Today in gaming: mark April 16, 2013 on your calendar XBOX 360 Black Ops fans. Though this information was leaked three days ago, Treyarch and Activision have officially announced the release date for the second DLC expansion to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Uprising will feature four new maps:
- Magma is a Japanese town that is undergoing a facelift thanks to the help of a friendly local volcano.
- Encore is a London-themed music festival map
- Vertigo is a labyrinth of pathways inside of a highrise tower in India
- Studio is a remake of the map Firing Range from the original black ops. I... can... not... wait for this one, as Firing Range was my favorite map from the original.
... and a new zombie mode game called Mob of the Dead -- that takes place on Alcatraz between zombies and gangsters from the 1920s. It features voice over acting from Ray Liotta (Billy Handsome), Chazz Palminteri (Salvatore“Sal” DeLuca), Joe Pantoliano (Al“The Weasel” Arlington), and Michael Madsen (Michael“Finn” O’Leary). Really cool stuff.
No word as yet about the release dates for PC. The XBOX release will cost 1200 points ($15US). I'll keep you informed and I plan to promote it on my YouTube channel, the link to which you can find in the nav bar on the right.
