This weeks Call of Duty Black Ops 2 updates brings us the announcement in the next DLC Pack Uprising. As well as a sneak peak at something I received that I will be reviewing and giving away! So take a look inside its going to get hot in here!
DLC Map Pack Uprising
Treyarch really knocked it out of the park on this one. I don’t know how well they will play but the maps look amazing. Plus the mix of things like Lava, adding a high rise element, and bringing back some old with the new means this pack might be the best one released by Treyarch yet!
This map takes place in a modern Japanese village when a Volcano explodes and adds that extra danger when playing this map. Molten Lava is going to either be your friend or foe depending on how well you can watch out for it in this map!
Set in an outdoor festival in London. You get to take center stage and show the other team who’s boss! With long sight lines if you can control center stage you will own the crowd – with your bullets lol. This map also has some tighter paths in the outlying tents and stands.
Taking place in an mega high rise in India this one is reminiscent of other maps like MW2’s “High Rise” or MW3’s “Hardhat”. In this map you play across a VTOL landing pad and the terminal. You can also jump to different areas in the map. Beware though one false move will have you falling to your death!
This one is an homage to the original Black Ops “Firing Range”. This time taken to a backlot studio in Hollywood. But this is no Universal Studio Tour. Sure you will get to see the different backdrops like the Old West, an Alien Invasion, Dinosaurs from the Jurassic period, and even a Castle from medieval times. You’ll be too busy trying to take the high ground or staying alive as you try and out flank your opponents!
New Zombie Episode – “Mob of the Dead”
Treyarch brings back classic mobsters with Zombies! How much better can it get than that? With the voicings of Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, and Michael Madsen (and a Joe P?). What else could make it more badass? Set it in Alcatraz – an island where there is no way off of it! I might have to play me some Zombies when this comes out.
You can check out the awesome preview trailer below.
Availability for Xbox360
Of course the rest of us have to wait. But if you are on Xbox 360 this will become available to you on April 16th. Which means PS3 and PC players will have to wait until May 14th (Estimated Date – NOT confirmed) until we can play the new maps.
Upcoming Review and Giveaway
The folks over at Gamers Option sent me a Rapid Fire controller for the PS3. And all I can say it is badass. Not only does it look great, it plays awesome, and the features are great too! Check out the little teaser below and stay tuned for the upcoming review and giveaway!
