It seems that no matter how you look at it Call of Duty has changed the gaming world forever. And there is now another DLC for Call of Duty Blake Ops called Escalation which includes 5 new maps called Zoo, Hotel, Stockpile, Convoy and Call of the Undead. All of the maps are unique to fit the players needs like providing good sniping points or good bombing places, but the best of all is the new maps for me is Call of the undead.
My favorite thing to be added to the Call of Duty franchise is ZOMBIES! and this map is no exception. Featuring one legendary writer and four cult horror actors including Michael Rooker, Robert England, Sarah Michelle Geller, and Danny Trejo. The map pack comes to Xbox 360 May, 3 2011 and to ps3 next month. I love COD and I will definitely be shooting Zombies on Call of the Dead. So check it out.
