COD Black Ops DLC: First Strike Map Pack Release Time for Xbox 360

By Alan Ng - Feb 28, 2011

If you have the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty Black Ops, we are guessing that most of you are planning to stay up until the first DLC map pack releases tonight. It’s called First Strike and we have an indication from Treyarch for when the new content will be available.

This is somewhat of a treat for you, as Treyarch never usually narrow down a release time for their DLC map packs, but we can tell you that First Strike will be available around 2am Pacific Time or 5am for those of you on the Eastern Time zone.

This was confirmed by Treyarch’s Community Manager Josh Olin, as his following Twitter message reads:

”Drops 2AM-ish, Pacific Standard Time. I’ll be tweeting all night so if you’re staying up for it, you won’t miss it! =)”

Definitely something worth staying up for then. Don’t forget that this content is exclusive for Xbox 360 owners first, as those of you with the PS3 version will get it a month later. First Strike will feature four new multiplayer maps, and also a brand new zombie map called Ascension. Treyarch hasn’t released any gameplay details on Ascension, but you should check out our previous report here if you’re looking for info, as it confirms the addition of new weapons and perks.

As for the multiplayer maps, you can check out some gameplay action here, featuring all four maps – Stadium, Discovery, Berlin Wall and Kowloon. Now that you know the estimated download time for First Strike, let us know if you are planning to stay up all night to play it or not.
