Last year, Activision and Treyarch announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops II would adopt a “season pass” model for its downloadable map packs. Today, the first DLC pack for the game was announced, and it includes more content than previous CoD DLCs.
According to the official Black Ops II blog, the map pack’s title is Revolution, and it features four new multiplayer maps: Mirage (A Gobi Desert-based luxury resort), Grind (A skate park in Venice, California), Hydro (A Pakistinian dam), and Downhill (A ski resort located in the Alps). In addition, the map pack marks the first time a multiplayer weapon has been added to a Call of Duty game by DLC, with the Peacekeeper submachine gun included.
For the Zombies side of Black Ops II, Revolution adds not only a new map, but a new game mode as well. The new map is known as Die Rise, and takes place in the east, with players traversing tall, dilapidated skyscrapers. The map features new items for players to build, and new Wonder Weapons to fight with. In addition to the map, Revolution includes a new Zombies game mode known as Turned, in which multiple players team up as zombies in order to take down the sole human player. The zombie that defeats the human respawns as one, and the person with the most points at the end of the game wins.
With more content on offer than any single previous Call of Duty DLC, Revolution seems to be a great deal for those wanting more out of Black Ops II. Call of Duty: Black Ops II – Revolution releases January 29 on the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1200 Microsoft Points, with a release on other platforms planned for a later date. The map pack will be available at no extra cost to Season Pass owners.
