It is officially May 3rd and it can only mean one thing for Xbox 360 owners – the launch date for the latest map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops. We’re now hearing reports that Escalation is now live on the Xbox 360 Marketplace, but not for all regions yet.
Just to refresh, Escalation contains four brand new multiplayer maps and an all-new zombie experience called Call of the Dead. The new zombie mode is arguably what you are all waiting to play, so we’re excited to see what you all think of the new characters, new gameplay and of course, new weapons!
According to a recent tweet by Treyarch’s Josh Olin, Escalation is now up on the US Marketplace, but it isn’t available for UK gamers yet unfortunately. We’re unsure how long UK gamers will have to wait, but it shouldn’t be long if it has already appeared for everyone in US.
Head to the marketplace now and see if you can start downloading on your Xbox 360. Some of you may have already finished downloading and have already had a taste of the new maps. If so – let us know your impressions.
Is Escalation out for you in your area, or are you still waiting?
