CoD Black Ops DLC, PS3 Escalation map pack release date update

Remember a few days ago when we told you that the long awaited Escalation map pack for the PS3 version of Black Ops would arrive on June 10? Well now we can confirm that it is arriving slightly earlier than this.

According to a recent tweet from Treyarch‘s community manager, Josh Olin, the map pack will arrive this evening. Details are scarce, in fact all we know is what was said in a tweet 30 minutes ago, it read “Developing story: #Escalation deploying #Tonight for the #PS3, instead of tomorrow. I’ll keep you updated throughout”. This news only really applies to people in the U.S. or surrounding areas as it is already June 10 in some areas.

This news will be welcomed by PS3 gamers as they have had to wait a long time for the Escalation map pack due to all of the recent PlayStation Network problems, Xbox 360 gamers received the DLC on May 3rd and PC gamers got the same content on June 2nd.

Just to recap the Escalation map pack brings for new multiplayer maps and the very popular and groundbreaking zombie map “Call of the Dead”, the multiplayer maps are called Convoy, Hotel, Stockpile and Zoo.

To get all of the latest news regarding this premature DLC release follow Josh Olin (aka JD_2020) on Twitter, will you be buying the Escalation map pack tonight?
