World At War Map Pack 1 Tops One Million Downloads
Treyarch really stepped it up with Call of Duty: World at War last year, and the fans have been happy ever since. And, as they often say, the proof is in the pudding...or in this case, the numbers.
According to GamersDigest, Activision has announced that there have been over 1 million downloads of the World at War Map Pack 1, and it managed to reach this impressively lofty plateau in only its first weekend of availability! This pack contains four new maps (Nightfire, Station, Knee Deep and Verruckt) and if you haven't yet had the pleasure, you can pick it up on the PlayStation Network for $9.99, or on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points. Said Treyarch Studio lead Mark Lamia:
"I'm proud that the team at Treyarch delivered an experience that so many people are enjoying. We're excited that the success of Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 1 will continue to drive the popularity of the games Nazi Zombie mode, competitive multiplayer and chart-breaking success online."
There's no doubt that Treyarch produced a winner last year, and although some will say it didn't quite leap over the very high bar set by Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, most will admit that World at War could very well be the best WWII shooter ever. At the very least, there are already over a million people who enjoy the experience enough to fork over a little more cash. Hey, it'll get you more gameplay, so what's the problem?
