Well PS3 and PC gamers are going to have to wait again for Call Of Duty: Black Ops DLC as Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation is coming exclusively to the Xbox on May 3rd. As many of you know Microsoft signed an exclusivity agreement with Activision which means this will be the case for a while now. The game’s debut content pack, First Strike,shattered Xbox LIVE launch records upon its release in February when it surpassed 1.4 million downloads in the first 24 hours alone (wonder what it would have been if PS3 and PC would have been included). The follow up content pack, Escalation, will launch first on Xbox LIVE and features four all-new multiplayer maps, and a Zombies experience like none before it.
“In crafting the Escalation multiplayer maps – Zoo, Convoy, Hotel and Stockpile – the team developed them to be distinct experiences in their own right, giving players the variety they crave in both setting and gameplay,” said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. “And I don’t want to spoil any surprises for Zombies fans, but Call of the Dead takes it to a whole new level.”
Additionally, to celebrate the upcoming release of Escalation, Treyarch will host a Double XP weekend beginning Friday, May 6th (at least everyone should be able to get in on this one). No word on when Escalation will drop for PS3 and PC.
