Xbox 360 owners have been enjoying the new Buried zombies map on Black Ops 2 for almost two weeks, but we’re now pleased to bring you a release date for the PS3 and PC Vengeance DLC pack. Aside from the exciting Buried zombies experience with an all-new easter egg quest to complete, the pack will also come with four new multiplayer maps as usual.
Just to remind you, the Vengeance pack will come with Cove, Uplink, Rush and Detour as the multiplayer maps. We didn’t see a bonus weapon with the Uprising pack, but we’re happy to remind you that Vengeance will come with the Ray Gun Mark II weapon as a lovely extra in zombie mode.
The Ray Gun Mark II will also work with any previous Black Ops 2 zombie maps as well, not just the new Buried map. Without further ado, we can confirm that the content will release on the PlayStation Store and Steam, on August 1. The price will be $14.99 as a standalone purchase, or you will be able to get it free if you happen to have a Black Ops 2 Season Pass.
The fee is probably worth it alone just for the new zombies map, as most Xbox 360 players will probably agree after trying to solve the easter egg that Treyarch has put into the game. There shouldn’t really be any surprises any more with the month delay on PS3 and PC, as it’s a trend that also looks set to continue when the Xbox One and PS4 arrive as well at the end of the year.
Buying a Season Pass on PS3 and PC does seem a little questionable though when Microsoft and Activision strike their own little partnership to ensure that content always arrives on PS3 and PC one month later than Xbox 360. With this in mind, let us know if you will be picking up the $14.99 Vengeance DLC pack on August 1 or not.
