Nightfire
Fire-bombed Berlin provides the backdrop for “Nightfire,” an intense
battlefield for mid to large-scale team games. Shelled buildings and ruins of
the city provide coverage among the war-ravaged streets, and the flames of the
burning city expose the enemy running through the night. Fight for your life
knowing that this fiery urban battlefield may soon be your grave.

Station
”Station” offers a bombed out underground train station littered with
destroyed subway cars, hidden passageways, loading platforms and second story
overlooks to use to your advantage against any number of enemies. Ideal for
dominating Capture the Flag and other team games, this map provides you with a
wide range of combat options from close range choke points to hidden sniper
spots.

Knee Deep
“Knee Deep” takes place on the island of Peleliu in a once tranquil village
turned chaotic Japanese command center. You and your squad will fight through
the jungle, wading knee-deep in streams, in order to retrieve valuable intel and
take battle positions in fortified Japanese bunkers all to secure an important
communication center. The harsh jungles of “Knee Deep” are perfect for tactical
team games and all-out assaults on multiple enemy positions.

Verrckt (Zombie Asylum)
The fan favorite 4-player co-op Nazi Zombies Bonus Mode returns with “Verrckt,”
a terrifying Zombie asylum located in the outskirts of Berlin. Players are split
into pairs, in the challenge to find each other for survival. Featuring more
weapons, and perks via the addition of Perks-a-Cola machines, electroshock
defenses and the endless Nazi Zombie horde, “Verrckt” will push you to the edge
of your sanity.

Call of Duty: World at War is rated
“M” (Mature) by the ESRB for Intense Violence, Strong Language, Blood and Gore.
