Activision has detailed the first DLC pack for Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Revolution. Scheduled to launch initially on Live for the 360 on January 29, Revolution will include five new maps, a new mode, and a new weapon. The maps, detailed below, include Downhill, Hydro, Mirage, and Grind for standard multiplayer, as well as Die Rise for Zombies. Another undead addition is Turned mode, which will put players in the tattered shoes of a shambling corpse. Lastly, the pack will add a bonus multiplayer weapon to the arsenal, the Peacekeeper SMG.
Revolution will be available for the PC and PS3 in the near future, but a date wasn’t specified.
Revolution takes players to unexpected new locales the world over. “Downhill” 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. Opponents must dodge the floodwaters in “Hydro” as they contend for dominance of this hydroelectric dam facility in Pakistan, filled with treacherous spillways. “Mirage” 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. Finally, “Grind” 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. Each map in Revolution delivers a uniquely exhilarating new landscape for tactics and battle.
Additionally, Revolution transports players 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 this new and original Zombies map, “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.
