Black Ops 2 Die Rise zombie feature teases new tactics

Are you ready for the first DLC pack for Black Ops 2? Revolution is the first of four map packs for the game and for Xbox 360 Season Pass owners next week, there will be four new multiplayer maps and a new zombie map called Die Rise to play. Activision has released a new celebrity themed trailer to coincide with the upcoming release, but we’ve spotted that there’s a hidden new zombie feature thrown in there as well.

You can always count on Treyarch to add exciting new features for every fresh zombie map they release, and Die Rise will be no different. We’ve already confirmed to you that there will be new wonder weapons to find and new buildable items in TranZit mode, but now it looks like Treyarch will be shaking up zombie tactics once again.

Watch the new video below, featuring Swedish actor Peter Stormare and specifically stop the video at the 2:18 mark. You’ll see a Speed Cola perk machine going up an elevator shaft and there’s no doubt that Treyarch put this little teaser in on purpose to hint of a new feature.

It looks like players will now have to complete certain tasks to get the elevator moving so you can get your Speed Cola fix and reload faster as you take on hordes of zombies. Speculation has begun on whether all the perk machines in Die Rise will be attached to elevators, or if the Speed Cola machine is a special case. Looking at the video, we wouldn’t be surprised if Treyarch puts the Speed Cola perk machine in a zombie hot spot, with players on both ends of the elevator entrance having to protect the player who wishes to use the machine so they don’t get overrun.

Either way, it is going to be an interesting mix up to the way the game is played, but we’re sure tactics will have to come into it before being able to actually use the machine. Maybe Juggernog will be moveable via elevators as well – what are your thoughts on this?

What other new features would you like Treyarch to put into Die Rise zombies?
