Treyarch are pulling out all the stops for their upcoming Black Ops DLC ‘Escalation’. The new expansion pack will feature vocals from none other than: the original and best child murderer Freddie Krueger himself (Robert Englund), slayer of vampires Sarah Michelle Gellar aka ‘Buffy’, The Walking Dead’s Michael Rooker and star of Machete, Danny Trejo.
Escalation also includes a zombie-killer map as a homage to the legendary George Romero.
From Black Ops director, Dave Anthony:
This is Treyarch’s tribute to the legendary George Romero, who truly defined the zombie genre and whose incredible work has been such an inspiration to our team. It was an absolute honour to work with such an amazing and talented cast whose passion and energy brought their characters instantly to life. Fans are going to love this.
Don’t forget to check out the new trailer for ‘Call of the Dead’, the zombie-laden map in which Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robert Englund tag-team up to kick some zombie ass.
Black Ops DLC Escalation features 4 new multi-player maps and will be available for Xbox 360 on May 3rd, while PC and PS3 users will have to wait a little longer; there is still no official release date for either.
