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.
