Call of Duty's Black Ops 2 Trailer Brings The Apocalypse

With Call of Duty: Black Ops II‘s newest and final DLC, Apocaylpse, comes a new trailer, which shows off two completely new Multiplayer maps, two-reimagined maps, and an alternate reality Dieselpunk Zombies experience that takes place in the trenches of a WWI battlefield.

The trailer can be viewed below, after details on Apocalypse’s content:


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.”

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

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.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse is set to release first on Xbox Live on August 27th, with other platforms to follow. For a closer look at Apocalypse’s layout and design, check out the Apocalypse preview video.

Born and raised in video games and "geek culture," Masoud has been bred off of fantasy worlds his entire life and doesn't see anything wrong with that. He loves RPGs (especially TRPGs), sandbox games, the sci-fi genre, dieselpunk, art deco, and anything that allows him to create. Having graduated from John Jay College with a degree in English and a minor in Creative Writing, Masoud hopes to one day pen the same novels, comics, movies, and video games he enjoys escaping into when the real world gets too boring.
