Resurgence Package

The resurgence package is the second DLC map pack from Infinity Ward for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Like the Stimulus package it includes 5 more maps for the popular game.

Release Date: June 06, 2010

As with the Stimulus package, two of the maps included are from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and 3 are brand new. Infinity Ward says that they include maps from their old games since they want to bring back the maps that people really like most.

The maps included in the Resurgence package include:

From the previous Modern Warfare: Vacant. This is set in a small, single floor Russian office building. Small corridors make for good close quarters combat and the large delivery bay which looks out onto garden area allows for good long range combat. A really good tatical and fun map.

Again from the previous Modern Warfare: Strike. A large open map set in a urban desert town. Lots of ways to get around the map and lots of opportunities to encounter enemies. It has been given a green look though since the original Modern Warfare and a few areas tweaked to improve gameplay.

The first brand new map is Carnival. Set in a desolate and abandoned amusement park it has awesome vantage points for snipers and Infinity Ward said it is like nothing they have ever done before.

Next we have Trailer Park. This map contains lots of narrow corridoors and close quarter combat areas. Set in an mobile home trailer park. This is the smallest map in the Resurgence package.

Lastly we have Fuel. A map set around an oil refinery which has been strategically seperated by a large open sniper area and a large warehouse with tight coridoors for fast action combat. The map is as big as the Stimuls package map Overgrown.

Prices: £10.99 or 1200 Microsoft points

Stimulus Package

The Stimulus Package is the first DLC Map pack that is availabile for Modern Warfare 2. The package contains 5 multiplayer maps, 3 of which are brand new and 2 which have been resurrected from Call of Duty 4.

Release Date: May 04, 2010

 

The maps available are as follows:

From the first modern warfare we have Overgrown. This map really is snipers galore, its a small town that is completely overgrown with trees and wildlife. Fantastic for sniping and secret ambushes.

Again from the first modern warfare we have Crash. This map is based around a crashed US Helicopter at the centre of the map. It includes a few good sniping positions and involves very urban warfare.

Storm is the first brand new map available in the package. It takes place in a deserted factory, a fairly small map with a couple of good sniping postisions, good close quarters combat and more. Very good map for gametypes such as headquarters and capture the flag.

Salvage is set in a vehicle scrap yard where majority of the map is made up of stacked cars. It has been completely covered by snow too with two main buildings on each side of the map.

Bailout is another fun map, based around a convoy of tanks along a big street, fights occur between the large buildings either side of the street or up and down the road. Seems like a fairly basic map but it offers alot.

Price: £10.99 or 1200 Microsoft points
