According to a post on the PlayStation Blog from Treyarch community manager Josh Olin, the First Strike map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops will arrive on Sony's PlayStation 3 on March 3. It will bear the same $15 price point of its Xbox 360 counterpart, which debuted on February 1.

As for the content, the map pack includes four new multiplayer environments ranging in locale from the Berlin Wall in Germany to a North American hockey rink. The add-on also bundles one environment for the game's zombie mode dubbed Ascension.

When the content arrives for Sony's console in March, the PC will be the only platform to not yet welcome First Strike. Activision has announced that the content will arrive for the PC sometime later in the quarter but has yet to affix a price or release date for the digital wares.
