Activision and Treyarch announce new Vengeance DLC for Call of Duty:
Black Ops II, saying this will debut exclusively on Xbox LIVE on July 2nd
before making its way to other systems at some point thereafter. The new pack
will add four multiplayer maps, "including a re-imagined classic," to the
military shooter sequel along with a new zombies "experience," and
this trailer offers a
look at what to expect. Here's word:
Call of Duty: Black Ops II Vengeance
delivers four new, diverse multiplayer maps starting with "Cove," where the
stage is set for all-out conflict on this small, forgotten island in the middle
of the Indian Ocean, with players battling it out amongst the wreckage of a jet
that crash-landed during a smuggling operation gone wrong. Next up is "Detour,"
a destroyed suspension bridge, high above an East Coast waterway, packed with
scattered vehicles, exposed iron and collapsed pavement where the head-to-head
action will play out on multiple levels. The third map, "Rush," sets the stage
for fast, close-quarters engagements in this paintball course turned full-combat
arena, giving players new opportunities and challenges to use the cover to their
advantage. Rounding out Vengeance's multiplayer maps is "Uplink." In this
re-imagined adaptation of the fan-favorite multiplayer map "Summit" from the
original Call of DutyŽ: Black Ops, players clash deep in the rain-soaked jungles
of Myanmar, high atop a hi-tech mountain facility.
Treyarch yet again expands the Zombies storyworld in new, mind-bending ways with
"Buried." Players meet up with old characters and will encounter new ones as
they face off against the undead residents of an abandoned underground Old West
mining town. A healthy arsenal of equipment and weapons that will be at players'
disposal, but with one very special addition - something so powerful it will
also appear in all other Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies maps (with the
purchase of Vengeance DLC): the Ray Gun Mark II.
