Most of us around here don’t care so much for the Black Ops games themselves. But if you’re talking zombies mode, I’m in. I think Treyarch would benefit from at least making the zombies mode available as a cheaper standalone game. Maybe something we could get on Xbox Live or the Playstation Network. Coming April 16th exclusively to the Xbox 360 (Until later released elsewhere) is the Uprising Map Pack. You get four new regular multiplayer maps and one new zombie map called Mob Of The Dead. Head past the break for more map info and a video.
Staying the the same vein as Call Of The Dead from the original Black Ops, Mob Of The Dead also introduces four celebrity all stars. Billy Handsome (Ray Liotta), Al “The Weasel” Arlington (Joe Pantoliano), Salvatore “Sal” DeLuca (Chaz Palmentiri), and Michael “Finn” O’Leary (Michael Madsen) are attempting to escape from Alcatraz but are thwarted by, you guessed it, zombies. There will also be a new feature added called “Purgatory”. Not exactly sure what it is, but when your player dies he goes to the afterlife where you have a new set of objectives.
Uprising also delivers another four new, exotic and diverse multiplayer maps set around the globe for fans to jump into. “Magma” is a modern Japanese village with volcanic eruptions carving multiple paths throughout the town. “Encore” takes place in the aftermath of a deserted London music festival and leaves numerous opportunities for run-and-gun, close quarters combat. “Vertigo” is a futuristic high rise in India housing a high-tech lab featuring dizzying vistas and multi-tiered pathways. Finally, “Studio” is a contemporary remake of “Firing Range,” a fan-favourite multiplayer map from the original Call of Duty®: Black Ops. “Studio” is a Hollywood movie back lot with a variety of cinematic themes that range from Sci-Fi to the Old West.
The Uprising Map Pack will cost the usual 1200 Microsoft Severed Heads, or $15.00.
