Have you managed to complete the main easter eggs inside Black Ops 2 zombies? If you have, there is probably nothing else to do other than try to get to the highest level possible. The good news, is that Treyarch has already confirmed that DLC zombie maps are on the way – a total of four main map packs in a new format that will replace Call of Duty Elite that was used in Modern Warfare 3.
The four map packs included in the Black Ops 2 DLC Season Pass in the space of one year, should give us four brand new zombie maps to play. Then of course, you have the addition of Nuketown zombies on top of that for anyone who didn’t get it with a pre-order bonus the first time around. After playing Tranzit for hours on end every single day though since launch, what are you expecting from Treyarch from the new content?
If Treyarch are really good at one thing, it is knowing how to mix up gameplay and provide a lot of variety compared to other maps. The maps that featured in each Black Ops DLC map packs were amazing, with each giving players different environments to explore with new features unique to that particular map.
Take the Moon map for example – how many of you expected Treyarch to take zombies over to the moon? Call of The Dead featuring celebrities and then again with Five are also perfect examples of Treyarch thinking outside of the box to give zombie fans something fresh to play with release.
Infinity Ward may have been guilty perhaps of releasing content which doesn’t offer variety in the past, but Treyarch’s zombie map pack releases have always been spot on and we rarely see any criticisms of Black Ops zombie maps ever when reviews land. There may only be one map to play at the moment, two if you have Nuketown zombies, but Green Run has been built in a way where it is going to provide gamers with hours of non stop fun.
How do you see the first Black Ops 2 zombies DLC map panning out? Will Treyarch release another map that is playable in both Tranzit and Survival, or will they stick to just Tranzit or Survival specifically? Obviously, we hope that it is another map similar in scale to Green Run, but in a completely different location.
Just to remind you, these map packs will be available individually for around 1200 Microsoft Points. You can buy them outright if you choose, or you can cough up $50 for the Black Ops 2 DLC Season Pass, which will score you all four map packs at a discounted price – a saving of about $10.
Unfortunately, the DLC Season Pass will still be associated with Microsoft’s infamous under the table agreement, which means that the four DLC map packs will land on Xbox 360 first, before arriving on other platforms an expected one month later. If you have enjoyed playing zombies on Green Run, let us know what you want to see in the next map.
Are you definitely buying the Season Pass, or are you getting the map packs individually instead?
