Black Ops 2 Uprising DLC “The Replacers” Trailer and 6 Minutes of Mob of the Dead: Behind-the-Scenes

The job of The Replacer becomes ever more difficult as the next wave of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 downloadable content makes it’s way to gamers this April 16. But, that’s okay – he has help.

On April 16, Black Ops 2‘s second DLC, Uprising, will become available to Xbox Live players first, later for PlayStation 3 and PC users. It includes four brand new multiplayer maps – Magma, Encore, Vertigo and Studio – as well as a fresh new Zombies experience Treyarch is calling Mob of the Dead.

Speaking of the dead, a 6-minute behind-the-scenes video of Treyarch’s latest and most ambitious Zombies experience was recently shown to Xbox Live players viewing the recent Call of Duty Championship events from their consoles. We’ve got the entire thing for your viewing pleasure below.

Mob of the Dead places you in the shoes of four prohibition-era mobsters, Billy Handsome (Liotta), Al “The Weasel” Arlington (Pantoliano), Salvatore “Sal” DeLuca (Palmentiri), and Michael “Finn” O’Leary (Madsen), who are serving time in Alcatraz Prison only to discover that being behind bars is the least of their problems.

According to Treyarch, your goal is to assemble a plane using parts in order to get yourself off the zombie-infested island. You’ll be spooked with “contextual music” as you fight new types of crazy zombies on top of the hoards you’re used to, but sometimes in a way you might not be so used to, thanks to the newly introduced Afterlife mode.

Pretty quickly, you’ll notice a brand new heads-up display, as well as the use of classic Civil War weaponry. You’ll also see a new type of perk: the Electric Cherry, which zaps zombies with electricity while you reload.

Pretty scarey/exciting stuff. What do you guys think so far of Treyarch’s latest Zombie creation for Black Ops 2?

  • looks pretty cool. The last map was also pretty neat

  • The Easter Egg is going to take FOREVER! Still have yet to complete the other two, but this looks interesting enough to really put some effort into finishing it.

    BF4 is coming Fall 2013.

    • BFag

      Not playing BF4, too many douche and losers like you

      • FPS_GURU

        LMFAO @ how your user name points directly at his name.

      • Battlefield Engineer

        …and that’s exactly why I don’t play Call of Duty. You little kids doing what you do best. Nothing but insults coming out of your mouth. What a pathetic community Call of Duty has.

        • Irony is ironic

          > Accuse COD players of spewing insults
          > Spews insults at COD players

          Way to represent the BF community

          • Battlefield Engineer

            There’s a large difference between what I said and what the person above me said. I wasn’t the one calling people douches, losers, and gay slurs. Nice try, though.

            • Less offensive insults are still insults, which means you still contradicted yourself.

            • Battlefield Engineer

              You could also look at it the other way and see it as a great comparison between the two communities. No matter what game you play, you’re going to have “insults” when playing online. The Battlefield community is much less offensive than the Call of Duty community. Seriously, even people on your own team will insult you for no reason. It’s seriously pathetic.

            • wut

              Right, BF players never say gay slurs. That’s why they love to nickname Cod players as “CODfags”, because they’re extremely mature.

            • Battlefield Engineer

              What are you even talking about? Nobody ever said anything like that.

        • waz up

          you call people here a little kids but you act like a baby…lol…

          • Battlefield Engineer

            I act like a baby? Care to elaborate?

        • ChessMania

          Sadly the last sentence is true. The community of Call Of Duty is starting to crumble. But don’t blame the game. Instead of people challenging themselves they decide to use the easiest weapon/perks. I blame CoD commitators for this. They inspire the community to “dropshot” and “spam grenade” (Which in fact CoD and BF held a campaign to stop) and every follows.

      • Come enjoy something better.

        When I can play COD for over 700 hours without it getting stale i will let you know. Bottom line friends who bought BF3 are still playing it daily, friends who bought black ops 2 are playing other games. Cannot argue with reality.

        • It’s your reality, not everybody else’s. That’s what the Battlefield crowd tends to forget. Experiences vary. Your “truth” may not be the same as somebody else’s so please refrain from acting like, just because it’s happening to a small group around you, that means it’s happening everywhere else.

    • Not sure why people wanted to disagree with me when I said there are more BF trolls on here than CoD trolls… eight up-votes says it all. Very rare that you see any up-votes for CoD trolls on BF articles.

      Their behavior is being reinforced by the lack discipline for their actions and the applause by their peers, so I would hope this is taken down sometime today.

