Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has enjoyed quite a bit of success since its launch on October 25. The first-person shooter game has smashed Activision sales records, bringing in a staggering $600 million in its opening weekend alone. The game has also earned fairly strong reviews from critics, but it's also been the target of some criticism, with vocal fans complaining about the maps and how they don't seem to favor the classic "run and gun" style of Call of Duty multiplayer.
Luckily for fans who aren't too crazy about the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare map design, it seems some old-school favorites will be making their return in the future. Frequent Call of Duty news leaker TheGamingRevolution has posted a new video that claims to leak the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare DLC maps, which largely consist of fan favorite multiplayer maps from past Modern Warfare games.
Even though TheGamingRevolution has been correct with his Call of Duty leaks in the past, fans should still take this news with a grain of salt. It's possible that TheGamingRevolution's information is off, or that Infinity Ward's plans will change. Regardless, here are the leaked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare DLC maps:
- Wet Work (6v6)
- Terminal (6v6)
- Crash (6v6)
- Vacant (6v6)
- Broadcast (6v6)
- Scrapyard (6v6)
- Rust (6v6 and Gunfight)
- +4 Ground War Maps
- +3 Gunfight Maps
Some of these leaked Call of Duty: Modern Warfare DLC maps have been rumored before, so it's no surprise to see them brought up again here. Two that may be one of the most interest to fans of the franchise is the potentially returning Terminal, one of the most popular maps from Modern Warfare 2, and the supposed return of Rust. Rust in particular is an interesting map, as TheGamingRevolution claims it will be featured in two different game modes.
If TheGamingRevolution's information is accurate, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players will be able to play Rust in the standard 6v6 mode, in addition to the 2v2 Gunfight mode. This makes sense since Rust is such a small map, though it begs the question why some of the other Gunfight maps aren't in the regular rotation. After all, one of the most common complaints about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's maps is that they're too big, so that seems like a way Infinity Ward could appease some fans.
In the meantime, it looks like the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare DLC will also include at least four more Ground War maps and three more Gunfight maps (whether or not that counts Rust is unclear). What shape these maps will take remains to be seen, but at least fans can rest assured knowing that they will get all of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare DLC maps for free.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
