On February 1, Call of Duty: Black Ops will welcome its first downloadable content: the "First Strike" map pack. As a short teaser, developer Treyarch has released a new video featuring a glimpse at the upcoming content.

Arriving first on the Xbox 360, the pack adds four standard multiplayer maps and one Zombie-mode specific setting. First Strike will be available for 1200MS Points ($15).

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 map packs released under the same timed-exclusive arrangement for Xbox 360 users, with the PC and PS3 seeing the content launch about one month later. Activision has yet to reveal a date for the content on other platforms.

Codblops--as it is affectionately referred to as around these parts--launched on the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, Nintendo DS in November 2010.

Based on data from the NPD Group, everyone and their mother bought the game, making it the best-selling title of 2010.

    /sigh - I really like this game and I really support Treyarch in how they've supported the game, but I just can't do $15. I know its the new $10... ugh. I didn't cave to ModWarfare2 because of the hacking and it went to shit so fast. Fuck you 12yr olds who use your parents' credit card to becoming the buying power to allow this shit.

      But little Timmy needs to spend $3 per map. I mean it's not like BF:BC2 just came out with a $15 DLC that gave you new guns, vehicles, and 5 maps.

      I'm torn...15 bucks isn't much (I've spent 50 bucks on an imported controller...and you don't want to know how much I've payed for rare goa trance CDs that only had 2000 prints made to get a track I really wanted)...but it does set a precedent.

      I'm personally going to wait and see...if the quality of the maps are really good then its fine (one Q1DM4 or Q1DM3 is worth everything every made for Counterstrike, CoD4, or BC2 combined...well that might be a slight exaggeration...but generally a good map can be played on for years and years and years (people still 1v1 on Q1DM2))...but they'd have to be good and add more variety to the gameplay for me to jump.

        I should note that I'll wait regardless since I play it on the pc...so I have to play wait and see anyway.

        I'd like to see them do some larger scale maps to make the sniper people happy. I don't enjoy sniping at all...but for people into that it'd be nice to throw them a bone.

        Because new CoD versions come out every year, these DLC maps won't be played much in a year when everyone buys the next game. Because of the frequent releases, I see the DLC maps as a waste of money. :(
