Are Ghosts DLC Reboot Maps Cheating Fans

All Roads lead to Brazil it seems. Not only is the World Cup visiting the greatest advert for Footballing nation that has ever kicked a football, but now it seems to be the destination for Call of Duty Ghosts Fans as well.

It seems that by paying £39.99 for a season pass this is not enough to help developers produce enough fresh new content to satisfy players.

Call of Duty Ghosts DLC pack 3, has again gone to the previous games for inspiration and this time is transporting players back to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and the excellent Favela. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Industry)

There is only so much they can do. I think they have been good to tell people in press releases which maps are being redone and they have done a lot with the bonus stuff such as Michael Myers, The Predator, and such to mix things up.

I like what they've done with the Predator and Michael Myers. What I don't like is the way they sell these other "new" maps with that spinning word "inspired". I believe those maps inspired in old maps should be free.

Overall they've done a good job with this game trying to change things up a little bit. I hadn't spent so much time in a COD since World at War. I also liked the Extinction mode, I could never get into the zombies mode for some reason.

if you paying someone for a service then they should do it. if your okay with getting scammed then keep on paying for the dlc.

How are fans being cheated? They are telling people in advance what the maps are and which ones are remodels. You know that each DLC will have remodeled maps so you can either buy a season pass and expect it or buy them after they release. It is not like they promise new maps that are fully original and bait and switch the public.

All re-skinned maps should be given out free as a fan service. These lazy re-skins are the worst part about paying for map packs.

Ghosts has provided more fresh DLC content than any other CoD.

there is only 1 map remake. big deal...Favela was one of the best maps in mw2.

There's also a remake of Scrapyard from MW2 and a remake of Dome from MW3.

the whole series has been on recycle loop since MW1 whether its for gameplay or maps ...

They're milking their timelines to say the least. We will see a WW2 COD game again and eventually a truly cyber-futuristic COD. I think those are the only games that will peak my interest in the series again- otherwise, it's modern combat + some random mode game that isn't too great from here on out.

Change isn't always bad. In COD's case it's necessary. They've released a handful of games that damn near look and play like each other. Not good. Can you imagine 8 or 9 games like Advanced Warfare down the line? This could be an endless cycle for decades!

I was initial annoyed but turns out it is just one map plus the fans don't seem to mind. As long as you keep your fans happy that's the main thing.

They are doing anything they can to bring players back to play this shit storm of a game! Lol! Ghosts is the most non played cod of all time! The gameplay trailers are false! Action is not in this game! Everyone hides, the pace is slow and boring and spawns suck ass! Lol! I'll have to wait another year for treyarch to save the day again!

The 3 new maps look pretty good and i don't mind the reboot of favela. But i'm quite disappointed that there is no new gun. This is what i've been looking forward to the most, with every new pack, as the Ripper was awesome !

I would prefer a new map but it doesn't bother me too much if it's fun to play on

Ultimately, it's up to the consumer if they want to keep giving them money for content. So if you're not happy with the content, ou kinda only have yourself to blame. simpe solution. If it ain't worth it, don't buy it.
