Escalation Game Add-On Now Official
It’s a good feeling when a “rumor” turns out to be true. In this case it’s the information about the Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation “add-on”.
While GAME Australia is a pretty legit source, it’s not as legit as Major Nelson. Who is the Director of Programming for the Microsoft gaming network Xbox Live. On his website, Major Nelson says:
Today Activision has announced Escalation, the next game add-on for Call of Duty: Black Ops and that it will be available first to Xbox LIVE members on Tuesday May 3rd. Escalation, the second downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, contains 5 all-new maps; featuring 4 Multiplayer maps and an epic Zombies experience with all-new playable characters. In Multiplayer, battle it out in Hotel, on the roof of a Cuban luxury hotel and casino against the vivid backdrop of old Havana; Convoy delivers intense, close-quarters combat at the scene of an ambushed US military convoy; Zoo takes you on a wild ride in an abandoned Soviet Russian Zoo, with danger at every turn; Stockpile pits players in a remote Russian farm town housing secret WMD facilities. For Zombies fans, “Escalation” features a unique Zombies experience.
And his tweet for good measure:
On one side, Major Nelson confirms what we already knew. There will be a downloadable contact pack which includes 4 multiplayer maps and a Zombies map. But Major Nelson also reveals something previously unknown to us. The Zombies map will be more than just a map, it will be a whole new experience. What this means we have yet to figure out, but when Major Nelson says that Escalation will feature a unique Zombies experience, you better be prepared for one.
How about we get the rumor mill whirring and start thinking out loud what the “Zombies experience” can be?
