More Call of Duty Black Ops maps coming in May


Call of Duty: Black Ops online players will be thrilled to hear there will be a new set of multiplayer maps to download next month.

The new map pack – Escalation – includes four new multiplayer maps and an all-new Zombie map that will be available on Xbox Live on May 3 and PS3 in June.

Call of Duty: Black Ops became the biggest entertainment release of all time when it was launched in November.

 Escalation follows closely on the success of the first Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack First Strike which was released in February.   

The four new maps in Escalation will be Zoo, Convoy, Hotel and Stockpile along with the new Zombie map – Call of the Dead.

Zoo is set against the backdrop of an abandoned Russian zoo. No word yet if there are any animals still lurking about waiting to pounce.

In Convoy, players are thrust into action at the site of an ambushed US military convoy with tension at an all-time high.

For Hotel players are transported to do battle against the enemy on the rooftop of a luxury Cuban hotel and casino in Havana.

With Stockpile the action takes place in a remote Russian farm town which harbours a few secrets including a missile facility.

“And I don’t want to spoil any surprises for Zombies fans, but Call of the Dead takes it to a whole new level.”


Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation map pack will be available from May 3 on Xbox Live. PlayStation 3 players have to wait a month before it is available on the PlayStation Network.

To celebrate the release of Escalation on May 3 there will be a double XP weekend starting May 6.
