Call of Duty: Black Ops 2: Apocalypse Coming to XBox Live

Activision and developer Treyarch have teamed up with world-famous rock band Avenged Sevenfold and famed comic artist Alex Ross to bring the finale of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, the Apocalypse map pack. The pack will be available first on Xbox Live on August 27th and it features:

  • A new Zombies experience titled Origins
  • Two new songs from Avenged Sevenfold, “Shepherd of Fire” and “Hail to the King”, will be featured in Origins.
  • Esteemed comic artist Alex Ross has also lent his talents to Origins by providing original artwork featuring the original heroes from Zombies.

The four new maps are as follows:

  • 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-favorite “Courtyard” from Call of Duty®: World at War, where two archeological 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.”
