The third downloadable add-on for Call of Duty: Black Ops, “Annihilation”, hits next week (for Xbox 360, that is), bringing with it four new maps and one new zombie-slaughtering “experience”. Want to see? Watch that video.

You’ll get a peek at those maps – Hangar 18, set in a highly classified military base of Area 51; Drive-In, a colourful, ’60s era drive-in theater; Silo, a Soviet nuclear missile site; and Hazard, a Cuban golf course – plus Shangri-La, an exotic jungle map teeming with zombies and zombie monkeys.

“Annihilation” for Black Ops hits Xbox Live on June 28. Expect it to hit the PC and PlayStation 3 later, after Microsoft’s window of exclusivity closes.


    • Same. It’s the best horde game since Pacman, for my money… which I keep having to part with because of the greedy approach to selling the DLC as packages. It’s not like COD hasn’t been hugely profitable. It still goes unanswered as to why *all* zombie maps aren’t DLC for black ops by now?? This latest one is the ninth in the series. Also, reissuing BlackOps with First Strike but without the old maps seems beyond negligent and more like intentional prohibition!
