247w ago - Treyarch Community Manager Josh Olin shared news of both the Call of Duty: World at War PS3 Map Pack 1 and a Nazi Zombie trailer today as follows:
Hey Call of Duty: WaW Nazi Zombie fans, the wait is over! We're releasing the first map pack for PSN today, March 19, and it includes a new Nazi Zombie Co-op level (Verrückt) that's got tons of new enhancements: Perks-a-Cola soda machines, electroshock defense systems and even more vicious zombies - all set in a creepy insane asylum which is based off of the multiplayer map, MP Asylum.
But it doesn't end with the zombies. We've also got 3 new multiplayer maps for you to raise hell in: Nightfire, Knee Deep and Station. "Nightfire" is all about fighting in a dark urban war-torn Berlin. While you dart in and out of shelled buildings, you've got the fires raging throughout the city as your only source of light.
"Knee Deep" is a Japanese-run command center in the middle of what used to be a quiet Peleliu village. On your way to taking over the command post, you'll be wading through jungle streams and fighting your way through fortified Japanese bunkers. This map works well for larger team games and objective matches.
Finally, "Station" offers a lot of variety, from close-range choke points to sweet hidden spots just waiting to be a home for that devastating sniper. It's a bombed-out underground train station, so you'll find yourself running through destroyed subway cars, hidden passageways, loading platforms and second-story overlooks.
We really hope you enjoy these new maps and welcome your questions and suggestions as we continue to work hard to make more great downloadable content for you in the future.
To kick off the launch of Map Pack 1, we're offering up a full week of double XP, starting today at 10am (PT) and ending Wednesday, March 25 at 10am (PT). Some of the team will also be playing online specifically from 1-5pm (PT) on Sunday, March 22, although you'll also be able to catch us throughout the weekend, so be sure to add our PSN IDs:
