It's official. Call of Duty: Black Ops is indeed getting a third DLC map pack entitled 'Annihilation' and it will bundle four new multiplayer maps and a fresh, meaty zombies map to tackle. Activision has just formally announced the add-on,revealing that the new zombies map is called 'Shangri-La' and will feature traps and other secrets in an exotic setting.

“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.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation Map Pack will launch on June 28th for 1200 Microsoft Points and to celebrate, Treyarch will be hosting a double XP weekend to coincide with the third DLC's release. The double XP weekend will commence on Friday, July 1st and presumably finish on the Sunday.

Check out six new screens from the Black Ops Annihilation Map Pack in the gallery, and take a look at the trailer for the DLC below, which offers some interesting insights into the upcoming map pack.

The zombie maps looks cool but crazy to survive in. I am afraid of what achievements will come with it.

Well, this is probably the last thing I'll buy from Treyarch; unless they make something other than COD. :)

I think Call of the Dead plays better than Shangri La if what he says is true, cause it's not fun to get overrun in CQC.

I know jokes get flung and it's all in good fun really but I just can't get into the map packs for COD and I learned this on the first set. I despised Chinatown and hated Hangar I think it was. The really small one in the garage was great for private games otherwise, it was NOTHING but a noobtube/grenade fest. And the last one which was huge was great for "Jason" games. That aside, I'm sorry, it just doesn't match the price point that other games have. Reach is probably my favorite for map packs b/c Maps are incorporated for certain playlists so you're getting variety in more than one area. It's just preference on being worht the price. If you're someone who plays online at least every day or most of the week, then it's worth it for you. That's what it really breaks down to - the time you put in for the price.

@4 & 9

George offered a change in the CotD map and he wasn't overpowered, he just had alot of life. It's not like he could stun you for 3-5 seconds and completely screw you over or down you in one hit. If you knew what you were doing he was easy to kill anyway and he actually made it easier in that you could get all 7 perks from him.

I just hope this is not another "Five" level, that level was the worst out of all the maps, due to having no room to move about in and getting severally screwed over.

Treyarch knows adding achievements will make acheivement hunters buy the DLC. Probably due to the first WAW map pack being the lowest selling.

Let me get this right 4 multiplayer maps, 1 new, 1 nuketown 2.0, 1 mw2 rehash and 1 W@W remake. and a new zombie map all for the great price of un-announced. so 1200. id rather get San Andreas or Halo 1 for that.

Yes you can tell it was an enemy rocket because he FLINCHED. HAHAHAHA!
"Hey, have a rocket in your face." "Lolwut, gonna have to do better than that to get a kill on Black Ops!"

WTF, this game is so broken. What a joke. Worst hit detection in the series by FAR.

I just hope they don't block it off like with the "stadium" map. I'm still mad that I don't get to find on an ice rink. That would have been amazing.

Why can't Treyarch release the DLC's for the Caribbean? I live there and it's just annoying that I can't play the new maps, however there was no problem with Modern Warfare 2 DLCs. I'm just hating Treyarch for that. If you're doing something, let everyone know it and play it.

*Pilot of missle sees enemy*

*Missle hits enemy*

*Enemy flinches*

What the hell? Seriously, fix your damn game before you go out looking for more money. I'm surprised they haven't added a clown sign in one of the maps so Bowling can make another video regarding stealth clowns.

@51 most players have tht problem bcuz their connection to the server is really weak. I knw this bcuz ive been the 1 firing the missle and the 1 receiving it. and they patch the game every couple of weeks or so. at least when theres a new DLC the last 2 times there was an update that came with it. not sure wat it fixed but had 2 b more than just uploading the maps

Why on earth did they feel the need to touch up these screen shots? everyone knows what black ops looks like and we all know its not as good graphically as these shots. waste of time.
A good price for a map pack is the homefront one. 240 points for 2 maps so for 1200 points you would get like 9 maps!

Zombies has lost it's way from COD5,
kino was great just as good as the last ones
but after that they are that they are all about a story or some sort of
Easter egg, I like having the music ones.
But that is just my opinion others may be different to mine
