COD: Black Ops Escalation DLC outed

Coming 3rd May, says GAME Australia.

The second map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops will be known as Escalation. And it's due for release on 3rd May.

That's what GAME Australia let slip this afternoon on a digital flyer which, although now removed, has been immortalised on VG247.

Like other Call of Duty map packs, Escalation offers five new levels. The poster calls the five new scenarios "Seize the Zoo", "Take the Hotel", "Secure the Convoy", "Raid the Stockpile" and "Survive the Call of the Dead".

The last sounds like a new zombie level.

Because of an exclusivity deal between Microsoft and Activision, Escalation will release first on Xbox 360. There's no indication of when a PS3 version will appear - First Strike took an extra month to make its way to PS3.

There's also no mention of price, although the solitary First Strike map mack for Black Ops cost 1200 Microsoft Points.

First Strike was released for Black Ops in February, and scored 7/10 on Eurogamer.
