Modern Warfare Remastered to Receive Call of Duty 4's Variety Map Pack

By Kelly Packard, 2 years ago
Not one to pass up an opportunity for DLC, Activision has announced they will be bringing Call of Duty 4's one and only map pack to Modern Warfare Remastered.

Known simply as "Variety Map Pack," the DLC added four new maps that were playable in multiplayer: Broadcast, Chinatown, Creek and Killhouse. It retailed for US$9.99. This time around, the maps will be in all of their remastered glory and 10 rare supply drops will be included for players to open in-game. With that, it's getting a price bump to US$14.99.


If you need a reminder of these four maps, Activision has released one remastered screenshot and a description for each:

Modern Warfare Remastered Variety Map Pack

Broadcast: Based on the TV station from the campaign mission “Charlie Don’t Surf”, this map provides a unique blend of confined corridors and wide-open spaces. Outside the station, the parking lot contains long sightlines, but once inside, cramped hallways and a computer-cluttered broadcast room provide ample close-range combat opportunities.

Chinatown: Set in a foggy downtown district, this nighttime map is lit up by flickering neon signs and a full moon. A re-imagining of the original Call of Duty multiplayer map “Carentan”, players will need to be careful on these streets, as almost every building in the map can be occupied, providing perfect cover for enemies waiting for a chance to line you up in their sights.

Creek: Set in a wide-open village ravaged by combat where concealment is the difference between life and death, a gaping ravine divides this map into two. Open clearings with sheer cliff faces and ample forested cover make this map ideal for snipers and long-range firefights.

Killhouse: A small training warehouse filled with various building mock ups that feature soft and hard cover points. Expect fast-paced and fierce firefights for maximum close-quarters chaos.
As is always the case this generation, Call of Duty DLC is a PlayStation first affair. The PS4 will be receiving the "Variety" maps on March 21st.
