The new Escalation map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops has been released on Xbox, but will be coming to PC soon enough. CVG have spotted some videos with plenty of in-game footage from each of the new multiplayer maps. The one above shows off the level set in an abandoned Russian zoo, complete with shattered monorail. Best. Day trip. Ever. You'll find the other three videos below.

A voice actor involved in the development of the next Call of Duty game has suggested that the sequel will be announced soon. Craig Fairbrass, who voiced Gaz in Modern Warfare and Ghost in Modern Warfare 2, has spoken on a radio show about his roles in the Call of Duty games, saying that he's recently been finishing up a few final "bits and pieces" for "something that's going to be out in May."
A new trailer and a bunch of screens have arrived for Call of Duty: Black Ops, showing off the five new maps that will make up the Escalation map pack. Most of the focus is on the four new multiplayer maps. Details of the spooky zombie mode map will be revealed later. You'll find all of the new screens below.
The First Strike map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops adds four new multiplayer maps, and a new zombie mode arena. The new maps include one set in an ice rink, another on the rooftops of Kowloon, and the zombie map adds new enemies, like gibbering gaggles of zombie Russian cosmonaut monkeys.
