Treyarch has released Call of Duty: Black Ops' Annihilation DLC on the PS3 and PC. Gamers can download the map pack for $14.99.
The Annihilation pack adds five multiplayer maps to the game. Four are for standard competitive modes while the fifth is for zombie co-op:
"Hangar 18," buried deep within the military black site Area 51, where gamers will battle through experimental weapons labs, the SR-71 test hangar and a mysterious autopsy room.
"Drive-In," where players engage in close-quarters combat through a 1960s drive-in theater, complete with snack shack and a classic arcade.
"Silo," a massive multilevel battleground tucked within a super-secret Soviet era nuclear missile site.
"Hazard," perched on the verdant Cuban cliffside, where gamers traverse a coastal golf course fit for a dictator. This is the only set of links where the hazards shoot back.
"Shangri-La," the all-new Zombies experience, which transports players to a mythical paradise overrun with the undead. Face off against new species of zombies and navigate a treacherous labyrinth of underground caverns, all set within a lost jungle shrine.
As usual, Treyarch will be holding a Double XP Weekend to celebrate the release of the DLC. Starting Friday at 10 AM PDT, all experience gains in multiplayer will be doubled. This even applies to the Xbox 360 version, which received the new maps a month ago.
Annihilation is the third DLC pack released for Black Ops. The previous two, First Strike and Escalation, each added five maps to the game's multiplayer. Both packs had the same split in content: four normal maps, one for zombie co-op.
