We finally have some good news for PC users, as Treyarch has just confirmed a date for the First Strike DLC Download for PC on Call of Duty: Black Ops. The pack is already out on the Xbox 360 and PS3, but you won’t have to wait much longer to play it via Steam.
Treyarch’s information man Josh Olin has just confirmed the date via his Twitter account, and that date is March 25th. Although, those words are from the mouth of Olin himself, the official listing on Steam shows that the DLC will be available on March 26th instead – we’re guessing Treyarch has the last word though.
The price is originally set at $14.99, but if you pre-order it now via Steam, you can get a small discount and just pay $13.49 for it. Just in case you need telling again, First Strike will consist of five new maps. Four multiplayer maps – Berlin Wall, Stadium, Kowloon and Discovery and then there’s also a new zombie map too called Ascension.
The Xbox 360 has had this pack for an eternity now, and the PS3 has only just received it, but at least PC owners will be able to get in on the action this week. How many of you are going to download this for $14.99? It’s worth every penny in our opinion, as the replay value you get from five brand new maps is pretty reasonable we feel.
So just to repeat, this pack is releasing either on March 25th (according to Treyarch), or March 26th (according to Steam).
