According to a video uploaded by user FreestyleReplay, the first DLC Map Pack that will be released will be nostalgia based, ergo the name the "Nostalgic Map Pack".
if true the only good map in there is crossfire. they need to bring overgrown in there and ill be a happy player
Terminal and Favela are pretty good too. Crossfire will be a camper's paradise.
Grab the utter pull it down and fill the bucket. @ichii why do you think it's always battlefield players who are dissatisfied with this game? I know plenty of cod fanatics that hate on this game as well. You know why. Cause it blows. Even more than mw2.
iChii, yeah calm down. My friend has been a loyal CoD fan for ages and he always complains about how disappointing MW3 is compared to the others. I've yet to even see a "BF fanboy" comment here yet. All the comments that may seem like "trolling" actually give great points.
@iChii it's funny how BF3 players don't care to post here because they are too busy enjoying their game.
Actualy I think MW2 was the worst. MW3 is the best one since COD4. It had a great single player, a good multiplayer and a great new co-op mode.
CoD4 is STILL the best CoD game out. It had the best balance of all of them, and the maps were designed the best. Also, it was much more simple. You had 3 , 5 , and 7 Kills which gave you a UAV, Airstrike, and Helicopter, respectively. And the helicopter wasn't so damned hard to take down like they are in MW2/MW3. It could be taken down with a reasonable amount of ammo from a standard assault rifle. You didn't HAVE to use a rocket launcher. That was so much better than MW2 and MW3, with all the noob features like Deathstreaks. If you suck, you should just suck, not get help with things like Pain Killer in MW2. And that new feature in MW3 where you can run really super fast if you're starting to die alot. Until they get back to the roots of CoD4, I'm done. I'm trading my MW3 copy in for Skyrim (PS3). And regarding this DLC, we should be able to get these maps for free if we already have the previous games. They shouldn't be RE-SELLING us these maps. If anything, give us these maps for free. And also, all the map packs from MW2 should be playable with MW3 as well. It's a ripoff we can't use map packs with the next game, if you ask me. It's the exact same game engine as the last 5 years, so it would work. The only map I see worth buying the map pack for is Crossfire from CoD4. I'm gonna go play some CoD4 right now, matter of fact. The only CoD game worth playing, personally.
@Codeman420 They probably won't bring it back since it was in a map pack in MW2. Only map of these that I don't like is Shipment. Everything else is fine.
or you could pop in a your copy of MW1 and play the map, the gameplay is the same, only diff is new killsteaks. graphics arent even better so whats the point? I knew they would release this garbage because not one map in MW3 is good or memorable as the old ones and thats cuz most of infinity ward left, only the crappy guys stood behind and made the current team. i feel bad for who ever buys this junk or wasted money on elite so they could get maps they've been playin for years. Hilarious thing is u guys already bought these old maps for ur MW2, now u buy it again for MW3....haha so sad
mw3's graphics are better than cod4's. Not a super-drastic change, but they're better nonetheless...you should make an appointment with your eye doctor. Also, if you guys like having half of your matches end prematurely due to the host "backing out" then go for, play cod4. I tend enjoy games more where the match switches hosts when one leaves :) If mw3 had that issue, you haters would be all over that..talking tons of s**t like you still do.
graphics have been the same since COD2 back when the 360 launched they have just updated them slightly. and the spawn system in COD4 was the best in the series dont know who thought it was a good idea to get rid of it.
^If the graphics are updated, how are they "the same"? And idk if it's true or not...but I believe I heard somewhere that the spawn system was changed because people figured out how to spawn-trap. That definitely could be wrong though...
I played cod4 the other day. Whilst the game was incredible four years ago it's amazing how much all those little refinements over the year have made. COD4 gave me great memories but sometimes it's best to never go back. However some of those maps were great. I wish Activision would release all the old ones for free. Would he awesome to have like 40 maps to play on. It would actually be a good pr exercise for them. Such a shame they never will
@RioKing they are the same graphics they just add minor tweaks to the to get them to run smoother. and about the spawn system, its worse now than in MW1. In the first MW it made since if you passed the halfway point on the map you switch sides in the match here its all random where you will spawn right beside someone on the other team. been that way ever since WaW, and while they say they fixed the issue it still remains.
Way to downplay MW3's new features. If you honestly think the only new features is new killstreaks then you're a poor troll.
WTF? if remade maps are gift... OK... (Heavy Metal and Harvest Day) But pay for old maps? NO WAY!!! I dont pay my Premium Elite to get OLD maps... NO NO NOOOOO Nostalgia my a.....
