yesterday's teaser trailer, Treyarch has now spilled the beans on the next downloadable content expansion for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Titled Apocalypse, the game's fourth and final DLC pack will launch on August 27th 2013 for 1200 MS points on the Xbox 360 (a timed exclusive ahead of PC and PS3 as always), and in addition to the expected "Origins" co-op zombies scenario, will also feature four new multiplayer maps:
“Apocalypse is Treyarch’s grand finale to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2,” said Treyarch studio head, Mark Lamia. “It is the perfect culmination of our efforts, and fan feedback, with two all-new multiplayer maps for players to experience for the first time, and two fully reimagined fan-favorite multiplayer maps from past games – and Origins, our most epic Zombies experience to date.PC and PlayStation 3 release dates have not yet been revealed, but previous Call of Duty DLC releases have typically followed one month after their Xbox 360 launch.

So we can surmise that the DLC is going to be titled Origins, and is likely to be solely focused on the game's co-operative Zombies mode. The tagline is "Every story has a beginning...and an end.", the four figures that appear in the video resemble zombies characters seen in both World at War and the original Black Ops, and there's a giant robot. Chew on all of that, and watch the clip below.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 to Introduce Micro-transactions, ANZ Players Qualify for Call of Duty Championships

official website OneofSwords that the update brings several micro-transactions that "contains either personal customizations or nice little luxuries that I’ve seen players request; none of them affect gameplay."
According to Amrich the micro-transactions will simply be things like the Personalization Packs, which will offer a unique weapon camo, three targeting reticles (one each for the Reflex, EO Tech, and ACOG sights), and a custom player Calling Card. A notable example is the Bacon Personalization Pack, which will allow players to wrap their gun up in bacon for times when hunger strikes on the battlefield. Each pack will retail for 160MS Points.
Additionally, the previous pre-order only map Nuketown 2025 will now be available for all players for free and the Nuketown Zombies level will become a single-purchase option for 400 MS Points.
Activision and Treyarch haven't stopped there, with an additional 10 Create-a-Class slots also available for purchase, giving players more customisation on the battlefield then they will probably know what to do with. The pack retails for 160 MS Points and will also include an expansion on media storage which includes videos, screenshots and emblems. More details will be made tomorrow on the official Call of Duty website so stay tuned.
