New Call of Duty 3 map pack announced

Activision continues to support the virtual troops with the Bravo Map Pack, set to hit Xbox Live Marketplace toward the end of May. Like the previous Valor pack released in January, Bravo will also feature a combination of new maps and old maps from previous COD titles, reworked for the Xbox 360. Bravo will also cost 800 Microsoft Points.

The new maps include Aller Haut, Seine River and Rimling. Aller Haut is a mostly outdoor map as you move across open terrain and trails. The Germans begin from an elevated position in a hilltop abbey, perfect for snipers and as a point of high ground. Of course, the Americans' rumbling tank (the only vehicle on the map) can eliminate that advantage with one placed shell, so watch your six!

Also included are two reworked Call of Duty 1 maps (one from the expansion United Offensive actually).

Gare Centrale is a remodeled version of Depot, a favorite map from the original Call of Duty. The warehouses, water towers and trains make for a variety of interesting combat, and we can't wait to see this old fav sparkling in high definition. You can jump from rooftop to rooftop to work for a strategic advantage.

The fifth and final map, Merseilles, is inspired by Karkov from COD: United Offensive. The town is in ruins and as such, there is a lot of open terrain. You can move between the two trains that split the area in two, or grab a jeep, tank or motorcycle to get around this fairly large map.
