Elaborating on 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.

Origins takes players to a “Dieselpunk-stylized World War I-era France” where they will encounter the return of the four original heroes from the very first Zombies map, Tank, Nikolai, Takeo, and Rictofen, as well as hordes of zombies that have overrun trenches and fields, as well as the ruins of a mysterious and ancient location.

Unleashed after the Germans unearthed the mysterious Element 115, this next chapter in the Zombies legacy will explore the saga’s origins as players reunite with an unlikely band of soldiers that come together to defeat the greatest evil the world has ever seen, using a period-specific arsenal that includes Wonder Weapons that harness supernatural powers, a diesel-drone and Mark IV tank, as well a new perk machine and power-ups – and that’s just the start.

Players will need all the help they can get to succeed in defeating the undead, as well as evading an unprecedented 1,000-foot tall robot abomination.”
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.

Treyarch has dropped a new teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 titled "Origins" that appears to be offering a taste of the game's next downloadable content expansion, and it looks like it will be more Zombies action, with a giant robot.

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.

Treyarch and Activision have today unveiled the newest DLC pack to grace the war-torn Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 lands, this time offering four new multiplayer maps and a new zombie map which offers four big name Hollywood actors. Unlike the previous Revolution DLC, Uprising is looking to not include a new weapon.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising will include four new exotic multiplayer maps, plus an exciting new Zombies experience called “Mob of the Dead” that takes players to Alcatraz with four of the actors behind some of Hollywood’s most iconic mobsters, including Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, and Michael Madsen.

“With Uprising, the team has really outdone itself again,” said Mark Lamia, Treyarch’s Studio Head. “In addition to creating four amazing new multiplayer maps, the Studio has been hard at work on the Zombies front to surpass what we accomplished with ‘Call of the Dead.’ What they’ve done this time around is nothing Zombies fans have seen before – and if you don’t believe me, just wait until you get into Purgatory.”
Each of the four maps - Magma, Encore, Vertigo and Studio - will offer new, exotic and diverse multiplayer maps set around the globe for players to destroy their opponents on.

As usual, the Uprising DLC will be available first to Xbox users on April 17 for 1200 Microsoft Points, and to other platforms at a future date. Check out the trailer below for a glimpse at what to expect in each of the new maps and the new zombie mode.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will be gaining new, optional in-game purchases called Micro Items according to a recent update on the Xbox 360. Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has revealed on his 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.

In related Call of Duty news Activision has revealed that the top-eight Call of Duty: Black Ops II multiplayer teams from ANZ have been picked to virtually fight it out in the ANZ qualifiers for the Call of Duty Championships 2013 in Sydney on Friday 15th March.

  • Mirage: Located in China’s Gobi Desert, this luxury resort has been ravaged by a sandstorm.
