Call of Duty: Black Ops fans are in for a treat this February 1st as its first downloadable content (DLC) will be available for the Xbox 360 for $15.

It’s been almost a while since Black Ops has been out for play, and having the first DLC around the first quarter of 2011 is certainly something to look out for.

Players using other consoles might need to wait a little while longer before the content is available on their turf thanks to a deal made between Microsoft and Activision. Pffft, typical Microsoft.

Xbox 360 players will have a multiplayer map pack that has five additional levels which includes four regular levels and one zombie mode. Two of the four maps are relatively new content as they dwell on Cold War content: the Berlin Wall and an Ice Hockey Stadium. While the other two will be based on maps from the single player mode, namely the Arctic Circle and Hong Kong.

And yeah, the DLC has Oscar Mike as well.
