CoD: Black Ops DLC: mind your language!

The first DLC release for Call of Duty: Black Ops has just arrived on the Xbox Live Marketplace, and Microsoft have an odd warning for gamers.

They would like you to please make sure that when you pick up your copy of First Strike, that you’re getting the map pack in the appropriate language. Yes, this is not a test.

Just humour me and check, okay?

Simply put – if you own Call of Duty: Black Ops in English, you must download the map pack in English as well (this will all be clearly spelled out on the Marketplace descriptions, by the way).

For most people, this won’t be a drama. But, if you live in Canada or any other country where multiple languages are a way of life, it could be.

It’s also an issue if you’ve picked up a French copy of Black Ops while travelling and are now playing it at home in the US – the American Marketplace simply does not stock the French version of the map pack.

If you do download the pack in a language other than the one supported by your copy of the game, it will not work, and you’ll get an error message instead of a fragging session.

So, while it might sound like a silly thing to do, just double-check that you know which language your game is in, and ensure that you grab the appropriate map pack.
