Posted by at 3:18 pm on January 31, 2011

The First Strike map pack for Black Ops launches tomorrow on the Xbox 360 for 1,200 Microsoft Points. The release of the paid DLC will be followed by a Black Ops double-XP weekend.

Xbox Live Director of Programming Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb made the double-XP weekend announcement via a podcast on his blog, and Treyarch Community Manager Josh Olin.

First Strike includes four new multiplayer maps and a new Zombie mode map, Ascension.

Multiplayer Maps

  • Discovery — Set in the German’s abandoned Antarctic research station from the single-player campaign.
  • Kowloon — Shoot it out on the rainy rooftops of Kowloon City, inspired by the level from the single-player campaign.
  • Berlin Wall — The best-known Berlin Wall crossing during the Cold War was known as Checkpoint Charlie. That’s where you’ll do battle.
  • Stadium — Do you believe in miracles? A hockey arena set in the Northeast U.S. that has us thinking Lake Placid and the Olympic Miracle on Ice.

First Strike will launch as an Xbox 360 exclusive on February 1 for 1,200 Microsoft Points or $15. Treyarch and Activision have not yet announced plans for the PlayStation 3 and PC launch.
