Back at the beginning of April an image appeared on the Australian GAME website, which appeared to reveal a brand new map pack for the hugely popular Call of Duty: Black Ops game. The map pack — titled ‘Escalation’ was then officially announced and dated by Activision about a week later.
Now we have even more good news for all you COD: Black Ops fans out there, as according to a recent article by Pete Davison on the gamepro.com website, the publisher has recently revealed a few more details, as well as releasing a sneak peek trailer for the upcoming ‘Escalation’ map pack.
As most of you will already know, the map pack will contain a total of five new maps, including a new ‘zombie experience.’ The other four multiplayer maps include Hotel, Convoy, Zoo and Stockpile, which is set in a remote Russian farming town that houses secret weapons production facilities.
The Hotel map will see gamers playing on the roof of a Cuban hotel and casino in Havana, while the Convoy map — which features close-quarters combat – takes place at the scene of an ambush. The Zoo map sees gamers fighting it out in a long-abandoned Russian zoo.
Unfortunately Activision chose to stay quiet about the ‘Call of the Dead’ zombie map at this stage, but promised fans that more details will arrive soon. The ‘Escalation’ map pack is out on May 3rd for the Xbox 360. You can view the trailer below this post. What new map are you looking forward to playing the most?
