The second Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC, Uprising, has been confirmed for an April 16th timed-exclusive launch on Xbox 360.
The content will add four new multiplayer maps and a Zombies adventure entitled Mob of the Dead.” Everything from the promo image leak earlier this week stands up, but there’s some new info packed with the official reveal as well.
Activision says "Mob of the Dead" will feature the voice acting talent of Ray Liotta, Chazz Palminteri, Joe Pantoliano and Michael Madsen. The four will play prohibition-era mobsters attempting to break out of Alcatraz – only to confront a whole bunch of undead.
The new Zombies campaign also adds a new feature called "Purgatory," which sends players killed by zombies into the afterlife.[Uprising is] the most fan-centric DLC package we’ve ever created,” Black Ops II game design director David Vonderhaar said.
Uprising will be available for 1200 MS Points ($15), or as part of the Call of Duty: Black Ops II season pass. Versions for other platforms,” as in PC and PS3, are to arrive sometime after the Xbox 360 launch.
