Via an article published today on Gameranx, Amazon.co.uk have let slip the Xbox 360 release date and a few details for recently-leaked Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC "Revolution." The listing has since been pulled, but the online retailer stated that the add-on content will be available for download and purchase on January 29, and will be 360-exclusive for at least a month. The PS3 and PC won't get the DLC until next month, and is priced at 1200 Microsoft Points.
Welcome to the Revolution
Revolution is the first downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, containing four of the most exciting Multiplayer maps, a thrilling new Zombies map and for the first time ever, a new weapon – The Peacekeeper SMG.
Part of Black Ops 2's Season Pass, Revolution will feature five new maps, including a zombie map, and a new weapon, dubbed the Peacekeeper SMG. The zombie map, Die Rise, will be set in China, where players will need to fight off a zombie invasion, which has turned a downtown city into an MC Escher painting. Amazon describes the other four maps:
• Hydro: This large map allows you to use the dam and water to your advantage to block paths and stop enemies.
• Downhill: A medium-sized map based in the French Alps complete with snow, chair lifts, and a strategically placed lodge.
• Grind: Set within the locale of the Venice, California boardwalk, this small skate park map is sure to deliver fast and frenetic Call of Duty action.
• Mirage: This Gobi Desert multiplayer map utilises sand dunes to provide different levels of elevation and a sanctuary in the centre as a natural chokepoint.
The Peacekeeper SMG will apparently be an "impressive sub-machine gun" which will "fill the open weapon slot in your load-out with power and accuracy." Amazon didn't list anything for the Wii, but the PC and PS3 release will be on February 28.
