Guess I haven't played Modern
Warfare 2 in too long...a map pack dropped while I wasn't paying attention. On
Thursday, a new 5-map pack called Resurgence came out. Like the Stimulus pack
from a few months ago, it once again contains five multiplayer maps, three new,
two recycled from the first Modern Warfare. And again like Stimulus, it's priced
at 1200 Microsoft points, or about 15 bucks US, 500 NT. I never got the first
pack, and won't be getting the second either. Pretty much done with Modern
Warfare multiplayer, even though I never hit level 70, even for the first time.
Still, I know a lot of people are still shooting it up each night, this may
liven up their games even further. So far, Resurgence is only available for the
360, PC and PS3 versions will be out some point in the future.
fans of Red Dead Redemption, which came out a few weeks ago and which I believe
is still sold out island wide, free content is coming your way. Rockstar has
announced the "Outlaws To The End" Co-op mission pack, which should be available
on the 22nd. Lots of free goodies in this one...six new co-op missions and
challenges, plus new achievements/trophies, and bonus multiplayer XP award. The
mission pack will be released simultaneously for both the 360 and the PS3, plus
Rockstar says they're going to do a game update later in the week to fix some
multiplayer bugs and stuff.
There may be something new in the works for
the Assassin's Creed series. A new image available at www.ubiworkshop.com shows
what looks like an Egypt-based Assassin. We don't know whether this will be a
new game or what, but Ubisoft has confirmed this tease is not related to the
upcoming Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood game. As for Brotherhood, which will
include a new single-player campaign featuring Ezio of number 2 plus a new
multiplayer mode, it's still slated for a Q4 release, no specifics
