Annihilation DLC Coming To Call Of Duty: Black Ops

The best selling game ever on the XBOX 360 is getting ready to add more content to its already vast multiplayer offering. Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation will be released via the XBOX Live Marketplace on June 28th. This will be the third map pack for the popular shooter from Treyarch.

“With Annihilation, Black Ops fans will get four exciting and unique multiplayer settings with Hangar 18, Drive-In, Silo and Hazard,” said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. “Players will also enjoy an all-new Zombies experience, Shangri-La, an exotic and mysterious map filled with deadly traps, dark secrets and innovative gameplay that will challenge even the most daring Zombie hunters.”

Since its launch in November, Call of Duty: Black Ops has continued to draw in millions of gamers online, from all over the globe. They’ve logged billions of hours into the game and they’re surely about to add more when this pack launches. It’s going to be a timed exclusive for the XBOX 360 – the platform the game has done the best on. Its downloadable content has already become the highest selling add-on content in XBOX Live history.

Additionally, to celebrate the upcoming release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation, Treyarch will host a Double XP weekend beginning Friday, July 1st.

The new DLC is really not much of a surprise considering a leaked Gamestop flyer prematurely outed the map pack yesterday but it’s still nice to see official confirmation.
