After having spent a long, exclusive time on Xbox 360, the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Vengeance PS3 release date has now been revealed. Fans of Black Ops 2 will have to wait just less than one more month, as Activision announced today that Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Vengeance will hit PS3 and PC on August 1.
Vengeance takes players to exotic locations around the globe and also serves up a new chapter to the Zombies experience with “Buried,” where the undead residents of an abandoned subterranean Old West mining town have come back to claim their home. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Vengeance will be available a la carte for $14.99 or for download by season pass holders. Note, however, that the full version of COD: Black Ops 2 is required to play it.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II Vengeance delivers four new, diverse multiplayer maps:
- 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: A destroyed suspension bridge, high above an East Coast waterway, packed with scattered vehicles, exposed iron and collapsed pavement where the head-to-head action will play out on multiple levels.
- Rush: Get ready 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-favorite 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
Buried, meanwhile, expands the popular COD Zombies mode. In Buried, once players meet up with the four survivors of Tranzit, they’ll begin to encounter the undead residents of an abandoned underground Old West mining town. A healthy arsenal of equipment and weapons 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 2 Zombies maps (with the purchase of Vengeance DLC) — the Ray Gun Mark II.
