The Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising DLC Map Pack has been available exclusively on Xbox 360 for a while, and now we know when the timed-exclusive content will be available on other platforms. Beginning May 16, PS3 and PC players will have the opportunity to play Uprising, which includes four new multiplayer maps, plus “Mob of the Dead,” a new Zombies experience that takes players to the notorious prison island of Alcatraz.
Following the tradition of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops fan-favorite Zombies mode “Call of the Dead,” Uprising’s new “Mob of the Dead” Zombies experience puts players on the island of Alcatraz and in the shoes of four Prohibition-era mobsters: Billy Handsome (Ray Liotta), Al “The Weasel” Arlington (Joe Pantoliano), Salvatore “Sal” DeLuca (Chazz Palminteri), and Michael “Finn” O’Leary (Michael Madsen). All four are serving time in Alcatraz Prison, only to discover that being behind bars is the least of their problems. In order to survive, players must work their way through the steel cells and aging concrete buildings while fighting off a multitude of zombified prisoners and guards trapped on the island with them.
Uprising also debuts four new diverse multiplayer maps, each set around the globe:
- Magma – Set within a modern Japanese village, volcanic eruptions carve multiple paths throughout the town.
- Encore – Taking place in the aftermath of a deserted London music festival, Encore leaves numerous opportunities for run-and-gun, close quarters combat.
- Vertigo – A futuristic high-rise mega-structure located in India featuring dizzying vistas and multi-tiered pathways.
- Studio – A contemporary re-imagining of “Firing Range,” the fan-favorite multiplayer map from the original Call of Duty: Black Ops. “Studio” is a Hollywood movie back lot with a variety of cinematic themes that range from Sci-Fi to the Old West.
