Eidos today announced the Volcano Map Pack for Battlestations: Pacific which is available tomorrow (what's with the short notice?) for 560 Microsoft Points. The Volcano Map Pack is set to feature 2 multiplayer maps; Volcano and Choke Point, which are larger, more expansive areas and all new terrain than the ones featured in the title.
"‘Volcano’, playable in Island Capture, Competitive and Duel modes, features a stunning backdrop of Hawaiian-style volcanic islands at dawn break. Island Capture mode offers players an all-new island formation to master with many huge land-based artillery batteries to capture and control; Competitive mode focuses on intense air combat as players either attack or defend a squadron of B-29 bombers intent on crushing the Japanese island occupation; and Duel mode offers players a unique battlefield unseen in Battlestations: Pacific – a partially submerged volcano."
"In ‘Choke Point’, playable in Escort, Siege and Duel modes, players are offered a challenging and distinctive map which offers up its own unique blend of action and strategy. A narrow channel running through two stunning volcanic outcrops offers players a more action-oriented battlefield, all under the shadow of a huge volcano. Escort mode sees the USS Yorktown run the gauntlet with both air and sea attacks against its naval fleet; in Siege mode, the US ground forces have to disembark at the base of the volcano, their goal to capture the Japanese outpost; and Duel mode pits players to all out warfare in a head-to-head battle around the mighty volcano."
