Call of Duty: Black Ops 2' Apocalypse Map Pack will make its debut on Xbox Live tomorrow morning. You can get a better look at the multiplayer's contents by watching the new gameplay trailer released today.

The Apocalypse Map Pack introduces a bizarre new zombie map called Origins. Origins is a prequel to the other undead maps we've seen to date.

"Treyarch’s deepest and most imaginative Zombies experience yet, transports players to a Dieselpunk-themed First World War, returning the four original characters!" reads the official description of the map. "Armed with an arsenal that includes Wonder Weapons that harness supernatural powers, a diesel-drone and Mark IV tank, as well a new perk machine and power-ups, our heroes will be challenged to fend off an infestation of undead that has overrun the war-ravaged French countryside and the ruins of a mysterious ancient civilization below it."

The Apocalypse Map Pack is the last Black Ops 2 DLC and Call of Duty: Ghosts won't have zombie co-op so this could be the last undead COD experience we'll see for awhile. Treyarch looks like they're throwing together every strange idea they've got rattling around in their heads with this one.

Treyarch also includes four normal competitive maps. They'll take you to several far-flung locations, including a dystopia and an archeological dig:
  • Pod: A failed utopian community from the 70's has left stacks of dilapidated residential pods nestled into an abandoned cliff side in Taiwan. Its residents long gone, the modernist compound now hosts frenetic combat as players must run atop the pods, as well as navigate their multi-tiered interiors for a strategic edge.
  • Frost: Fresh snow meets explosive gunpowder in this snow-capped European city, where the bridge over a frozen canal separates it into two sides, requiring players to employ multi-level traversal strategies to outsmart and ultimately outshoot their enemies.
  • Takeoff: Fans of "Stadium" from the original Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC will find themselves at home on "Takeoff." Marooned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this remote launch site is all about close-quarters combat, combining tight corners with open spaces for intense encounters.
  • Dig: An adaptation of the fan-favorite "Courtyard" from Call of Duty: World at War, where two archeological dig sites in Afghanistan become the perfect playground for combatants eager for hectic, unceasing confrontations. Treyarch, has retained the spirit of "Courtyard" with two major chokepoints, a wide open layout and raised platforms, but has provided fans with a fresh take on the multitude of paths.

The PS3 and PC versions of Black Ops 2 will also receive this DLC in time. The release date for those platforms hasn't been announced just yet, though.
