MW3 DLC: Nostalgic Map pack – Release date listed, real or fake though?

We have some interesting news for those of you who are on the lookout for news regarding Infinity Ward’s first DLC content for Modern Warfare 3. A video has surfaced online suggesting the first DLC pack for the game will be the ‘Nostalgic’ map pack, but its authenticity has been called into question.

At the moment, the video is still online to view now and it claims that the Nostalgic Map Pack will release for Modern Warfare 3 on March 1st 2012, containing four remade maps from Call of Duty 4 and Modern Warfare 2. The four maps in question are Shipment and Crossfire from COD4, and Terminal and Favela from MW2.

The video shows apparent images of the remade maps in question with the MW3 engine, and although they look semi-legit, a lot of people are calling this a fake. A few reasons for this could be the choice of accompanying music behind the clip, and also the fact that this video still remains live on YouTube, when usually Activision would take down any leaked content in an instant.

Presuming the content is real though, do you like the idea of yet more remade maps for a new Call of Duty game? Perhaps more importantly, would you mind paying for these? If Infinity Ward does have a ‘Nostalgic’ map pack in the pipeline, then we’re guessing that it will be free to Elite subscribers as part of their promised DLC content. For everyone else though, this could be slapped with a 1500 Microsoft Point price tag.

Expanding on this thin rumor even more, we’ve seen that some of you are thinking that this map will come out on January 3rd instead of March 1st. Don’t forget that Activision previously listed their MW3 teaser videos as ‘11.8.11’, putting the month before the date. However, in the supposed leaked video below, there’s also ‘2012’ listed, which Activision are not common for putting either – just something to bear in mind as you ponder if this is real or not.

Check out the video below and let us know your thoughts on it, whether it is real or fake and whether you would mind waiting until March, AND paying for it.
