With Call of Duty: Ghosts around the corner, Activision plans to finish releasing downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.  


Treyarch revealed a new map pack called Apocalypse, which will arrive later this month for Xbox Live.  This new DLC contains four map packs – Pod, Frost, Takeoff and Dig, with the latter two being redesigns of fan favorites Stadium and Courtyard.

In addition, a new Zombies map called Origins is also included. This was first revealed in a teaser trailer released by Treyarch yesterday, which can be seen below. This mode reintroduces the heroes from the first Zombies map (Tank, Nikolai, Takeo and Rictofen), as they head to World War I-era France to battle a new zombie horde.  There's also a giant robot involved, which you'll need to avoid at all costs – unless, of course, you like getting squashed.

“Apocalypse is Treyarch’s grand finale to Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” said Treyarch Studio Head, Mark Lamia. “It is the perfect culmination of our efforts, and fan feedback, with two all-new multiplayer maps for players to experience for the first time, and two fully reimagined fan-favorite multiplayer maps from past games – and Origins, our most epic Zombies experience to date.  Apocalypse is a DLC pack that our fans will never forget.”

The map pack will set you back $14.99, or comes free with the Season Pass.  It arrives on Xbox Live August 27th, and will release for PlayStation Network and PC at a later time.

We'll have a breakdown of the maps in this final pack in the weeks ahead.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II is available now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U.
