Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation Map Pack Put Under the Microscope in Preview Video

Activision and Treyarch have another map pack lined up for Call of Duty: Black Ops, which you'll already know about. It's called the Escalation Map Pack - for those of you who might have been in cryostasis for the last few months - and it bundles four new multiplayer maps and one new zombies map in one bullet-riddled DLC add-on.

There's the 'Hotel', 'Convoy', 'Zoo' and 'Storage' maps to head into for some online multiplayer action (it's quite popular, apparently) and the 'Call of the Dead' zombie map, where you'll be able to fight yet more slavering hordes of undead brain-chompers.

For a good look at the new multiplayer maps you'll find in the Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation Map Pack when it eventually materialises on the PlayStation Network, check out the new preview trailer and 13 Escalation screens in the gallery. Expect new trophies and a price tag of $14.99 although this has yet to be confirmed, as has a date.

lol i forgot the last map pack even existed its been so long since ive played this game.

I would much rather pay for new guns/maps/game types than for more maps of the same.

It's a shame, because i literally didnt take COD4 out of my machine for 3 months solid. MW2 i played most days, but i've lost all interest in Black ops, i cant explain why... it just doesnt interest me as much as it used to :(

I would possibly be more interested but the prices are so ridiculously steep!

LOL another overpriced map-pack I won't be getting, and people complained about MW2 high price DLC. Activision your disapointing more and more. I'm seriously thinking of changing FPS and I've played every CoD since Classic, gonna wait until BF3 comes out and check it out because CoD is getting BORING!

PS: Check the bottom right corner on the end of the video "XBox Live First" can this be confirmed? if so another reason not to get it.

Looks cool, I get these map packs only for the zombies. I wish there was a way to buy each map individually instead of the whole pack because then I'd just buy the zombie maps.

@6 - Microsoft have a 3 year deal with Activision that lets Xbox get Map-packs a month before PS3. Ends in 2012. And @10 you just reminded me of a great Greenday song =) thanks!

Whats with all theses previews ignoring zombies, its the fact people will just buy it in hopes the zombie map doesnt suck, face it, at least 75% of us buy this solely for zombies. Give us a map preview. We don't want another "Five" and the "New Zombies Characters" rumor gives me a bad buzz.

I dont know if I am gonna buy this. I havent played Black Ops in a month now, not a big fan of it. I prefer MW2, which I still play. If I do get this, it will probably be only for zombies.

The Zombies map looks...interesting. A lighthouse? Does this mean we are going to be seeing a larger, outdoors map? The last map pack only had me barely interested for about 3 weeks, so they are going to need to impress me before I hand over my $15.

@9 totally agree I love zombies but having to pay full price for multiplayer maps aswell that I will never play on sucks! Not sure I will bother getting this one as am sick of being ripped off.

@14, this video is European based. So they do their dates different than us, so 3-5-2011 to them is 5-3-2011 to us. That is also Xbox release so PS3 users won't get it until June