That's funny because I loved Favela and will be super-excited if it's back. Oh well, I guess I'm in the minority (on N4G, lol) Yeah yeah I get it, "if you want Favela put your mw2 disc in" blah blah blah....
wich is the funny part? i'm not laughing
Yeah, Dice did it right earlier, all map packs were free if you had bought the game new, or had online pass. Epic also did it right, all map packs were free in GoW1, old maps were free in GoW2, and new ones were in reasonable priced, not sure about GoW3 tought. If Activision asks 10-15€ for old maps, I wouldn't be surprised, but it would be laughable. Tought past have shown why not? People will still buy them to get theyr favourite map/s to play again, no matter the price..
whaaaaat? terminal is a pretty good app
and then... play MW2
We have to wait until march for the first map pack? I'm starting to regret my elite membership...
i believe that would be day/month/year
What a fucking scam; already been shown that map data is on the pc version.
Im pretty sure this has happened with other games, where the content is already on the disk and then you pay to unlock it under the guise of downloadable content. I may be wrong, correct me if I am, but if this is the case it isn't fair to criticize CoD for it.
True snipes, I have seen this quite a lot, but I'm not sure if it is that simple. For example in BF:BC2 I bought Vietnam add-on, which came out pretty long time after the real game, and the size was about 700kb? It had new maps, a lot of music, vehicles, weapons, total conversion of the game (have to mention it was 12€, insanelly cheap). How in the name of something I can't type here it was so small? Was the game running on server side or something? Don't know if in this case the content allready is in the game as mittwaffen stated, could be there is just something that makes the game ready for the maps? Maybe someone with better knowledge can bring some light in this matter, since I would like to know how these things work...
shipment....1v1 :D and favela those 2 maps are good...but only 4???
OR, why don't they get off their ass's and make a new map. :L A little less copy/paste would make this repainted Modern Warfare 2 alittle bit more original.
Who could have known that they would reuse maps from previous games? Not like they have did that several times before..
Hasn't this video already been confirmed as fake?
I like CoD, but i dont want to play CoD4 and mw2 maps...if i wanted to play them i`d go back to CoD4 and MW2.
why keep on putting older cod maps out i mean cod4 maps? seriously, everyone has cod im sure if you want to play them maps you go put that cod in stick to new maps IW stop being a lazy bunch of tw*ts remaking older maps on previous games
out of the 3 mw games i like the ones in mw2 the best
I love the mw2 maps.. They were well designed, so far I'm not a big fan of most of the mw3 maps, too many places to hide.. I like village and hardhat the most..
bad maps are bad.
all at the low low price of $50! but if you have COD elite you only pay 49.99!
Scene over at Activision think lab (milking way). It looks pretty tense and hectic at Activision's HQ as they are already few millions out of their 100+ billion and want to discuss how to get more money out of public. Lead designer DLC excitedly suggests how about some new maps and just charge 5$ so it will be easier for people to buy it instead of 15 we usually charge in this tough economy? ...FIRED Guy with finger in his nose.. hey how about just renaming maps from MW2/COD4? ... Hey you are Promoted to Lead designer for DLC. Btw what's your current designation? Guy replies, just the janitor i had just finished unblocking the puke ladden sink in Directors bathroom. Well you can now sit in the Lead designers room from tomorrow. We'll pay you 5$ extra / hour over your current package.
I would totally be down for this if it is real.
i would like highrise. i think thats the name.
amen great map
<insert generic anti-call of duty recycled-maps comment here>
COD1/2 maps = nostalgia. COD4+ = rehash!
"COD4+ = rehash!" troll is a fail troll COD4 was a good game. i can understand if you said MW2 and over but COD4 ?
I'd pee my pants if Crash and Overgrown came back.
You ever pay £89.99 for a hardened edition of a game then feel sick to the stomach i feel that way now :/.
LOL mw3 maps are utter shit....there isnt a single memorable map in there.....mw2 and mw maps were awesome.....the reason mw3 is shit is cuz infinity ward left so now the so called new shite "infinity ward" is reusing the old maps cuz they cant make any good new ones.
Fake. So fake!
If true, then the bad side is that the pack can't be discounted even being old maps. Because they heavily promoted the total savings for the four packs when you subscribe to Elite. Am I the only fan of WaW? I would like them to make all the private match alternative modes available in the public match menu. Great for those with short friends list.
i own these games why would i want these maps ? step your game up activision.
