Apocalypse is the final DLC pack included in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II Season Pass and is now available on Xbox Live. Offering players four new multiplayer maps, as well as “Origins” – an all new zombie experience bringing back our original heroes from Call of Duty: World at War.

“We have been going hard at it all year, supporting the game, and delivering new content and experiences for fans, and Apocalypse is the perfect conclusion to the Black Ops 2 season of content,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head for the developer Treyarch. “Multiplayer fans have it all with this one, and Origins will yet again set a new bar for Zombies.”

Activision has released detailed summaries of all four maps included in the Apocalypse DLC pack.

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 strategies as they traverse the terrain in order to outsmart, and ultimately out-shoot 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-favourite “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 and a wide open layout with raised platforms, but has also provided fans with a fresh take by including a multitude of pathways.

Alongside the four multiplayer maps is the new unique zombie experience known as “Origins“. Players will find themselves in a Dieselpunk-stylised World War I-era France, that reunites the four original heroes – Tank, Nikolai, Takeo, and Richtofen.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse is now available on Xbox 360 for $19.95, with other platform releases to follow. Players who have purchased the Season Pass on Xbox 360, can now download this DLC pack free of charge.
