While I’m certain there are people out there who still live and breathe the thing, it seems, to me at least, that this incarnation of Call Of Duty hasn’t really captured the imagination of everyone’s favorite pop culture barometer, collectively known as the Interwebz.
This time last year, you couldn’t pop open a forum page without getting an eyeful of Ghost masks and Soap mohawks. Maybe it’s the blandness of the protagonist or the overused Vietnam imagery, but while it’s still selling, nobody’s still talking about it.
Regardless, Activision are dutifully putting forward a new map pack and they’re making good on the timed Xbox exclusive promise as well, making this rather a poor time to be a PS3 gamer all around. First Strike will be bringing you five new maps, namely Kowloon, Discovery, Berlin Wall, and Stadium, all of them offering “more verticality” and “more sniper opportunities”, but only Kowloon offering ziplines to make travel faster and more bullet-riddled. Well, Discovery has a collapsible bridge to compensate, so there’s that. All of this for just $15 and coming in two weeks.
