More Maps and Zombies heading our way.
Rumors have been floating around about the new Call of Duty Black Ops 2 “Uprising” DLC for the last week or so, and today Activision and Treyarch confirmed that the new DLC pack will be released as an Xbox 360 timed-exclusive on April 16th for 1200 MS Points.
Uprising will include four new multiplayer maps: Magma, Vertigo, Studio and Encore. The other three are brand new maps, but Studio is actually a “contemporary remake” of the original Black Ops Firing Range map. Uprising will also include a brand new Zombies mode called “Mob of the Dead”, which takes place in Alcatraz Prison and features actors Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, and Michael Madsen playing four mobsters trying to escape the island. Mob of the Dead will feature a new twist that will send any player that dies to Purgatory, which is said to be “ripe with its own set of objectives, and offers fans a truly new and unique experience.”
As always, no details on the PS3 and PC release dates were provided, but we’ll update again once we know more. To learn more about the Uprising DLC, and see it in action, check out the video below.
