Just under a month since its debut on Xbox LIVE, the Black Ops 2 Vengeance map pack is available as of today for the Call of Duty crowd on PS3 and PC. Have fun with that.
For those who've been out of the loop, the Vengeance pack adds four new multiplayer maps and the "Buried" campaign for Zombies. Hey, why bother with the competitive multiplayer when you've got Zombies? Best thing to happen to Call of Duty in a while, if you ask me.
Anyway, the four multiplayer maps are detailed as such:
- 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: A destroyed suspension bridge, high above an East Coast waterway, packed with scattered vehicles, exposed iron and collapsed pavement where the head-to-head action will play out on multiple levels.
- Rush: Get ready 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.
As for "Buried," Zombies players will find themselves transported to the Old West as the four survivors of Tranzit. You'll encounter zombies in an abandoned mining town (nothing ever goes wrong in mining towns), plus freaking ghosts. Not to worry though, because you'll have plenty of weapons, including the new Ray Gun Mark II.
The Vengeance DLC is priced at your typical $15. Activision also announced today that six new Black Ops 2 Personalization Packs will be released to PS3 and PC on August 22 for $1.99 each. These encompass Glam, Coyote, Aqua, Pack-a-Punch, Breach, and Rogue.
Be sure to check out the previously released "Buried" trailer too, titled "Always Running" after the song by Malukah. It's pretty great.
