Activision has announced the final downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, called Apocalypse. The DLC pack includes four multiplayer maps and a new Zombies campaign map, "Origins".
In addition, the rock band Avenged Sevenfold has composed a new song, "Shepherd of Fire", specifically for the DLC, which will also be included in their upcoming album "Hail to the King".
The four multiplayer maps include:
* 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.
The "Origins" Zombie map takes place in a dieselpunk World War I France where the first four heroes from the first Zombie map will be bunkered down in battlefield trenches and fields overrun by zombies.
Apocalypse will first be released on Xbox Live Marketplace on the 27th August, while the PC and PlayStation 3 platforms will have to wait. The DLC will cost 1200 Microsoft Points ($14.99).
