We're less than a week away from the January 29th release of Revolution, the first DLC Map Pack for Black Ops 2. To get you ready for the action that's to come, we're hosting a Double XP weekend, beginning on Friday, January 25 (10am/PST) and running through Monday, January 28 (10am/PST). Whether you're an Xbox 360, PS3, PC or Wii player, warm-up your skills, all while earning twice the amount of XP.

 

Of course, you'll need to free up some time to earn all of that Double XP, so you should think about calling in your own Replacer. Start making your arrangements now because the next few days will be busy: Double XP, a ton of new DLC...

Yeah, you're going to need an extra set of hands.

The_Replacer

The Revolution DLC Map Pack will take up a lot of your time soon. Luckily, the Replacer is here to solve all of your problems.

 

One of the most robust and diverse DLC offerings in Call of Duty history, Revolution includes four all-new Multiplayer maps, a new Zombies Co-Op map, a brand new Zombies game mode and a bonus Multiplayer weapon. http://www.callofduty.com/blackops2/dlc/dlc1-revolution

http://www.callofduty.com/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/blackops2/cod-bo2/screenshots/DLC%201_Key_Art_retail_banner_1686x674.png

 

Shake up your Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 experience with Revolution, the first massive DLC Map Pack that includes four all-new Multiplayer maps, a new Zombies map and Zombies game mode, and a brand new Multiplayer weapon.

 

Revolution includes four Multiplayer maps diverse in both setting and playstyle: fight for control in “Mirage,” a sand-swept luxury resort in the Gobi Desert; navigate through half-pipes and skate ramps in “Grind,” battling within a massive skate park in California’s Venice Beach; dodge the floodwaters in “Hydro” to hold down a hydroelectric dam in Pakistan; and take the fight to a French Alps ski resort in “Downhill.”

 

 

For the first time in franchise history, Revolution introduces a brand new Multiplayer weapon, the “Peacekeeper” hybrid SMG-Assault Rifle. Complete with its own set of XP-earning challenges, this unique weapon is available exclusively to those that pick up the Revolution content pack.

 

Zombies are about to be taken to new heights, as the undead threat goes vertical in “Die Rise.” Moving along a series of collapsed skyscrapers, players must watch their step when fighting through the maze-like terrain. With brand new buildables and Wonder Weaponry though, players will be well-armed for this Zombies experience.

 

Also included with Revolution is the brand-new Zombies game mode “Turned,” where players can finally compete against each other as a zombie! In “Turned,” a lone human player fights for survival and points against a field of zombie players. The first zombie to hunt the human down earns the right to spawn in as the new human!

 

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Revolution content pack arrives first on Xbox LIVE on January 29th for 1200 Microsoft Points and will follow on other platforms at a later date.

 

Revolution is also available through the Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 DLC Season Pass, allowing fans to receive four epic DLC Map Packs at a discounted price. Buy the Season Pass now to receive the Nuketown Zombies bonus map and an exclusive in-game calling card!

Before you face off against these guys online, take a look at each of their load outs - you might pick up a tip or two!

http://www.callofduty.com/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/blackops2/cod-bo2/screenshots/Pick10_Miles.jpg

Miles Leslie

Producer, Treyarch

I’m all about maintaining a high K/D. I’ll play any game mode, but my main objective in any mode is getting the most frags. Some would call me a Slayer, I just think it’s part of my job to roll the other team. Each of the people I play with has a pretty solidified roll, and mine is to rack up kills and earn Scorestreaks – aka supporting my team by ensuring the enemy team is always respawning. My class is all about having high mobility to flank and get through enemy lines, as well as being able to take down 2 to 3 enemies at a time or in a row – this is why I use the EVO with extended clip and laser sight. Busting into a room and being able to ADS or hipfire down several enemies before having to reload is key. And since I am always on the go and putting so many shots on targets, I roll with Scavenger to ensure I have enough ammo in my clip. To top it all off, I like to roll with Hardline so I can constantly be earning Scorestreaks, supporting my team.

 

http://www.callofduty.com/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/blackops2/cod-bo2/screenshots/Pick10_Geoffrey.jpg

Geoffrey Ng

Associate Artist, Treyarch

I’m more of a K/D player than someone who plays to the objective – it’s just my style. My perks keep me mobile and fast: I can be accurate when I hip fire and aim down my sights with my primary, and stay silent when I need to when I use my pistol. My lethal and tactical equipment are just bonuses for me.

 

http://www.callofduty.com/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/blackops2/cod-bo2/screenshots/Pick10_MattScronce.png

Matt Scronce

Associate Game Designer

The team I play with tends to roll Domination quite a bit, so I’ve tailored a class specifically for capturing Domination points that works really well with my play style.  This class allows me to quickly make it to a point with Extreme Conditioning, lay some suppressive fire with my Mk 48 under smoke, all while being protected from any incoming projectiles thanks to the x2 Trophy System.  I also throw in Flak Jacket for any incoming explosives and Fast Hands to get my Smoke Grenade and Trophy Systems out as fast as possible.

