Black Ops First Strike Map Pack Details Emerge
The first details for Black Ops’ “First Strike” map pack have been revealed by Treyarch’s producer Dan Bunting.
Talking on Major Nelson’s podcast, Bunting revealed that the First Strike map pack will hit Xbox 360 on February 1st, 2011. This release will be exclusive to Xbox Live initially (should hit PS3 and PC around a month later,) and cost 1200 MSP/$15.
Black Ops First Strike map pack will be made up of four new multiplayer maps and one new Zombie map. “Berlin Wall” takes place at Checkpoint Charlie, a commonly-known crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War. “Discovery” is a arctic-based map that takes place in a snow-riddled German research station that you might recognize from the campaign. “Kowloon” is also based on a single player mission, obviously set in China. And the final map, “Stadium,” which sounds the most interesting of the four new maps, will take place in a hockey rink/sports complex! Sounds good to me.
Other than the name of the new Zombie map – which is “Ascension” - no other details were given in the podcast – which you can catch here.
