The company also reported that in the nine days from April 4 - 12, Xbox Live members played more than 30 million COD4 sessions and logged more than 32 million hours of gameplay.

"Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare delivers one of the best online multiplayer experiences ever," said Will Kassoy, senior vice president, global brand management, Activision Publishing, Inc.

"We are excited to be able to expand that experience and deliver to fans a new variety of locations and environments which have all of the intensity they have come to expect with Call of Duty."

The variety map pack is exclusive to the Xbox 360 through April 24, when it will become available for download via the PlayStation Network.

During the weekend of April 18 through April 20, Microsoft will partner with Activision and developer Infinity Ward for a 72-hour sweepstakes with hourly prizes including shirts, autographed posters and Xbox Live point cards. One Grand Prize winner will also receive an Infinity Ward autographed Xbox 360 Elite console and a Limited Edition Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare faceplate, among other items.
