COD3 Map Pack deployed, KIA

Five new downloadable maps for Call of Duty 3 go up on Xbox Live, but those who download it encounter problems; developer working to resolve issues.


Last week, Activision whet gamers' appetites with the release of a new multiplayer map for the Xbox 360 game Call of Duty 3. Cybersoldiers welcomed the new map partly because it provided a new battlefield to shoot up, but mostly because it was free.

Activision is hoping enough interest was drummed up by the free map to convince gamers to pony up $10 for an additional five battlegrounds. The publisher today announced that it has released the Valor Map Pack over Xbox Live for 800 Microsoft Points.

The pack includes five new multiplayer maps created by COD3's developer Treyarch. Unfortunately for gamers who own the game on other platforms, the maps are exclusive to the Xbox 360 version.

However, those who were ready to rush into battle found their new tour of duty put on hold. Treyarch has come forward and revealed that there are problems with map pack, but did not go into greater detail.

"We understand that there are problems with the Valor map pack once it is downloaded--we are working closely with Microsoft on this right now, and we will have the issue resolved as soon as we possibly can," a post on reads. "Please hold tight, and I will follow up with an update as soon as we're closer to a solution."
