This Sunday Xbox Live’s Major Nelson released his weekly podcast. One of his guests this week was Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling. On the show Bowling divulged some new information about the upcoming DLC. We recently released the playlist data that was found on the Xbox Live Marketplace listing on Saturday.
Bowling elaborated on the inclusion of the old maps from Call of Duty 4 : Overgrown & Crash. Both were said to have “improved graphics” and “upgraded features from MW2” but also stated that there were no “Geo changes” to the maps. Also included in the upcoming DLC, Infinity Ward will be patching in some other new playlists and gamemodes. “New Hardcore modes” were mainly mentioned as well as new maps rotations for existing modes.
In the interview Bowling also addressed Modern Warfare 2’s recent achievement of 25 million unique users claiming that the “the majority of these users are from Xbox Live”. This could give some insight as to why the Xbox 360 players might get access to this downloadable content ahead of gamers on other platforms.
