Activision and developer Treyarch have released the first trailer for First Strike, the first downloadable map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops. The pack will be available to download from Xbox Live on February 1 for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15) with a PC and PS3 release coming later (the Modern Warfare 2 maps typically took five to six weeks to reach the PC/PS3).
Treyarch used this DLC pack to respond to some fan complaints, citing more verticality and more sniper opportunities in the five maps:
Kowloon: Inspired by the Kowloon level from the single-player campaign. Features zip lines to quickly get from point A to point B.
Discovery: An Antarctic research station divided by a deep chasm.
Berlin Wall: The largest map, set in and around Checkpoint Charlie on both sides of Germany.
Stadium: Set inside a hockey arena in the US, the map features close quarters fighting and gives off strong vibes of Lake Placid and the Olympic battle for Cold War supremacy that was fought there (“Do you believe in miracles? YES!”).
Ascension: First Strike’s Zombie Mode map was sadly absent from this trailer.
