The new zombies map allows fans to experience new playable characters.

A new Call of Duty Black Ops DLC has been announced (via Kotaku Australia) and it is slated for a May 3rd, 2011 release date.
There are four new multiplayer maps included in this pack: Hotel, Stockpile, Zoo, and Convoy. There will also be a new zombie map called Call of the Dead.
Escalation would be the second content pack released by Treyarch for Black Ops. First Strike was the first DLC released back in February for the Xbox and PS3. Expect the price of this DLC to be the same $14.99 as Black Ops: First Strike. (more…)
Call of Duty Black Ops has a new Downloadable Content Pack available for the PC called, First Strike. The First Strike Content Pack is new for the PC, but Xbox gamers have been enjoying it since the beginning of February and PS3 fans, shortly after. Why it took Treyarch over a month to release the Black Ops DLC for the PC is anyone’s guess, but it’s pretty obvious their priority is not with the PC.
Treyarch finally releases a Call of Duty Black Ops demo nearly four months after the full version was released in November 2010. Black Ops set all kinds of sales records the day it was released and went on to sell millions of copies. Sales from this Call of Duty title have surpassed $1 billion. Divide that number by the $60 price tag for the standard edition and that equates to over 16 million copies of the game being sold. And this was all by Christmas 2010, a month and a half after the game has been out. (more…)
On June 22nd, 2010, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon had Video Game Week and they debuted a Call of Duty Black Ops demo. What’s great about this video, at the time of its airing on national TV in June, it was 5 months away from Call of Duty Black Ops scheduled release date. Very enticing and such a tease to watch an awesome demo of a game that was still months away before you could play it.
In this video you can see Jimmy Fallon taking the controls of an Hind helicopter as he fires missiles at the Vietcong along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The helicopter flying looks like it’s on rails as opposed to being able to control the flying.
Some people confuse a beta and a demo and at times think they are both the same. It’s understandable to think that way, because nowadays many times gamers will see a playable beta, but will never see a demo for the game. It’s a great way to try the game before you decide to buy it.
