Last week, we reported that there were rumours circling about the first DLC pack for Black Ops 2. Activision has officially confirmed those rumours.
The ‘Revolution’ downloadable content for Black Ops 2 will be available on January 29 and will be a timed exclusive for Xbox 360 users. The map pack will come with four new multiplayer maps (Hydro, Grind, Downhill and Mirage), a new co-op Zombies map (Die Rise), and a new gun called the Peacekeeper.
Also coming with the map pack is a new game mode, for Zombies, called Turned. Turned allows you to actually play as the zombies. This isn’t something new to the zombie genre (Left4Dead anyone?), but it is something new to the Call of Duty Zombies mode.
Hopefully the new gun will be balanced well and won’t turn the game into a pay to win affair.
The Revolution pack will set you back 1200 Microsoft points, or $14.99 if you are in America. In Australia, it’s about $20. The pack will be free to players who purchased the Black Ops 2 season pass.
You can see details about the new maps and game mode in the official video below.
