News of five new downloadable maps (known as the ‘Escalation Pack’) for Call of Duty: Black Ops was leaked earlier this month. A mere two weeks later, Activision has got round to detailing maps, giving us a video, and confirming the release date (May 3rd on Xbox Live, other platforms will have the usual 30-day wait).
Here’s what to expect, even if hell, it all looks like guys shooting each other to me:
♦ Hotel – Set on the roof of a Cuban luxury hotel and casino against the vivid backdrop of old Havana.
♦ Convoy – Close-quarters combat at the scene of an ambushed US military convoy.
♦ Zoo – An abandoned Soviet Russian Zoo, with danger at every turn.
♦ Stockpile – pits players in a remote Russian farm town housing secret WMD facilities.
♦ Call of the Dead – Zombies experience with more details to come.
