Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike map expansion drops today
Dedicated gamers stayed up all night waiting for the latest expansion of Call of Duty: Black Ops, which dropped Tuesday morning on the Xbox 360 for 1,200 Microsoft Points, or about $15.
This is the first round of downloadable content for Treyarch's wildly successful game, and has five new levels, four multi-player maps, and a zombie level called Ascension. (Check out the super-spooky preview here.)
The game is rated "M" for mature-- for players 17 and older.
The maps put gamers in locations such as the Berlin Wall's Checkpoint Charlie, an Antarctic research facility, a zip-line laden version of Kowloon, Hong Kong, and an abandoned stadium.
Treyarch Community Manager Josh Olin was up all night tweeting and building hype for the release. Olin tweeted out a free download code and announced that the company would be giving away free downloads all day.
