Call of Duty: Black Ops II fans, here’s some news that probably isn’t all that “newsworthy” for you but we’re letting you know anyway: COD 2: Black Ops 2 Uprising is available today exclusively on Xbox Xbox 360. The DLC will hit other platforms later, although Activision hasn’t specified the release date on PS3, Wii U or PC.
Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising is the second DLC Map Pack for the game. Uprising includes four new multiplayer maps and the new “Mob of the Dead” Zombies experience, featuring legendary Hollywood actors Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, and Michael Madsen as four mobster inmates trying to escape a zombie infested Alcatraz.
Black Ops II Uprising’s new “Mob of the Dead” Zombies experience puts players in the shoes of four prohibition-era mobsters, Billy Handsome (Liotta), Al “The Weasel” Arlington (Pantoliano), Salvatore “Sal” DeLuca (Palminteri), and Michael “Finn” O’Leary (Madsen), 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, exotic and unique multiplayer maps set around the globe:
- “Magma” is a modern Japanese village with volcanic eruptions carving multiple paths throughout the town;
- “Encore” takes place in the aftermath of a deserted London music festival and leaves numerous opportunities for plenty of run-and-gun, close quarters combat;
- “Vertigo” is a futuristic high-rise mega-structure located in India and features dizzying vistas and multi-tiered pathways;
- “Studio” is 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.
Black Ops 2: Uprising has a suggested retail price of $14.99 — which equates to 1200 Microsoft Points. The Uprising DLC Map Pack is also included in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC Season Pass.
