Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Revolution DLC due January 29, 2013?
This leaked image reveals some details of the first downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, with the Revolution DLC apparently set to contain 4 new multiplayer maps, a new Zombie map, and a new SMG named the Peacemaker.
The almost traditional pre-release leak of Call of Duty DLC hasn’t been officially confirmed or denied, but the Treyarch twitter account did say this on December 31, 2012:
No matter what you’ve got planned for New Year’s Eve, make sure to stay safe. We’ll see you in the new year with some news about DLC.
So assuming that the leaked image is accurate we have:
- Hydro – Based around a Hydro Dam
- Grind – Based in an urban skate park
- Downhill – Snowy resort and finally bringing the required snow level to Black Ops 2 multiplayer
- Mirage – Chinese Pagoda level
- Die Rise – Zombie-filled skyrise.
We’re pretty excited about the prospect of new maps, as the level design in Black Ops 2 is probably one of the weakest in the Call of Duty series, and it would be good to get some larger maps into the rotation. There’s only so much Hijack anyone can play after all.
A new gun will be interesting, although the SMG class is already pretty effectively represented. But we’ll wait and see if it can topple the Scorpion Evo as our SMG of choice.
Prices are obviously unannounced, but if you haven’t got the Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Season Pass, we’d guess it’ll be around the 1200 MS Points mark (Although obviously we hope it’ll be less). And it’ll probably arrive on PS3 a little later in the year. Either way, it’ll be more fun than running around another version of Nuketown.
