First Call of Duty: Black Ops Map Pack Announced

Call of Duty: Black Ops has sold a few copies since being launched. Now, all those fans are getting the first map pack from Treyarch.

Titled “First Strike,” the pack will include four multiplayer maps and one zombie map. It will release on Feb. 1, 2011 on XBox 360, and will sell for $15 (1200 MS Points). Here’s some info on the maps:

  • Discovery – Antarctic German research station, abandoned from World War II.
  • Stadium – Hockey rink in northeastern United States.
  • Berlin Wall – Takes place at Checkpoint Charlie. Is a battle between East and West Berlin.
  • Kowloon – Inspired from the single-player campaign based off of Kowloon city in China. It’s a rooftop map.
  • Ascension – Zombie map

There’s been no announcement of a date for PS3 and PC release of the map pack yet.

This announcement shows that Activision is perfectly happy with the $15 price point that Call of Duty fans paid for map packs for previous titles. Personally, I think it’s atrocious that gamers are spending the $15 they could use to buy the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam expansion for a few recycled map locations, especially given the mediocre nature of the multiplayer in Black Ops.

And there you have it, more reason to hate the game even more than you already hate it.
