As of yesterday (April 5, 2011), word of a second Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack was leaked by an Australian game company. The map pack is titled “Escalation”, and is due out on May 3, 2011, once again Xbox 360 owners will get this one first. I expect to see a PC and PS3 release a month later in June. According to the poster, the 4 new multiplayer maps are titled, “Zoo”, “Hotel”, “Stockpile”, “Convoy”, and a new zombie map titled, “Call of the Dead”. Whether this is a reliable source or not is up to you, but to me the poster looks very official. I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for this one, and can’t wait to see what they do with the map “Zoo”, animal attacks perhaps?
For all of you who love leveling up in Call of Duty: Black Ops more than playing the actual game, this weekend is for you. Starting today until Monday night players can sign on to the games multiplayer and earn double the experience points. This is the first weekend event Treyarch has announced for Black Ops to coincide with the new map pack release. If you don’t own an Xbox 360, don’t worry Treyarch took Microsoft’s dick out of its mouth for this one and made it available cross platform. So whether you prefer to flail you arms around on the Wii, play online for free on the PS3, or use the precision and accuracy of the keyboard & mouse on the PC you’ll all be able to take part in this event. I’ll be expecting a lot of players online, hopefully Treyarch’s servers can handle it.
