Join the Uprising in CoD: Black Ops II [UPDATE]

By Rebecca Smith, 5 years ago
Edit: The DLC achievements have now been added to There are ten new achievements worth a total of 250G. Those of you who waited to play this DLC can now do so without any problems. Those of you who had already unlocked some of the achievements before they were added properly will have to recover your profile and re-earn the achievements for them to count towards your total.

Original Story:

Call of Duty: Black Ops II players fall into one of two camps -- those who love the multiplayer or those who love the zombies. Today's "Uprising" DLC should suit both lots of players as we get four new multiplayer maps and a new zombie game mode.

Season Pass owners should NOT purchase here and instead download in-game. Call of Duty®: Black Ops II Uprising includes four incredibly diverse Multiplayer Maps: Magma, Encore, Vertigo, and Studio: a reimagined adaptation of the fan-favorite Black Ops multiplayer map Firing Range. Uprising also introduces Mob of the Dead, Treyarch's most terrifying Zombies experience to date. Top Hollywood talent rounds out a cast of four Prohibition-era gangsters that are forced to fend off hordes of the undead while imprisoned on San Francisco's notorious Alcatraz Island. While guard towers and new weapons offer tactical advantages, survival offers an unprecedented new challenge for these four lost souls.
The DLC adds ten achievements for an unknown amount of gamerscore. We can't be certain on the gamerscore total as the achievements have not yet added to Those of you who unlock the achievements now will notice that they are not being added to your gamerscore or achievement total. I would advise gamers not to play the DLC before the achievements are added correctly. Unfortunately, those of you who unlock the achievements beforehand will have to recover your gamertag and then earn the achievements again for them to be added to your gamerscore.

Those of you who would like a sneak peek at the DLC before its release may want to check out the Mob of the Dead trailers, or this developer diary showcasing some footage from the multiplayer maps.

"Call of Duty®: Black Ops II Uprising" costs 1200 MSP and can be downloaded from here. Season Pass holders can download the content in-game for no extra cost.
