    Australian retailer GAME has seemingly revealed the next Black Ops map-pack: "Escalation." According to a flyer the company reportedly posted on the company's site (and later removed), "Escalation" will consist of five maps and will be released on May 3. Here are the brief descriptions of the maps that will be available (if this turns out to be true, of course)

    Seize the Zoo
    Take the Hotel
    Secure the Convoy
    Raid the Stockpile
    Survive Call of the Dead.

    It looks like four "regular" maps and one zombie map. According to the flyer, the map pack will be for the Xbox 360 before a PS3 and PC version is released.

    We'll let you know whether this turns out to be true... but it seems pretty legit to me. [/p]

    Why do the maps sound awesome and why does the image in the OP look fantastic as well? I don't really find them remotely interesting. But that's just me and my weird opinion.

    Anybody else think the map names are uninspired? "Seize the zoo" "Take the hotel" "Secure the convoy"
    Oh wow, i think they took 5 minutes to come up with those...

    Well there's the first map pack in years that I won't be buying. Black Ops is a huge let down, and I'm really frustrated with it now. Back to playing CoD4 for me! [​IMG]

    EDIT: I'm pretty sure the maps are just called "Zoo," "Hotel," "Convoy," and "Stockpile." Not sure what the Zombie one will be called, probably not "Survive." [​IMG] CoD maps always (correct me if I'm wrong) have one word names.

    Point still standing, they didn't come up with anything better :/ Even if it was only temporary names for an ad, I'd try to sell it and come up with better names than that...

    I really want this to be true but they just don't sound like maps that they'd make. The first map pack had a theme to it. a setting. there are just objectives in the titles!

    What exactly was the "theme" to First Strike?

    Yeah, the map pack was called first strike. but I was referring to the levels. But you are right on that one. I'm just thinking that it might not exist because there's so little information to go on.

    Am I the only one who thinks 1200 MSP is too much for a lousy map pack. thats $15 which is 1/4 of the games retail price, I expect a lot more content for that price, map packs should be like 400-800msp at the most.

    What if the new maps are not multiplayer maps, but new campaign maps?... Just a thought... [​IMG]

    I agree with you. [​IMG]

    That could have worked for MW2 with Spec Ops but the Black Ops campaign has a tight enough ending.

    The maps are probably going to end up only being the Bigger letters on that poster. Zoo, Stockpile, Survive, etc.
