Following in the wake of over 1 Billion dollars in sales, Activision and TreyArch have announced the first Downloadable Content for the smash hit Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, dropping first on Xbox 360 on January 29, 2013. The Black Ops 2 Season Pass was announced along with launch and includes all four scheduled Map Pack releases in addition to a special Player Card Background in-game. The Season Pass is available now for 4000 Microsoft Points.
The first DLC Pack, Revolution, will be available independently for a price-tag of 1200 Microsoft Points or included as part of the Season Pass bundle. Poised to bring a slew of new content into the game, this may well be the biggest Call of Duty addon to date.
The core of the DLC is the 4 new multiplayer maps bringing players to iconic locations around the world such as Venice Beach, CA and The French Alps. The new maps promise to provide a variety of new gameplay with both short and long range combat options spread across the various existing Game modes in multiplayer.
As if 4 new MP maps was not enough, this DLC pack is the first in the history of the Call of Duty franchise to offer a new weapon for players to make use of. The “Peacekeeper”, a new SMG, will appear for players use in multiplayer including a whole new batch of accompanying weapon challenges to earn XP and level up.
For all those Zombies fans out there, you are not to be left out! 1 new Zombies map will debut in this pack. “Die Rise” will bring players to the Far East to take on and battle a zombie infestation amongst the ruins of a broken Chinese city, featuring new “Wonder Weaponry” as well as new items to construct to keep the horde at bay.
Yet another first for the franchise is featured in this DLC, a new game mode called “Turned”. This is the first ever game mode to allow players to compete against each other as a Zombie! This could very well be one of the DLC Packs most popular features. We will find out on drop day, January 29, 2013!
