Activision has finally announced the details surrounding its upcoming map packs that will be released a month earlier on the XBL Marketplace. Oddly enough, you may need that extra month of time to save up for them to begin with, so the wait isn’t really all that bad.
Dubbed the “Stimulus Package” (terrible name), the pack will contain five maps – two of which were a part of Call of Duty 4 – and retail for 1200 Microsoft Points. This translates roughly to $14.99 on the PlayStation Store.
For those of you wondering; no, that isn’t a typo. Activision really is charging you $15 for 3 new maps and 2 old ones. It’s fine though, it’s not as though the company was paid a large sum of cash by Microsoft for timed exclusivity and it isn’t as though Activision didn’t gross over one BILLION dollars selling the game or anything.
So, open up those wallets and help the poor – they’re obviously hurting for cash with the recent layoffs of the top Infinity Ward executives.
