Powered by Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare technology, Call of Duty: World at War brings an uncensored edge to combat, as soldiers face the most harrowing and climactic European and Pacific battles in which an enemy, who knows no surrender and no retreat, will fight to the last breath, unleashing an arsenal of lethal surprising tactics. Peril and danger lurk throughout the battlefield as players combat the unknown risk of the new chaos of battle.

Call of Duty: World at War completely changes the rules of engagement by redefining WWII gaming and thrusting players into the final tension-filled, unforgiving battles against a new ferocious enemy in the most dangerous and suspenseful action ever seen. Treyarch will be taking Call of Duty players deep into the South Pacific and European theaters, a gritty fight that will pit players against enemies that know no surrender and show no mercy.

Powered by Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare technology, Call of Duty: World at War brings an uncensored edge to combat, as soldiers face the most harrowing and climactic European and Pacific battles in which an enemy, who knows no surrender and no retreat, will fight to the last breath, unleashing an arsenal of lethal surprising tactics. Peril and danger lurk throughout the battlefield as players combat the unknown risk of the new chaos of battle.

Call of Duty: World at War introduces co-operative play, bringing fresh meaning to the "No One Fights Alone" mantra with up to four-players online for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, or two-player local split-screen on consoles. Nintendo Wii will also support a unique co-op mode for two players. For the first time ever players will experience harrowing single-player missions together for greater camaraderie and tactical execution. The co-op campaign allows players to rank up and unlock perks in competitive multiplayer by completing challenges and earning experience points, adding continuous re-playability and team-based gameplay. Whether playing competitively or cooperatively – if players are online with Call of Duty: World at War – they will always gain experience points. Based on a player’s experience rank and rank of the player’s friends, Call of Duty: World at War will scale dynamically to provide a deeper level of challenge.

Players will fight through the burning streets of Berlin in “Nightfire,” take position in the deadly jungles of “Knee Deep” and carefully traverse the bombed out underground of “Station.” The Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 1 will also add another heart-pounding chapter to the four-player co-op Nazi Zombie mode with “Verrückt” (Zombie Asylum).

New Maps :

  • Nightfire: Fire-bombed Berlin provides the backdrop for “Nightfire,” an intense battlefield for mid to large-scale team games. Shelled buildings and ruins of the city provide coverage among the war-ravaged streets, and the flames of the burning city expose the enemy running through the night. Fight for your life knowing that this fiery urban battlefield may soon be your grave.
  • Station: ”Station” offers a bombed out underground train station littered with destroyed subway cars, hidden passageways, loading platforms and second story overlooks to use to your advantage against any number of enemies. Ideal for dominating Capture the Flag and other team games, this map provides you with a wide range of combat options from close range choke points to hidden sniper spots.
  • Knee Deep: “Knee Deep” takes place on the island of Peleliu in a once tranquil village turned chaotic Japanese command center. You and your squad will fight through the jungle, wading knee-deep in streams, in order to retrieve valuable intel and take battle positions in fortified Japanese bunkers all to secure an important communication center. The harsh jungles of “Knee Deep” are perfect for tactical team games and all-out assaults on multiple enemy positions.

Verrückt (Zombie Asylum)

The fan favorite 4-player co-op Nazi Zombies Bonus Mode returns with “Verrückt,” a terrifying Zombie asylum located in the outskirts of Berlin. Players are split into pairs, in the challenge to find each other for survival. Featuring more weapons, and perks via the addition of Perks-a-Cola machines, electroshock defenses and the endless Nazi Zombie horde, “Verrückt” will push you to the edge of your sanity.

The map pack is available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 800 Microsoft Points and on the PlayStation Store for $9.99. The Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 1 will be made available for PC at a future date to be announced.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz +
  • Memory: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA)
  • HD Space: 8 Gigabyte
