Prepare For The Imminent Map Pack Announcement
Has Activision smuggled old Call of Duty maps in to Modern Warfare 3? It would appear so, with the site MP1ST diving in to the record-breaking shooter's code to discover old Modern Warfare 1 and 2 maps hiding away. Activision has made an absolute killing on Call of Duty map packs - and we can only blame ourselves for paying those extortionate prices - and it would appear a retro themed chunk of content is in the pipeline for MW3.
So, what old CoD maps have Activision smuggled in? Well, Modern Warfare fans will be pleased to see the likes of Crash, Strike and my personal overall favorite CoD map, Overgrown, hidden in code-form within MW3. The Modern Warfare 2 map, High Rise, has also been discovered. Both Crash, Strike and Overgrown were remastered for release on MW2, so it's a little disappointing to see Activision ostensibly pulling the same trick twice.
Why not release some Black Ops maps? On the subject of maps, Modern Warfare 3 is seriously lacking in solid, well-designed offerings. The staff fallout appears to have robbed Infinity Ward of their usually keen eye for map building, with MW3's map a mess of scattered landmarks and choke-points, in stark contrast to the polished work of MW2 and even Black Ops.
