Call of Duty: Black Ops mod tools due in May

Back in August 2010, Call of Duty: Black Ops developer Treyarch revealed that it planned to release PC mod tools for the Cold War-era FPS some time after launch. Turns out, that'll end up being around six months after launch--better late than never.

"We are shooting for mod tools release in May," Cod Blops PC team project lead Cesar 'PCDev' Stastny announced on Twitter (via Kotaku).

It's still not entirely clear what features the mod tools will offer, though game source code to tinker with and a level editor seem likely. A level editor would certainly be welcomed as a way to get new maps without coughing up $15 for downloadable content packs, the second of which was announced earlier this week.
