World at War Getting More Zombies

Seeing as how popular the zombie-themed bonus level for Call of Duty: World at War is, Treyarch has announced that the next downloadable map pack for the game will include more zombie content.

“Yes, there will be a new wave of undead coming soon and–while we appreciate everyone’s concern (and we don’t condone vandalism)–we assure you that these zombies will only be found in the Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack," wrote a Treyarch community manager on the game’s official forums.

As expected, no release date or pricing details were offered.

World at War Outsells Predecessor

Surprising everyone, Treyarch’s Call of Duty: World at War has sold more than double on Call of Duty 4’s first week of UK sales.

The game hit two more platforms than its predecessor – PS2 and Wii – and has become a blockbuster hit across all platforms, including PS3, Xbox 360, PC, DS and PSP.

Neither sales figures nor per-console breakdown was provided for the game’s sales.

Series creator Infinity Ward is now working on Call of Duty 6 for release sometime next year.

World at War Sequel Announced

Following the success of the original World at War title, Matrix Games has announced Gary Grigsby’s World at War: A World Divided, a sequel offering spies, neutral country diplomacy, variable political events and various scenarios, among other features.

As with the original, the sequel will put players in the helm of one of the five major nations during the Second World War, managing supply lines, production, resources and troops. A World Divided will add the aforementioned features (and more), vastly changing the dynamics of play and let players be more flexible with their tactics. The game will also feature the all too common ‘what if’ scenario:

In addition to the new features in Gary Grigsby’s World At War: A World Divided is a completely new ‘what-if’ scenario that carries forward from the end of the war into a conflict between the Western Allies and the Soviet Union. Russia’s massive and experienced army is up against the West’s well equipped forces and industrial might. In addition to simply starting with this scenario, players have the option to jump right from the end of their normal campaign game of WWII into this alternate history. This creates a whole new set of strategic choices as players will have to think into the future and plan for their war against the other super-power while still fending off the Axis forces.

A World Divided will include four tutorials, three campaigns and five different scenarios. No release date was mentioned.
