Perfect Dark Zero unmapped

Microsoft jumps the gun on announcement of downloadable levels for Rare's first-person shooter; map pack not yet available.


Reports around the Web that a selection of new maps for Perfect Dark Zero had gone up on Xbox Live Marketplace today were mistaken. Microsoft issued a mass e-mail that claimed the game's Map Pack #1 was available on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 500 points ($6.25), but it was quickly countered by Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb.

"You can stop looking on Marketplace, because the map pack is not there," Hryb wrote on his blog. "Apparently the email went out before the maps were ready."

When it is released, the pack will contain four new multiplayer maps: Plaza, Trench, Rooftops, and Gas Plant. Gamers who can't wait for the pack's official release can still get a preview of it by downloading the game's single-player demo, which includes the Plaza map.
