We're just about two weeks away from the sure-to-be blockbuster (and temporarily exclusive) release of First Strike, the first map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, and to celebrate Activision's created a video preview detailing everything your $15 gets you. Treyarch Online Director Dan Bunting promises "more verticality" and "more sniper opportunities" in these new multiplayer maps, titled Kowloon (it has ziplines!), Discovery (it has a collapsible bridge!), Berlin Wall (you can figure this one out), and Stadium (built for run-and-gun).
Not on display in this video: the new zombie map, Ascension. But don't worry, with the hype-train still two weeks from its destination, we don't think that stop is too far off.
Call of Duty: Black Ops is a first-person shooter with stealth and tactical play aspect that puts players in the role of a shadow soldier fighting in a variety of historically representative fictional Black Ops missions of the Cold War era. Created with the input of actual Black Ops soldiers from the time, the game mixes traditional Call of Duty tactical shooter gameplay with new gameplay options designed to expand the players' experience. Additional features include extensive multiplayer options, along with new vehicles and explosive new weapons.
