Hey, remember how we always say Call of Duty DLC is overpriced? Well
are reporting that Activision have just launched a
great big sale
, offering 50% any Black Ops or Modern Warfare 3 Map Pack for the next week. That takes the price down from an exorbitant £11.49/$14.99 to a much more reasonable £5.74/$7.49.
There's something else to, a portion all sales will go to the
Call of Duty Endowment
, a charity launched by Activision back in 2009 that helps veterans find jobs when their tours of duty are over.
The full list of discounted DLC is as follows:
Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike
Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation
Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation
Call of Duty: Black Ops Rezurrection
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Content Collection 1
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 content collection 2
Activision have long been seen as the 'Evil Empire' by gamers, but this is a good thing. £5.74 is a much more sensible price for a map bundle than £11.49. And money going to charity is a nice thing.

We liked Rezurrection best. It has moon zombies.
