Call of Duty: Black Ops takes players behind enemy lines in an entirely new chapter in the first-person action series. Black Ops is set during the Cold War era featuring at least two main characters, multiplayer that goes beyond the single-player story, and a two- to four-player co-op mode.

The agreement which began in 2009 now extends for all add ons and map packs from the mega-blockbuster Call of Duty franchise through 2012, including Call of Duty: Black Ops.

"Our Treyarch Studio is doing something special with Call of Duty: Black Ops, which is why we're thrilled to announce this Xbox Live agreement," said Philip Earl, Executive Vice President & General Manager of Activision's Call of Duty Business Unit.  "This agreement reflects our shared and continued focus on creating the most compelling and exciting content releases for fans around the world."

With billions of hours logged online, Call of Duty titles consistently rank atop Xbox Live's most-played charts, making it the largest Call of Duty community of any entertainment system.  

"With 25 million members, Xbox Live is the industry's premier online gaming service that establishes the best in cooperative and multiplayer online play for blockbuster franchises like Call of Duty," said Marc Whitten, Microsoft's corporate vice president of Xbox Live. "With the release of game add ons and map packs coming first to Xbox 360, Xbox Live is the place to play Call of Duty for years to come."
