Call of Duty: Black Ops II 'Revolution' DLC Announced


Activision have announced the first massive DLC pack, Revolution for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

The DLC will be released first, exclusively on Xbox LIVE for the Xbox 360 on January 29th costing 1200 Microsoft Points (Free for players who own the Season Pass) and delivers an unprecedented level of content, and for the first time in Call of Duty DLC history, a new bonus multiplayer weapon.

Revolution will take players to unexpected new locales the world over. These new maps include the following:

  • Downhill – This map is set in the ski country of the French Alps, where players fight their way down the slopes and through a ski lodge, while avoiding the moving hazards of the mountain’s gondola system.
  • Hydro – Opponents must dodge the floodwaters as they contend for dominance of this hydroelectric dam facility in Pakistan, filled with treacherous spillways.
  • Mirage – This pits players in competition amidst the sand dunes of a dilapidated luxury resort in the sandstorm-devastated Gobi Desert, where a range of long-distance and close-quarters combat will mix up the action for all play styles.
  • Grind – This transports players to the historic birthplace of skateboarding, California’s Venice Beach, where they will battle it out through the ramps and half-pipes of this massive, epic skate park in a multiplayer environment comprised of unique curved architecture requiring players to adapt and learn new ways to take cover.

The DLC also delivers a new bonus multiplayer weapon which is the Peacekeeper. This powerful SMG comes with its own set of weapon challenges for extra XP. Finally, players will be transported to the Far East, where they will attempt to overcome a zombie infestation inside a series of collapsed skyscrapers towering over the remains of an obliterated Chinese city. In the new Zombies map titled Die Rise, players will wield powerful, upgradable Wonder Weaponry as well as combine new buildable devices to fight a relentless army of the undead throughout Escher-esque sceneries over a deep and perilous chasm. There is also a new game mode titled Turned in which players can compete against each other as a zombie.
