Two new Modern Warfare 2 DLC trailers hit, one funny, one violent

Modern Warfare 2's first DLC, the Stimulus Package, arrives on Xbox Live on the 30th of March. It comprises five multiplayer maps (three brand new, two from Call of Duty 4), and as internet flame-rage has probably already brought to your attention, it clocks in at 1200 Microsoft Points. To whet your appetite, Inifinity Ward has dropped two new snacks for your eyeballs. And here they are.

First up is your common or garden gameplay trailer, showing off the new maps in all their rubble-bursting, UAV-jamming glory:

And then we've got the lighter-hearted approach, continuing IW's 'Mapathy' self-help gag. In it, 'Mapatrician' Dr. Kyle Bierman details just how the new map pack will ease the suffering of those afflicted with the mental degradation caused by camping the same old spots, day after day:

But what do you think? Will the Stimulus Package rekindle your love of CoD? Are new maps all you need in order jump merrily back into the fray? Or is the whole  Mapathy schick a bit rich for a 1200 Point pack comprising 40% recycled content? And is Battlefield: Bad Company 2 taking your attentions away from MW2 these days? Let us know in the comments, and through the official GR channels on Facebook and Twitter.

And be sure to tune back in at 3PM GMT today, when we'll have an interview with IW community honcho Robert 'Fourzerotwo' Bowling addressing some of these questions.

    Prob won't get the maps, but I must say the 'Mapathy' vid was pretty good!

    Not getting these maps, way too overpriced and I haven't played MW2 since the end of last year

    1200 Points??? and there will most likely be rediculus glitches that will once again drive people away.

    Fuck MW2.
  • Ridgley - March 25, 2010 5:51 p.m.

    I stopped playing MW2 a few weeks after release, but it's only 3 dollars a map. It's not really thaaat bad.
  • HaoS - March 25, 2010 3:12 p.m.

    Stopped playing MW2 as soon as BFBC2 came out, and not planing on putting the MW2 disc in my PS3 ever again.

    man do i h8 activision rite nw. however the mapathy vid was a bit funny. just nt 1200ms points funny. nw free BFBC2 maps, thats more like it reCAPTCHA: Government skirted they sure did...
  • CombatCat120 - March 25, 2010 12:18 p.m.

    These guys just showed how (ma)pathetic their multiplayer is and how much it sucks. While Bad Company 2's maps are waaay bigger and more fun, the best part, they can be obtained for the price of NOTHING!
  • FinderKeeper - March 25, 2010 11:59 a.m.

    Oh, it's a stimulus package all right... for Activision's budget. @ $15 a head, I'm sure Bobby K. is rubbing his hands together already. Maybe I should take him hunting. ;-)
  • Spydie4x4 - March 25, 2010 11:56 a.m.

    No FUCKING way I'm gonna pay 1200 points for 5 god damn maps, maybe.
  • LordSteven - March 25, 2010 11:15 a.m.

    1st question above all ! Will the mapathy disease ever be cured ? Or will we have to pay for regular treatments ?
