According to the Facebook status
and the Call of Duty website
, the next map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, Escalation, will be released first on Xbox Live on May 3, 2011. This comes rather quickly behind the recent release of the PC version of the map pack one, First Strike (http://www.callofduty.com/intel/453).
Escalation contains 5 maps, with 1 adding onto Zombie mode for singleplayer/multiplayer. The 5 new maps are Zoo, Hotel, Convoy, Stockpile and Call of the Deed for Zombies.
Here is a little summary from the website
"In Multiplayer, battle it out in "Hotel", on the roof of a Cuban luxury hotel and casino against the vivid backdrop of old Havana; "Convoy" delivers intense, close-quarters combat at the scene of an ambushed US military convoy; "Zoo" takes you on a wild ride in an abandoned Soviet Russian Zoo, with danger at every turn; "Stockpile" pits players in a remote Russian farm town housing secret WMD facilities.
For Zombies fans, "Escalation" features a unique Zombies experience. We can't wait to take the wraps off of our new Zombies map, Call of the Dead, a very special creation for all Zombies fans."
Additionally, to celebrate the upcoming release, there will be a Black Ops Double XP weekend beginning Friday, May 6th. promoted forum post

also, It seems Treyarch are just following IW's dlc release model, albeit with more maps, therefore making it way better value for $$ than MW2's dlc.
Where was the whinging then?
I don't like the way CoD has gone but some ppl on this forum are just jumping on the f*****g bandwagon, I question whether some of you itt ever even tried Black Ops.

I'm aware of that as I'm on of these people, but that's the biggest get off my lawn comment ever Eorl.
Times are changing, we all know DLC is here and it's staying and I really don't see how recent games are lacking in quality compared to older titles, your nostalgia glasses are fogging up.

Well, I don't mind DLC, when it actually adds more then 5 maps which take less then a few weeks with a few 3D modellers. What I miss is the day of expansions. Where content was huge, and even patches added features.
