Get ready “Call of Duty®” fans. On Aug. 27, Activision and Treyarch will launch “Call of Duty: Blacks Ops II Apocalypse” – the fourth and final DLC map pack for “Call of Duty®: Black Ops II” – first on Xbox Live. Our friends at Activision shared with us the following details:
“Call of Duty®: Black Ops II Apocalypse” marks Treyarch and Activision’s fourth and final DLC map pack for “Call of Duty®: Black Ops II,” capping-off the year with two all-new Multiplayer Maps, two re-imagined fan-favorite Multiplayer classics, and an alternate-reality Dieselpunk Zombies experience that transports players to the undead-infested trenches of a World War I battlefield.
- Pod: A failed utopian community from the 70’s has left stacks of dilapidated residential pods nestled into an abandoned cliff side. Its residents long gone, the modernist compound now hosts frenetic combat as players must run atop the pods and 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: Though marooned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this remote launch site is all about the close-quarters combat, combining tight corners with open spaces for combat encounters reminiscent of the multiplayer map "Stadium" from “Call of Duty®: Black Ops ‘First Strike.’”
- Dig: Two archeological dig sites in Afghanistan have unearthed the perfect playground for combatants eager for hectic, unceasing battle, as this re-imagining of the fan-favorite “Call of Duty®: World at War” map "Courtyard" delivers two major chokepoints, a wide open layout, and raised platforms.
We were there at the beginning and we’ll be there at the end!
With “Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse,” Treyarch reveals “Origins,” the most horrifying and imaginative Zombies experience yet. 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, as well as hordes of zombies that have overrun trenches and fields, as well as the ruins of a mysterious and ancient location.
Unleashed after the Germans unearthed the mysterious new “Element 115,” this next chapter in the Zombies legacy will explore the saga’s origins as players reunite with an unlikely band of soldiers that come together to defeat the greatest evil the world has ever seen, using a period-specific arsenal that includes Wonder Weapons that harness supernatural powers, a diesel-drone and Mark IV tank, as well a new perk machine and power-ups – and that’s just the start. Players will need all the help they can get to succeed in defeating the undead, as well as evading an unprecedented 1,000-foot tall robot abomination. In this stylized undead adventure, they’ll need every advantage if they have any hope of surviving one of Treyarch’s deepest Zombies experiences to date.
“Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse” is available to “Call of Duty®: Black Ops II” Season Pass holders and as a standalone map pack on Aug. 27 first on Xbox LIVE® (other platforms to follow).
