Medal of Honor Gets Free DLC, Sold 1.5 Million Copies in Week One
Remember that vague press release EA sent out as damage control last week? It wasn’t really full of s**t. The game sold 1.5 million copies worldwide in the five days after it was released in the US, which means they made somewhere around $100 million at least in the first week. Sure, that’s not Call of Duty or Halo money, but that’s a clear profit, and nobody should really be sad about that.
Oh, and EA also told us today that the game is getting free DLC. Said DLC is a new online mode, Clean Sweep, is an elimination mode and comes with two new maps and versions of the Diwagal Camp and Kabul City Ruins maps reworked for this mode. This will hit on November 2 on the Xbox and PS3, and the press release did not mention a PC release. As you might be aware, November 2 is one week before Black Ops, so maybe they hope you’ll get so wrapped up in Clean Sweep that you’ll forget to pick up your Black Ops pre-orders.
Are you one of those diligent pre-orderers who didn’t forget? If you’ve got your hands on Call of Duty: Black Ops, we’ve got a step-by-step walkthru for your convenience.