 

http://www.callofduty.com/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/blackops2/cod-bo2/screenshots/Pick10_Caleb.jpg

Caleb Turner

Associate Artist

I love to load out with the Swat-556 because in my hands, it’s an extremely deadly and versatile weapon in both close-quarter and long-range engagements. The attachments give me more control and compliment the abilities my chosen perks provide. Flak Jacket helps to protect me from all of the chaotic explosions on the battlefield, while Ghost keeps me hidden out of view from any UAVs above. Fast Hands allows me to deploy my Tactical Insertion quickly behind enemy lines and toss away my Semtex with ample time to get back on target with deadly precision. I’ve got a predatory playstyle, so I like to equip Dexterity, because I frequently change positions to situate myself on higher ground with the ease of acquiring targets quickly after sprinting.

  http://www.callofduty.com/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/blackops2/cod-bo2/screenshots/Pick10_ThomasSchneider.jpg

 

Thomas Schneider

Level Designer, Treyarch

I personally use 4-5 different load outs depending on the map and game mode, but this one is my main go-to for my play style. I feel it offers me an all-around versatility, making it pretty safe to use in most situations and modes. I have additional survivability with Flak Jacket when playing defensively, Extreme Conditioning lets me move faster from objective to objective when I’m on the attack, and Hardline gives me some extra help to make sure I’m obtaining my higher Scorestreaks when a high K/D is my strategy – perfect for my style of play.

 

http://www.callofduty.com/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/blackops2/cod-bo2/screenshots/Pick10_AnthonyFlame.png

 

Anthony Flame

Game Designer

With the SCAR as my primary, I have consistent all-around damage capabilities, with solid penetration, and can win most gunfights as long as I can control my recoil.  Stock will make me harder to hit while strafing, and silencer will make me harder to find.  FHJ and EMP allow me to pick up extra score against enemy equipment and Scorestreaks.  With claymore and scavenger, I can keep a consistent eye on my back to avoid being flanked.  Flak jacket allows me to survive well placed grenades, nearby Scorestreak explosions, and the adaptability to go for an objective when necessary.

http://www.callofduty.com/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/blackops2/cod-bo2/screenshots/Pick10_Bunting.png

 

Dan Bunting

Director/Online, Treyarch

This is a class designed for objective game modes playing in a midfield position. I’m a naturally aggressive player (i.e., I kill but also get killed a lot), so I try to temper my aggressive tendencies with a counter-balance of pushing ahead in the field then holding a forward defensive position. This class supports medium- to long-range engagements with a high-power assault rifle, which is loaded out for attachments to support firing from ADS. The perks and tacticals are designed to seek out and destroy enemy defenses and Scorestreak rewards on the ground so that my teammates can push into objective locations and the enemy’s base of operations. Blind Eye allows me to hold my position at all times, even when the sky is filled with enemy aircraft.

 

Catch the livestream on Friday, December 14 from noon-2pm PST on the Treyarch YouTube page (http://www.youtube.com/user/Treyarch). The devs will be inviting fans to party up, so tune in and learn how you can join in the action!

Some uninvited guests have arrived in the neighborhood. Fend off the undead horde in the ruins of Nuketown. Purchase the Season Pass and get the Nuketown Zombies bonus map. Available now on Xbox 360 with other platforms to follow. http://www.callofduty.com/blackops2/seasonpass

http://www.callofduty.com/content/dam/atvi/callofduty/blackops2/cod-bo2/video-gallery/Leagues-Series-Generic-Neutral-banner-resized.jpg

League Play is a new feature introduced by Call of Duty®: Black Ops 2 that allows you to compete against similarly skilled opponents as a solo competitor or as a league team. Leagues are broken up into individual Series with different rulesets. Placement matches at the start of each Series determine your skill level by matching you against a spectrum of skilled teams.

 

Your performance in the placement matches grants a hidden skill level that determines your Division placement. You are placed within a Subdivision of that Division, and compete for Ladder Rank in the Subdivision Ladders. Winning a match earns you Ladder Points that help you climb the ladder, while losing a match results in lost Ladder Points. Your goal is to finish with the best rank by the end of the league season.

 

Let’s take a closer look at some League Play concepts:

 

Series

 

Leagues are played in Series, each with its own rulesets and game types. Initially, there will be three Series. Your rank is specific to each one, so if you play in both, you will establish a separate rank for each Series.

 

Champions Series

A mix of objective game modes that use competitive rules.

Format: 4v4

Ranks: Team and Solo

Special Rules: 3rd person spectating disabled. No Care Package. No Tactical Insertions. No SMAW, RPG or Grenade Launcher Attachments.

 

Moshpit Series

A mix of objective game modes that use standard rules.

Format: 6v6

Ranks: Solo

 

Team Deathmatch Series

Team Deathmatch using standard rules.

Format: 6v6

Ranks: Solo

 

Divisions

 

There are six divisions that reflect the approximate skill distribution of the active population in a Series.

 

Masters: top 2% of the active population.

Platinum: next 18%.

Gold: next 20%.

Silver: next 20%.

Bronze: next 20%.

Bronze: bottom 20%.

 

You will start in a Division based on your hidden skill rating determined by placement matches. As you play, if you win enough you may be promoted to a higher Division.

Bonus Pool

 

A weekly Bonus Pool is awarded to you for the first few wins of every week. This is in addition to the Ladder Points earned for those wins. The weekly bonus is reset on Sundays at 12AM PST. Earning the Bonus Pool every week adds a big boost to your ranking in the ladder.

 

Standings

 

At the end of the Season you may visit the team or solo homepage in game to view the final standings for your ladders. Your highest career Division rank will be displayed in your team or solo homepage and your all-time career best Division rank will be shown in your global playercard.

 

When the next season starts you will complete placement matches again to re-establish a Division rank.
