June 28 sees the arrival of a new 5-map combo on Xbox 360, as Call of Duty: Black Ops serves up a new trailer for its Annihilation pack.

Each map is designed to emphasize a different aspect of multiplayer gameplay in a pack that debuts on Xbox 360 before making its way over to PlayStation 3 and PC.

Drive-in's tight environment favors close-quarters combat, Hazard is a golf course turned sniping ground, Silo takes players to a Russian base with convoluted pathways, while Hangar 18 mixes long and short range engagement with Area 51 mythos.

Just as Hazard swaps drab landscapes for bright color, Shangri-La's zombie-infested map opts for vibrant, high-altitude shrines laden with hidden traps and unfriendly wildlife.

Come June 28, there will be 20 weeks remaining until Black Ops' successor arrives on consoles and PC in the form of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

Battlefield 3 launches two weeks earlier on October 25 (October 28 outside of North America), while historical shooter Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is on PC from August 30.

Annihilation's multiplayer trailer can be seen on the Call of Duty channel at youtu.be/nbcc4cXONso.
