Black Ops DLC to hit Xbox ahead of other consoles
The first downloadable content pack for the dominant first person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops has been announced with the additional gameplay options to be made available from February 1st.
Dubbed ‘First Strike’ the DLC will feature a new multiplayer map pack that contains four new regular maps and a single additional zombie environment building on what has quickly become the biggest entertainment release of 2010 as well as the all-format gaming charts' Christmas No 1.
The new multiplayer maps will see gamers competing in the Hong Kong and Artic Circle levels previously visited in the existing single-player campaign mode, as well as landing in new environments set at the Berlin Wall and within the confines of an ice hockey stadium.
Sure to cause further controversy with the PS3 COD gamers that felt cheated by an inferior game offering, the first Black Ops DLC will initially land exclusively on the Xbox 360 with additional consoles expected to be on the receiving end of the new gameplay modes later in the month. Wannabe DLC gamers will have to fork over $15, 1,200 Microsoft Points, in order to download the additional content.
