Battlestations maps erupt onto Live

Volcano and Choke Point, to be Pacific.

Eidos is popping out some extra maps for Battlestations: Pacific on Xbox Live Marketplace today. The PC extras will be available on Games for Windows Live from 25th June.

The Volcano Map Pack costs 560 Microsoft Points (GBP 4.76 / EUR 6.72) and adds Volcano and Choke Point maps.

Volcano features a, er, volcano to fight around in Island Capture, Competitive and Duel modes. And Choke Point features a narrow choke point channel to battle over in Siege, Escort and Duel modes.

Battlestations: Pacific came out in May and retained the land or sea, commander or front-liner promise of Battlestations: Midway. The sequel addressed many of the original problems, too, as our Battlestations: Pacific review points out.
