Activision proudly announced that Call of Duty 2, a Xbox 360 launch title, has sold more than one million units in the US for the aforementioned console. According to NPD Funworld, the game is the best selling Xbox 360 title to date and is among the highest rated games for the platform.
The sequel, Call of Duty 3, is scheduled for release this November for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii.
Playing ninja for once, Activision silently announced the “Game of the Year” edition of Call of Duty 2 for the Xbox 360. The GOTY edition will include the original game along with the Skirmish Map Pack, two new multiplayer maps (400 points on Xbox Live) and bonus DVD containing making-of footage, historic interview, commentaries and mission walkthroughs from the developers at Infinity Ward.
It is now available throughout North America.
Just following Microsoft’s E3 Xbox Live announcement, Activision sent out word that Infinity Ward plans on releasing new content for Call of Duty 2 through Xbox Live.
A total of nine multiplayer maps will be released, with the first four maps available for download this Spring; playable versions will debut at E3 in Activision’s CoD2 Lounge (#1200, South Hall). The remaining five maps will be released in July.
The first two maps will be released for free – Vossenack and Wallender, Germany – with the Skirmish map pack (Kalach, Russia and Beaumont-Hague, France) going for 400 points when released.
July will see the second wave with the release of the Invasion Pack that will go for 900 points. It will be a multiplayer map pack featuring the following five maps: Antoville, France (Crossroads); St. Louet, France (Newvillers); Amaye sur Seulles, France (Normandy); Alam Halfa, Egypt (Decoytown); and Rostov, Russia (Harbor).
