Wasn’t it just last week that the “Call of Duty: Black Ops” folks released their “First Strike” DLC expansion pack? Not quite last week, but it wasn’t all that long ago. Apparently they were already hard at work on a second map pack, this one called “Escalation”, and it will feature four new maps as well as one new zombie map called “Call of the Dead”, which, let’s face it, is a pretty damn good title for a zombie movie, nevermind a zombie game.
The four maps will include:
- Hotel – Set on the roof of a Cuban luxury hotel and casino against the vivid backdrop of old Havana.
- Convoy – Delivers intense, close-quarters combat at the scene of an ambushed US military convoy.
- Zoo – Takes you on a wild ride in an abandoned Soviet Russian Zoo, with danger at every turn.
- Stockpile – Pits players in a remote Russian farm town housing secret WMD facilities.
And in case you haven’t heard, “Call of Duty: Black Ops” has sold like a gazillion copies, and is currently the bestselling game since the invention of games and time itself. As always, XBox players will get it first on May 3rd.
No word on when it’ll be released on the other platforms, but if it’s anything like “First Strike”, the rest of us will have to wait at least a month to get it, more than enough time for the XBox goons to learn all the camping spots and lay in wait for us like something that lays in wait like a bunch of laying in wait goons.
