Next Tuesday sees the release of "Revolution", the first piece of DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. To get players in the mood for the incoming content, Treyarch has announced a Double XP weekend that starts tomorrow.

As shown above, the weekend starts at 10AM PST on January 25th and lasts until 10AM PST on January 28th. This gives players 72 hours to gather XP to be able to Prestige once in multiplayer matches and enter the Penthouse if you haven't done so already.

Treyarch are encouraging players to get their Replacers ready. In case you don't know what this means, it relates to the trailer released on Tuesday that was supposed to be advertising the DLC. As funny as the trailer is, don't blink or you may miss the 19 seconds of gameplay footage.



The "Revolution" DLC map pack is due to be released on January 29th and will cost 1200 MSP. Season Pass holders will be able to download the map pack in-game for no extra cost.

Thanks to the community members who sent this one in!
