Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s Apocalypse Map Pack Previewed

By: Sean Patterson - August 9, 2013

Earlier this week, Activision and Treyarch officially announced the final map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Titled, Apocalypse, the new add-on will contain four new competitive multiplayer maps and a new zombies mode map. Today, a video preview of the content in Apocalypse has been released.

The video shows David Vonderhaar, game design director at Treyarch, describing the thought behind each new map. Pod, the map set on a failed Taiwanese “utopian” village was imagined as a map where players could hop from one small pod-house to another. Frost, which depicts a snow-covered Amsterdam, centers action around a canal bridge and on ice. Takeoff, a remake of the Call of Duty: Black Ops map Stadium, has been re-skinned as a rocket launch facility. Dig, also a remake of the Call of Duty: World at War map Courtyard, is redesigned as an archaeological dig site.

Most of the video is given to the new zombies mode map, Origins. The map is set in World War 1 trenches and features dynamic weather, new weapons, and, of course, zombies. In addition, the giant, 1,000-foot-tall robot teased earlier this week will be striding across the map.

    Just curious …why dlc4 the last pack I’m a very big zombie fan and seen that there were serveral more zombie maps on black ops than it seems to be on black ops 2? When I seen black ops 2 the zombie part of the game I was really exited to see that it was a planet I was hopeing for a lot more out of the zombies I mean really there’s ahole sphere there witch looks like planet zombies but why stop with just 4.I my self would pay $15 for a singal map pack with three zombie maps on It .I was really hoping for a really really huge with all the specail weapons and all the perk drinks that would be awsome and in different place seting like egypt or the great wall just saying ima very big fan and I for one hope treyarch doesn’t stop zombies.
