Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 'Mob of the Dead' video takes us behind the scenes to Alcatraz

Treyarch has released a new video shedding light on the development of the "Mob of the Dead" Zombies map for its upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 2: Uprising DLC.

Set during the Prohibition era, "Mob of the Dead" stars four gangsters incarcerated on San Francisco's infamous prison island Alcatraz who find themselves trapped in the middle of a zombie uprising and must complete objectives and side missions in order to escape. The video discusses how the development team sought character actors like Ray Liotta and Michael Madsen to bring life to the playable quartet.

"Mob of the Dead" also introduces a new afterlife mode players enter after dying. While in the afterlife, players can interact with zombies and the environment in order to solve puzzles.

Black Ops 2: Uprising is scheduled to hit Xbox Live on April 16.
