First Black Ops DLC confirmed for Feb 1

Initially Xbox-only map pack to cost $15

Activision has revealed that the first downloadable content for the best-selling game of 2010, Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC will arrive on February 1.

The multiplayer pack First Strike contains four maps for the online mode, and will sell for $14.99 (1200 MS points).

While Call of Duty DLC's traditional pricing has elicited grumbling from a number of consumers, it has proved little impediment to success - previous add-ons raised a total of 20 million in sales and $300 million in revenue for Activision.

In something of a coup for Microsoft, First Strike will initially be exclusive to the Xbox version of Black Ops.
