Publisher Activision had released the Variety Map Pack downloadable content (DLC) for “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered” as a timed exclusive for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC just last month. However, the DLC for the remastered game is more expensive than the original maps, resulting to complaints.

The Variety Map Pack DLC, as listed in the official “Call of Duty” website, can be purchased for US$14.99 (AU$19.83) across all three platforms. It includes four remastered multiplayer maps from the original game. The DLC features the remastered Broadcast, Chinatown, Creek and Killhouse. However, it costs five dollars more than the original content added in “Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.”

Aside from the four remastered maps from the original game, the Variety Map Pack DLC also includes 10 rare supply drops. These are guaranteed unique cosmetic items that can be unlocked through gameplay or with real money. Although the new DLC costs only five dollars more, users at Reddit are complaining at how the pricing is not justifiable.

However, the recent Steam release of the DLC for the PC costs free for some players since it was sponsored by Nvidia. Previous remastered games by other developers usually include all DLCs released for the original game.

Recently, remastered games by Bethesda Softworks, Naughty Dogs and 2K Games have included their respective DLCs in the releases. However, Activision did it differently for “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered.”

Previous Modern Warfare Remastered DLC release

Activision released a paid DLC during the initial launch. It just had the same content as the first one, but with better graphics. Although some users at Reddit think this is a greedy tactic by the publisher, many are still buying the contents since it has a huge player base.

The game has always received negative remarks from most players, with many alleging that it just became a money-making scheme from the publisher. It goes the same for the previously released “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare,” when Activision offered the “Legacy Edition” for US$80 (AU$105.88), which is the only way to purchase the game.

Activision has not yet released a statement regarding the “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” DLC, but it seems unaffected from all the criticism. Those interested can purchase the game on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC with the Legacy Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition of “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.”
