“Map Pack 1″ is the first set of maps that was made available for Call of Duty: World at War. It was announced on March 18, 2009 and expanded the game by adding four new maps. Three of the maps were for online multiplayer and one was for the Zombies game mode. Until now there has only currently been one Zombie map which was fairly basic and the new Zombie map really opens the door for the game mode.

Below are a list of the maps:
Knee Deep: Takes place on the lisland of Peleliu in a small village which has been run down by Japanese occupation. Lots of places to fight and well balanced gameplay. Great for all types of players and combat types.
Verrückt: A brand new zombie map which takes place in a zombie asylum on the outskirts of Berlin. Offers brand new weapons, perks and traps! Much bigger than the previous “Nacht der Untoten” map too. A really good zombie map! The Verruckt map was also made available in the Rezurrection map pack DLC for Black Ops.

The map pack was released initally for Xbox-360 and Playstation 3 with promises that the PC version would be released later. At the time there was no effective way to offer the map pack to PC users unless they sold the maps by physical disk which would be a lot of effort. Instead Treyarch made the map pack free for PC users but released it about a month later than the PS3 and Xbox-360 versions.
