Call of Duty: Black Ops II — Revolution DLC coming to PSN Feb 28

Dan Amrich's Avatar + Posted by Dan Amrich on Feb 12, 2013 // Community Manager, Activision

Hydro - Damned Bridge

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 February 28 – and there’s more inside this collection than you may be expecting.

Grind - Judges Table
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.

Mirage - Sandy Oasis

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.

Downhill - Ski Lift
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?

Turned

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.

Prepare to have your high expectations met when Revolution arrives on PSN February 28. And look for me in the online lobbies — my PSN ID is OneOfSwords, and I’m the easy target!

Hey Dan can we buy the DLC separately from the Season Pass because I don’t wanna waste $50 on DLC I don’t really want. I just want the maps.

I am excited for the DLC! I was hoping it would come out on my birthday, but what’s just 13 more days. lol I love Black Ops 2 even with its lag, prestige master glitchers, rude people and all. Need some freshness to the game, because I’m already tired of the old maps. *coughs* Hijacked! ;)

Call of Duty Black Ops II is not “broken”, I have noticed that it is the system. On my PS3, the game works just fine but on my brother’s PS3, it has frozen and there is a lag from time to time but that is it. Don’t blame anybody but your own console for the difficulties you have been having.

So since I purchased the DLC and I get everything late, I will recieve a single double XP weekend to make up for over a month that I’ve already missed out on? seems pretty week. Am I going to be penalized like this on all of the content drops? Or is this going to be something that is addressed, so I can Get what I put my 60$ game and 50$ season pass into?

In reference to MK having Kratos, when Xbox did not have a bonus character.
It was a bonus feature of game purchase, It wasn’t DLC that someone payed for separately.

If I pay money to get released add-ons. then by heavens I WANT THEM.
AND, Not a month after someone with a different console.
I payed the same amount as they did. I Should not have to be penalized because someone thinks a particular console is better. Xbox, PC, PS3, ect.

This Needs to be fixed.

You know what, I love black ops 2 but I hate waiting for the maps. You guys need to fix this or forget about me buying them. I want the maps the same day as everyone else. I don’t care much for Microsoft’s game consoles anyways.

Dan, even though i have only recently fould out the date of the first new map pac, i knew it was about 30 days after the other gaming system (xbox). Cant wait BTW, thank you and keep up the tireless work keepnig us gamers informed . After playing video games for the last 40 years or so i believe taking out my daily angst in video games keeps me sane and not what the industry is saying that playing these types of games is causing the violence we see in real life….just my thoughts..thx

Hey, Dan. You know, I have read a lot of these comments and concerns. I also, Have watched your replies. But I have 1 question. Why doesn’t CoD Just drop the DLC’s Globally And over both platforms? It has always confused and frustrated me. Both Xbox and The 360 get Exclusive stuff. But why does DLC have to be on separate dates?

I Love the looks of the new maps and modes! Keep going CoD Team!
