The Apocalypse DLC is the fourth and final DLC installment for the hit Black Ops 2. Fans can expect the Apocalypse DLC to include the following content: four multiplayer maps and a new Zombies mode called Origins.
In the upcoming Origins mode, players will be deployed to “Dieselpunk-stylized World War I-era France where they will encounter the return of the four original heroes from the very first Zombies map. This includes Tank, Nikolai, Takeo, and Rictofen. You’ll also encounter hordes of zombies that have overrun trenches and fields, as well as the ruins of a mysterious and ancient location”.
As for the four multiplayer maps, three are brand new, while one being an adaptation of the fan favorite “Courtyard” from Call of Duty: World at War. Here is the full list of maps that will be available at launch:
- Pod: A failed utopian community from the 70’s has left stacks of dilapidated residential pods nestled into an abandoned cliff side in Taiwan. Its residents long gone, the modernist compound now hosts frenetic combat as players must run atop the pods, as well as navigate their multi-tiered interiors for a strategic edge.
- Frost: Fresh snow meets explosive gunpowder in this snow-capped European city, where the bridge over a frozen canal separates it into two sides, requiring players to employ multi-level traversal strategies to outsmart and ultimately outshoot their enemies.
- Takeoff: Fans of “Stadium” from the original Call of Duty®: Black Ops First Strike DLC will find themselves at home on “Takeoff.” Marooned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this remote launch site is all about close-quarters combat, combining tight corners with open spaces for intense encounters.
- Dig: An adaptation of the fan-favorite “Courtyard” from Call of Duty®: World at War, where two archeological dig sites in Afghanistan become the perfect playground for combatants eager for hectic, unceasing confrontations. Treyarch, has retained the spirit of “Courtyard” with two major chokepoints, a wide open layout and raised platforms, but has provided fans with a fresh take on the multitude of paths.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 – Apocalypse DLC will be available first on the Xbox 360 this August 27th. Those who have a season pass will be able to get this DLC for free.
