Activision is getting ready to release the First Strike pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops in just about two weeks. To build the hype and satisfy the thirst of some, Activision went ahead and created a video preview of everything you should expect of this upcoming $15 download-able content.
Dan Bunting, Treyarch Online Director, promises more sniping opportunitis and more “verticality” in these new multiplayer maps, titled Kowloon, Discovery, Berlin Wall, and Stadium. Some new features coming alone with these maps are the ability to use a zipline and destroy bridges, among other things.
Lucky for Xbox 360 gamers, Activision and Microsoft announced a new agreement at this past E3 that will make Call of Duty DLC timed Xbox exclusive until 2012. The PlayStation 3 and PC fan-base will have to wait a couple of months after the release. This is a no-doubt win for Microsoft, and will likely result in another cash cow and possible record breaker.
Call of Duty World at War will be seeing it’s 3rd Map Pack on the PC some time next week.
The Map Pack 3 will be coming with the standard multiplayer settings such as Battery, Nazi Zombies, and Breach and Revolution. Best of all, for PC users, they get it for free, unlike us console users will have to actually pay for this. This will all be included in Patch 1.6.
Not only that, they expect a simultaneous release of the Mod Tools 1.4 package, as well as some exploit and issue fixes included. The patch will include the extra maps, all the fixes, and everything you’d need. You can visit the official website if you’re interested in full details for the Call of Duty World at War Map Pack 3.
A lot of Nintendo Wii owners were complaining about the lack of love shown by Infinity Ward, since they haven’t gotten the chance to get a Modern Warfare port yet. Well, never say never, I suppose. Activision announced that they will be releasing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to the Nintendo Wii coming this November. The release will be coming along with it’s successor, Modern Warfare 2 on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a port of the hit FPS Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare released way back in 2007. The Wii version of this game is expected to arrive on November 10th of this year, and this sounds like great news for all of you Call of Duty fans on the Wii. Treyarch, the developers of Call of Duty: World at War, will be handling the development of the port to the Wii. Activision is also expected to comment about this announcement some time tomorrow.
Call of Duty 4 was the lastest entry in the Call of Duty franchise to skip the port to the Wii, and it seems that Activision is going to be fixing that. It was also announced earlier this week that another entry into the franchise, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized, will be making it’s entry onto the Nintendo DS.
The release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on the Nintendo Wii is good news, they are tapping into a whole new audience now. Allowing for innovative gameplay with the Wii motion controller. Some people think that Activision is just milking the Call of Duty series out, but I don’t think so. I’ve heard complaints since the release of the first Multiplayer video release of Modern Warfare 2 about the absence of a Call of Duty 4 port to the Wii. Don’t look at this as Activision milking the series, look at it as Activision trying to please another gaming audience by allowing them to enjoy what the Call of Duty series has to offer.
First off, the game introduces you to the Nazi zombies gameplay. Which is rather self explanatory because you are killing Nazi zombies. But, coming in June, Activision and Treyarch is bringing a little something new to the table. To come with the 2nd Map Pack to be released for the hit FPS Call of Duty: World at War.
The Zombie Swamp (Shi No Zuma) is this Map Packs new experience that brings you into a swamp with dead Japanese troops rising for revenge apparently. A misty swamp environment fitting for the Japanese to sneak up on and take advantage of you in. This level will feature perk machines, traps, flaming hell hounds and the new Wunderwaffe DG-2.
This map pack also introduces 3 more multiplayer maps and the one new zombie map pack introduced above. You’ll be battling in a Russian Trainyard in Corrosion, fighting close quarters in Sub Pens, and fighting for controlof a bridge in Banzai. This map pack sounds pretty fun for those with Call of Duty World at War already. The new Zombie map sounds fun to play, killing Japanese Zombies in a misty forest, sounds like a fun time to me.
