Call of Duty: Black Ops - First Strike DLC (X360)

Call of Duty: Black Ops - First Strike adds five all new action-packed maps that span the globe. “Berlin Wall,” a new map surrounding the iconic barrier, gives players access to both sides of Cold War Berlin; “Stadium” delivers plenty of fast-paced, close-quarters combat set in the backdrop of a sports complex; “Discovery” is an abandoned German outpost set along the coast of Antarctica; “Kowloon” spans the tiered levels of high-rises and rooftops of Kowloon City, Hong Kong. “First Strike” also features an all new experience for the fan-favourite Zombies mode. The new level, “Ascension” pits players against hoards of vicious, perk-stealing zombie monkeys, flesh-eating Soviet Zombies and more in a trap-filled, Cold War era cosmodrome.

“Our fans mean everything to us,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch, “so we are thrilled to be able to provide the Black Ops community with exciting new gameplay that will extend their multiplayer and Zombies experiences.   The team has given it their all, as we crafted the maps in “First Strike” while taking into account our community to make sure that this content delivers compelling and unique experiences that will appeal to all different play styles.
