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, Activision

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!

Is there any way I can just buy the zombie map alone? Fifteen bucks is a lot of money for one f***ing map..The multiplayer is so God awful I can’t stand it and will never play it again..Anyone?? Zombies isn’t THAT great..

+ twentyXDsix on June 4th, 2011 at 8:00 am said:

so having an opinion is wrong? if so, yours is obviously in the wrong, since more people prefer CoD…. but here i am once again trying to bring rational thinking to someone who cant turn off their caps lock… i should know better by now…
KZ3 campaign was good, but their online is and always has been garbage

A $15 credit in everybody’s store wallet would sure satisfy me for the inconvenience, but to be honest, this is the first time i’ve ever had an issue at all with ANY of my PS consoles. and i get to play with you guys for free. they kinda don’t really OWE us anything. That being said, customer satisfaction is ALWAYS the answer, so take the minor hit and give us something to be proud PS users again. let us brag to those X-Boxers how well you take care of us and i’ll stay loyal. ….And for god sakes, hurry with those damned zombies, i’m jonesing over here!!!

Seriously? You guys weren’t whining when PSN was down itself, but when a map pack is delayed a week? A week? PSN was down for about 3 weeks and 5 days, and the time for PSN to come back wasn’t even set. This time you have a set date, and not to mention PS Plus with those nice and shiny 2 new games you now have. I can’t believe what I’m reading… wow, you guys are so fake

the only reason cod has a larger fanbase is because its on 3 platforms. act did this to make a profit. its why a lot of other fps who are only on one platform fanbase is small. kz, gow, halo, etc…cod just cant compete on one platform and they know this.

A lot of people have said that the date was suppost to be June 3rd, and I have seen that on various other websites, so I don’t understand why you’re saying that it wasn’t actually announced…
Also, there should be a discount on this, because of it being released later than Xbox and for the store being down.
I just want to say as well, even though the store is up, it keeps saying error has occured and then it’s fine again…
Serious work to do.

the reason killzone is only on ps3 is because ps3 is the lowest point of interest in cod clue map pack are always late

Wow Activision is one pathetic and greedy company! i can understand the 15$ an add on, that don’t bother me, its just they took a bribe pretty much, from Microsoft to get the add-on more than a month earlier than on PS3. Then when Modern Warfare 3 comes out, they want you to pay monthly for Call of Duty Elite or whatever it’s called. As if they don’t make enough money on the franchise alone. They gross nearly $1 Billion per game plus add ons. I don’t think I’m gonna get MW3 now considering the add ons for that are probably gonna be like $50 per map and 360 will get it like 6 months before PS3. Yeah I’m just gonna stick with the Battlefield series. It’s more fun and interactive anyways.
