As the old saying goes, “the revolution will not be televised.” Nonsense – it’s not only on your TV screen, but it will be interactive, too. Revolution, the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, arrives on PlayStation Network on 28th February – and there’s more inside this collection than you may be expecting.



Revolution offers a heck of a lot of content for both multiplayer and Zombies fans. First up are the four multiplayer maps:

Hydro: Located in Pakistan, this hydro-electric plant comes complete with a lethal spillway that floods with very little warning.
Grind: Set in a skate park in Venice Beach (the birthplace of skateboarding!), quarter-pipes and curved surfaces drive players away from easy cover and into intense firefights.
Downhill: A ski resort in the French Alps, this snowy map is complete with a moving gondola system that can both offer cover and crush you to death.
Mirage: Located in China’s Gobi Desert, this luxury resort has been ravaged by a sandstorm.

It’s worth noting that Mirage is also the first Black Ops II map where Domination takes place in a triangular flag pattern instead of a linear one – that is, you can run laps around the main hotel (or cut through it) as you try to capture the three flags at three different corners of the map. You may find this changes up your Domination strategies a bit.

As a bonus, Revolution also contains the first downloadable weapon in Call of Duty history. The Peacekeeper SMG has the small form factor of a compact submachine gun, but the range of an assault rifle. It’s actually rated two points higher in range than the longest-range SMG in the game, the MSMC. It’s not the overpowered monster that I think some gamers were afraid it might be, but it will likely become a very popular choice for the short-to-medium range specialists out there. And once you level it up along with the rest of your SMGs, it too can sport gold and diamond camos.


If you are a Zombies fan, Treyarch has some secrets and surprises in store for you, too. Die Rise is an all-new Zombies level that takes place in a shattered skyscraper; one false move might send you right over the edge in a very literal and non-metaphorical sense.

The verticality of this level makes it feel unlike other Zombies experiences; you’re constantly finding new places above and below, exploring the rubble, locating parts for buildables, and even finding surprises in the very unsafe elevators. Some of those surprises are good, and some of them…well, just be prepared for anything, okay?


Last but definitely not least, Revolution offers a new way to play Zombies altogether, in the form of a new mode called Turned. Throw out your expectations for a strategic and calculating Zombies experience – this one’s all about adrenaline.

Up to four players can join in; one is human, the other three are zombies. The winner of the match is the person who can survive as the human the longest. A Reverse Gun Game weapon loadout means that the human switches from powerful to weaker weapons as their turn continues; whichever zombie player can take out the human becomes the human themselves.

It’s very fast, very frantic, and makes a great short experience for those times you want to play but can’t commit to a long gameplay session.

I've lost interest a little. Will need to finish the SP mode.

How are the new maps? Are they anything unusual?
 
I think it's the best cod so far still happily playing it. Lag is interesting at times but way better than mw3 and even blops for me.
Not had chance to play the new maps yet though

New maps aren't anything out of the ordinary just adds some freshness. The SP was so so for me, finally finished it yesterday. Kudos to Treyarc for trying new things I just didn't feel that it worked.

I play on 360 if any one wants to add me.

The new things you talk of are the extra missions jammed In between the normal levels? I didn't think they worked very well either. To the extent that I don't bother playing them.

well if you hurry up and buy blops 1 you will see why. firing range is one of the best maps i think on COD. it sits along with Grid, WMD and Nuketown
