You have been waiting for it and now it’s happening. The Call Of Duty: Black Ops “Escalation” pack is finally coming to PS3 after a perhaps longer than planned wait. The Escalation DLC pack will be available in the PlayStation Store on next Friday, June 10th. Escalation features four multiplayer maps and one star-studded Zombies experience (aka Call Of The Dead) unlike any other.
- HOTEL takes the sunny splendor of a luxurious Cuban casino resort and turns it into a bullet-riddled war zone. Details like the blown casino safe and poolside bar offer some unusual cover for run-and-gunners, but thanks to the high vantage points at opposite ends, it’s also a great map for snipers.
- Why not visit the ZOO? The big cats and deadly reptiles left this abandoned Russian animal park long ago, but the overgrown, dilapidated facility still plays host to the world’s most dangerous game. Hide below in the bear lair or snipe from above on the monorail track – you’ve got the run of the place.
- If you’re looking for a slice of classic Americana, check out the small-town motel and diner near the ambushed CONVOY. The freeway overpass has collapsed, leaving a missile stranded above and rubble littered below – not to mention a pre-fab house, apparently in transit by truck when the attack hit, now toppled on its side in ruins. Talk about trailer trash.
- STOCKPILE looks like an ordinary town in remote Russia…until you find the warhead hidden in the building in the center of town. Use switches to slide the huge steel doors up and down – good for restricting access during objective-based games.
Now that would be awesome by itself, but we did mention Zombies right? Cinema’s zombie godfather George A. Romero is making his latest undead epic – starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robert Englund, Michael Rooker, and Danny Trejo – only to have a real zombie apocalypse break out, infecting the director himself and causing him to stalk you throughout the level. All the stars performed their roles with full motion capture and voice-over, so when you and three friends take on wave after wave of the zombie horde, you’ll do so as some of Hollywood’s most famous monster mashers.
Just to top it all off, they are giving you guys another double XP weekend next weekend as well which will start next Friday and run through Sunday, June 12. Oh yeah, we haven’t been able to confirm yet, but you might want to keep watching the site because we have given away a ton of codes for the last few Call Of Duty: Black Ops DLC and I wouldn’t expect anything different this time.
