Big news for Call of Duty fans. Activision just announced the launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising DLC pack on April 16. There are four new maps, including a Japanese island with an active volcano, an amphitheater in London, a skyscraper in India, a studio backlot in Hollywood, and a zombie map that involves mob gangsters. Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano, and Michael Madsen also make appearences:
Via the official press release:
Following tradition of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops fan-favorite Zombies mode "Call of the Dead," Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising's wildly creative new "Mob of the Dead" Zombies experience finds the four prohibition-era mobsters, Billy Handsome (Liotta), Al "The Weasel" Arlington (Pantoliano), Salvatore "Sal" DeLuca (Palmentiri), and Michael "Finn" O'Leary (Madsen) serving time in Alcatraz Prison, only to discover that being behind bars is the least of their problems. With plans to break out of Alcatraz foiled by the rise of the undead, the quartet of inmates will have to lean on their mob-derived skills with firearms, blunt instruments and improvised weaponry as they battle the zombies infesting and overrunning the island. 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. Additionally, if a player becomes an unfortunate victim, "Mob of the Dead's" new feature known as "Purgatory" sends players into the afterlife. This new twist on Zombies gameplay is ripe with its own set of objectives, and offers fans a truly new and unique experience.
The Uprising map pack costs $15, available through the Season Pass on XBox 360. No word on PS3 plans quite yet.
