CoD3 free bonus map

More downloadable war.

Despite sounding like a dog biscuit, "Champs" is actually a free new map for Call of Duty 3.

Available now for gold members to download from Xbox Live, the compact map delivers some spiffing war opportunities for small and medium-sized battles via online, split-screen, or system link play. If you're not content with that, then up the player limit to 24 and go absolutely bananas.

The action takes place in the war-torn French farm town of Port Royal des Champs. Blown-out buildings such as a battered cathedral and a private chateau provide cover, with sprawling wheat fields and hidden ravines adding tactical flanking possibilities.

As previously announced, "Champs" is the first of two downloadable add-ons for Call of Duty 3. However, you'll have to pay 800 Microsoft points (GBP 6.80 / EUR 10.30) for the upcoming Valor Map pack, which is expected to feature five locations "primed for intense close-quarters action".
