Modern Warfare 3 Map Pack 1: Nostalgic teased

The @MW3Updates twitter profile has just shown us a picture and revelaed the date of the first Call of Duty Map Pack!

The tweet was as follows: “Rumored Nostalgic Map Pack for #MW3. Which MW1 or MW2 map would you like to see in #MW3?”

In an official post here, it was revealed that the first DLC for Modern Warfare 3 will be released on the 24th January. One map called “Park” has been official announced with 3 others teased.

We knew map packs were coming, so it seems logical that they’d release it pretty early after release in order to give us as many map packs as possible! The first Black Ops map pack was released on the 1st of Feburary so for Modern Warfare 3 it’s a month later. (We have assumed the image is using the American date format)

Check out the picture they posted below, it shows off 4 previous Modern Warfare maps which are as follows:

  • Terminal from Modern Warfare 2 (Set in an Airpot terminal, luggage and planes everywhere, lots of glass too!)
  • Favela from Modern Warfare 2 (The slums of Rio de Janeiro, lots of ground and rooftop battles!)
  • Shipment from Modern Warfare (The smallest Call of Duty Map you’ll ever see! It’s basically as square map with a few shipping containers in the middle! The most intense map ever!)
  • Crossfire from Modern Warfare (A map I personally loved, great for sniping along the large main road and great close quarters combat in this desert town!)


We are uncertain whether these will all be released as part of a map pack as of yet. The twitter post asked us which our favourite map was from MW1 or MW2 and which one we’d like to see return. This could mean they are letting the community pick the 5th map for the pack or they are letting us choose one from the list they have compiled.

Although being called Nostalgic which is defined by wikipedia as “The term nostalgia describes a yearning for the past, often in idealized form.” could mean the map pack will be made up of all previous maps, so I think the community is going to get to pick the 5th map! If they are bringing back all previous map maps then that would explain why the pack is being released so quickly after launch, lets just hope the price is right. Bring back highrise I say!

A PlayStation update a few weeks ago revealed that there would be a total of 20 pieces of DLC for Modern Warfare 3 starting in early 2012 over a 9 month period. The DLC’s will include extra Multiplayer and Special Ops maps! With 20 pieces on the way we’ll have to assume that the prices of the DLC’s will be lower than what they usually are, being prices usually around $18 would be far, far to expensive, especially since there will be 20 of them! Otherwise that would equate to $620 on map packs… Premium Call of Duty: Elite memebers get all the map packs and DLC’s automatically amongst other content for which they pay $60 a year so that would equate to about $3 per DLC which is fantastic!

The 20 pieces of DLC could possibly refer to individual maps. So if there are 4 maps per DLC that would mean there are scheduled to be 5 DLC’s in total. If there are 5 maps per DLC, then 4 packs in total which could seem more reasonable!

We recently had a discussion on which maps we’d like to see return in Modern Warfare 3 here, what maps do you want to see return?

    Why is it that when something works well things have to change. Lag issues are the #1 problem, hate the servers, go back to black ops style of servers

    • Tad

      dude Joe dont be retarded the only reason you lag is you have a a shitty internet connection and the black ops servers sucked you’re always getting kicked out of games cause you cant find a host ive been kicked out of one game on MW3 due to not being able to find a host so think and gather real knowledge before you speak

  • http://gritengine.com Brian

    This is fake. How can you not see that this is fake as hell? Free brushes used… it’s FAKE. Noobs.

  • http://Edc.com Tytytytutyt

    Rust!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • vre

    So… ive to pay for some Maps which are already in MW2? So there is no new Content, they just copy/paste the MW2 Folder into the MW3 folder and we have to pay for it? Seriously… that IS a real rip.off. Imho.

    Other games get some DLC free with actually NEW content! Thats fucking joke here. Because there is no ELITE membership for PC users… fuck this, money horny bastards.

  • Goresh

    Considering the unfinished state MW3 has been in since release the 1st DLC should be free!!

  • kz

    summit, nuketown from blackops

  • Nacho

    20 pieces means like 20 maps…not 20 dlcs packs.

