First Strike

Post by Simy26 on Tue Dec 21, 2010 5:27 pm

Dan Bunting, a Treyarch multiplayer dude, just announced on a Major Nelson podcast that the first Map Pack, entitled "First Strike" will be available February 1st. Unfortunately (but not surprisingly) it sounds as though this will be another Xbox exclusive, much like the map packs were for MW2. I'm guessing...and I stress guessing, that PS3 users will have to wait a month before we get them, but nothing official on that yet.

Now, map information and pricing:

Available Feb 1st, 2011 on Xbox (no date for PS3 yet)
5 maps total (4 MP, 1 zombie)
1200 points

Berlin Wall - Checkpoint Charlie; East vs West Germany battle
Discovery - Antarctic German research center from WWII
Kowloon - Kowloon City, China; rainy rooftop map based on single player campaign
Stadium - Northeastern United States hockey rink (parful)
Ascension - zombie map, info still classified

All maps will feature interactivity elements (i.e. rocket launch, opening/closing doors, etc) and will have more 'verticality' which will cater more to the snipers out there.

For full interview, go here and find the play button to listen to the podcast. Black Ops interview starts at 29:10 mark:

Ugh, Stadium and Berlin wall will be cool, I already know I wont like Kowloon. I just think that from MW2 and not wanting to play a single one of the new DLC maps there, that I will be the same here. They don't really freshen the game up for me, and it just means grinding and suffering through learning maps.

I'm gonna have to get some MS points ready for this release then.

The stadium sounds like it will be cool. (pun fully intended!)

Well aftre a good few hours on teh new maps yesterday. They are PArful.

Everyone of them are set up very well for domination, some good defending spots.

Got to say my fav so far is berlin wall, such an awesome map, played it on search wwith demo, and we cleared out the whole map by ourselves lol, fucking awesome.

ZOmbies is amazing aswell.

I'm liking the new maps as well. I think Kowloon is my favourite at the moment.

Stadium is a real disappointment though. I was hoping that the fighting was going to happen in the stadium and around the terrace and seating area with tiered attacking and it would have been good to be able to run around on the ice.

We may be OD'ing on the new maps though and should go back to playing with all the maps and not just the first strike maps.

The new zombie map is alright. There doesn't seem like there is a decent place to hold up though, unless there is 4 of you. Simy and Kneesliders are a nightmare to play zombies with, we get a crawler and once they get the guns they want, they kill the crawler. I had a famas with no ammo and a china lake, then bitched at me because the zombies were coming; not cool guys!

Yeah i play zombies proper to a certain level then when it gets harder i try my best to sabotage everyone, much more fun, guess i'm just used to playing it with Jimmers and demo lol.

I will behave next time tho.

I think this is the best zombie map, i like that there isnt a great place to camp, run and gun, use the landers etc.

i wasd playing properly in zombies. anyway i luv kowloon how you can just get around through so many shortcuts and climbing etc. just the kind of map i like. if you know that map well you can dominate easily with flanking routes. in search its awesome..until jimmers tomahawk gets you lol
