New Black Ops 2 DLC “Vengeance” revealed

While Activision has been busy preparing for the launch of Call of Duty Ghosts, Treyarch has kept themselves busy keeping Black Ops 2 players engaged to it’s game via downloadable content. So far, there has been two Map Packs released thus far. The newest Map Pack is called Vengeance, and like the previous Map Packs – it will feature 4 multiplayer maps, and one content.

Ladies and gentlemen, Black Ops 2′s Vengeance…

The downloadable content are..

Cove: Surrounded by water on all sides, Cove takes place on a rocky island on the Indian ocean. There are a lot of flanking opportunities here.

Detour: Catering to all ranges of play styles, it takes place on a large bridge with multiple levels. There are a lot of head-to-head gameplay on the map.

Rush: As the name suggests, the map is all about fast-paced multiplayer action. It will take place on a paintball course with a multiple environments that has different shapes of cover.

Uplink: An old Black Ops map that is being re-imagined for Black Ops 2. Uplink is based on BO’s Summit, and it takes you into a satellite control facility where there’ll be many different ways to play the map.

The special content is for zombies…

Buried: It’s a breand new adventure for BO2 Zombie fans. You’ll trek into old western style in a underground cave. The AI seems to be improved for Zombies – characters will share information as you progress the map or story. The mode will also feature an upgrade to the Ray Gun, called the Ray Gun Mark II.

Mob of the Dead trailer released

With Black Ops 2 “Uprising” making it’s way to Xbox Live on April 16th, there has been a lot of talk, and hype that is surrounding the new Zombies mode that’s called “Mob of the Dead” which is the sequel to the original episodic “Call of the Dead” content. Mob of the Dead is the story of four strangers stuck in Alcatraz. Those strangers are Billy Handsome, Al “The Weasel” Arlington, Salvatore “Sal” DeLuca, and Michael “Finn” O’Leary. Yes, you’ve guessed it: Prohibition-era mobsters. Their mission: Escape from Alcatraz, and find the plane that gets them out of there.

Mob of the Dead has a cast of some well-known actors and they are Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, Michael Madsen, and Ray Liotta. Just like “Call of the Dead” before it, Activision is going all out with this Map Pack. It’s easy to see why. Enjoy the new trailer!

Microsoft interviewed the folks at Treyarch to get a “behind-the-scenes” look at Mob of the Dead, to get a better idea of what the episode is about.

Black Ops 2 “Uprising” is confirmed

There has been a lot of leaks as of late surrounding the new DLC Map Pack. There was nothing concrete until now, Treyarch let it out. Putting rumors to rest, Uprising is indeed a Map Pack that will include 5 maps, and they are: Magma, Encore, Vertigo, Studio, and of course, the new Zombies mode, Mob of the Dead. Enjoy the new Black Ops 2 trailer…

Uprising will be released on April 16th to Xbox Live first, as per the Microsoft/Activision agreement. It’ll be released to PC, and PS3 owners at a later time. Not only that, there will be a Double XP across all platforms from April 12 at 10am PST and going through ’til April 15 at 10am PST to celebrate the release of Uprising.

Black Ops 2 “Uprising” incoming?

Ever since Black Ops II’s “Revolution” DLC was released, there has been rumblings already about the next DLC. [CODForums post] But shortly thereafter, MP1st and other media outlets debunked it via investigative work. [Source] However, a few weeks ago, clues to the next DLC popped up. [Source] It’s more credible than the “Orientation” leak. And the next leak, which is via a promotional “card” (or poster, whichever you prefer) came up, and everyone believes it because more and more media outlets are reporting it.

Ladies and gentlemen, Black Ops 2 “Uprising”!

B02 Uprising

Black Ops II “Uprising” promotional card

A lot of this seems credible because the official Call of Duty site seems to be hiding hints of the map pack. Not only that, more, and more retailers are listing the “Uprising” Map Pack, and on top of that, Microsoft updated the Xbox listing to include the map pack in preparation for the April 16th launch.

Finally, Vertigo is supposed to be a Modern Warfare 2 map. [Source] Mob of the Dead is possibly the sequel to the original Black Ops’ “Call of the Dead” mode. [Source]

Black Ops 2 “Revolution” Map Pack Revealed

Activision has been very busy with Call of Duty: Black Ops II over the last 2 months. On November 13th, 2012, Black Ops 2 was released world-wide and was met with mixed reactions from critics, fans, and casual players alike. Sometime during Christmas, GameStop, and other retailers got promotional posters for Black Ops II. It’s none other than DLC posters, which was rumored to be “Revolution.” [CODForums post] But as you know, rumors are rumors until it’s official straight from Activision or it’s studios. Treyarch promised there would be DLC news shortly after the new year. Alas, as promised, Activision and Co. delivered…

While I was staying at a family gathering, Activision and Co. released a new video showing off the new “Revolution” maps coming to Xbox Live first.

The new Black Ops II Map Pack will arrive to Xbox Live on January 29th, and will contain:

Black Ops II Multiplayer:

Mirage: Enjoy the scenery while it lasts, because you’ll do battle in a luxury resort in China devastated by a passing sandstorm.

Downhill: As the battle rages on, you’ll go downhill in a snow-covered ski resort in the French Alps.

Grind: Look out, because you’ll “grind it” in a skate park in Venice, California. It looks like a really wide map, so far.

Hydro: You will be battling it out on a large, interactive dam set in Pakistan. In the video, it shows water being lavished upon you or your enemies.

Black Ops II Zombies:

Die Rise: Your mission is to fight for survival, because a skyscraper is crumbling, and there will be hordes of zombies coming at you from all directions. Be prepared, you have been forewarned!

Turned: For the first time, you will be able to turn into a zombie. How this works is remain to be seen.

Black Ops II Weapon:

Peacekeeper: For the first time in Call of Duty history, Treyarch is packaging new weapons with DLC packs. Peacekeeper is classed as a SMG (sub-machine gun), but is actually a mix between a deadly SMG, and an assault rifle. There will be challenges to unlock as you rack up those XP’s.

As usual, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC owners will have to wait to get their hands on the new Revolution Map Pack. More info as it develops.
