June 17, 2011 Written by Kishen Patel

Only a week after the release of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Escalation map pack on the PlayStation Store, Activision has announced the next piece of downloadable content for the blockbuster first-person shooter. While PS3 owners will have to wait at least a month longer than the competing platforms, the information is still pertinent to the PSN community of online gamers.

The third DLC pack, Annihilation, follows up on the success of the First Strike and Escalation expansions with four new maps for competitive multiplayer and another new zombie map pack. According to the official announcement by Treyarch and Activision:

With Annihilation, Black Ops fans will get four exciting and unique multiplayer settings with Hangar 18, Drive-In, Silo and Hazard,” said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. “Players will also enjoy an all-new Zombies experience, Shangri-La, an exotic and mysterious map filled with deadly traps, dark secrets and innovative gameplay that will challenge even the most daring Zombie hunters.

Guessing from the time frames between the Xbox LIVE and PSN releases of each Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC releases, our assumption is that there will be a month’s delay until the Annihilation DLC hits the PlayStation Store.