      • DanDustEmOff

        It makes me laugh BF on console is garbage 30fps and they lap it up hell even fifa plays at 60 and thats just a football game how can a shooter be any good at 30

        • Battlefield Engineer

          Obviously, you’ve never played the game. It runs just fine. Besides, I’ll gladly take 30 frames over 60 frames any day when the 30 frames game has huge maps, vehicles, and destructibility.

          • DanDustEmOff

            30 fps is unplayable to me yes I have playrd the game on console and pc on the pc it is a much better game on my pc it plays at 70-90fps. How can you state that 30 fps is fine thats awful if I couldn’t get a game to play at least 60 then my hardware needs upgrading

        • LOL

          You represent the COD fan base. Only argument is BF3 on consoles is garbage. In reality BF3 on consoles may be a watered down version but is still light year ahead of COD. What are you all gonna do when BF4 releases on Next gen with 60 frames a second and 64 players. I predict a comment that goes like this. COD has better uh uh uh uh uh uh box art.

          • DanDustEmOff

            I have been playing bf on a pc with 64 man servers doing 70-90 fps for years mate its called a pc

            • Nah

              Meh i will wait for Next gen. I am sure BF looks and plays amazing on PC but the gap will close big time when next gen versions drops. Also building a PC for one game is just stupidity. When PC gets the games and exclusives that consoles get then I might build a PC but I will not hold my breath. Also if you never play BF on PC you honestly will never miss it.

            • DanDustEmOff

              You don’t build a pc for one game everything is better on pc and will continue to be even into the next gen Crysis 3 is already too powerful for next gen hardware and it
              Hasn’t even touched the shelf yet. There are also loads of pc exclusive games Planet side, arma, etc…

            • You tupid

              You are so uniformed and confused. Who plays Planet side and Arma. Crickets.

            • DanDustEmOff

              do you mean uninformed? and how am i confused? I play planet side, arma, serious sam, minecraft, Crysis and loads of other titles im not a mono gamer and there is no popluation shortage on the PC for any of these titles.

          • DanDustEmOff

            Oh and light years ahead lol if shiney things and gimics get you going then yes you are.

        • LOL

          Calls fifa a football game. You just lost all credit to your comment.

          • LOL yourself

            You realise Soccer is referred to as football in the UK, right? Typical Americans…

            • Sorry

              I did not know that. For real I learn something every day. Forget my comment then man. My bad

          • DanDustEmOff

            We invented the game you stupid yank tbe whole world calls fifa a football game its only American’s that don’t

      • Thomas Hugs Nuts

        Nobody cares what you say with your I,m the cool jock theory. Go cut your feathered wolf hair.

        • You Hug Nuts

          Watch out everyone, we got badass over here.

        • Not sure where you got the “cool jock” from, but what I’m really going for is “mature adult”. Try it sometime.

  • new wunder weapon

    at 3.34 is the new wonder weapon me thinks,

  • Storm

    I recall Alcatraz as being very eerie, and I’m excited to see how Treyarch has captured the ambiance and mood of the prison. I did stop playing Black Ops II, however I think this DLC is a good enough excuse to get back into it!

  • Jack

    Damn, I got excited when I saw Peter Stormare! Was anyone else expecting to see the likes of Scofield, Burrows, Sucre and Bagwell? Haha, great trailer though.

  • Vikerii

    Does anybody know what percent of PC players got Revolution? As these new DLCs come out, I can imagine it taking 10 minutes to find a match.

  • thebulky1cometh

    Funny trailer- very interested in Studio, other 3 will be nice just for variety.

  • Does anyone know about the reddit post? …I think that its real.

    • thebulky1cometh

      Could you elaborate/share a link?

  • kcspurplayer17

    I wonder what will happen when you build the plane to get off the island……..

  • zach

    black ops 2 zombies looked like absolute shit, until now.

    • O

      im gonna have to politely disagree. why yes the launch zombies sucked but die rise is one of the best maps in a long time.

  • zach

    i have that feeling that when you finish the plane it will fly and crash before anyone gets in.

    it would have been a better idea if you had to make a raft similar to the raft built in the legendary alcatraz escape.
    either way some british commentator will figure it out on the day it’s out on xbox and by the time you get it, that’s all your friends want to do (not even play the game, just the sidequest) and they use youtube tutorials anyway, so by the end of the day you have no fun.

  • buttfacebob545

    These Replacer videos are great

  • Just Play The Damn Game

    Sooo much douchebaggery on both bf and cod sides and less playing the game you fucking like to play. There’s a kid playing both these games… tis a shame :/ blame the parents I guess.
