Military re-boot Medal of Honor will get its first deployment of extra content on November 2, with the four-map Clean Sweep pack that's being released for free.

Set at the start of the War in Afghanistan, Clean Sweep is a team-based elimination mode. The two new maps are called Bagram Hangar and Khyber Cave, while the other two are redesigned versions of the Diwagal Camp and Kabul City environments.

The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 content is free to those that registered the game via an Online Pass code included with the full game, part of a general trend to encourage video gamers to buy first-hand.

What else is happening during the same week that Clean Sweep hits? Well, there are two James Bond games in the form of GoldenEye 007 and Blood Stone, and Microsoft's Kinect Sensor and suite of motion-controlled family games launch for Xbox 360.

Just around the corner, though, is the next installment from genre giant Call of Duty.

Call of Duty: Black Ops, due November 9, is to be accompanied by a gargantuan marketing campaign and follows on from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which has been trumpeted by publishers Activision as a world-record entertainment launch, making $550 million in the first five days since its November 2009 release.

Medal of Honor's publishers, Electronic Arts, have said that their game sold 1.5 million copies and generated $100 million during its first five days.
