DLC for the PlayStation 3 and PC versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will come to an end on September 26 with the release of the Apocalypse map pack, Activision and Treyarch have announced.

The DLC includes four multiplayer maps, as well as 'Origins' – the all-new Zombies experience that reunites players with the original World at War heroes, and closes this chapter of the Zombies story arch.

The new multiplayer maps include:

  • Pod: A failed utopian community from the 70's has left stacks of dilapidated residential pods nestled into an abandoned cliff side in Taiwan. Its residents long gone, the modernist compound now hosts frenetic combat as players must run atop the pods, as well as navigate their multi-tiered interiors for a strategic edge.
  • Frost: Fresh snow meets explosive gunpowder in this snow-capped European city, where the bridge over a frozen canal separates it into two sides, requiring players to employ multi-level strategies as they traverse the terrain in order to outsmart, and ultimately outshoot their enemies.
  • Takeoff: Fans of "Stadium" from the original Call of Duty®: Black Ops First Strike DLC will find themselves at home on "Takeoff." Marooned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this remote launch site is all about close-quarters combat, combining tight corners with open spaces for intense encounters.
  • Dig: An adaptation of the fan-favourite "Courtyard" from Call of Duty: World at War, where two archaeological dig sites in Afghanistan become the perfect playground for combatants eager for hectic, unceasing confrontations. Treyarch, has retained the spirit of "Courtyard" with two major chokepoints and a wide open layout with raised platforms, but has also provided fans with a fresh take by including a multitude of pathways.

Apocalypse launched on Xbox 360 at the end of August.

Well said. They were sh!te.

And this is the problem with Elite, I think. It's forcing these developers into releasing four lots of DLC within a year. That's not enough time to create decent maps, and so what we get instead are re-releases of so-called 'fan favourites'. Honestly, a lick of paint won't cover the rot that's already set in. Some of the maps have been good, but in no way, shape or form is CoD + Elite worth the £80ish you have to pay to play for the year.

I bought the season pass for the 360 early this year load of rubbish, the first two map packs were O.K, nothing special but jesus those last two were horrible, no effort put in whatsoever.
