The climax of Activision and Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II downloadable content (DLC) releases is upon us, with Apocalypse now available on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. The videogame’s fourth and final DLC pack delivers four diverse multiplayer maps and the all-new Zombies experience, “Origins”.

With Apocalypse, Activision Publishing, Inc. and Treyarch have partnered with award-winning Warner Bros. Records rock band, Avenged Sevenfold, who contribute the song Shepherd of Fire from their upcoming album, Hail to the King, to the Zombies experience. Along with Avenged Sevenfold, famed comics illustrator and painter, Alex Ross, has also lent his talent to Origins, providing original art that features the original Zombies heroes. One of the most esteemed comic book artists of all time, Ross is most famous for his work with DC and Marvel Comics and has won many notable awards for his artistic design.

“Apocalypse is Treyarch’s grand finale to Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. “It is the perfect culmination of our efforts and fan feedback, with two all-new multiplayer maps for players to experience for the first time and two fully reimagined fan-favourite multiplayer maps from past games – and Origins, our most epic Zombies experience to date. Apocalypse is a DLC pack that our fans will never forget.”

Call of Duty: Black Ops II – Apocalypse delivers four diverse multiplayer maps:

·         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-favourite “Courtyard” from Call of Duty®: World at War, where two archaeological 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.

In addition to the four maps, Call of Duty: Black Ops II – Apocalypse also delivers a new and imaginative Zombies experience in Origins. Players will be deployed to Dieselpunk-stylised World War I-era France where they will encounter the return of the four original heroes from the very first Zombies map, Tank, Nikolai, Takeo, and Rictofen, as well as hordes of zombies that have overrun trenches and fields, as well as the ruins of a mysterious and ancient location.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II – Apocalypse is available now exclusively on Xbox LIVE for the Xbox 360, priced at 1200 Microsoft Points. The launch on other platforms will follow at a later date and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Call of Duty: Black Ops II – Apocalypse.
