Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's fourth map pack Apocalypse will debut later this month on Xbox 360, Activision announced today. Apocalypse brings five maps, including one very nostalgic zombie experience.
The four competitive maps include two remakes from previous Call of Duty games. Here are the descriptions of the quartet:
The new Zombies map included in Apocalypse is called "Origins." This map depicts the beginning of the zombie outbreak featured in the zombie maps. Players will take on the role of four soldiers in a Dieselpunk incarnation of France during World War I. They'll battle the undead across trenches, fields and mysterious ruins. Adding to their woes is a 1,000-foot tall robot trying to kill them.
The introductory video for "Origins" will feature the song "Shepherd of Fire" from Avenged Sevenfold. "Shepherd" is a track from their upcoming album "Hail to the King." The band previously contributed a song to the Escalation Map Pack for the original Black Ops.
Apocalypse will be the final map pack released as part of Black Ops 2's Season Pass. The four map packs collectively add twenty maps to the game, four of which are for the zombie co-op mode.
The Xbox 360 release date for Apocalypse is August 27th. The map pack should land on PS3 and PC about a month later, if past DLC releases on Black Ops 2 are any indication.
