As most everyone who cares about Black Ops knows, the Escalation Map Pack has officially been announced. The rumors from that Aussie website are true! Need confirmation other than my own word? Check out the post on Major Nelson’s blog…
Today Activision has announced Escalation, the next game add-on for Call of Duty: Black Ops and that it will be available first to Xbox LIVE members on Tuesday May 3rd. Escalation, the second downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, contains 5 all-new maps; featuring 4 Multiplayer maps and an epic Zombies experience with all-new playable characters. In Multiplayer, battle it out in Hotel, 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.
For Zombies fans, “Escalation” features a unique Zombies experience.
As with the previous map pack, Treyarch is safe guarding the secrets of the new zombie map. So if you are into the zombie scene I would keep an eye on GKnova6.com for any hints and clues for the upcoming release.
Along with this announcement today fans were excited to hear that a double XP weekend will accompany the DLC release. The maps, which drop on May 3th, will be followed by the x2 XP starting on the 6th. So get ready to hit up that prestige button and rake in the XP!!
