Revolution is the first downloadable content package available for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. It was released on January 29, 2013 for Xbox 360, and was available for purchase on February 28, 2013 on PlayStation 3 and PC.[1]

Content

Revolution includes four multiplayer maps, a Zombies co-op map, a Zombies game mode, and a weapon for multiplayer use. The multiplayer maps included in the pack are Hydro, Downhill, Grind, and Mirage, the zombie map is named Die Rise while the game mode is called Turned and the weapon is the Peacekeeper. This downloadable content pack is a first for the Call of Duty series as it adds a completely new game mode and is the first downloadable content pack to add a multiplayer weapon.

Overview

Hydro

Hydro takes place on the Indus River of Pakistan and features multiple styles of combat, mainly mid to long range combat which makes submachine guns and assault rifles a recommendation for this style of map. There is also a floodway which will eventually flood after a period of time.

Downhill

Downhill occurs in the Rhone-Alps of France, and has a snowy landscape across the length and breadth of the map. The map also features many vantage points which can be used to players' advantage such as sniping spots and flanking maneuvers.

Grind

Grind takes place in Venice Beach in California, U.S.A. The particular area of setting is in a skate park which was influenced by Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, another game published by Activision. Long range combat is most effective to the sides of the map while indoors features a close-quarters combat area. Shotguns and submachine guns are a necessity when inside the indoor skate park and on the adjacent areas of the building.

Mirage

Mirage is another multiplayer map which occurs after a cataclysmic sandstorm in the middle of the Gobi Desert, which is located in China. Treyarch stated that this map was inspired by 2K's rebooted game, Spec Ops: The Line. There are not many flanking maneuvers around the map as the only, and most notable flankable spot is climbing the sand dunes to reach the second floor of the hotel.

Die Rise

Die Rise is the co-operative zombies map featured within the downloadable content pack which pits players within two crumbling skyscrapers, attempting to fight off the undead and trying to discover what lies ahead for the four lone survivors. Many secrets can also be discovered when looking through the map such as the CDC assistant director's last radio message, another tower to activate and trying to decipher what Maxis and Richtofen want with the survivors. Through discovery, we now know that the map occurs in Shanghai, China and has been transferred through time as seen at Maxis' diary. The Green Run group return in the map, as Jimmy Zielinski references that the Tower of Babble easter egg continues from Green Run.

Turned

Turned is a game mode addition to zombies. It allows the player to become the zombie as requested prior to the community and prior to a Call of Duty: World at War trailer[2]. The human is the lone survivor and when he/she kills a zombie, the player scrolls through a 'reverse gun game' mode from the strongest weapon to the weakest weapon, the human also has an arsenal of magic weaponry such as the monkey bomb which acts as a decoy, double points, insta-kill and the nuke. The zombie, however has the same, but not the same benefiits. The game lasts six minutes, and the human receives a 'last-standing human bonus' and the player receives an additional 900 points which counts towards the end. Whoever has the most points in the end is the winner.

Peacekeeper

The Peacekeeper is the first ever additional multiplayer downloadable weapon made available for players and the first in the Call of Duty series. Dan Bunting refers to the Peacekeeper as a "hybrid between an assault rifle and an submachine gun", as it is classified as an submachine gun but has traits shared between the two, including submachine gun mobility and assault rifle range, balanced with low damage and medium fire rate.
