Call of Duty‘s latest map pack, Escalation is now available on Xbox LIVE, priced at 1200 Microsoft points. Escalation features four brand new multiplayer maps in addition to a new mode called ‘Call of the Dead’, a “Zombie experience that assembles a zombie-carnage dream team to fight against a new and undefeatable zombie horde menace, all set in the dark, ice-covered isles of Siberia.”
Bizarrely, and somewhat awesomely, Escalation’s new Zombie mode actually features George Romero, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Danny Trejo.
“We took the community’s feedback to heart, and the result is five of the most creative and varied maps we have ever made,” said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. “’Call of the Dead’ is an homage to the great horror films that have inspired the team and represents a deep commitment to our Zombie fans.”
Whatever you may think about Call of Duty: Black Ops, and map packs in general, Treyarch really has attempted to raise the bar with Escalation, providing more content that we usually see from map packs. We’re actually quite keen to check it out.
