The Black Ops 2 Revolution map is now good as confirmed and with it we have 5 new maps to explore. Now courtesy of a couple of developers over at the Black Ops 2 blog, we have a low down on what to expect from the Revolution DLC.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 Revolution DLC map details
This includes new weapons, tricks (‘Turned’ mode anyone?) and details of the map enviroments. If you were expecting more subtle landscapes then prepare to be blown away as there is an uncanny amount of diversification and detail among the 5 new maps for the Call Of Duty game. Here’s a quick summary of what to expect via the Black Ops 2 blog:
Hydro – This large map allows you to use the dam and water to your advantage to block paths and stop enemies.
Downhill – A medium-sized map based in the French Alps complete with snow, chair lifts, and a strategically placed lodge.
Grind – Set within the locale of the Venice, California boardwalk, this small skate park map is sure to deliver fast and frenetic Call of Duty action.
Mirage – This Gobi Desert multiplayer map utilises sand dunes to provide different levels of elevation and a sanctuary in the centre as a natural chokepoint.
Zombies – Die Rise – The Zombie apocalypse has invaded China, turning down town into a dilapidated and dangerous MC Escher painting. Also adds ‘Turned’ game mode that allows gamers to play as the Zombies and hunt down the one human player.
Peacekeeper SMG – This impressive sub-machine gun fills the open weapon slot in your load-out with power and accuracy.
Now I have to admit that this is all impressive. I do get a somewhat 90s vibe with many environments but the Turned mode in the Die Rise zombies map as well as the hilariously names Peacekeeper SMG has me salivating for this DLC. If rumors serve true, the Black Ops 2 Revolution DLC release date will be 29th January (Xbox 360).
