That’s right folks, Dan Bunting himself makes an appearance on Xbox Live’s Major Nelson’s podcast and gives us the official word on Black Ops DLC. Download the show and listen for yourself. Bunting’s interview is at about the 30 minute mark.
For those who are too impatient here’s the low down…
~DLC called “First Strike” will drop February 1st 2011 exclusively on XBL (to start)
~Pack will include 4 MP maps and 1 Zombie map
~It will set you back 1200 Microsoft Points
~MP maps are called Kowloon, Berlin Wall, Discovery and Stadium
~Zombie map called Ascension
~”Berlin Wall” takes place at Checkpoint Charlie
~”Discovery” takes place in an antarctic German research station
~”Kowloon” is based a single player mission in China
~”Stadium” is in a freakin hockey rink!!!
So those sound pretty awesome if I do say so myself. I mean a hockey rink?! I’m sold. Yes 1200 Microsoft points does seem a bit pricey for a map pack. Yes I have ranted about the high prices of the MW2 DLC but the main difference this time is that all the maps are BRAND NEW. No remake maps in this DLC. So while 1200 is a lot, it’s a little more justified this time in my opinion.
