Mastodon 'Call of Duty: Black Ops' Map Pack Preview - 'First Strike'

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops’ Map Pack Preview – ‘First Strike’

While Call of Duty: Black Ops didn’t reign two years in a row as game of the year, that doesn’t mean we love it any less. After all, you don’t become one of the highest selling games of all time along with being the highest first day entertainment franchise in history if you aren’t a damn good game.  As previously announced, the first map pack titled “First Strike” will be coming first to the XBox 360 on February 1st before later being ported over to the PlayStation 3.

The “First Strike” Map Pack will include four traditional multiplayer maps as well as one additional Zombie mode map. While no information was given on the Zombie map other than its name Ascension, the trailer below gives a quick peek at the development behind and the layouts of the other four maps in this pack.

Kowloon takes place in a revamped layout of the Kowloon single player level. Having a very similar feel to the streets of Brazil from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Kowloon offers players their first and only opportunity to use a zip line to traverse through a level. This zip line looks like a quite risky venture as it will leave a player completely exposed and weaponless. The reward however is the ability to cross great distances of the map at tremendous speed.

Another unique map is Discovery. Taking place in an arctic research lab, Discovery shows what may be Call of Duty’s first steps towards destructible environments. In Discovery there is a choke point over the chasm that divides the level in half where players must cross a bridge to reach their opponents. This bridge can be destroyed with proper explosives. Imagine what this could do for the game with Red Faction style level physics on top of the already intense Call of Duty multiplayer.

Berlin Wall also features a great design choice with the inclusion of a no man’s land. In this area, players can quickly get across the map but this time there isn’t much fear of other players. The reason for that is because this area is protected by autoturrets which are designed to take down anyone foolish enough to try to cross between East and West Berlin.

Stadium seems to be the most traditional of the maps. In it, players will be more focused on pure classic strategy using a level’s design and tight corners as a way to ambush opponents.

Check out the video below for more details in First Strike for Call of Duty: Black Ops and make sure to check it out on XBox 360 when it hits on February 1st.

    hahaha just like xbox fans just ignore all the facts and work off of just opinion i like how no one had anything to say about my FACT filled post because no one else knows the fact in here everyone is talking out of there ass. if yall would take you head out of your ass and look at facts you would see it a night and day difference.

    right noone can say about the ring of death because out of my group of mates 3 have ps3s and the rest have xboxs…. I have both…..all 3 ps3s have broken mine hasnt coz its hardly touched!…. and had to be repaired we’ve all had our console for the exact same time no xboxs have failed! xbox live partys are so much more convenient than bringing up the menu and typing in wot u wanna say…gamerscore brings more competiteve gaming and paying for online isnt that bad if u have that money to spend. And who really cares about browsing the internet its slow as f**k and wen u have a laptop that can do that for you. Everybody has there opinion which is fine but the facts for me say the xbox is better especially the new one. Plus the xbox DOES NOT lag as much! and I would definatly put more trust in microsoft than sony. My ps3 for me is a cheap blu ray player.

    and another thing for you xbox fanboys people always talk about 1080p but no one one hear even knows what that means in the electronics world you can only recieve 1080p resolution from 2 soarces 1 is a blueray disc and 2 is through an HDMI there has only been 2 games ever to come out in true 1080p resolution and ps3 owners know which ones im talking about because they were ps3 exclusives and one was game of the year UNCHARTED 2 and GT5 and one is coming out soon that is in 3D ps3 fans know what in talking about cause it was anounced at E3 and is only coming out for PS3 so there you go xbox fanboys look up facts if you think im wrong

  • tucanchu69
    February 4, 2011 at 3:52 pm

    oh and one more thing an xbox cannot do all you xbox fanboys say that xbox has better picture and sound is not accuate see both xbox and ps3 can project in 1080p res but i guess so that is the best out right now for now we will cross that bridge when we get there but sound is better and this is why ps3 can produce 7.2ch dolby didigtal tru HD master audio wuich is the best out right now and it can only be acheaved from a Blueray Disc so there you have it ps3 is more advanced than xbox cause it can produce things from it that didnt even exsist when both systems came out so goes to show you the ps3 posibilities are endless and we dont even know it p.s and 3D picture also which also didnt exist when they came out.

  • tucanchu69
    February 4, 2011 at 3:07 pm

    xbox fanboys dont realize that a ps3 hasnt even been pushed to its limit yet see look at it this way 1 single sided blueray disc hold 30/40gs of info and no game to ever come out has pushed that yet oh except for GT5 has 25gs which takes over an hour to install and keeps installing as you play and a dual layer Blueray holds 60gs of info so look at it that way and ps3 has an upgadeable HDD mine is a 500g cause it has a CELL prossesser that can push that mutch xbox doesnot have that capability but ps3 does it with no prob that is a HDD and a Processor bigger and faster than most laptop computers so take that xbox fanboys.

  • Austin6982
    February 3, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    we all know that xbox fanboys only talk trash about ps3 because they have never owned one and only claimed to own one but we all know they are full of shit because it they have owned one then they would not talk trash about it and they would be using the xbox as a ps3 stand after the red ring of death.

    I have all 3, the Wii is never touched, the Xbox has failed me 6 times and now collects dust and the ps3 is my media centre…it launched its original how long ago and STILL does more then the “new” xbox..i once owned just the xbox and although the controller is in my opinion better then the PS3, it just doesnt match up to the freedom of ps3, i was once a ps3 hater but if you get up off your cheap asses and get a playstation the xbox literally becomes obsolete…buying batteries forthe controller, paying for online, over heating, no blu ray, up until recently no HDMI, no wireless until the last 5 months, flimsy usb door on the front, no web browsing, no card reader, had to download an update to play divx, a sliding tray for the games…what year is this…enough said…

  • Rocco
    February 2, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    I love how everyone sits here and argues for what system they have… I have a ps3 (1st one) and a 360 (3rd one) xbox has a terrible fail rate and not one can deny that. But really though the PS3 hasn’t even begun to show its true form yet… The blue ray feature is going to allow so much more promising games and graphics… the only good use an xbox has is the party chat other than that over all rating for the xbox = FAIL… PS3=FTMFW

  • Adamesmith

    Hey retard, our Sony Network is free, those chumps pay a premium which in turn gives them the $$$ to pay off Activison for an exclusive release to pretend that Xbox is superior to PS3.

    Why don’t all u idiot shut the fuck up. Neither console are better then the other one. They both are the same. Some game for xbox doesnt come out for ps3 and some Ps3 game doesnt come out for xbox. A real hardcore gamer get both console.

      ps3 has a dashboard you dumb cunt. we just dont have multitasking. and so what its called a fucking ipod or computer if you want to listen to music. its called get a job so you can afford more electronics if you want more things other than buying a shitty ass 360 that has a 3 year warrinty because microsoft cant even trust there own product because they know that the red ring always happens. 360 has its advantages but theres people out there that tell there selves “i shouldve bought a ps3 instead” and your probably one of them
