While we’re still waiting for word on the next installment of COD, and still fearing the release of the live action movie, word emerged today that the next DLC for Black Ops, called “Escalation”, will arrive in 3 weeks time; May 3rd to be more exact. Included will be five new maps (Hotel, Convoy, Zoo, Stockpile, and a yet to be named Zombies map) for what will presumably be a cost of $15 – that’s what previous COD DLCs have cost. Expect the PS3 and the PC to receive the new content a week or two later.
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.
