Two interesting notes, really, about the DLC for MW2 that come out of this interview with Rob Bowling of Infinity Ward.
One, IW is sticking to the misplaced idea that the map pack is properly priced. As an employee, Mr. Bowling can’t really say anything else, I suppose. But as a matter of fact, Mr. Bowling thinks that the price could be $1000 and you’d still think it’s worth it:
A lot of people think they should be getting the old maps for free. Don’t you think 1200 MSP is a little bit expensive for what is essentially three new maps?
I have no doubt that anyone who downloads this map pack is going to get their money’s worth. They’re going to feel their investment is worthwhile. Because if you’re playing Modern Warfare 2 like myself or many other people do every night, that’s actually going to give you a bunch of new mileage and a bunch of extra gameplay – to really explore and discover them and to really, you know, come up with new tactics and experience them in a whole new way. Regardless of what the price is you’re going to feel your money’s well-spent.
Two, there’s going to be at at least one more DLC pack. I hope it’s $15 too, so that I can spend half the price of the original game just on two pieces of DLC:
So the direction for Stimulus appears to be filling gaps in the needs of the community then? Is this going to be carried through to future content during this generation of Modern Warfare?
We’re definitely going to do at least one more DLC pack, but the direction of it and specifically what we’re going to do hasn’t been determined yet.
So there you have it.
Do you play MW2? If so, will you buy the DLC?
