Four All-New Multiplayer Maps, Including a Re-Imagined Fan Favourite, and the Epic, New Zombies Experience, “Buried,” Available Now, First, Exclusively on Xbox Live®
London, UK – 2nd July, 2013 – Call of Duty®: Black Ops II Vengeance, the newest downloadable content (DLC) pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is available now on the Xbox Live® online entertainment network from Microsoft. The record setting title from Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI), and its award-winning studio Treyarch, adds its third DLC pack, Vengeance to its already action-packed season of downloadable content. Call of Duty: Black Ops II Vengeance delivers four new diverse multiplayer maps that will challenge even the most seasoned players:
· “Cove” – The stage is set for all-out conflict on this small, forgotten island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with players battling it out amongst the wreckage of a jet that crash-landed during a smuggling operation gone wrong
· “Detour” – The action plays out atop a destroyed suspension bridge, high above an East Coast waterway, packed with scattered vehicles, exposed iron and collapsed pavement enables head-to-head action playing out on multiple levels
· “Rush” – Prepare for fast, close-quarters engagements in this paintball course turned full-combat arena, giving players new opportunities and challenges to use the cover to their advantage
· “Uplink” – In this re-imagined adaptation of the fan-favourite multiplayer map “Summit” from the original Call of Duty®: Black Ops, players clash deep in the rain-soaked jungles of Myanmar, high atop a hi-tech mountain facility
With “Buried,” Treyarch yet again expands the canon of Zombies fiction in brain-twisting ways. Players meet up with old characters and will encounter new ones as they face off against the undead residents of an abandoned underground Old West mining town. A healthy arsenal of equipment and weapons that will be at players’ disposal but with one very special addition – something so powerful it will also appear in all other Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies maps (with the purchase of Vengeance DLC): the Ray Gun Mark II.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II Vengeance is available now, first on Xbox Live for Xbox 360® game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 1200 Microsoft Points, with other platforms to follow.
