Santa Monica, CA – July 2, 2013 – Call of Duty?: Black Ops II Vengeance, the newest downloadable content (DLC) pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is available now, on the Xbox Live? online entertainment network from Microsoft. The record setting title from Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI), and its award-winning studio Treyarch, adds its third DLC pack,Vengeance, to its already action-packed season of downloadable content. Call of Duty: Black Ops II Vengeance delivers four new, diverse multiplayer maps that will challenge even the most seasoned players:
- “Cove,” – The stage is set for all-out conflict on this small, forgotten island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with players battling it out amongst the wreckage of a jet that crash-landed during a smuggling operation gone wrong.
- “Detour,” – The action plays out atop a destroyed suspension bridge, high above an East Coast waterway, packed with scattered vehicles, exposed iron and collapsed pavement enables head-to-head action playing out on multiple levels.
- “Rush,” – Prepare for fast, close-quarters engagements in this paintball course turned full-combat arena, giving players new opportunities and challenges to use the cover to their advantage.
- “Uplink,”- In this re-imagined adaptation of the fan-favorite multiplayer map “Summit” from the original Call of Duty?: Black Ops, players clash deep in the rain-soaked jungles of Myanmar, high atop a hi-tech mountain facility.
With “Buried,” Treyarch yet again expands the canon of Zombies fiction in brain-twisting ways. Players meet up with old characters and will encounter new ones as they face off against the undead residents of an abandoned underground Old West mining town. A healthy arsenal of equipment and weapons that will be at players’ disposal, but with one very special addition – something so powerful it will also appear in all otherCall of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies maps (with the purchase of Vengeance DLC): the Ray Gun Mark II.
