At some point, the world is probably going to begin to suffer from a mental overload concerning Call of Duty titles. Even now, it's becoming fairly tough to keep track of them all across all of the various platforms. That said, it's still a premier franchise, and we doubt the wind will be taken out of the sails in the near future. For CoD loyalists who jump at the chance to see anything new, there's an official gameplay demo on YouTube that glorifies some of the new graphical elements found in Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse.
This one represents Treyarch's fourth and final DLC map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Among other things, you'll find two all-new Multiplayer Maps, two re-imagined fan-favorite Multiplayer classics, and an alternate-reality Dieselpunk Zombies experience that transports players to the undead-infested trenches of a World War I battlefield.
Here's a bit about the DLC -- it'll probably be the last bit of it that'll hold you over until CoD: Ghosts hits shelves later in the year.
Pod: A failed utopian community from the 70's has left stacks of dilapidated residential pods nestled into an abandoned cliff side. Its residents long gone, the modernist compound now hosts frenetic combat as players must run atop the pods and 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 traversal strategies to outsmart and ultimately outshoot their enemies.
Takeoff: Though marooned in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, this remote launch site is all about the close-quarters combat, combining tight corners with open spaces for combat encounters reminiscent of the multiplayer map "Stadium" from Call of Duty®: Black Ops "First Strike."
Dig: Two archeological dig sites in Afghanistan have unearthed the perfect playground for combatants eager for hectic, unceasing battle, as this re-imagining of the fan-favorite Call of Duty®: World at War map "Courtyard" delivers two major chokepoints, a wide open layout, and raised platforms.
With Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse, Treyarch reveals Origins, the most horrifying and imaginative Zombies experience yet. Players will be deployed to Dieselpunk-stylized World War I-era France where they will encounter the return of the four original heroes from the very first Zombies map, as well as hordes of zombies that have overrun trenches and fields, as well as the ruins of a mysterious and ancient location.
