Microsoft mouthpiece Major Nelson has announced the first map pack for mammoth FPS Call of Duty: Black Ops.

As expected, the map pack will appear on Xbox 360 first. The First Strike will hit Xbox Live on 1st February and set you back 1200 MS Points (10).

Four competitive maps are included. Discovery is set in the Antarctic research station from the campaign. Kowloon is set on the rooftops of Hong Kong, again, from the campaign. Berlin Wall has you fragging at Checkpoint Charlie. And Stadium is set in an American hockey rink. There's a zombie map, too, called Ascension.

The map pack is yet to be dated for PC and PlayStation 3, but we expect a month of exclusivity on Xbox Live.

Tom looked down his iron sight and spotted an 8/10 in Eurogamer's Call of Duty: Black Ops review. "The campaign is relentlessly aggressive and spectacular a Jerry Bruckheimer tribute act stuck in permanent encore while the multiplayer modes are a mixture of smart tweaks to working formulas, as focused on protecting that guaranteed bottom line as the campaign's yellow objective cursor is on making sure you never falter," he wrote.
