Black Ops 2 Uprising DLC out today – 4 new maps, Mob of the Dead zombies

Xbox 360 News

The Black Ops 2 ‘Uprising’ DLC arrives today on Xbox Live, priced 1200MSP (£10.28/€14.40/$15), or at no extra cost if you’re a Black Ops 2 Season Pass holder. The second of four scheduled Black Ops 2 map pack add-ons, Uprising contains four new maps – Magma, Encore, Vertigo, and Studio – as well as a new ‘Mob of the Dead’ zombie mode.

  • Magma: Lava carving through a modern Japanese village leaves rivers of fiery damage in its wake, providing players with dangerous terrain, compromised cover, and frenetic firefights for survival
  • Encore: Set on the grounds following a bustling London music festival, the central stage provides players with a key vantage point overlooking the close-quarters battle of the surrounding amphitheater and main tents
  • Vertigo: High above the clouds atop a mega skyscraper in India, players must battle across a VTOL landing pad and through the transportation terminal, bringing new dimensions of verticality to every battle
  • Studio: Set on a Hollywood studio backlot, players will take cover in a wide-array of classic movie sets in this reimagined adaptation on the fan-favorite multiplayer map Firing Range

In addition to the new multiplayer maps, Uprising offers a new ‘Mob of the Dead’ zombies mode, which drops players into an undead infested Alcatraz map.

And if you want some fancy themed guns to use in Black Ops 2, don’t forget that Personalization Packs are out now on Xbox Live.

Black Ops 2 Uprising is a timed exclusive on Xbox 360, but will be coming to PS3 at some point in the future.
