Rumors are out and reports are in for the highly anticipated and heavily rumored Revolution DLC for the popular FPS (first-person shooter) title 'Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.'
Per reports, Activision and Treyarch have officially announced the first DLC for Black Ops 2 titled Revolution, and as speculated earlier, the DLC does indeed arrive on Jan. 29 for the Xbox 360 on Xbox LIVE for 1200 Microsoft Points.
As always, it seems like both PlayStation 3 and PC players will have to wait a while before they get their hands on the brand new DLC from the developers for the game. As far as the new features are concerned, the map pack takes the gamer to foreign locations like Gobi desert, far east, and Pakistan.
Revolution includes four all-new Multiplayer maps, a new Zombies map, an exclusive Multiplayer weapon, and a brand new Zombies game mode.
"Revolution includes four Multiplayer maps diverse in both setting and playstyle: fight for control in 'Mirage,' a sand-swept luxury resort in the Gobi Desert; navigate through half-pipes and skate ramps in 'Grind,' battling within a massive skate park in California's Venice Beach; dodge the floodwaters in 'Hydro' to hold down a hydroelectric dam in Pakistan; and take the fight to a French Alps ski resort in 'Downhill'," the official page states.
This will be the first time in the history of the franchise that a brand new multiplayer weapon - the Peacekeeper - will be introduced. The Peacekeeper is a hybrid SMG-Assault Rifle, and this unique weapon is available exclusively to those that pick up the Revolution content pack, complete with its own set of XP-earning challenges.
On the popular zombie mode, the official page states that zombies "are about to be taken to new heights, as the undead threat goes vertical in 'Die Rise.' Moving along a series of collapsed skyscrapers, players must watch their step when fighting through the maze-like terrain. With brand new buildables and Wonder Weaponry though, players will be well-armed for this Zombies experience."
Moreover, there is a brand-new Zombies game mode called Turned, where players can compete against each other as a zombie. In Turned, a lone human player fights for survival and points against a field of zombie players. The first zombie to hunt the human down earns the right to spawn in as the new human.
