Black Ops 2 Apocalypse DLC preview trailer

Treyarch has released the first gameplay footage of upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC pack Apocalypse. Announced last week, the shooter’s fourth and final add-on pack will feature two brand new multiplayer maps, two “fully reimagined fan-favourite” ones, and a fresh Zombies level called Origins.

Multiplayer map Pod is set in a failed 1970s utopian community in an abandoned cliff side in Taiwan, while Frost takes place in a snowy European location featuring a frozen canal. Takeoff is a reimagining of original Black Ops map Stadium, while Dig is an adaptation of World at War’s Courtyard. Zombies level Origins sees players taking on the undead and a 1,000-foot robot in a “Dieselpunk-stylised” World War I-era France.

The DLC will launch on Xbox 360 on August 27 priced at 1200 Microsoft Points, with PS3 and PC releases to follow about a month later. In related news, Infinity Ward plans to take the wraps of the multiplayer component of this year’s series entry, the cross-generational Call of Duty: Ghosts, at a reveal event on August 14.
