Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse is Coming
Santa Monica, CA – August 8, 2013 – The epic climax of Activision and Treyarch’s
Call of Duty®: Black Ops II Downloadable Content (DLC) Season Pass culminates with
Apocalypse. Available first on the Xbox Live® online entertainment network from
Microsoft on August 27, the game’s fourth and final DLC Pack delivers four thrilling
and diverse multiplayer maps, and the all-new wildly creative Zombies experience.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse delivers four diverse multiplayer maps:
* Pod: A failed utopian community from the 70’s has left stacks of dilapidated
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 traversal strategies to outsmart and ultimately outshoot their
* 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-favorite “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, a wide open layout and raised
platforms, but has provided fans with a fresh take on the multitude of paths.
In addition to the four maps, Apocalypse also reveals Origins, the most horrifying
and imaginative Zombies experience to date. Players will be deployed to
World War I-era France where they will encounter the return of the four original
heroes from the very first Zombies map, Tank, Nikolai, Takeo, and Rictofen, as
well as hordes of zombies that have overrun trenches and fields, as well as the
ruins of a mysterious and ancient location.
Unleashed after the Germans unearthed the mysterious “Element 115,” this next chapter
in the Zombies legacy will explore the saga’s origins as players reunite with an
unlikely band of soldiers that come together to defeat the greatest evil the world
has ever seen, using a period-specific arsenal that includes Wonder Weapons that
harness supernatural powers, a diesel-drone and Mark IV tank, as well a new perk
machine and power-ups – and that’s just the start. Players will need all the help
they can get to succeed in defeating the undead, as well as evading an unprecedented
1,000-foot tall robot abomination. In this stylized undead adventure, they’ll need
every advantage if they have any hope of surviving one of Treyarch’s deepest Zombies
experiences to date.
