Arctic Strike DLC launches today for Future Soldier

Well, here's the first in what I can only assume will be a long series of DLC for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. The "Arctic Strike" pack is out today and includes three new multiplayer maps, a new Guerrilla co-op level, the "Stockade" multiplayer mode, six new weapons, added achievements, and a raise in the level cap of ten.

The name "Arctic Strike" is sort of misleading here, because you'd assume most (or all) of these levels would have something to do with snow. It turns out that only the Guerilla map is the snow level. Oh well, I'm down with any snow level at all, as I really am a sucker for them. Having said that, the other multiplayer maps are still a welcome addition, especially since what was already on the disc didn't feel like much. And for 800 Microsoft Points ($9.99 for PSN users), "Arctic Strike" seems like a great deal if you've been clamoring for more Future Soldier.
