The time when PC-gamers would receive content updates free of charge appears to be nearing its end, as the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 “Stimulus Package” apparently will cost $15 for PC-users as well. Paid DLC has been common on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 for several years, but if similar content made it to the PC, gamers on this platform would generally receive it free of charge. Similar map packs for previous Call of Duty installments were free for PC-users, while console users were charged for the same content.
The Stimulus Package, which will be released for Playstation 3 and PC on May 4th will cost $15, but is currently available with a 10% discount on Steam. The package includes 5 new maps, two of which are remakes of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare-classics. The content was already launch for the Xbox 360 on March 30th.
