Has there ever been a modern Call of Duty game DLC pack that didn't have its contents "leaked" by a GameSpot poster/insert/advertisement?

Those all look pretty cool, as far as you can tell from those tiny images.

I'm happy to be getting a new weapon(s?) and another extinction map too.

How so?

I've never played COD online so I'm interested in the non-map pack stuff they used to do.

Wonder what AR and sniper means?

Is it the same weapon but two different styles in each category?

It is, but the mission is point of contact. Nightfall is new.

Yeah, I enjoy Zombies and now extinction, but they would never sell the maps individually

Really? Because I've bought a lot of COD DLC over the past 6 years and I don't recall new ideas, just new maps.

I think your post is a cookie cutter COD complaint from people who don't really enjoy these games, and that's ok, but that doesn't mean you need to manufacture reasons why it's now shitty.

Have weapons been included in past COD DLC's? I thought Black Ops 2 might have had some DLC weapons but I'm not sure because I barely touched the game after the first week I played it. In any case it seems like this could cause an unfair advantage if these can be used in multiplayer and if they perform significantly better than the weapons already in the game.

BLOPS 2 was the first COD with weapon DLC. I believe it was only one gun. It appears going forward weapon DLC will be a regular thing.

The peacekeeper that was BO2 DLC was an AR+SMG hybrid so I'm assuming this new gun will be the same.

Hopefully the maps are to a better standard than the ones that shipped, although I'm not holding my breath.

Well, a lot of the same developers make the DLC maps across all COD titles. Yes, Treyarch make maps, but Raven as well as Certain Affinity have made maps for Treyarch games and even IW-Joint developments. Now, they probably have High Moon Studios and Neversoft cranking out some maps.

Well they must be putting all their effort into every other release because blops 1 and 2 DLC is far superior to MW3 DLC and so far what we have seen of ghosts.

I stopped paying attention to BLOPS2 when they had the whole Nuketown tomfoolery, but this map seems like a cry for help from Neversoft.

I think season pass owners get the content the same time as people buying individual map packs. This doesn't work like Battlefield DLC does (I did buy the BOPS II DLC and it came out for everyone at the same time).

Black Ops 1 also had really good DLC maps.

Maybe it's because Treyarch is the superior COD company, I dunno!

Yeah, I guess that's it.

I suppose now that there are season passes they have to fall into the 4 maps + 1 zombie/Extinction map + an extra (such as a gun).

Whereas Treyarch almost had the Zombie maps on a whim, or a collection of them, with different amounts of maps.

Maybe if the port wasn't a colossal pile of shit more people would. I got news for you my friend, the CoD ship has sailed away from PC long ago.

You might want to look at the map names from all the way back to the first COD for PC. The names were always short and "unoriginal".

I'm feeling more inclined to get the Black Ops 2 season pass at this point. I like Extinction more than Zombies, but both are very much secondary modes to me. Multiplayer is where most of my time goes, and I just can't get into it with Ghosts.
