Roughly a week ago we posted an article which suggested that Call of Duty: Black Ops would not receive any more DLC after the Annihilation map pack, however a recent article over at GigaBuster refutes this and tells us that a new map pack called Retaliation will also be released.
We are not sure how reputable GigaBuster’s information is, however if we were to believe everything they say the Retaliation map pack will arrive in September and consists of four new multiplayer maps and one more zombie map. We are told that Cargo will be set in an frozen shipping center in Greenland, Harbor is set in an abandoned shipyard in America, Mansion is set in Castro’s secret compound in Cuba and Metro is set in an urban city in Vietnam.
As for the zombie map this is said to be called Quarantine and will be set in an Area 51 military base, this could mean that aliens will make an appearance, however details are very scarce at the moment therefore we will have to keep you posted as we hear more.
GigaBuster’s article is said to be based on information leaked on a website which Activision keeps taking down silently, to us this sounds very doubtful, therefore we are treating this news as a rumor for now, if the Retaliation map pack does arrive in September it will undoubtedly be game’s last DLC release as Modern Warfare 3 will arrive in early November.
If and when the Retaliation DLC arrives it will cost 1200 Microsoft Points when it hits Xbox Live for a period of exclusivity, the map pack will bring Black Ops to 30 multiplayer maps (if you have purchased the other map packs) and a total of 7 zombies maps, people who bought the Hardened or Prestige editions of Black Ops will have a whopping 11 zombie maps to choose from.
Hopefully we will hear more on this rumor soon, for now let us know whether you believe it in the comments section below, we are not 100% convinced its true.
