Modern Warfare 2 'Stimulus' DLC Hits PC

As previously promised by publisher Activision, the downloadable "Stimulus Package" add-on for Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is now available on PC.

The $14.99 add-on, sold via Steam on PC, brings five more multiplayer maps to the popular shooter. Three of those maps--Bailout, Storm and Salvage--are new, with the other two--Crash and Overgrown--returning from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

PlayStation 3 owners will be able to purchase the $14.99 add-on later today in North America and tomorrow in Europe, per the console's weekly PlayStation Store updates.

In celebration, "Infinity Ward will host nearly a week of Double XP for PlayStation Network and PC gamers May 4 - 9," publisher Activision noted in today's press release.

Released on Xbox 360 in March 2010, the "Stimulus Package" add-on was a timed exclusive for the console and shattered several records following its release. A second add-on is also in the works, and will likewise be available to Xbox 360 players first.

      $13.50 is still too much to pay for a $5.00 map pack.

          Loaded you say?
          I offer you the Lazy Gamer Stimulus Package.
          You can kill me all you want on any game for the low, low price of only $199.99 a week.
          It's an exclusive item only available to those who can afford it.

      Rofl. You got scammed again. Oh and by the way, you can say that 13.50 isn't a lot when you don't have a job. When you get one you really think twice about whether or not a game company is trolling you.
