Activision Teases "Mysterious" DLC For Call Of Duty: World At War

These days, gamers have come to expect downloadable content as a matter of course, especially when it comes to the next-gen FPSs. Activision is well aware of this, and it seems they've got something big planned for Call of Duty: World at War.

As revealed by the MTV Multiplayer blog, World at War executive producer Daniel Suarez said the team is currently working on a ton of DLC for the game that will "exceed the single multiplayer map-pack offered for Modern Warfare earlier this year." As Suarez said, "we want to do at least - the hope is - potentially two, maybe three packs out before we're all said and done." We can expect details just after the New Year, but don't expect the same ol' same ol' from these guys; Suarez teased us with the comment that the DLC won't be of the traditional or typical kind. He wants to infuse an aura of mystery into this upcoming content, and we have to say...he has succeeded. For the record, four multiplayer maps were released five months after Modern Warfare launched, so now we're wondering what this mysterious new direction for the World at War DLC might be... Perhaps it'll be something unique and/or more significant than the DLC we've become used to over the past year or so.

Anyway, we're also wondering what you might want to see in terms of DLC for this excellent FPS. It may not quite have reached the level of Modern Warfare, but remember, developers can do a lot for a game with new content. Just look at Criterion and Burnout Paradise!

I would like to see some more guns personally, other than that I have no preference for downloadable content.

On a seperate note, Am I blind or is this the first post in PS3 news that John Shepard has made?

I have only been coming to this site for a couple of weeks and whenever I would look at the name of the author it was either Ben or Arnold

No, I won't be duped in spending anything extra on DLC content unless it is "exceptional"... 2 reasons... KILLZONE 2 and, possibly, CODVI.

As has been stated here before; I think CODV, whilst good, with a tweak here and there, could have been released for half the price as a CODIV MOD...

CODV is a good game, have enjoyed the multi-player; that said I haven't played the single player campaign yet which I will do - later; but nothing revolutionary.

With regards to graphic quality, especially the textures, the engine is iffy in some places, texture quality and resolution can be poor for certain objects/surfaces.

So far engines which I think have better graphics are TimeShift (a very underrated game - and one I should have bought instead of CODV), Bad Company (nice crisp graphics at 1080p) and Killzone 2 stand apart.

Generally CODIV and CODV have their moments of "brilliance" but I feel let down that the engines aren't pumping out crisp visuals at 1080p, which in turn would make the textures look that much better; sharper and deeper.

Difference is if I were running these on a PC at least the ability to up the resolution and modify these games using so much free content out there is a better deal in the long run...

Q!

Does World at War even count as CoD5?

Considering Killzone 2 is coming out in February 09 it will be interesting to see how this DLC will do.

Add DLC for Nazi Zombies, that game is incredibly addictive, and rocks co-op.
