New images and Grindhouse-style poster for the new “Escalation” DLC for Treyarch’s “Call of Duty: Black Ops” game, due out on Xbox May 3rd, which probably means the rest of us will get it about a month later. By then, hopefully, Sony will have turned their Playstation Network back on and we can all enjoy the new maps. If not? Eh, there’s always — wait, nevermind, you basically can’t do squat with “Black Ops” that doesn’t involve logging into the network once you’ve finished the single-player campaign.
Unlike past zombie level expansion maps, “Escalation” will allow you to play as Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robert Englund, Michael Rooker, and Danny Trejo. Yes, the actual actors. Well, their game counterparts, anyway. You’ll also get to do battle with the grandfather of zombies himself, George Romero! How’s that for novel gameplay?
