Just announced via Major Nelson’s podcast; Call of Duty: Black Ops will get it first DLC map pack, dubbed ‘First Strike,’ on February 1st, 2011. The map pack will also release first on Xbox Live. PS3 folks, you might have to wait a few weeks.
The DLC map pack contains 4 new multiplayer maps & 1 new zombie map. All of which are detailed below.
- Discovery: Discovery is a map of an abandoned German research station in Antarctica.
- Kowloon: Kowloon is a map set on the rooftops of Kowloon City on a rainy night.
- Berlin Wall: Berlin Wall is an urban, medium-sized map based on Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin.
- Stadium: It is to take place inside a hockey arena located in a Northeastern location in the United States.
- Ascension: It is rumored to take place at Dallas, Texas, where John F Kennedy was assassinated or at the launch facility in the campaign mission, “Executive Order”.
There are no screenshots released as of yet, but if you check on the CoD Wikia for the ‘First Strike’ DLC, you can actually find a few screenshots for the multiplayer maps; Berlin Wall, Stadium & Discovery. I’m not sure if these are real, but they look pretty darn good to me. As soon as I get some official screenshots of the maps, I will update this post accordingly.
