[Updated] Black Ops 2 Revolution DLC Detailed by Amazon UK

As we anxiously await for an official statement regarding Call of Duty’s Black Ops 2’s first content pack, Amazon UK has seemingly outed all the details, revealing everything you need to know about Revolution.

According to the Amazong UK listing, “Revolution is the first downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, containing four of the most exciting Multiplayer maps, a thrilling new Zombies map and for the first time ever, a new weapon –The Peacekeeper SMG.”

Releasing first on Xbox Live this January 29, it will include:

  • Hydro–This large map allows you to use the dam and water to your advantage to block paths and stop enemies.
  • Downhill–A medium-sized map based in the French Alps complete with snow, chair lifts, and a strategically placed lodge.
  • Grind–Set within the locale of the Venice, California boardwalk, this small skate park map is sure to deliver fast and frenetic Call of Duty action.
  • Mirage–This Gobi Desert multiplayer map utilises sand dunes to provide different levels of elevation and a sanctuary in the centre as a natural chokepoint.
  • Zombies – Die Rise–The Zombie apocalypse has invaded China, turning down town into a dilapidated and dangerous MC Escher painting.
  • Peacekeeper SMG–This impressive sub-machine gun fills the open weapon slot in your load-out with power and accuracy.

These details prove earlier reports describing the new zombie map, Die Rise, to be fake. However, it’s unclear whether Revolution will include additional achievements/trophies or not.

As expected, Amazon lists the DLC at 1200 Microsoft Points, or free for season pass holders.

HMV’s Facebook page now lists similar information regarding Black Ops 2 Revolution:

Activision have announced the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be available from January 29th*

The Revolution Pack will include five new maps and a new SMG gun with its own challenges and specs:

  • Map 1 – Mirage – A town set in the aftermath of a sandstorm with sand dunes scattered in between buildings with one structure directly in the center; perfect for sniping and creeping up on enemy players.
  • Map 2 – Downhill – A Ski Lodge in the French Alps with both an accessible interior and working Ski Lift for transport up the mountain for the perfect cover (or death trap).
  • Map 3 – Hydro – This large map is perfect for long distance killing and with working flood gates to block paths/take our enemies, could be the best map in the DLC.
  • Map 4 – Skate – This more compact map sees players use ramps and bowls for cover along the Venice, California Boardwalk.
  • Map 5 – Die Rise – A new Zombies map set atop buildings that are literally falling apart.

The pack will be available on January 29th on Xbox 360 for 1200 MS points or purchase Call of Duty Black Ops II Season Pass for 4,000 MS Points and get all Four DLC packs and SAVE 800 Points (You also get Nuketown Zombies and Exclusive Playercard).

*The Revolution Pack will be available on Sony PlayStation PS3 & PC from February 28th.

  • thebulky1cometh

    I wonder if the new maps will include colors other than shades of gray and brown? Anyways, who am I kidding, I’m very excited by this. Anyone hear the rumor that the xbox-first deal is only 2 weeks this time as opposed to a month?

    • Killasapo

      If that was the case ps3 users would have nuke town zombies by now , which they don’t 🙁
      Will just have to wait the extra 30 days

    • Confusion

      Drone has shades of green.
      Cargo has blue, yellow, and red.
      Express has white, and red.
      Plaza has blue, purple, and black
      Hijacked has pink and blue
      Standoff has blue and green

      And Nuketown 2025 has all sorts of colors

      • thebulky1cometh

        I was obviously exaggerating about the colors to make my point that these current maps are pretty bland.Think about blops1- firing range, nuketown, summit, jungle: all very unique and memorable. Which maps on blops2 are as memorable and stand out? Raid, Overflow, and maybe Cargo? (I don’t really care for Cargo but I know some people really like it)

  • Zombie fan

    Can’t wait for zombies.

  • I hope that what I have read so far about Die Rise is true. It would be pretty clutch to be able to build a headlamp that keeps those God-forsaken denizens off of you. Looking forward to a new round of EEs.


    That’s what I get for skimming and not fully reading. Part of the rumor said the map is set in Germany, but that’s obviously not true. Looks like someone made up a very elaborate lie.

  • Sounds interesting, becauae some new maps with interactive functions. Die Rise sounds fantastic and finally a gun DLC. But the description says, ‘fills your weapon slot’. Is this the only gun we’ll get in the DLC packs?

  • MWsRAGE_5

    as long they dont put a useful assault riffle other than the m8a1 w/ select fire (which it strictly must have otherwise it sucks too) . i aint buying any shit dlc. i dont give a fuck about maps nor another op smg. actually i dont even play this game that much anymore, ive been playing mag and resistance fall of man all of this winter.

  • asgaro

    Only one gun?
    Hey, don’t work too hard, Treyarch!

