Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution expansion is available now on Xbox 360

Don’t call it a map pack. The Revolution downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops II has more than just some new multiplayer arenas.

Activision unleashed the first add-on pack for its popular first-person modern-military shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops II today on Xbox 360 for 1,200 Genuine Microsoft Points ($14.99). Developer Treyarch titled the DLC “Revolution.” It includes four new multiplayer maps, a new Zombies mode, a new Zombies map, and a new multiplayer weapon.

If you have the $49.99 Black Ops II season pass, you can boot up the game and start downloading the content at no extra charge.

The new maps include a hydroelectric power plant in Pakistan, a skate park in California, a ski resort in the French Alps, and an oasis in the Gobi desert.

Turned, the new Zombies mode, allows players to chase after player-characters as a zombie. The expansion includes a new Zombies map called Die Rise, located in the “far east.”

Finally, Revolution adds a whole new weapon into the mix. The Peacekeeper small machine gun is a light and powerful weapon. It has a fully unlockable experience and add-on path just like any of the other guns.

Activision hasn’t said when this DLC will hit PlayStation 3 or PC, but most other add-on content in the Call of Duty series hits those platforms a month after Microsoft’s console. Expect the same with Revolution.
