First up is the "Berlin Wall" map based around the iconic barrier, giving gamers access to both sides of Cold War Berlin. "Discovery" drops you near a German outpost set along the coast of Antarctica, while “Kowloon” places you amongst the rooftops of Kowloon City, Hon Kong.

For those seeking close quarters multiplayer action, there's the "Stadium" map which is set against the background of a sports complex.

It wouldn't be COD if we didn't have some zombie-slaying action, and with the new "Acension" level you can proceed to plough your way throughzombie monkeys and flesh-eating Soviet Zombies.

You can download "First Strike" from Xbox LIVE now. For those eager PS3 and PC gamers wondering when they can get the new DLC, it should be with you in March.
