If you are a Call of Duty fan, you’ll know that the latest map pack for Black Ops, titled Escalation has been leaked by GAME before Activision had the chance to announce it offiically. The bad news for PS3 and PC owners looking for a release date, is that it looks like this deal will once again be exclusive on the Xbox 360 first.
As we mentioned in our previous article here, Escalation will be out on May 3rd, and will feature five brand new maps, just like previous map First Strike. Those maps are Zoo, Convoy, Hotel, Stockpile and a brand new zombie map called ‘Survive’ or ‘Call of the Dead’.
What you may have been wondering though, is if this map will be releasing on the PS3 and PC as the same time as the Xbox 360, but sadly it looks like you’re going to have to wait until the first week of June at least. Microsoft and Activision still have a three year exclusive deal in place, so Escalation and any other map packs due out this year will still land on the Xbox 360 first.
Firstly, what are your thoughts on the new maps – Surprised they are coming so soon after First Strike? Will you be forking out another 1200MS Points for these, or will you give it a miss this time around? As for PS3 and PC owners, are you tired of this exclusivity deal now, or have you become used to playing the new maps last? We’ll bring you full details on the maps when Activision announce it officially.
