After the reveal of the upcoming "Vengeance" DLC yesterday
, players, pros and zombie-fanatics have been checking their ammo, studying the DLC trailer, and loading up their verbal armoury with plenty of fresh trash talk. There's also likely to be comedic randomness for those weird and wonderful times when trying to survive against an infinite horde of zombies. Those eager for more info will be happy to know that Treyarch has released more details regarding the maps and what to expect in the upcoming DLC.
Four new multiplayer maps will be included with the upcoming DLC offering different, unique, and intense experiences and layouts from each. Check out the brief details for each map, then we can begin to plan our different styles of attack:
Starting with “Cove,” where the stage is set for all-out conflict on this small, forgotten island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with players battling it out amongst the wreckage of a jet that crash-landed during a smuggling operation gone wrong.
Next up is “Detour,” a destroyed suspension bridge, high above an East Coast waterway, packed with scattered vehicles, exposed iron and collapsed pavement where the head-to-head action will play out on multiple levels.
The third map, “Rush,” sets the stage for fast, close-quarters engagements in this paintball course turned full-combat arena, giving players new opportunities and challenges to use the cover to their advantage.
Rounding out Vengeance’s multiplayer maps is “Uplink.” In this re-imagined adaptation of the fan-favorite multiplayer map “Summit” from the original Call of Duty®: Black Ops, players clash deep in the rain-soaked jungles of Myanmar, high atop a hi-tech mountain facility.
Mark Lamia, Studio Head of Treyarch, is as confident as can be with the upcoming DLC:
When it’s difficult to see the line between playtesting and leisurely gaming around the studio, it’s a sure sign that we’ve created something fun with Vengeance. From the four multiplayer maps to our new Zombies experience, “Buried,” Vengeance continues doing what we set out to accomplish from the very beginning of development on Call of Duty: Black Ops II: pushing the boundaries of fans’ expectations.
"Buried" will see players fighting for their lives in an "abandoned underground Old West mining town". Players will be able to find and use a decent variety of weapons and equipment, but the main weapon to look for will be the almighty and all powerful Ray Gun Mark II. There are no more details on this weapon unfortunately but you can bet it will be the saviour of many zombie-slayers lives once the DLC drops. The new playable characters will also be bumping into some old ones (again for some). Does this mean we'll be seeing the likes of the Vodka-less Nikolai and all-American Dempsey again?!
The multiplayer maps and fresh zombie experience will be available to indulge in when the "Vengeance" DLC in Black Ops II
releases on July 2nd for 1200 MSP.
