Call of Duty 3 Map Pack Bug – News Update

cod3.jpgWell as the saga continues, the developers seem very eager to express their apologies and to give us an update on the latest news.

It looks as if we are going to have to download the maps again when they have been fixed, so an auto-update might not be required after all, but I am sure this won’t affect our previous purchase:

Well folks… it has been a crazy and hectic day, and we are continuing to work towards a solution through the night. We’ve made some progress through cooperation with Microsoft. We had hoped to resolve the technical issues with the map pack by the end of the day today, but it looks like that will not happen.

We do know that the package posted to Marketplace this morning is not valid and will not work with the game, so deleting the old file through the system blade of the dashboard will at least put users a step ahead when the new package goes live.

I realize that this is disappointing news – I assure you that we are doing everything that we can to resolve this as soon as possible. Please hang with us as we work through this, and stay tuned for further updates.

So if you have already downloaded it, seems we need to delete it and wait for the updated maps, which of course should be free for people like myself who have already purchased them. I will make another post when the new maps are available and fixed as I am sure you Call of Duty 3 fans are just as eager as I am to try them out online!