    • Matthew savitski

      haha 20 dlcs would be epic though

  • Drew Brust

    Summit Firing Range NUKETOWN Black Ops
    Rust Terminal High Rise MW2
    attack Dogs

    • LETS PUT BO ON MW3!!

      YEA BRO ATTACK DOGS! ROCK ON !!!!

  • Freestylfanatic1

    you guys are retarded. They aren’t gonna bring back maps from black ops. It’s an entirely different developer. Please educate yourself and stop sounding ignorant.

  • Bas_23

    summit, nuketown tomahawk from black ops
    rust highrise from mw2 would be the best map packs ever!

  • Brett

    Whoever wrote this article is an idiot. Number 1: DLC posters always have the UK date format on them and DLC is always released on a Tuesday. January 3rd is a Tuesday, so this makes perfect sense.

  • palapoli

    “Nostalgic map pack”, yeah sure. Those maps are from MW1 and MW2 i don’t see any nostalgia there, sorry.

    • Calkins88

      nostalgia means longing for the past.. How isn’t there any nostalgia?

      • shomazta

        think he’s implying that it isn’t much of a past to be nostalgic about

  • Grovesmp

    what happened to the ‘monthly’ release of dlc

  • Nunyabiz

    pfff.. MW3 is such a half-assed release… come March, I’ll be playing the new Ghost Recon.

    • DannyCool69

      Good luck with that, lol. Ghost Recon sucks balls.

  • Matthew savitski

    i think it should be
    nuketown summit grid
    rust highrise carnival
    battery cliffhanger dome
    vaccant vaccant vacant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • nunyobizness

    retards for one thing BO sucked and two they would never bring back the maps from black ops

    • Kal

      BO is probably the second best CoD there is.

      CoD4>BlackOps>CoD2>Mw3>Mw2>CoD1>CoD5>CoD3

      • http://www.facebook.com/charliewahl Charlie Wahl

        Should’ve been “MW3 & MW2″, but it still works.  I don’t understand how people can say BlOps sucked, since it had a good campaign and didn’t deviate much from the rest of the CoD multiplayer.  Hell, throw in two different varieties of Zombies and Zork as an added bonus, that was a great game IMO.

  • http://twitter.com/Raveyer Sergio Bueno Bueno

    Pues, yo pienso que podríais poner Wasteland, porque en MW3 casi no se puede usar el fusil de precisión, pienso k un mapa como Wasteland estaría bien para aliviar un poco a los camperos y para jugar con silenciadores en un táctico por equipos, y Backlot tambien está muy bien para combate urbano y un poco de apoyo de francotirador. En vez de Terminal podríais haber puesto Skidrow o Overgrown, también Vacant está muy bien.

  • Lasv155

    KILLHOUSE!!!!!!!!

  • lovelychii

    The day I see Nuke town on MW3, I will re-buy it. ;) Though my TV is going Awalled -_-; so really its pointless for me.

  • ItzMonoxside

    They should do all the Cod:4 maps.

    • Poo

      They should make new maps instead of ripping us off.

      • shomazta

        they should… however, how is getting old maps a bad thing… new game with old maps, would’ve loved to have mw2 maps on bo… so def want em all on mw3

  • Hades123_10

    1:54 1337:D

  • Hari Gamezs

    i can not play mw3 you have 1.04 update

  • CenturyFox

    nice :D
    i liked all these maps, but in my opinion they should replace Favela by Highrise.
    Then it would be perfect!

  • Azt3c2005

    Sorry but on a serious note.. every single one of these map’s was my favorites. THANK GOD!!!

  • DURO

    I think they should do new maps ! All of these maps are from games we have played before i HOPE this are not the maps that are coming out and they make NEW ONES because the maps from COD4 SUCKS !

    • Nothing

      How come the video says 3-1-12……. I thought it came out the 24th. Obviously none of this is true………… -___-

    • H4IL

      COD4 Maps are actually the best maps in all of call of duty.

