While on the topic of downloadable stuff, a quick mention is in order for the freshly released Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 2, courtesy of publisher Activision and developer Treyarch. The pack brings 4 new maps, and is now available for download for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, costing 800 Microsoft points and £7.99 respectively. That would be $9.99, give or take...

If your trigger-happy finger is itching and lusting for some hot action, you will be more than glad to know that Activision, in an act of faith, good will and infinite kindness, has announced that some of the luckier Xbox 360 owners are now eligible to jump right in the middle of combat, with the freshly released Beta for Call of Duty: World at War. Sadly, the PC version of the game will "enjoy" the same treatment a bit later.

Access is granted to those who were fast enough to pre-order the game via GameStop, these fellows will receive some sort of activation key and will be able to start downloadin' the Beta right away. For the rest of us, the puny folk, the only chance to take a glimpse at Treyarch's shooter before it hits the shelves, is a visit to the game's official website and a lucky strike at the "we'll choose you randomly" factor.



While inside the Beta, players will be able to choose between four factions - U.S., Germany, Japan and Russia - then clash like titans using one of the four modes available. Call of Duty: World at War is destined to rock our socks on November 11, for all platforms.
Eidos' regiment of engineers blew the cover off Battlestations: Pacific, the sequel to last year's action-strategy WWII game Battlestations: Midway. Inside we found the first set of screenshots that you can see below, along with the usual game synopsis. Which goes something like this...
"The game features a massive U.S. and Japanese single player campaign that offers a unique blend of action and strategy. Players must plan their moves carefully on huge open-world arenas and fight in the air, above sea and underwater to relive some of the most hard-fought battles in WWII history. With the newly added Japanese faction, players will also gain insight into what could have been, should Japan have gained the upper hand against the United States. Battlestations: Pacific also features five new innovative multiplayer modes to strategically plan and battle against friends with all new maps and units.
