“Here’s a quick rundown of the Xbox 360 Live “Call of Duty: Black Ops” “Escalation Map Pack” coming soon (5 maps):

Zoo map
Thank goodness it still is a multi-player map. This one is played in a Russian zoo that is abandoned. Hint: It never is. Watch out!

Hotel map
This bad boy will be in Havana, Cuba, where the real ballers hang. Bring your wallet; it’s inside a luxury casino.

Convoy map
Get ready to show your skills in close quarters. It’s down and dirty. The action goes down at the scene of an ambushed US vehicle convoy.

Stockpile map
Here’s where the fun begins. This map features a “secret” WMD installment concealed in a deserted Russian farm town. Moo!

Word is there will be another zombie map. Details of that may be forthcoming. ”
