Modern Warfare Remastered lands free maps and modes next week


Plus a festive take on Crash

Seeing map names like Bloc, Countdown, Pipeline, Showdown, Strike, and Wet Work brings back fond but perhaps overly-competitive memories of late nights spent with Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

On December 13, Modern Warfare Remastered will get those six aforementioned maps, plus the Hardpoint and Gun Game modes introduced in later series entries. That’s all coming for free, thankfully. Raven Software is also planning a chilly holiday makeover for Crash in time for Christmas.

If you’d rather skip the trailer for whatever reason, here’s a quick visual refresher on those maps:

With the recent discounts on Infinite Warfare, I almost went for that blasted Legacy Edition package as a way (well, the way) to play Modern Warfare Remastered. Almost. But I’ve got enough multiplayer shooters to keep me busy between Overwatch, Battlefield 1, and Titanfall 2 that I can and will bide my time until that sucker goes standalone or the bundle drops even lower in price.
