It’s Official!

Activision announced today that the rumours of a second DLC map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops are true. The map titles and release date remain the same, but we are given a new poster with the date in the correct (North American) order.

Activision also gave us a little more information on each of the new maps. “Zoo” will “takes you on a wild ride in an abandoned Soviet Russian Zoo, with danger at every turn”. On the map “Hotel” players will duke it out “on the roof of a Cuban luxury hotel and casino against the vivid backdrop of old Havana”. “Convoy” promises to “delivers intense, close-quarters combat at the scene of an ambushed US military convoy”. “Stockpile” will “pits players in a remote Russian farm town housing secret WMD facilities”. Finally perhaps the most exciting of the 5, “Call of the Dead” offers all new playable characters and promises to be a very special creation for all Zombie fans.

On top of this, there was also an announcement of a third double XP weekend to tie in with the new map pack release. It will be available cross platform and begin on Friday May 6th.
