Black Ops: Escalation pack finally released.

Call of Duty: Black Ops' Escalation pack at last lands on PS3, a month after its initial Xbox 360 launch.

For 10.99, yours will be five new maps to the mix, including George Romero-inspired zombie killing in Call of the Dead. There's even a digital version of Sarah Michelle Gellar.
