Black Ops – Escalation Map Pack Video, Vague About New Zombies Map

By Jamie Pert - Apr 20, 2011

The eager amongst you will have already seen our post bringing you the new trailer for the Escalation map pack for Black Ops which guides you through a short tour of the four new multiplayer maps. One thing we picked up however was that there was little mention about Call of the Dead, the new zombie map.

Before the release of the previous downloadable map pack, First Strike, Activision kept quiet about the Ascension zombie map which certainly helped build the hype, it looks like Activision like this strategy and have adopted the same approach with the upcoming Call of the Dead zombie map.

Zombies have been a huge success since the days of Call of Duty: World at War, we wonder whether an independent trailer will be released to promote the Call of the Dead zombie map. A previous post told you how Treyarch promised an “Epic Zombies experience” with all-new playable characters, surely this deserves a trailer of its own.

There are short glimpses of the map that we see in the new trailer which begs questions as to what the map could be about and where it could be set. Unlike the titles of the other four maps, we are not given clues to the location for this one, is this significant? What do you expect from the next zombies map?
