SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Fresh soldiers arrive at the front line today as Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) has announced that Call of Duty(TM): United Offensive(TM) has shipped to retail outlets nationwide. The highly anticipated expansion pack to Infinity Ward's Call of Duty(TM) -- which has received more than 80 Game of the Year and 50 Editor's Choice Awards worldwide -- brings the cinematic intensity of the brand to unprecedented heights with more action than ever before. Developed by Gray Matter Interactive Studios, Call of Duty: United Offensive is rated "T" (Teen -- Blood, Mild Language, Violence) by the ESRB and carries a suggested retail price of $29.99. Call of Duty: United Offensive allows gamers to experience more of WWII's most legendary conflicts through the eyes of Allied soldiers fighting for the liberation of Europe through 13 intense new single player missions. Featuring three all-new campaigns, the game lets players join the U.S. 101st Airborne during the Battle of the Bulge, the British campaign as an airman shooting down German ME-109s from a B-17 bomber, and the Russian frontlines as a conscript in the crucial eight-day Battle of Kursk. Additionally, Call of Duty: United Offensive expands on the popular multiplayer experience of the original Call of Duty. Players can go online for the ultimate battle between Axis and Allied powers, now including vehicle combat aboard tanks and jeeps as well as tank-and-foot-soldier combined arms action. The expanded multiplayer component offers 11 new maps and three new modes of play -- including Base Assault, Capture the Flag and Domination -- where squads must take control of key locations while preventing enemy troops from advancing. And, a newly added ranking system now lets players earn additional weaponry upon completion of objectives, call in artillery support, and gain the respect of friends and foes alike. The expansion pack also features a handful of enhancements, such as new realistic WWII weapons, including the German Flammenwerfer 35 Flamethrower and Panzerschrek anti-tank weapon, American M1A1 Bazooka, Russian Tokarev SVT-40 Self-Loading Rifle, portable deployable machine-guns, smoke grenades and more. Furthermore, Gray Matter has added an entirely new special effects system to Call of Duty: United Offensive, providing visually stunning moments to players with realistic explosions, weather and particle effects.
