Black Ops II – “Revolution” map pack trailer
You knew this was coming, right? If not, I hope you’re enjoying it over there on Mars. A map pack is just around the corner for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, called Revolution, and here’s a trailer for it.
In it, you’ll see various Treyarch staff introduce and talk about the various maps. Let’s do a quick rundown, shall we?
Hydro: This is a dam set in Pakistan. Apparently, floods will occur during the match. Waterslides not included.
Grind: Literally, a skatepark in California. Unfortunately, no skateboards, though the unpredictability of ramps and pipes should be interesting. If only there was a Tony Hawk cameo.
Downhill: Pretty much a ski resort. Lifts will be available, otherwise it’s another snow-themed map.
Mirage: A luxury hotel in China that’s being ravaged by sandstorms. Gosh, we just can’t give foreigners a break, can we? At least the dunes allow for you to climb them, slide down them, or otherwise use them to your advantage.
Die Rise: This one’s actually a zombies map, and it takes place in a skyscraper in the middle east. It should definitely ‘elevate’ the zombies experience. Ha! Get it? Because it’s elevated and there are many levels to it? Bah.
It also includes a new weapon, the Peacekeeper, and a new zombies mode, Turned, which allows you to actually play as a zombie. It’ll be available for the usual 1200 MS Points ($15) on Jan. 29 for Xbox 360 users. Or, if you bought the season pass, you’ll receive it that way. PS3 and PC dates have not been announced because exclusivity.