    • hey do you know how hard it is to hold back cut content from a game and then sell it back as DLC? its very tiring.

      • just a guy

        made me laugh 😉

    • Latch

      Do you know how hard it is to add a gun to a game like COD? With the code it can screw everything up. But you’re just an online shooter out the mouth. Don’t think before you talk.

      • dude Bo2 has less weapons then MW3…and MW3 looked better -__- the gun is so cut content from the game.

        • That Ridiculous

          Since when did MW3 look any bit better than Black ops 2??

          • …..your joking right? MW3 textures were way better then BO2 hell BO1 looks better sometimes then BO2. i think 3ARCh decided to go with gameplay and content over graphics.

            • slr p

              Your an idiot black ops 2 looks way better than mw3, you clealry must be blind

            • ……….

            • jon is a —–

              Way to up vote your own comment Hahahaha

            • haha even though you probably don’t and WON’T believe me i never upvote my comments -__- even hah ill even down vote it *puts on shades*

            • Angelreborn96

              He’s 12 years old he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Let the dumb ass kid be.

            • pete

              i’f they had gone for gameplay i would be playing right now…
              but since it freezes every game my guess is they’ve gone for total destruction of the game

            • yeah how many its what been two months and i still get freezes on PS3 -__-

            • Fuck mw3

              BS mw3,mw2 and mw1 graphics sucked ass

          • Angelreborn96

            Let him be. The kids 12 years old dude he doesn’t know crap. He’s stupid. And Bo2 textures are MUCH better than MW3, he’s a fucking dumb ass

        • Angelreborn96

          Fucking dumb ass, obviously you don’t know shit. You don’t know if shits cut from a game if u can’t even tell if the game has better textures than Mw3 wow you kid are stupid

      • asgaro

        Actually, it shouldn’t be that hard to add a gun. Otherwise that means the game is very badly coded: in a sense that modularity (= a good coding practice) isn’t present…

        But I assume the game is badly coded since they have been using the same ancient game engine that’s probably older than the average CoD gamer’s age!

      • latchsucz

        Latch you know nothing about coding stop acting like you know

  • StealthShot24

    Ive heard the Mirage is a remake of Castle from World at War. If so, that would be amazing. I love world at war, and that map was amazing!

    • They did plan for it in Black Ops 1. They called it “War Museum” back then before it was scrapped. http://mp1st.com/2011/09/03/black-ops-unreleased-map/

      • StealthShot24

        Ok thanks! I did notice the thumbnail for Mirage looks a awfully lot like castle. Maybe not, but I can always hope! 🙂

      • “No… they will save it for Black Ops 2 DLC and charge you extra for it ;)”

        …and we coming around full circle..

  • Nemesis_96

    Knew it was fake! Totally called it.

  • hm

    Damn it! I saw the supposedly leaked achievement for Die Rise that said something along the lines of “Discover The Giant” and I was hoping it was true. We never did find out what The Giant has to do with the map Der Riese.

  • I’m ashamed of myself for spending so much money on this game. $60 + $50 for season pass to get the complete game. If they release a version with everything for less, I’m done with COD.

    • I didn’t buy the season pass, because last year I got elite premium for MW3 and I didn’t even download most of the dlc!

    • John

      I’m guessing you did not pay Battlefield

      • I remember reading that that he did..

      • I did. I stopped playing when they reduced the price of BF3 + Premium.

  • vikerii

    MW3 allowed us to disable DLC while searching for matches. At first it seemed like a good idea for PC, except then I think it also helped make finding DLC matches even harder, since many ppl would just leave it disabled. Does anyone know if BO2 will allow disabling dlc for searches?

    • hm

      No… we don’t. Because no one has DLC yet to know.

    • Jim

      About a month before BO2’s release Vahn made a tweet about the matter. He said they would never implement a ‘disable dlc content’ option for the exact reason you just said 🙂

  • First CoD I won’t buy DLC from 🙁 , its a good game, but I think I’ve had enough, it was fun though , and maybe sometime I’ll pop blops 2 back in.

  • PuddingAuxRais1ns

    I’m buying this just for the weapon dlc and zombies. Other than that I don’t see myself playing the new maps.

  • Dane Curbow

    Just what we needed, another goddamn SMG…

  • WarHero

    Wonder what CoD has in stores for Next-Gen Activision still needs a plan while EA is already prepared with it’s new game engines like CryEngine 3 and Frostbite 2 which has already been used before but CoD is rumored to use U4 engine which the developers haven’t used it yet,going to be interesting who’s going to dominate the FPS market in the future.

    Add new weapons in zombies you whores! I need that Crossbow to feel like Daryl from TWD.

    why whine some people on black ops 2 I think black ops 2 is almost as good as mw2 if not better without all op explosive and death streaks I think they’ve done a good job of designing maps and weapons are pretty good balance
