Activision has given a semi-formal announcement that you can expect to see new maps brought to you for Call of Duty 4 throughout the year in form of downloadable content. These new maps are both in development for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 console. Call of Duty 4 lead all games in units sold worldwide according to NPD and it comes as no surprise that Activision plans to continue the playing experience in this fashion.
With the recently announced user-created content contest revolving around COD4 and its map availability, it is nice to see that the development team isn’t leaving everything up to the fans. These new maps are going to be launching players into new global warfare zones all around the world.
“We’ve demonstrated our commitment to delivering the best multiplayer experience in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and that continues with our plans for new downloadable content,” explains Infinity Ward’s Community Manager, Robert Bowling. “We’re excited about the new maps, and the added gameplay variety, and we can’t wait to wrap things up and get online with everyone.”
There is no official date as to when to expect these additions to one of the better games released in 2007, however, PSU.com will keep you up to date as more info is given regarding release.
Editors Note: This is a separate announcement from that of the contest being ran by Infinity Ward where users will create their own maps.
