Late last month, the first details of the upcoming "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" DLC "Revolution" were revealed to the world. The details were listed on a promotion poster and included four multi-player maps on top of a Zombie expansion and weapon expansion.
Today, we get our supposed "first look" into the "Die Rise" Zombie expansion pack, allegedly from a content pirate. In the description he detailed the following:
"When you select the map on the globe, it's located in central Europe. It says
"Breslau, Germany" (not sure of the exact spelling) when highlighted and is
represented by a picture of a skyscraper. When you select it you are given a few
options like in Green Run. You can either play Die Rise (the whole map) or play
in one of the smaller areas: City, Village, Nuclear Plant and Jailhouse. I'll
describe a game on Die Rise since it includes all of the areas.
In Die Rise, you start of on a hill in the middle of a field surrounded by fog.
There is a tree on the hill with Quick Revive right in front of it, and there are two
pickets around the base of the hill, one with the M14 and the other with the
Olympia. Zombies will come out of the fog and attack you. You can step foot
into the fog, but you will be attacked by Denizens. This hill is basically the
central hub of the map, all of the areas are located around it. The bus in this
map has been replaced with a wagon ride, once again piloted by T.E.D.D. except
this time wearing a farmer's outfit. The wagon will come by the hill at round 5 (I
think) and if you get onboard he will take you to one of the 4 areas that make up
the map. The wagon travels along dirt trails that run through the field. (the field
is very big by the way and I've already found some secrets in it, such as a
crashed fighter jet)
So to keep things simple I will describe one area at a time.
The title is self-explanatory, this area is a cityscape environment. There are a
few points of interest here. First and foremost is the skyscraper. This building
contains Speed Cola, a box spawn, and a few other things. The roof area is
where the PaP can be found. You can navigate the different floors with the
elevator. There are 5 or so different floors including the roof area. There is also
an unfinished building in the city which was obviously under construction when
the apocalypse occured. In there you can build the Headlamp using a hardhat
and a flashlight. Wearing it lets you see your way through the fog easier and
makes you immune to Denizens when you have it switched on. I think it also
causes more zombies to come after you but I can't say for sure. There are also
a few small buildings that don't need to be opened which have weapons in
them. Last but not least there is a small park area, which is where you'll find
another box location and Double Tap Root Beer. Something interesting here is a
toppled statue of Adolf Hitler.
This area is a simple rural village, with a windmill, a well, a few houses and
some farmland. Nothing too important here except a box location, Juggernog
and Deadshot. This place seems to be the best for running trains.
As you might guess, the main point of interest here is the power. The plant is
one of those big white tubular structures. You can head down some stairs and
open a door to get inside the underground facility. In here you'll find a box
location, Mule Kick, and the power switch itself, which thankfully doesn't need
to be built. There is also an under-construction atom bomb in the center of the
This is a small train station. It consists of a building, a train and the boarding
platform. Here you'll find Stamin-Up and Tombstone, a box location, and the
Galvaknuckles (in the train itself)."
Of course this is all speculation a rumor. To go along with the description, three achievements were included with the zombie expansion:
- I Can See Clearly Now - In Die Rise, clear all the fog.
- Don't Rock the Boat - In Die Rise, complete an entire cycle in the wagon without it being damaged.
- Anonymous! - In Die Rise, kill a zombie using only the Black Hat.
That is all the information given, so take it with a grain of salt. The "Revolution" expansion pack is set for release on January 29th, 2013. Let me know what you think about this supposed information by subscribing to me here and following me on twitter @NicholasGigante.
