
“I have no doubt that anyone who downloads this map pack is going to get their money’s worth. They’re going to feel their investment is worthwhile. Because if you’re playing Modern Warfare 2 like myself or many other people do every night, that’s actually going to give you a bunch of new mileage and a bunch of extra gameplay – to really explore and discover them and to really, you know, come up with new tactics and experience them in a whole new way. Regardless of what the price is you’re going to feel your money’s well-spent.”
Also during the talk, Bowling also confirmed that at least one more DLC pack is being planned for Modern Warfare 2. In the original Modern Warfare, the spectacular title only received one pack, so it’s a nice change to see more commitment in the DLC area.
“We’re definitely going to do at least one more DLC pack, but the direction of it and specifically what we’re going to do hasn’t been determined yet.”
The Modern Warfare 2 “Stimulus Package” DLC hits PSN on April 30th.
