Activision’s just fully confirmed that the third map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops, Annihilation, will launch on June 28 first on Xbox Live.

The content will come with four new competitive maps – Hangar 18, Drive-In, Silo and Hazard. The fifth new map for zombie mode is known as Shangri-La.

There’ll also be a double XP weekend to celebrate the pack’s release, beginning on July 1.

The content was first mentioned yesterday, with further confirmation coming from a VG247 retail source this morning.

“With Annihilation, Black Ops fans will get four exciting and unique multiplayer settings with Hangar 18, Drive-In, Silo and Hazard,” said Treyarch boss 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.”

Black Ops has seen two DLC packs other than Annihilation so far: First Strike in February and Escalation in April.