  • crabpoacher

    same old tricks just go ahead and make us pay for maps we already paid for, it sucks being the sheep with a little common sense.

  • Iaj

    i hate favela. it should be afghan

  • SuSiRunner

    Guys shut up who cares if these are from older games they were great in the old games so in mw3 the graphics will be better and there will be differnt guns and beside you and going to get it any way.

  • CODMANIAC

    they should bring back bloc and bog. i realy believe that all maps from all COD titles and packs should be available for multiplayer since they are all part of COD MANIA and they all have there place in are hearts

    • Parker_ridge

      I think they should come out with all new maps

  • CrueLxMelodY

    Legit, I’m ok with old maps if they lowered the prices. I love all the MW1 maps, and Half of the MW2 maps and only like a few of the MW3 Maps, so i don’t have much hope for the ‘new’ maps, so i say bring on the old ones. And BTDUBS MW3 will never have a Blops map unless Infinity Ward/Sledgehammer bought them off of Treyarch. Which will never happen. :D

  • REKCUT ENAHS

    I would rather see new maps if I want to play “nostalgia” maps I would play that game, I didn’t buy the elite package to get something I already have. The COD franchise needs to quit wanting to get rich off their fans, and give us something worth paying for.

  • Foxcody1

    Creek from cod4

  • Richard

    Dont really like Crossfire Shipment and Favela lol, I prefer Countdown (I believe its named that, havent played cod4 in ages) Bog and Bailout lol

  • Corvetteguy1994

    for all of you who say there would never be a BO map pack for this game are wrong. i admit the chances are slim but if you read the end credits Treyarc help develop MW 3 so there’s a chance.

    • Guest

      and Treyarch did the Wii version. maybe it’s the Wii’s time to have DLC?

  • lol

    Replace Shipment with Highrise.

  • Devilsdime

    Nice, how much for each map packs. But it dont matter damn hacker kill the fun in it. Like they have for mw2 and mw3

  • I iz u and u iz me

    I would LOVE to see VACANT and CRASH 2 best from mw2

  • dion

  • CB

    I’ve been waiting for them to bring my Shipment. It’s by far the coolest map from any of the CoD games. Impossible to camp!

  • SQU1D_B1LLY

    Your math is off. 20 DLC Packs at $18 a piece would come to $360 not $620. You suck at life

    • Joshuadlucas

      Elite said 20 DLC pieces will cost about 60$. Glad I have Premium. Won’t have to wait 2+ months to buy it

  • bryson

    i just want terminal, highrise and the intervention back

  • J Galluzzo

    shipment, strike, crash, terminal, highrise

  • http://www.facebook.com/labr4t Sam Atherton

    Get me wasteland and underpass (or any other maps with GRASS) and I’ll be as happy as Chunt McCuddlestein.

    • DannyCool69

      Sniper alert. LOL.

  • Krazymississippi

    Favela sucks balls highrise is better new maps would be wayyyyyy better!!!!!!!!!!

    • DannyCool69

      Favela sucks balls big time, and I think Highrise is one of the best COD maps ther is.

      Bring back HIGHRISE Damn it.

  • Deadman_inc10

    M40A3!!

  • Tmshalo

    would love to see overgrown. i know it was already brought back in mw2 but i just love that map. most mw3 maps are not very good the need to bring back old maps or else we wont have any good maps.

  • Wolfhunter

    wii needs new maps too

  • Sky

    Fuuuu why dont they make Elite 4 PC?????

  • Austin0217

    i want new maps on wii you always put us last so forget you guys im not buying any more cod games

  • PALINKAS 7

    that music should have been MW3′s theme

  • Mark

    They should release all the maps from MW and MW2.  It can’t be that hard surely.  It would be great to have such an expansive map list to play from.  I also wish they would add a playlist editor so you can choose which maps you want to play depending on what you are in the mood for.  Since the new maps went live for non Elite members you hardly get them in the rotation, to play them you still have to go to the Elite playlist.  Still, it is wishful thining as they are all about $$$ and not the community.

  • Niek

    We want intervention !!! we love trickshotting <3 come on!
