Mark Rubin, Executive Producer at Infinity Ward has revealed via twitter that Terminal, the popular airport map from Modern Warfare 2, will soon be available in Modern Warfare 3 absolutely free.
Terminal is currently undergoing Microsoft certification right now and official confirmation may not go public until Thursday or Friday. The map isn't confirmed to hit Xbox 360 first, but that is still an option. It may even drop as a title update, rather than a separate batch of DLC.
The Exec Producer has been extremely optimistic in the sense that the map will hit gamers within the next few weeks. He has been vocal to say that the map is ready to deploy but wants “everything to be ready” as there is still “lots to coord[inate]“. He confirms that the map will be out “as soon as [he] has a firm launch date” and “didn’t want to give people a [release] date and then change it on them”. Once they get “deployment issues” out the way, they will be able to confirm a definite release date.
As the Modern Warfare 3 engine is an upgraded MW2 engine, Terminal requires little gameplay changes other than checking to see if everything from MW3 works on the older-styled map – examples include the Assault Drone and if it could surpass the inflatable tube/stairs and to see if Strike Package rewards would work correctly. The art pass was to upgrade the map to look like a MW3 map – Mark Rubin answered a question about the changes, and mentioned that the tilting for ‘Burger Town’ has been changed from English to Russian characters to keep consistency and suit the environment.
