Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation Map Pack DLC Coming Later This Month

As usual, Activision has announced that the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops map pack DLC will be coming to PlayStation 3 a month after the Xbox 360 version. The Annihilation Map Pack bundles five new maps including four multiplayer maps and the obligatory zombie one, just like First Strike and Escalation before it.

The four multiplayer maps are Drive-In, Hazard, Silo and Hangar 18, while the new zombie map is Shangri-La, hidden deep within the jungle where the undead have taken over an area surrounding an ancient shrine. "The goals we set were about quality and variety,” said Treyarch’s Online Director, Dan Bunting. “We wanted to make everything feel unique and distinct.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation Map Pack will be launching on the PlayStation Store on July 28th, with a customary double XP weekend to get you started. It should set you back the usual price of $14.99.

All I know is that the second this news hit the PlayStation Blog poor Danny Boy (Dan Amrich), got his arse flooded with hate. Not without just cause I suppose. Depends on your view of the situation. Though I must admit he is a bit too "smug" for his own good. Must be an Activision thing.

I don't believe though that "PlayStation" side Call of Duty fans would complain half as much about the map pack "delay" we get due to Microsoft's thirty day exlusive "deal" with Activision if the overall price for these map packs were even five dollars cheaper (which is really more reasonable anyway.) Still. Whether you are hater or a fan. It's a game. If you cannot find any enjoyment from this title at face value then that is on you. No, harm done.

Quality and variety??? Are they on drugs. Quality would have been a working game on release not an unfinished port 6 months down the road with 4 poor quality map packs that are overpriced

Treyarch have stated they have no influence on price so stop slating them. They're a developer supporting their product in a way that very few bother. And its the publisher who sets price. Activision know they have a hardcore CoD community who are willing to pay whatever they charge. Its greed pure and simple. Hopefully BF3 and Respawns debut title will take a large chunk from CoD's userbase and not abuse its customers like Activision with extortionate dlc

I know I'm going to get it just for the zombies map. Fifteen bucks for one map? -_- What shit. I would gladly pay that much if they released s zombie map pack with the WaW maps in it. Then people like me who bought the game cheap after the release date can enjoy the good ol' maps, although I am going to miss the MG42 :(

Why must Activision treat their fanbase like complete turds? It's like they want their business burned to the ground, literally :P

@16 I'm seriously shocked they haven't cashed in on those WAW maps. I bought this game day 1 for $45(walmart preorder special). I thought for sure they would release them shortly after. Kind of sucks also for the people who have them with the lack of others playing the maps, but I guess you also lose the dumb ass kids.

@17 the w@w zombie maps would be the ONLY reason I would get any dlc for black ops, by I bought them or w@w so I'd be reluctant to buy them again, maybe they should do imports like GH did
