CoD Black Ops Xbox 360: First Strike Pack 1 – Download Now

By Jamie Pert - Feb 1, 2011

Today is a great day for Xbox 360 gamers who play Call of Duty: Black Ops, the First Strike Pack 1 DLC has just become available on Xbox Live, English gamers can add it to their download queue here.

As you probably already know the First Strike Pack 1 consists of 5 new maps, one of these is a new Zombies level called Ascension, the other four are multiplayer maps called Berlin Wall, Discovery, Kowloon and Stadium.

The First Strike Pack costs 1200 Microsoft points ($15.00) and is 646.37 MB in size, the download shouldn’t usually take too long, however things might slow down because of just how popular this DLC will inevitably be.

In three days time a double XP weekend will kick off, which should help Xbox 360 gamers prestige much quicker, frustratingly PlayStation 3 gamers still have another month to wait for the DLC.

Most of the excitement has been surrounding the new zombies map which is called Ascension, you can watch the official First Strike trailer here, you get a good look at all of the maps and get a sneak peak at the perk stealing red-eyed monkey zombies which feature on the Ascension map.

    You could of been banned for using a offensive emblem or trying out a glitch or something in that way.

    And the new zombie map that has come with the DLC is nice.

    Just downloaded the map packs, and it says that the black ops servers are down and whenever i log in it tells me there are 0 people in the world online. Which is obviously not true.

    • MARK

      You never know pedropaddy!!

    • Mad John

      same here….total garbage waste of time and money!!

  • Sam

    Poor port on the PS3, tons of bugs and server issues, 1 month wait for an over priced pack of maps, gotta love Activision. Looking forward to Battlefield bad company 3 and, Killzone 3. COD is usually a great game but, I just can't keep playing that game knowing what a load of crap it is on the PS3

  • Mark

    is there a double xp weekend coming for ps3??

  • christian

    when is it being released for PC?? any ETA on that one?

  • Catt123456

    I did, it took a while. There was lag at first. I am torn between Discovery, Berlin Wall and Kowloon. Stadium's boring

  • marhorn

    • scott
