Call of Duty: World at War PS3 Map Pack 1 & Nazi Zombie Trailer

50°
289w 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 (Verr├╝ckt) 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...

Mirror's Edge Exclusive FREE Time Trial Map Available Tomorrow

50°
296w ago - Mirror's Edge Producer Tom Farrer reminds us today that the release of the free and exclusive PlayStation 3 Time Trial map hits PSN tomorrow, and shares some of his thoughts on it as follows:

When we started Mirror's Edge we were working with abstract environments, quick test levels that we threw together so we could mess around with the moves.

Then came the game and the more realistic urban settings which were a lot of fun to work with but there was always a little voice in the back of our minds saying, "Remember when you could build any bizarre shape you wanted?"

We have been making a variety of maps for the upcoming release of the Pure Time Trial Map Pack. We didn't want to be limited by an urban setting; we wanted to "leave the city behind" and focus completely on the nature of movement itself.





The maps are all about exploring the purity of the core gameplay with nothing getting in the way.

Each map is quite different in style and had different inspirations. The look of the Sony-exclusive map "Synethesia" (that will be released separately and for free tomorrow, January 29th) was actually inspired by balloons of all things. However, we did decide to settle on an overriding theme – If Faith...
 

Gears of War 2 for XBox 360 Map Pack Backlash Ensues

50°
302w ago - At the Spike TV VGA's, Epic Games announced that a new Map Pack would be available for purchase on XBox Live that night. For most games this would be a good thing.

For Epic's new Gears of War 2 and its "broken multiplayer" (as dubbed by some) the news created an instant backlash. Gears 2 was released just a little over a month ago to rave reviews and huge sales.

Initially fans seemed pleased, but quickly a growing number of gamers began to complain of Multiplayer glitches that affected the game so much that some considered the multiplayer broken.

One example that is commonly heard is, enemies being able to basically sit on respawning spots and kill their opponents over and over again. Some fans have been left to stew in anger. Last nights announcement was like putting salt in wound. Message boards instantly started to see chatter of anger at Epic.

The consensus is that Epic should have fixed the problems before releasing any new Map Packs. Another point of anger was the fact that the game just came out. Many Xbox 360 gamers share the point of view that these maps should have just been included in the games release.

Meanwhile there has been no word out of Epic Games on these matters. It may be sad to say, but this type of thing is becoming all too relevant in...
