A release date has been announced for the next map pack DLC for popular FPS Call of Duty: Black Ops. Unsurprisingly, it will launch as an Xbox 360 exclusive. Escalation will feature five new maps, one of which is an all new “Zombies experience”. The new maps are as follows:

  • Hotel: A Cuban luxury hotel and casino against the vivid backdrop of old Havana
  • Convoy : The scene of an ambushed US military convoy
  • Zoo: An abandoned Soviet Russian Zoo
  • Stockpile: A remote Russian farm town housing secret WMD facilities

No release date for the PS3 or PC versions of the map pack have been revealed.  Escalation is the second map pack released for Black Ops. It will be available for the 360 on May 3rd. Don’t you wonder what the zombie stage is like?
