124w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has confirmed that Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation PS3 DLC is now live on PSN and shared some domination tips for fans below.
To quote: Annihilation - the third pack of DLC maps for Call of Duty: Black Ops - comes to the PlayStation 3.
The DLC offers four new multiplayer arenas and a new jungle-based Zombies survival experience in Shangri-Li.
In celebration of the big release, developer Treyarch has deemed that the double XP will flow all weekend long. I'll be hosting a gameplay session this Friday night to soak some of that up myself, and my favorite game type is Domination.
Truth be told, I'm not that good a shot, so objective-based modes like this one let me help the team and keep leveing up even if I'm nowhere near the top of the K/D ratios.
In that spirit, I wanted to offer some tips for the four new maps. I don't know if we'll meet up on the same team or on opposite sides of a red dot sight, but I'm willing to take that risk in the name of having fun...

126w ago - Activision's Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that the Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation maps will be hitting PS3 on July 28, 2011.
To quote: First Strike was fun. Escalation rocked. But Call of Duty: Black Ops fans want more - they crave new battlegrounds and new experiences.
Black Ops developer Treyarch knows this, so they've been busy creating another fresh batch of DLC maps: Annihilation. The newest add-on content will be ready for download from the PlayStation Store starting Thursday, July 28th.
Annihilation features four new standard multiplayer arenas - Silo, Hangar 18, Drive-In and Hazard - and the deadly jungle Zombies experience, Shangri-La. "The goals we set were about quality and variety," says Treyarch's Online Director, Dan Bunting. "We wanted to make everything feel unique and distinct."
Annihilation delivers on those goals with five all-new environments:
Drive-In: This one-time American movie paradise once showed war movies; now it's the location for one. The holes in the screen have been filled with snipers. The popcorn is stale, but they're still serving up hot lead in the concession stand.
