Activision has finally supplied a media blowout for the upcoming second map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, labeled the “Escalation” DLC. To bring everyone up to speed that has not been following along, the Escalation map pack leaked a few weeks ago by Australian retailer Game, who mistakenly put up an e-flier onto their website. Since that media frenzy, Activision has made the Escalation DLC official. Escalation adds five new multiplayer maps to Black Ops — four for competitive multiplayer, one for zombie mode.
Escalation launches on May 3, 2011 on Xbox Live, while PlayStation 3 and PC users will get the add-on at a later date.
Here’s the first trailer for Escalation, featuring the members of Treyarch talking about the new maps being added. You can also find a lot of screenshots of the DLC below said trailer.
