Call of Duty 2 fans will be able to get their hands on five new multiplayer maps this week, and they'll cost less than we originally thought, according to Infinity Ward's community manager.

The Invasion Pack, announced in the run up to E3, was originally due out in July. That's not the case any more, according to a chap Xbox Live's Larry Hryb identifies as the game's community manager - instead you'll be able to get them on Thursday, June 29th.

What's more, the Invasion Pack will go on sale on Xbox Live Marketplace for 800 Microsoft points rather than 900 as originally stated.

The five new maps are Antoville, France (Crossroads), St. Louet, France (Newvillers), Amaye sur Seulles, France (Normandy), Alam Halfa, Egypt (Decoytown) and Rostov, Russia (Harbour).

They follow the release of some free content and a four-map Skirmish Pack for 400 Microsoft points last month.

There's no word on whether Infinity Ward plans to continue the onslaught of new World War II battlegrounds, but given the game's popularity - it's still the most played Xbox 360 online game according to Microsoft's stats - it seems quite likely.
