Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation DLC Comes to PS3 June 10

Dan Amrich's Avatar Posted by on Jun 03, 2011 // Community Manager, Ubisoft

Hopefully everybody enjoyed the double XP period for Call of Duty: Black Ops in May – neither Treyarch nor Activision wanted to see any of the PS3 fans miss out just because of the technical issues. Now the next round of Black Ops action is locked and loaded: the long-awaited Escalation DLC pack will be available in the PlayStation Store on Friday, June 10th.

Escalation features five big chunks of content – four multiplayer maps and one star-studded Zombies experience unlike any other. For fans of competitive combat, your new battlegrounds await:

  • HOTEL takes the sunny splendor of a luxirous Cuban casino resort and turns it into a bullet-riddled war zone. Details like the blown casino safe and poolside bar offer some unusual cover for run-and-gunners, but thanks to the high vantage points at opposite ends, it’s also a great map for snipers.
  • Why not visit the ZOO? The big cats and deadly reptiles left this abandoned Russian animal park long ago, but the overgrown, dilapidated facility still plays host to the world’s most dangerous game. Hide below in the bear lair or snipe from above on the monorail track – you’ve got the run of the place.

MP Match ZooMP Match Convoy

  • If you’re looking for a slice of classic Americana, check out the small-town motel and diner near the ambushed CONVOY. The freeway overpass has collapsed, leaving a missile stranded above and rubble littered below – not to mention a pre-fab house, apparently in transit by truck when the attack hit, now toppled on its side in ruins. Talk about trailer trash.

MP Stockpile 2

  • STOCKPILE looks like an ordinary town in remote Russia…until you find the warhead hidden in the building in the center of town. Use switches to slide the huge steel doors up and down – good for restricting access during objective-based games.


Last but not least, CALL OF THE DEAD goes meta on zombie lore itself with a unique setup: Cinema’s zombie godfather George A. Romero is making his latest undead epic – starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Robert Englund, Michael Rooker, and Danny Trejo – only to have a real zombie apocalypse break out, infecting the director himself and causing him to stalk you throughout the level. All the stars performed their roles with full motion capture and voice-over, so when you and three friends take on wave after wave of the zombie horde, you’ll do so as some of Hollywood’s most famous monster mashers. Proof positive that there’s a zombie killer in all of us.

Escalation will be available in the PlayStation Store on Friday, June 10, and to celebrate, the double XP will flow once more – enjoy twice the rewards for your efforts through Sunday, June 12. It’s also a perfect time to try out some my unorthodox multiplayer strategies that will keep your opponents guessing.

Enjoy next weekend – I’ll see you online!

What time can I download it. I’ll stay up all night if i have too!!


+ Gamemasta11 on June 9th, 2011 at 7:11 pm said:

I would like to know the reason that Playstation 3 has to wait an extended period of time longer than Xbox 360 to get the new DLC. And I would also like to know why they never told us a release date until a week before it comes out… I was very disapointed


+ Gamemasta11 on June 9th, 2011 at 7:17 pm said:

Is there gonna be a midnight release for NY state????


+ ty31h on June 9th, 2011 at 7:46 pm said:

To answer your question Gamemasta11, there will not be a release that singles out a specific territory. Once the DLC is released it will be available to everyone.

+ WhosYoDaddy45 on June 9th, 2011 at 9:07 pm said:

It’s not fair that we get DLC’s so much l8r than Xbox. I don’t see the point in it. Y do they get it sooner? Cold u explain somehow. Informing yur supporters is the very least one could do.


+ WhosYoDaddy45 on June 9th, 2011 at 9:19 pm said:

Y’all should stop using infinity ward and keep treyarch. Did u see how popular zombies are? Way more than special ops was. All I’m saying is Treyarch knows how to bring in the cash. WITH ZOMBIES!

Dont get this map pack if you hate campers, thats all it is. Corners and.junk to camp by and no there was no discount for playstation plus members. I want a refund, even though that wont happen. Maybee ill hook up a noob tube and camp like the losers that you see all over this crappy map pack. Save your money and hope for better with MW3…

@dan amrich what is the deal with these codes everyone is passing around on ps3? the code is I8PH-CIBD-RK2H where are these codes comeing from and is this just a scam? when you put in in the ps3 card there is an amount of $50 on that card but it wont let you add it to your wallet in ps3 store? i was just really gettin tired of getting these messages and was just wondering is there anything to this?

+ kayser9soze on June 10th, 2011 at 9:48 am said:

$15 for a map pack that’s well over a month old to other consoles? A non exclusive at that…was looking forward to buying this but at these prices hell no!! Companies then wonder why piracy is so rampant with games..add to this now they want to shove cod elite on us at a monthly rate…talk about nickel and diming yourself out of favor with consumers. I think it’s time for me to go back to buying second hand games instead of buying stuff at launch…First it was $5 dlc they saw we have no problem paying that…then it was $10 dlc’s saw we had no problem buying that..now $15 and they’ll see you have no problem paying that so what’s next $20 and $25 dlc? For $15 I can go buy an entire game that will take me weeks to finish versus a map pack who’s glory will wear out after the first 5 matches on each map.
