Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's Revolution DLC Free To Play This Weekend
Uprising may be the newest DLC to hit Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but Treyarch is offering latecomers and cheapos the chance to get a taste of the game's first DLC, Revolution. Starting Friday at 1PM EST, Revolution is free to play until Tuesday, May 28th, 1PM.
Revolution hit Xbox 360 first in late January, and was released for PS3 and PC at the end of February.
It includes four brand new multiplayer maps:
1. Grind - An abandoned, but still well-kept skatepark in Venice, CA.
2. Hydro - A large map that allows players to use a Pakistani dam and water to their advantage to block paths and stop enemies.
3. Downhill - A medium-sized map based in the French Alps complete with snow, chair lifts, and a strategically placed lodge.
4. Mirage - This Gobi Desert multiplayer map utilizes sand dunes to provide different levels of elevation and a sanctuary in the center as a natural chokepoint.
The DLC also adds an extra "Zombies" map, "Die Rise," set atop a Shanghai skyscraper, as well as "Turned," a new mode of play where players, now controlling zombies, attempt to catch and eat a lone soldier.
In addition to the maps, and zombie game mode, Revolution brings with it the first ever DLC weapon for the franchise, the Peacekeeper. A combination of Black Ops 2's multiplayer mode's most popular gun classes, SMG's and assault rifles. Combat designer Anthony Flame describes the gun as having "the lightweight design of an SMG, but with better range and accuracy at the cost of close quarters firepower. It's a great weapon for objective modes like Hardpoint, where you need to quickly get into position and cover objectives from a safe distance."
If you enjoy your free sample, the DLC is available for free for Season Pass holders, or non-members can grab it for $14.99.
