Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Apocalypse; the final DLC mappack.
Unleashed after the Germans unearthed the mysterious Element 115, this next chapter in the Zombies legacy will explore the saga’s origins as players reunite with an unlikely band of soldiers that come together to defeat the greatest evil the world has ever seen, using a period-specific arsenal that includes Wonder Weapons that harness supernatural powers, a diesel-drone and Mark IV tank, as well a new perk machine and power-ups – and that’s just the start. Players will need all the help they can get to succeed in defeating the undead, as well as evading an unprecedented 1,000-foot tall robot abomination.”
The final expansion adds 4 Multiplayer maps, as well as a new Zombies experience called Origins.
The four maps include two remakes of "fan-favorite" maps. Here's how Activision describes them:
- 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 will, as expected, take players into a WWI-themed zombies campaign, starring the four original heroes from the first Zombies map: Tank, Nikolia, Takeo, and Rictofen. The story promises to explore the origins of the zombie "saga," while giving players access to new supernatural Wonder Weapons, a Mark IV tank, and more... as players try to avoid getting stomped by a giant mech.
The intro of the zombie adventure will feature the Avenged Sevenfold's "Sheperd of Fire" song.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Apocalypse will be available on Xbox Live for 1200 Microsoft Points on August 27, with other platforms to follow. Players who have already purchased the Season Pass can download Apocalypse as soon as it becomes available.
