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

Dan Amrich's Avatar + Posted by Dan Amrich 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.

COTD_POSTER

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!

I bought a 20 dolar cards yesterday, and when I founf out about this I just bought the LA Noire pass. There you have it, Treyarch. One less costumer. You make us wait a whole month, and then you tell us to wait one more week? This will go forever!

Dan why cant it come first on ps3 than on xbox and than all other plat forms ?

PS3 should get it first because it was under maintence the whole time and it was boring playing offline wasnt it ?

She was mistaken, thought they were talking about MAG DLC. She actually went back and corrected it. So, for real, July 10. :)

@ Dan Amrich – are you trying to make your point that humans make mistakes? :D Or are you really telling us to wait one more month than previously stated? July or June? I’m pretty sure you said June 10th but now you’ve stated July 10th twice….

INFINITY WARD IS BETTER THAN TREYARC MAIN MEMBERS OF INFINITY WARD FIRED BY THE CASH COW ACTI THEN THEY SAY TO TREY “GO GET A CONTRACT WITH MICROSOFT SO WE CAN RELEASE THE DLC TO 360 FIRST BECAUSE THE PLAYSTATION 3 IS SO ****** WELL DONE WHEN TREY REPORTS BACK ACTI NOTICES IW MAKING NEW MODERN WARFARE CALLS AND SAYS YOU MAKE PEOPLE PAY FOR ONLINE AND MAKE THE GAME THE ORIGINAL FORMAT THAT EVERYONES BORED OF ****** OFF AND TAKES THE PROFITS. AND THEY ALL LIVED HORRIBLY EVER AFTER

SLEDGEHAMMER GAMES ARE BEING GOOD AND HELPING INFINITY WARD INSTEAD OF ACTI AND TREY AND MAYBE ACTI AND TREY SHOULD SHUT THE **** UP AND GIVE US THE DLC WHEN WE WANT IT FOR ME THE SAME AS 360 USERS AND FOR FOR A CHEAPER PRICE WHICH I THINK SHOULD BE 5.00. CHECK OUT BFBC2 VIETNAM AND YOU’LL SEE WHAT I MEAN VIETNAM IS WAY BETTER VALUE FOR MONEY

+ SiCK-WAYZ on June 4th, 2011 at 7:09 am said:

i liked world at war, mw, n then mw2 came out n then third time was the charm. i have got bored of cod, i played black ops for a day and just didnt do anything for me. youre right, the uniqueness of cod wore off long ago. so i just waited for kz3 to come out and try something different. seriously it could use some work as with most games but hey it is its own game. i think it kills black ops and is underrated and underappreciated

their fanbase is slowly decreasing with releasing the same game over and over and overpriced downloadable crap. hoping mw3 will have big improvements and change the way the game is played. i want cod fans pissed off because they need to be kicked in the mouth. im also hoping when kz4 is released it kills cod


241

+ crockiller7 on June 4th, 2011 at 7:25 am said:

WOWOWOWOWO1 IT MIGHT BE BUT ACTI’S CASE YOU CAN TRUST THAT IT WILL BE OUT AFTER MODERN WARFARE 3 WHILE XBOX GET IT IN AUGUST AND MOST IMPORTANTLY IT WILL BE THE REYCYCLED JUNK THAT ACTI HAS GROWN SO FOND OF USING
