Activision announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution, the first of four Downloadable Content (DLC) Map Packs for the record-setting Call of Duty: Black Ops II has been launched.
Revolution delivers an unprecedented amount of new and innovative “must-play” content, including four radically diverse multiplayer maps from around the world, as well as a new Zombies map “Die Rise.”
Revolution also features a couple franchise first offerings, including a brand-new Zombies mode “Turned,” which literally turns the tables and allows gamers to play as a zombie, as well as a new bonus multiplayer weapon, the “Peacekeeper.”
Revolution is available today first, exclusively on Xbox LIVE for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, with other platforms to follow.
Fans can purchase Revolution individually, or pick it up as part of the Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC Season Pass discounted* bundle.
“Revolution is packed with a ton of fun,” said Mark Lamia, Treyarch’s Studio Head. “We worked incredibly hard to deliver the most expansive DLC offering in our studio’s history: from four maps in exciting and dynamic new locations like skate parks and ski slopes, to being able to play as a zombie, and a new bonus weapon in multiplayer – Revolution is a wild ride, and we’re excited for Call of Duty fans to start playing.”
Revolution delivers an unparalleled amount of variety and content for all types of Call of Duty: Black Ops II players, featuring four all-new multiplayer maps set around the globe. “Downhill” is a snowy alpine chateau perfect for hectic close-quarters combat. “Mirage” is a sand-devastated luxury villa suited for all play styles, while “Hydro” is a massive hydroelectric dam in Pakistan lined with long-range vantage points perfect for sniping. And “Grind” is a skate park in Venice Beach, where players must adapt to the map’s unique ramps, bowls and curvatures as they try and take cover from enemy fire.
Zombies fans get a terrifying double-dose of undead action in Revolution. First, the new map, “Die Rise,” drops players inside a maze of crumbling skyscrapers amidst a ravaged Chinese city, where all-new Wonder Weaponry will play a crucial role as they make a valiant stand against the impending zombie hoard. Additionally, Revolution’s innovative new Zombies mode, “Turned,” flips this new fan-favorite mode around, allowing players to become the undead and play as a zombie, offering an entirely new style of bragging rights.
Rounding out the wide breadth of new content in Revolution is the “Peacekeeper,” a one-time offering of a new multiplayer weapon planned for Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC.
To celebrate today’s launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution, Activision and Treyarch will pit baseball superstars Matt Cain of the San Francisco Giants and Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays against each other in a Grudge Match for Call of Duty bragging rights. Cain and Longoria will captain teams featuring development team members, online personalities and fans in an intense head-to-head battle.
