At the end of March, we received a pres release stating that Map Pack 1 for Treyarch's Call of Duty: World at War has successfully broken the downloads record on Xbox Live. The curious thing about it was that there was no figure attached to the report, although there was mention that more than 150 million people have already joined in the multiplayer around the world.
Today we solve that mathematical oddity as we have the figures for the said blockbuster Map Pack 1. Combining stats for both the XBL and PSN downloads, the DLC racks up a whopping 2 million downloads. And that's just for a little over a month since it launched back in Mid-March.
Mark Lamia of Treycarch is of course happy and thankful to the fans who are supporting the game, and for never tiring of WWII shooters. If you're expecting more big things to come for World at War (PS3, Xbox 360), then June is the next date to watch out for, cos the next DLC is dropping then.
Here's to hoping that DLC would be even better than this already-great one.
