Our favorite first person shooter for the Xbox gets an update on Tuesday via Xbox Live. There are now four multiplayer maps available for download via the Content Download section of Xbox Live. These four maps are in two groups. The first one, “Bonus Map Pack”, includes Containment and Warlock maps – this one is a free download. The other pack is named “Killtacular Pack”, includes Turf and Sanctuary maps – this one is $5.99. The Killtacular Pack will set you back a couple of bucks now, but if you wait until June 28th you will be able to download those two packs free of charge. Be sure to check them out, download them and stain them with your opponents’ body parts. See ya’ll online!
