Activision have announced the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be available from January 29th*

The Revolution Pack will include five new maps and a new SMG gun with its own challenges and specs:

Map 1 – Mirage – A town set in the aftermath of a sandstorm with sand dunes scattered in between buildings with one structure directly in the center; perfect for sniping and creeping up on enemy players.

Map 2 – Downhill – A Ski Lodge in the French Alps with both an accessible interior and working Ski Lift for transport up the mountain for the perfect cover (or death trap).

Map 3 – Hydro – This large map is perfect for long distance killing and with working flood gates to block paths/take our enemies, could be the best map in the DLC.

Map 4 – Skate – This more compact map sees players use ramps and bowls for cover along the Venice, California Boardwalk.

Map 5 – Die Rise – A new Zombies map set atop buildings that are literally falling apart.

The pack will be available on January 29th on Xbox 360 for 1200 MS points or purchase Call of Duty Black Ops II Season Pass for 4,000 MS Points and get all Four DLC packs and SAVE 800 Points

    “…a dilapidated and dangerous MC Escher painting.” wtf…. I’ve been doing a little wiki research, and M.C Escher is the guy who invented those ‘impossible structures’ (like those triangles that seem to climbing up), and some other stuff. Interestingly, one of his works is a woodcut with the title “Tower of Babel”. aka the name of the green run easter egg. The picture shows the tower from a top down perspecitve. Escher quotes: “Seeing as the climax of the drama takes place at the summit of the tower which is under construction, the building has been shown from above as though from a bird’s eye view.”

    With that in mind, Die Rise- at least part of it takes place downtown in some Chinese city. From the leaked artwork, we know that there will be some tall buildings (probably a high rise- hence the name die rise.). If I had to take a guess, the top of one of these buildings is probably heavily related to the Die Rise easter egg.

    Yeah, I’m exited :)
