Activision unveils non-traditional World at War DLC

Daniel Suarez, Executive Producer for Call of Duty: World at War, has revealed that Activision intends to publish "two, maybe three" downloadable content packs for the best-selling World War II shooter.

In a phone chat with MTV, Suarez promised that World at War would get far more post-release material than Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (which has received one – and but the one – map pack so far). "We want to do at least – the hope is – potentially two, maybe three packs out before we’re all said and done," he said.

Suarez kept his lips sealed as to the nature of that content, commenting only that Activision would make further announcements shortly after New Year. He went on to suggest, however, that the World at War DLC would break from convention. “It’s not going to be what we’ve done traditionally. I’ll leave it a little bit mysterious.”

Developed by Call of Duty veterans Treyarch, World at War is the fifth entrant in the series. It hit shelves in November to considerable acclaim from consumers and critics alike, and the multiplayer mode has proved a popular choice over PlayStation Network.
