Games developer Treyarch have released the first official trailer and gameplay videos for Escalation, the second map pack in yet a further continuation of downloadable content for their blockbusting title Call Of Duty: Black Ops.
As well as the standard four new maps it’s the additional zombie content which looks a little special, this time around. Presented in a Grindhouse style, the trailer above showcases gameplay and elements of the Call Of The Dead as four protagonists, Danny Trejo (Machete), Sarah Michelle Gellar, (Buffy), Robert Englund, (Freddy Kruger), and Michael Rooker, (Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer), go head to head with the zombie horde aboard an ice bound ship in a frozen wasteland.
Now word yet on whether you’ll be able to play as each of these characters in a Left 4 Dead style co-op match, but once again Activision are tempting even more money from our wallets with this line-up.
N.B: Why didn’t they give Bruce Campbell a gig in this game?
It’s that time again when gaming companies start to turn the vice and squeeze as much money out of your wallet as possible. The first downloadable map pack for last year’s highly successful first person shooter Call Of Duty: Black Ops is gearing up for release on February 1st. It will probably mark the first of three pieces of downloadable content for the game and just like before they’ve included some tempting new qualities which they hope will hook you into buying.
'Oh that's just f@cking crate!'
When we’re not navigating through the murky waters of internet entertainment, we here at the HMS Friday like to relax with a little video game time. And what better game to relieve some stress than a multiplayer session on Call Of Duty: Black Ops. Except it’s not very relaxing, if it’s not the squeaky voiced American kids killing us repeatedly then it’s…wooden boxes from the sky? Easily the best “WTF?” kill we’ve seen yet.
Further proof that no matter how good you are something will always come along and make you feel like a right prick.
