First Black Ops DLC Announced

19 Dec

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.

    1200pts is expensive but when you look back at MW2 and remember that they only gave us 3 new maps. That’s a great deal! Okay so they MW2 did give us 5maps yes, but remember 2 of those maps where from the first MW… And Black Ops comes with a new Zombie map! So in my opinion 5 new maps for 1200pts sounds worth it to me.

    Will it worth it? Black ops have tons of connectivity problem, not even worth it if these problem is not reslove. Don’t think anyonewill buy it

    @Curtis it would be highly unlikely that “no one will buy it” regardless of connectivity issues (which personally I haven’t had any since the 1st patch) people will still buy the maps.

    If it says Call of Duty on it, people will buy it. It’s just the way it is.

    @israel The WaW maps were included in the Hardened and Prestige editions of the games, no where else at the moment.

    As for 2x XP theres no word on when there will be one as of right now
