Treyarch have just released the first preview video of the First Strike DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops. The DLC will hit on 1 February 2011 for XBox 360 users and at a later date for those playing on PlayStation 3 and PC. offers some thoughts and details on the DLC.

The story is too old to be commented.

If this is 1200msp, no.
Med size maps and a destructible bridge? Shame that bad company 2 has 4 maps (5 now) that are destructible, much bigger and have new weapons and vehicles, for the same price.

It's around the same price-point as the MW2 DLC and at least they aren't recycling old maps. It also includes a new Zombie map called Ascension which isn't covered by the preview.

I do wish COD would have a destructible environment like BC though - makes the battle more imaginative and if there's a camper you can destroy the building with him in it!

EDIT: yeah I agree the price is too high these days. WaW prices were much fairer. I guess they can charge what they want because they know a large proportion of users will buy the DLC regardless of price.

lugia 40002834d ago

WAW had 3 maps and 1 zombie map for 800, adding one more map doesn´t justify 1200, but thats my opinion.

Too bad for lolvision TF2 gets free map updates from the community. Good decision not buying this game.

Highlife2834d ago

They should let you use all of your old maps from previous DlC that would be a big incentive to getting some maps knowing that you can use them latter on. Anyway will be selling this once killzone is out.

deafwing2834d ago

bfbc2 is dope; why am I here gonna go play now :p

Zydake2833d ago

Trolls are so mysterious why bring a discussion about BFBC2?

Yay let's listen to the sad pussy campers and add more verticality and sniping positions. Not buying this shit either way for 15 bucks.

DoomeDx2833d ago

@ Lugia 4000.
Bad company 2 has 5 maps?

Acatama Desert, Isla Innocent, Panama Canal, Arica Harbour, Heavy Metal, Coldwar, Harvest Day, Oasis, White Pass, Nelson Bay. Laguna Presa, Laguna alta.

Damn i love BC2. 1 map is about the size of all Black Ops maps combined.

Op242834d ago

atleast the maps are varied. This map pack might actually be worth it.

KingLizzle2834d ago

Agreed. I'm much more excited about the release of First Strike than I was for either of the MW2 DLC packs.

Op242834d ago

same. I really wanna see that zombie map though. Ascension just sounds awesome.

P_Bomb2833d ago

MW2 map packs were trash. 3 new maps and 2 OLD COD4 maps that you're forced to re-buy even if you just want the others was such a scam.

Looks like the Activision $14.99 price point is here to stay, but for fans at least the Black Ops pack has 4 new maps and one new zombie map. 5 all new maps in total.

But yeah, [email protected] had 4 new maps per $9.99 pack. Paying an extra $5.00 for just one more map is something people are gonna notice.

DrRichtofen2834d ago

I wonder whether the new zombie level is gonna have the WWII characters or the new JFK, Nixon characters.

Sillyace922834d ago

it's gonna have the WW2 one's.

Zydake2833d ago

I wanted to see gameplay on that too..

MarioWarfare2834d ago

Not very inspiring but you can be sure that this overpriced DLC will sell more than most other games out there.

-Alpha2833d ago (Edited 2833d ago )

You are paying $3/map which is standard for nearly all DLC map packs (Killzone, Halo, etc) BC2 being the only exception

Kon2834d ago (Edited 2834d ago )

Looks cool. But 1200Msp?? This is an outrage!
