Well, it can be argued that Fort CoOp can be considered a map pack, but I'm not gonna do that now since I'm on mobile.
1 + 1 = 3

Here's the thing:
Pack: a group of people or things
The Fort Co-Op map contained an adventure map that had a storyline, 3 new characters to play as in Co-Op adventure, and introduced a new enemy type.
If this map pack included, let's say, only the Sanctuary Map, then yes, it was a misleading title.
This could be used in ND's defense.
Is it a weak defense? Sure
Will it make ND look like sly and guile, in a bad way? Yes
Do I support the way they handled the fourth map pack, as in it led us to believe that the map pack would contain 4 seperate competitive maps? No
Do I regret buying the Fortune Hunters' Club? No, because I would have ended up buying all the DLC regardless. This just saved me money, paying $25 instead of $60.
In conclusion, ND knew they **bleep** up with the co-op map, which resulted on the outrage on NeoGaf and the UC3 forum. Nevertheless, it can be argued in their defense, but ND were smart in refraining in doing so in this manner.
If you're interested on how Arne handled the situation:

ND is greedy. They'll probably advertise using great beta footage of the game, and then give us a turd in a disc.
I guess that's why they didn't release a beta for TLOU MP!
Too bad that it will probably be unbalanced as hell...
