Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package Details

Last week, Infinity Ward and Activision announced that a new map pack called the "Stimulus Package" for Modern Warfare 2 would be released on March 30.

The Modern Warfare 2 Stimulus Package will be exclusive to Xbox Live on release and will cost 1200 Microsoft Points ($15). The length of exclusivity was not mentioned. Five maps are going to be included: three brand new and two from Modern Warfare that have been "slightly reworked" according to Infinity Ward.

The new maps are called Bailout, Storm, and Salvage. Bailout takes place in a modern-day, burned-out apartment complex. Storm is a weathered industrial park littered with heavy machinery. Salvage is a snowy junkyard fortified by stacked debris and crushed cars.

The two maps that make a return from Modern Warfare are Crash and Overgrown. Infinity Ward didn't make any major geography changes to the maps.

Here is a video with some really bad watermarks, better watch while you can.
