Call of Duty 4 downloadable multiplayer maps on the way

You see that headline? Sadly, that’s all of the real information we have. But allow me to restate it using more words — Activision has announced plans to released downloadable multiplayer maps for Call of Duty 4. The maps will be available for both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, and will “thrust gamers into a hot zone of added combat across a variety of intense multiplayer locales.”

Well, I’d certainly hope so.

“We’ve excited about the new maps, and the added gameplay variety,” said Infinity Ward’s Community Manager Robert Bowling, “and we can’t wait to wrap things up and get online with everyone.”

“Added gameplay variety,” eh? We look forward to more details. In the meantime, continue to play all of the old Call of Duty 4 maps as you had already planned on doing … because the game is awesome. We’ll let you know when we hear some actual information.
