“The revolution has begun!” Say’s Activision as the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution Map Pack is now available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. What is the first of four Map Packs, Revolution delivers an unprecedented amount of new and innovative 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 of franchise first offerings; a brand-new Zombies mode “Turned,” which turns the tables and allows gamers to play as a zombie, as well as a new bonus multiplayer weapon, the “Peacekeeper.” Revolution is available first, exclusively on Xbox LIVE 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.
The Multiplayer gameplay is expanded with “Downhill”, 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”, 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-favourite 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.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution is out now, exclusively on Xbox LIVE for a suggested retail price of 1200 Microsoft Points.
