Four All-New Multiplayer Maps, Including a Re-Imagined Fan-Favorite,
and the Epic, New Zombies Experience, "Buried," Available Now, First,
Exclusively on Xbox Live®
SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Call of Duty®: Black Ops II Vengeance, the newest
downloadable content (DLC) pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II
is available now, on the Xbox Live® online entertainment network from
Microsoft. The record setting title from Activision Publishing, Inc., a
wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI),
and its award-winning studio Treyarch, adds its third DLC pack, Vengeance,
to its already action-packed season of downloadable content. Call
of Duty: Black Ops II Vengeance delivers four new, diverse
multiplayer maps that will challenge even the most seasoned players:
"Cove," — The stage is set for all-out conflict on this small,
forgotten island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with players
battling it out amongst the wreckage of a jet that crash-landed during
a smuggling operation gone wrong.
"Detour," — The action plays out atop a destroyed suspension
bridge, high above an East Coast waterway, packed with scattered
vehicles, exposed iron and collapsed pavement enables head-to-head
action playing out on multiple levels.
"Rush," — Prepare for fast, close-quarters engagements in this
paintball course turned full-combat arena, giving players new
opportunities and challenges to use the cover to their advantage.
"Uplink," — In this re-imagined adaptation of the
fan-favorite multiplayer map "Summit" from the original Call
of Duty®: Black Ops, players clash deep in the rain-soaked jungles
of Myanmar, high atop a hi-tech mountain facility.
With "Buried," Treyarch yet again expands the canon of Zombies
fiction in brain-twisting ways. Players meet up with old characters and
will encounter new ones as they face off against the undead residents of
an abandoned underground Old West mining town. A healthy arsenal of
equipment and weapons that will be at players' disposal, but with one
very special addition — something so powerful it will also appear in all
other Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies maps (with the
purchase of Vengeance DLC): the Ray Gun Mark II.
of Duty: Black Ops II Vengeance is available now,
first on Xbox Live for Xbox 360® game and entertainment system from
Microsoft for 1200 Microsoft Points, with other platforms to follow.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is rated "M" (Mature — Blood
and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of
Drugs — content suitable for persons ages 17 and older) by the ESRB.
