Modern Warfare 2 DLC Trailer Toots Its Own Horn

By Alice O'Connor, Mar 25, 2010 6:34am PDT A new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 trailer gives a look at the 'Stimulus Package' map pack downloadable content's five multiplayer maps release fast approaches.

We still can't decide whether the financial references were intended to be ham-handed political commentary. Still, Microsoft's Inside Xbox revealed in a video preview that the five maps--including two from Call of Duty 4--sure are places to shoot people dead.

The Stimulus Package will be available on Xbox 360 from March 30, priced at 1200 Microsoft Points ($15), before coming to PC and PlayStation 3 later. "At least" one more map pack is due for Infinity Ward's shooter, also initially exclusive to Xbox 360.

Infinity Ward co-founders Vince Zampella and Jason West are currently suing parent company and publisher for brand rights and royalties after they were sacked; Activision dismissed their claims as "meritless." The firings coincided with an announcement by Activision that the franchise is gaining another developer and entering new genres.
