Activision and Treyarch have officially revealed the final downloadable expansion for power-selling shooter, Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Like previous DLC packs, “Apocalypse” harbours four new multiplayer maps along with an additional stage for the game’s popular “Zombies” mode.
Well, we say new; two of the four virtual battlegrounds are updated versions of Black Ops’ Stadium and World at War’s Courtyard, re-named Take-off and Dig respectively.
The other two maps, Frost and Pod, give players a chance to either duke it out over a frozen ravine or abandoned hippy commune, both with their own tactical hotspots and terrain.
Studio Head, Mark Lamia, described Apocalypse as ” a DLC pack that our fans will never forget.” This is due to the fact that Origins, Treyarch’s new co-op Zombies scenario, takes the spin-off game mode to new heights.
Featuring World at War’s original undead hunters, Tank, Nikolai, Takeo, and Rictofen, Origins sees them reunited in their most perilous outing to date. Not only will they have to fend off hordes of flesh-eaters, they’ll also need to crack an alien mystery and continually flee from a giant stalking mech.
Apocalypse releases on August 27th. As always, the DLC will launch first on Xbox 360, followed by a PS3/PC one month later.
