Ready for some more Black Ops? Well this time you might not be expecting what Activision and Treyarch have on the DLC for you. Aptly named â€œEscalation,â€ the new DLC features four new multiplayer maps, an all-star cast featuring the shexy Sarah Michelle Gellar, and an all-new zombie music track from Avenged Sevenfold. Hit the jump for all the details on the maps and feedback from Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia.
The Escalation content pack’s new multiplayer maps include:
Hotel: Where players battle it out on the roof of a Cuban luxury hotel and casino against the vivid backdrop of old Havana.
Convoy: Which delivers intense, close-quarters combat at the scene of an ambushed U.S. military convoy.
Zoo: Which sets gamers on an eerie ride through an abandoned Soviet Russian Zoo with danger at every turn.
Stockpile: Which pits players in a remote Russian farm town, housing secret WMD facilities.
Call of the Dead: Escalation’s Zombie experience that assembles a zombie-carnage dream team to fight against a new and undefeatable zombie horde menace, all set in the dark, ice-covered isles of Siberia.
We took the community’s feedback to heart, and the result is five of the most creative and varied maps we have ever made,â€ said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. â€œ’Call of the Dead’ is an homage to the great horror films that have inspired the team and represents a deep commitment to our Zombie fans. Being able to collaborate with such talented artists and musicians was an absolute honor and thrill for everyone involved. We think the fans are going to go crazy over it!
To celebrate the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation, Activision and Treyarch today are hosting a â€œGrudge Matchâ€ on Xbox LIVE at Treyarch for ultimate Call of Duty bragging rights.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation pack is available first on XBLA for 1,200 Microsoft Points.
