There's just something about Nazi zombies that brings players out in droves, as the first Call of Duty: World at War map pack saw a million downloads during its first weekend of availability.
Call of Duty: World at War players flocked to the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace to download Nightfire, Knee Deep, Station, and Verrückt, the four new maps included in Map Pack 1. Between March 19th and March 22nd, more than a million players purchased the pack, which when converted to actual money equals around $10 million in sales.
"I'm proud that the team at Treyarch delivered an experience that so many people are enjoying," said Mark Lamia, Studio Head for Treyarch. "We're excited that the success of Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 1 will continue to drive the popularity of the game's Nazi Zombie mode, competitive multiplayer and chart-breaking success online."
In a separate press release, Microsoft revealed that Map Pack 1 had set a new record for first-week downloads via Xbox Live, with more that 150 million multiplayer sessions played since the pack was released.
Just another step closer to having my dream Call of Duty: Just Nazi Zombies game released. Fingers crossed!
