The rumoured Escalation DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops has been confirmed.

As detailed on Major Nelson's blog, Escalation will feature four new multiplayer maps and "an epic Zombies experience with all-new playable characters."

The Hotel map is set on the roof of a luxury Cuban hotel and casino; Convoy offers close-quarters combat at the scene of an ambushed US military convoy; Zoo takes place in an abandoned Soviet Zoo and Stockpile drops players into a remote Russian farm town housing secret WMD facilities.

No further details were given as to exactly what we can expect from that new Zombies content, or how much the pack will sell for.

Thanks to Microsoft's exclusivity deal, Xbox Live Arcade gets it first from 3rd May, with PC and PlayStation 3 roll-outs as yet unconfirmed.
