Call of the Dead will be Arriving to Black Ops via the Escalation DLC

The upcoming COD: Black Ops DLC, “Escalation” map pack, will contain the previously rumored Call of the Dead level/s.

This co-op map was inspired by Night of the Living Dead creator George A. Romero, who also makes a cameo appearance in the game. You will be able to “fight for their lives amidst an army of bloodthirsty Soviet zombies”, as you play as the “zombie-killing dream-team” of, Danny Trejo (Machete), Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), and Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead). The actors also voiced themselves for the game.

This trailer has actually got me excited to play a COD zombie level again. It looks really good.

No release date has been revealed for the PSN, but it will be sometime after the timed exclusive May 3rd release on Xbox Live.
