Call of Duty: Black Ops “Escalation” Map Pack DLC Coming in May?

call of duty black ops escalation dlc

A flyer has recently leaked that indicates that Call of Duty: Black Ops may be getting it’s 2nd Map Pack DLC on May 3rd called “Escalation”. The flyer was accidentally posted on GAME’s Australian website according to, which would explain the backwards date to those in the US thinking that this indicates it should have come out in March.

So from what we can tell from the flyer, the DLC will consist of 4 new multiplayer maps as well as a new zombie map, just like the “First Strike” DLC. If the similarities are any comparison we can expect this one to run 1200 MS points ($15) just as the last one did and be exclusive to the Xbox 360 for about a month or so before coming to the PS3 and then later to the PC. The 4 multiplayer maps seem pretty obviously titled, “Zoo”, “Hotel”, “Convoy” and “Stockpile” while the Zombie map looks to be called “Survive”.

No official announcement has been made regarding a 2nd map pack DLC for Black Ops, but this seems pretty legit. Thoughts?
