Black Ops Rezurrection Map Pack is All Zombies
Activision has revealed that a fourth downloadable map pack is in development for Call of Duty: Black Ops.
Known as Resurrection, the map pack is expected to be out this quarter, according to a press release on the companys financial results for its second quarter. That means it should be in the hands of at least Xbox 360 gamers by the end of September, although, like the others, itll also end up on PS3 and PC at some point.
No further details were shared, but with an Activision Blizzard conference call having just kicked off, we may receive some additional information shortly.
The most recent map pack, Annihilation, was released on July 28 for PS3 and PC gamers, following an Xbox 360 release on June 28.
Update: The contents of the Resurrection map pack -- which is in fact called Rezurrection -- have been detailed, and, as many fans have asked for, its an all-Zombies update. There will be five maps: four remastered and updated maps from World at War (Nacht der Untoten, Verruckt, Shi No Numa, and Der Riese), which were included with the Hardened and Prestige editions of Black Ops, and a new map called Moon.
Its hinted that things will be different on the Moon level (low gravity, perhaps?), but that information wasnt forthcoming. A bonus Moon dashboard theme for 360 is included with the DLC, as is the official soundtrack for Zombies map (plus three new tracks).
As for the Rezurrection name, Zombies creative lead Jimmy Zelinski told One of Swords, "You never know where hints and Easter eggs may appear in Zombies. What looks like a typo may be a typo... but it might also be the hidden truth behind everything.
The DLC will be available on August 23 on Xbox 360, and, given past trends, late September on PC and PS3. It will cost 1,200 Microsoft Points ($15) like the previous three map packs, but anyone who purchased the Hardened or Prestige editions (thereby granting them access to four of these five maps) will get the DLC for free.
