Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Remastered is finally getting some love on the Xbox One with the Variety Map Pack. The Variety Map Pack offers players four iconic DLC maps that Modern Warfare players on PC enjoyed for a long time. For $15.99 you'll unlock Broadcast, Chinatown, Creek, and Killhouse, as well as 10 rare "Operation Lion Strike" supply drops.
"The Variety Map Pack returns to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered with four more unforgettable multiplayer maps. Battle through the neon alleyways of Chinatown, dominate your opponents in the abandoned news station of Broadcast, snipe across the grassy ravine of Creek, and go all-out close-quarters in the chaotic training grounds of Killhouse."
Here's a brief rundown of the maps included:
- 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.
For our money, Chinatown and Broadcast are the two must-own maps in this pack. Creek is decent, but almost a little too sprawling for its own good. It's fun for those who love to snipe, but for run'n'gunners it can be a bit daunting -- or boring.
