Black Ops II Apocalypse DLC out August 27 on Xbox

Developer Treyarch have revealed to gamers the fourth and final piece of downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, the expansion titled ‘Apocalypse’ features four multiplayer maps and a brand new zombies map called ‘Origins’, which was teased to fans earlier this week. The map pack will release on August 27th, for Xbox 360 users first, with the rest getting it a month later as usual.

Not much information has been shared about the expansion’s zombie map, but descriptions of the four multiplayer maps have been released and once again offer gamers a variety of settings. You can check out the descriptions below:

  • Pod: A failed utopian community from the 70’s has left stacks of dilapidated residential pods nestled into an abandoned cliff side in Taiwan. Its residents long gone, the modernist compound now hosts frenetic combat as players must run atop the pods, as well as 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: Fans of Stadium from the original Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC will find themselves at home on Takeoff. Marooned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this remote launch site is all about close-quarters combat, combining tight corners with open spaces for intense encounters.
  • Dig: An adaptation of the fan-favorite Courtyard from Call of Duty: World at War, where two archeological dig sites in Afghanistan become the perfect playground for combatants eager for hectic, unceasing confrontations. Treyarch, has retained the spirit of Courtyard with two major chokepoints, a wide open layout and raised platforms, but has provided fans with a fresh take on the multitude of paths.

Make sure to stay tuned to the site for information on the expansion’s zombie offering once it drops, which will most likely come in the form of a trailer released through Treyarch’s YouTube page.
