Call of Duty: Black Ops II Final Map Pack AnnouncedBy: Sean Patterson - August 8, 2013
The latest map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, titled Vengeance, was released in early July, and just hit the PlayStation 3 and PC last week. Today, Treyarch and Activision have announced the the final DLC map pack for Black Ops will be coming to Xbox Live on August 27 for 1200 Microsoft Points.
The Apocalypse DLC will feature four competitive multiplayer maps – Pod, Frost, Takeoff, and Dig – and one zombie map. Pod features a cliffside Taiwanese failed “utopian” town from the 70s where broken pod-houses stand. Frost features a snow-covered European city with a canal running through the middle. Takeoff is a remake of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops DLC map Stadium, now set in the middle of the Pacific ocean. Dig is also a remake, of the Call of Duty: World at War map Courtyard, though the setting has changed to Afghanistan and the layout of the map had changed somewhat.
The new zombie map, titled Origins, was teased earlier this week in a trailer from Treyarch. It will feature the original characters from the first zombie map in Call of Duty: World at War. Players will tackle zombies in what developers are referring to as a “Dieselpunk” France during World War I. The map features trenches and fields, but it also features “wonder weapons” with spiritual powers, a diesel-powered drone, and that 1,000-foot tall robot that was teased in the trailer.
