Call of Duty: Black Ops 2's 'Uprising' DLC Adds Volcanoes, Hollywood Stars

Staging a rock concert, too

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is set to host a global uprising later this year, with the first-person shooter’s second major expansion pack. The add-on – dubbed Uprising, in case you missed it – features four new maps and a fresh “zombie adventure”. Treyarch is describing the package as the most “fan-centric” it has ever created, which has certainly piqued our attention.

Among the new arenas are Magma, Encore, Vertigo, and Studio – the latter of which is a Hollywood reimagining of Black Ops’ classic Firing Range. Each of the stages has a unique twist, be it Magma’s active volcano, or Encore’s rock concert. Vertigo, meanwhile, takes place on the top of a skyscraper in India.

In addition to the new competitive maps, you’ll also unlock a fresh undead experience which features stars Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joey Pantoliano, and Michael Madsen. The mode takes place in a zombie-infested Alcatraz, and sees deceased players transported to the afterlife. Additional details are scarce, but we’re sure that more will be revealed in the coming days.

Due to Microsoft’s exclusivity arrangement with Activision, there’s no word on when the add-on will shoot onto the PlayStation 3, but it’s reasonable to expect it to be deployed sometime in May. Are you excited for more Call of Duty content? Let us know in the comments section below.

Can somebody please explain to me the attraction of Zombie mode in Black Ops? Finishing it is all I need to platinum the first game but it is so mind numbingly tedious and not fun in the slightest. Yet there was a huge fuss about it returning in BO2, why?

Put it on the Wii U Activison/treyarch. What a pathetic company. They half-ass the Wii U version and also don't give us DLC. They have completely Ignored all Inquires on DLC.

Ugh.....Alcatraz looks like a fun zombies map.....




@rastamadeus No idea, I only even selected it by mistake once.
I watched some gameplay and it just looks like waves of enemies/survival.
Then again, I haven't played it multiplayer- which seems to be the main draw.
I must admit, after being a bit of FPS snob/hater I hadn't played CoD since the first Modern Warfare- and then, not much online.
Black Ops 2 set me straight and took me quite by surprise at how addictive the multiplater element was. It's a bit of a rarity that myself and real life friends end up playing together online (I know a lot of 360 and PC gamers), but I played mostly with 3 mates who pretty much only use their PS3s for CoD and used TeamSpeak for comms outside of the game. It was great fun, a lot more fun than Battlefield 3 was.
I would've thought, with a group of mates playing Zombies would be much like Left For Dead-also, it's just that little bit extra in the package, which is at least- added value.
