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.
