Black Ops: First Strike DLC Review -- Is This Call of Duty Map Pack Worth It?

The rumor/leak we posted last week turns out to be true (yay, us!): Call of Duty: Black Ops' "Escalation" map pack will come out on Tuesday, May 3. Escalation, the second downloadable content pack for CoD: Blops, contains five new maps: Four "traditional" Multiplayer playing fields and one Zombie experience with all-new playable characters.

The maps:

  • Hotel: You'll fight it out on the roof of a Cuban luxury hotel and casino in old Havana.
  • Convoy: Features intense, close-quarters combat at the scene of an ambushed US military convoy.
  • Zoo:  Set in an abandoned Soviet Russian Zoo.
  • Stockpile: Finds players in a remote Russian farm town housing WMD facilities.

We haven't gotten any details yet on the "unique zombie experience" we can expect from the new zombie maps, but judging by the colorful and interesting zombie games of the past, I expect, no, demand, great things.

This will be out on Xbox Live Arcade before it hits the PlayStation Network and PC, so sorry PS3 and PC users, you'll be waiting until an as-yet-unannounced date to get your "Escalation" on.

All of the best people are following Steve Johnson's twitter feed. Also, email me if you wanna.
