Black Ops 2 Uprising DLC Confirmed for April 16th Release

There have been countless rumors circling the web about what the next DLC for Black Ops 2 will be. The story goes that someone poked around in the CoD website source code and found something that seemed like the name of the next content pack… Uprising. Well, today Treyarch officially announced the Uprising DLC pack which includes 4 new multiplayer maps and a new Zombies experience called Mob of the Dead. The DLC’s release date is scheduled for an April 16th launch, coming first to Xbox Live.

Here are some details regarding this new downloadable content… First off, the 4 new multiplayer maps:

Magma

Black Ops 2 Magma

Magma

Magma is set in a Japanese village with an active volcano sitting on the outside of the map. According to the official intel video this map introduces the first environmental element that players will have to watch out for – lava. At random times the volcano will erupt, sending lava running through the streets that players will have to avoid or burn to death in. Regardless, the map still looks interesting. There are plenty of damaged buildings to take cover in along with narrow walkways and long paths where players can engage in both short and ranged combat.

Encore

Black Ops 2 Encore

Encore

Encore is an outdoor concert venue. Based on the video preview it’s basically nothing more than a large stage with an outer perimeter and stands that players can maneuver in and around. It looks to be a rather small map that will provide plenty of close-range, fast-paced battles. There are plenty of objects in the map for cover, though, including cranes, boxes, crates, and the like.

Vertigo

Black Ops 2 Vertigo

Vertigo

Vertigo is a skyscraper owned by the same company that built all of the drones found throughout the Black Ops 2 campaign. It consists of several rooms and a roof that players can fight it out on. The roof of the building has very narrow beams and walkways where players will have to be precise with their movements as not to fall off the skyscraper to their death. Not much else is known about this map at this time.

Studio

Black Ops 2 Studio

Studio

Studio is a brilliant remake of the original Call of Duty Black Ops map, Firing Range. The same buildings and overall layout are present but the entire map has been given an updated look in the form of a Hollywood movie set design featuring camera equipment, aliens, pirate ships, western saloons, and more. This gives the map a very fun makeover for players to enjoy on a map that was by far one of the most popular from the original BO game.

And, finally, the new zombies content…

Mob of the Dead

Black Ops 2 Mob of the Dead

Mob of the Dead

Mob of the Dead is an entirely new zombies experience that players can enjoy. It’s set in Alcatraz in the 1920s and the characters resemble people from that time.  More information regarding this content will be added once it is released.

Here’s the official trailer for the BO2 Uprising DLC content:

Looks like we’ve got another great content pack coming for this game! Be sure to pick it up on April 16th (if you’re on the Xbox 360, that is.).
