‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II – Apocalypse’ DLC trailer shows off new maps, zombie action

Black Ops 2 Apocalypse

If you haven’t picked up Apocalypse – the final DLC pack for Activision and Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops II – just yet, the developer has a trailer with gameplay footage to whet your whistle for the content.

Take a look below and get your fill of battlefield action:

The video offers a glimpse of Black Ops II‘s four new multiplayer maps – “Pod,” “Frost,” “Takeoff” and “Dig.” Take a look at the official descriptions for each new arena:

  • 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 archaeological 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 pack also includes “Origins,” a new map for the ever-popular Zombie mode. Described by Treyarch as having a “dieselpunk” art-style, “Origins” features some new elements, such as a zombie tank and a massive robot on a ravaged French battlefield from World War I.

The content is available exclusively on Xbox Live (for now) for $14.99.
