Call of Duty: Black Ops 2‘s final downloadable content pack is titled Apocalypse and is headed to Xbox 360 on Aug. 27, developer Treyarch announced today. The fourth DLC installment for Treyarch’s highly popular shooter will add four maps and a new zombie mode, Origins.
The DLC will add two brand new multiplayer maps and two remakes of “classics”. The official descriptions for the four maps read:
Pod: A failed utopian community from the 70’s has left stacks of dilapidated residential pods nestled into an abandoned cliff side in Taiwan. Its residents long gone, the modernist compound now hosts frenetic combat as players must run atop the pods, as well as navigate their multi-tiered interiors for a strategic edge.
Frost: Fresh snow meets explosive gunpowder in this snow-capped European city, where the bridge over a frozen canal separates it into two sides, requiring players to employ multi-level traversal strategies to outsmart and ultimately outshoot their enemies.
Takeoff: Fans of “Stadium” from the original Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC will find themselves at home on “Takeoff.” Marooned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this remote launch site is all about close-quarters combat, combining tight corners with open spaces for intense encounters.
Dig: An adaptation of the fan-favorite “Courtyard” from Call of Duty: World at War, where two archeological dig sites in Afghanistan become the perfect playground for combatants eager for hectic, unceasing confrontations. Treyarch, has retained the spirit of “Courtyard” with two major chokepoints, a wide open layout and raised platforms, but has provided fans with a fresh take on the multitude of paths.
Origins, the new zombie mode, will have players once again controlling Tank, Nikolai, Takeo, and Rictofen — the guys from the original zombies mode— as they survive in a World War I-era France that’s full of walking corpses.
Apocalypse debuts on the Xbox 360 for 1,200 Microsoft Points ($15) on Aug. 27 launch. As usual, the DLC is a timed exclusive, so PC and PS3 fans will have to wait and unspecified amount of time (usually 30 days) for their chance to buy the DLC.
