Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package DLC (Updated)

* Updated 3/14 - Infinity Ward has now officially confirmed the rumors that have been swirling about for weeks now.  Check out fourzerotwo on Major Nelson's podcast for official verification (forward to 49:40 for MW2 info) - LINK *

* Updated 3/13 - Xbox Live now has the Stimulus Package placeholder link up on the XBL Marketplace.  Along with this link is a description of the 5 maps that will be in the first map pack (3 new maps, 2 CoD4 maps).  Details below. (via @boyle111)

* Updated 3/10 - Stimulus Package video below.  A reliable source has filled us in that this DLC pack will cost 1200 MS Points aka $15.00. *

* UPDATE  - Another working video has been added for your viewing pleasure.  Activision did confirm today that the first map pack is titled "Stimulus Package" (LINK).  Enjoy! *

"The best-selling Xbox 360 game of all-time just got bigger, with more epic multiplayer content, first on Xbox LIVE! The Stimulus Package delivers 5 additional action-packed multiplayer maps featuring a variety of locations: "Bailout," a multi-level apartment complex; "Storm," an open industrial park littered with heavy machinery; "Salvage," a snowy junkyard fortified by stacked debris and crushed cars. Two legendary fan-favorites from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare return, including "Crash," a war-torn urban environment; and "Overgrown," which features a massive dry creek bed." - LINK

As you can see, some of the map names have obviously changed from the time that this video was leaked.  Those changes (as seen on the XBL Marketplace link) look to be that Complex has changed to Bailout, and Compact has been changed to Salvage.  


  1. Looks nice. Can't wait for some offical details

  2. I thought it was fake until the end when they had the actual video. Can't wait!

  3. im sorry, but "draw; host ended game?" what?

  4. looks fake, even though there are slight changes, new turrets, and all that, the textures on the COD4 maps just dont look right, i mean if they where gonna tweak them by adding different stuff dont you think they would smooth over the textures and all that to at least make them look graphically like the MW2 maps?

  5. I smell a fake.

    Anyone else notice the,


    Host Ended Game

    1 - 0"

    text on Crash? That smells of CoD4 to me ...

    Not saying that these maps won't eventually be part of a pack, but this just looks fake.

  6. guys its a private match cause you cant play these maps online yet which is why it says host ended game

  7. some of what I saw I've seen in the first Modern Warfare, the first one that comes up is the one where the Helicopter is in the middle of the map and you can go to the 3rd floor of the building with the fence lining it. see for yourselves.

  8. lol i knew that vid was a fake :P unless IW plan to release two more maps after that :O

  9. Jack...the video is real. Those are the maps we'll be receiving in just a couple weeks.

  10. The maps are fun but not AS FUN as I though they would be. Still keeps it interesting though instead of having to play the same maps over and over again.
