We can now confirm that if you buy Call of Duty: Zombies (previolusly called Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies), for the current price of $4.99, you’ll get all of the content available for the game at no additional charge. That includes the new map “Die Riese,” plus the three maps that were previously available (two of which, until today, required in-app purchases to unlock).
If you’d bought the app previously and hadn’t downloaded the additional maps, this latest update will unlock those maps for free, as well as give you the new one.
If the relatively high price of this game had given you pause before, now is definitely the time to buy.
Activision announced today that a new downloadable map for Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies will be released tomorrow. Called “Der Riese” (aka “Zombie Factory”), the new map was developed by Ideaworks Game Studio and will take its place next to the three maps already available.
If you’re scrambling to the App Store now to purchase the game in anticipation of the new map, put the brakes on, sir. Currently, the game costs $9.99, and all you get is the first map. If we’re reading the press release correctly, when the new map is made available tomorrow, the game will go on sale for $4.99, and it will include all four maps. Since the wording of the press release is a little unclear, we’ve reached out for comment and will update this article when we get the official word.
Activision is hoping Der Riese will whet players’ appetites for the upcoming console game Call of Duty: Black Ops, launching for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on November 9.
