Okay, I don’t mean to be that harsh, I haven’t even downloaded the DLC myself yet, partially because I’ve been spending most of my time on other games and partially because I don’t know if I want to get it yet. I haven’t been too impressed with the recent helpings of DLC from Treyarch.
Anyway, August 1 is the date you PC and PS3 Black Ops fans need to circle in your calendar as that’s the day you’ll be able to download the Vengeance DLC which includes four new multiplayer maps and a brand new Zombies experience along with the Ray Gun MK 2. Ooooo.
If you still don’t know about the DLC or are choosing to ignore everything about it until it’s release then here’s some information for you.
There’s four new maps!
- Cove: The stage is set for all-out conflict on this small, forgotten island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with players battling it out amongst the wreckage of a jet that crash-landed during a smuggling operation gone wrong
- Detour: A destroyed suspension bridge, high above an East Coast waterway, packed with scattered vehicles, exposed iron, and collapsed pavement where the head-to-head action will play out on multiple levels.
- Rush: Get ready for fast, close-quarters engagements in this paintball course turned full-combat arena, giving players new opportunities and challenges to use the cover to their advantage
- Uplink: Does this one look familiar? In this re-imagined adaptation of the fan-favourite multiplayer map “summit” from the original Black Ops, players clash deep in the rain-soaked jungles of Myanmar, high atop a hi-tech mountain facility.
There’s also a brand new Zombies experience; Buried!
Once players meet up with the four survivors of Tranzit, they’ll begin to encounter the undead residents of an abandoned underground Old West mining town. A healthy arsenal of equipment and weapons will be at the players desposal as well as the brand new Ray Gun Mark II
The Vengeance DLC will be available on PlayStation 3 and PC on August 1.
