Black Ops Annihilation DLC hits XBL June 28

Activision confirms third add-on for Treyarch's latest Call of Duty game; four new multiplayer maps and Shangri-La zombie level coming to Microsoft's online platform this month.


No Caption Provided As was widely suspected yesterday, Call of Duty: Black Ops will expand this month with an all-new map pack, due out first on Xbox Live.

Titled Annihilation, the new add-on for Treyarch's blockbuster hit will arrive on Xbox Live on June 28. The content will follow the precedent set by past add-ons First Strike and Escalation, in that it will be composed of four fresh multiplayer maps and one zombie level.

The new killing spaces included in the downloadable content are Hangar 18, Silo, Drive-In, and Hazard. Unfortunately, no further information was offered concerning the maps. The zombie level is titled Shangri-La, described by Activision as "an exotic and mysterious map."

Activision did not set a price for the Annihilation DLC in its announcement today, but previous map packs debuted for 1,200 Microsoft points ($15). There was no mention made of when the content will arrive on the PlayStation Network or for the PC.
