    World At War Map Pack 2 Coming in June.

    It stands to reason that Activision was quite pleased with the initial reception for Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 1. After all, the four-map, $10/£8 add-on content sold more than one million copies in its first week It comes as no surprise, then, that the publisher is prepping a second.
    Today, Activision confirmed that the Call of Duty: World at War Map Pack 2 will be available for the PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360 in June. Pricing information was not revealed, though Map Pack 2 will include the same number of battlegrounds as the first batch of DLC.
    As with Map Pack 1, Map Pack 2 will include three standard online multiplayer arenas. Banzai takes place deep in enemy territory as players vie for control of a tall bridge over a river. Corrosion sees players journeying to Mother Russia to do battle in a dilapidated train yard. Sub Pens features close-quarter firefights in a bombed-out submarine base.
    Map Pack 2 will also include a zombie-infused co-op battleground titled Shi No Numa, where players join up to lay waste to Imperial Zombies. In addition to undead Imperial Japan grunts, the map features Hell Hounds, Perk machines, and a new weapon: the Wunderwaffe DG-2. Players will be able to earn additional Xbox 360 Achievement points or comparable PS3 Trophies.

    Rumor: Assassins Creed 2 to 'Shock' E3

    Since Assassins Creed 2 was confirmed people have been wondering if it would go beyond Assassins Creed with new features such as online multiplayer or co-op. We and some other gaming websites now believe that Assassins Creed 2 will feature online multiplayer and/or co-op. We also understand that a demo is due out 2 weeks before the games release in November. Ubisoft are set to announce something big at the E3 2009 Convention and we understand it is about the 'online' subject. We are also expecting the first Assassins Creed 2 gameplay trailer and a new Splinter Cell Teaser Trailer.
