Black Ops 2 Revolution map pack announced, rollout begins Jan. 29

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's Revolution DLC, a bundle of five multiplayer maps, was announced today by Activision, confirming an earlier rumor.

It will launch Jan. 29 on Xbox Live, with releases on other platforms to follow.

Revolution includes four maps for standard multiplayer action — Downhill, Grind, Hydro and Mirage — and a co-op map called Die Rise for the separate Zombies mode. It also comes with two firsts for Call of Duty DLC: a new Zombies game type called Turned that lets people play as zombies, and a new weapon, the assault rifle/submachine gun hybrid known as the Peacekeeper.

Revolution will be the first infusion of new multiplayer playgrounds for Black Ops 2; the game shipped with 14 maps, along with the Nuketown 2025 map that was exclusive to pre-order customers.

It is the first of four map packs Treyarch has planned for 2013. All four are included in the $49.99 Call of Duty Elite subscription. Non-subscribers will be able to pay $14.99 (1200 Microsoft Points) for Revolution when Activision makes it available to them; no release dates for other platforms are available yet.
