- Today Infinity Ward Creative Strategist Robert Bowling
has detailed the Modern Warfare 2 Resurgence Pack
Tour for PS3, which is now live on PlayStation Network.
To quote: The second game add-on for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is now available on PSN, and brings with it five additional multiplayer maps, including some of the most unique and awesome places you'll ever have a firefight.
As always, we're focused on bringing a little something for everyone in the Resurgence Package. Take Carnival, a desolate and large amusement park that's perfect for objective gametypes and offers some amazing vantage points atop the wooden roller coaster "Dragon's Den" or the looming sniper spot positioned high above "The World Of Tomorrow."
This place is like nothing you've ever seen in multiplayer before, with distinct locations all around the map which are perfect for calling out enemy positions and working tactically with your team.
Fuel is a sniper's haven in this massive desert oil refinery with wide-open areas and extremely long sightlines. If you're running and gunning, stick to the buildings in the center or take the underground tunnel route to get out to the snipers in the surrounding rocks and oil pumps.
Trailer Park is maze of thin sheet metal fencing, torn up trailer units, and cluttered recreation areas. Trailer Park is ideal for the FMJ mod, and offers some insane Headquarters matches due to the soft cover points and thin walls that surround the objectives. We've also brought back two more fan favorite and classic Call of Duty 4 maps; Vacant and Strike.
We've made some key tactical changes to both maps that veteran Call of Duty 4 players will pick up and start taking advantage of immediately. Such as the opening of the back room by Objective point C in the marketplace on Strike, and the now more accessible top floor of the flower shop overlooking the main street.
On Vacant, the back gate of the office complex that leads to the hallway will now be open on specific gametypes like Demolition to give the defending team a faster route to the objective.
That's just a bit of the new details you're about to discover when you jump online and start exploring the five new locations the Resurgence Package adds to Modern Warfare 2. You'll also notice we've changed up the playlists to introduce some new game modes and accommodate the new maps.
You can now choose to play exclusively on the new Resurgence maps by choosing one of the two Resurgence playlists at the bottom. Just like last time, Resurgence and Hardcore Resurgence offers a variety of game modes to play. We've also introduced two completely new mosh-pit style playlists called "Barebones Pro" and "Objective Barebones Pro" which both have Killstreak Rewards disabled.
So set up a new create a class, strip off Cold Blooded because you won't be needing that, and see what it's like to go head-to-head with no air support to worry about.
Most importantly though, let us know what you think. We'll continue to change up the playlists based on YOUR feedback. So if there is a gametype variant or cool combination you'd like to see in a future playlist update, be sure to follow me on Twitter (@fourzerotwo) to keep track of those changes and let us know your thoughts!
