We have some good news for PS3 and PC users at last, as Activision has finally confirmed a solid release date for when Mob of the Dead zombies will be out, as part of the Black Ops 2 Uprising DLC map pack. As most of you are well aware, the new zombies map is already available on Xbox 360, and has been for almost a month as part of Microsoft’s ongoing exclusivity agreement.
We have been keeping you informed about the new features that are available within Mob of the Dead, but most importantly, details on how to solve the main easter egg that Treyarch has included in the game as usual. If you have been studying how to do it, you’ll soon be able to complete the easter egg with friends on the PS3 and PC versions.
Treyarch and Activision have announced that Uprising will be available to buy on May 16 for $14,99, although it will be free for those who are still willing to buy a season pass on PS3 and PC for $50. Aside from Mob of the Dead, the content will also include four new maps to play in multiplayer – these are Magma, Studio, Vertigo and Encore.
There will not be a free DLC weapon this time around though, unlike the Peacekeeper SMG that we saw bundled with the Revolution map pack. We’re not sure why Treyarch hasn’t included one, but let’s hope that we get another one with the next map pack in a few months time.
With celebrities back in zombies with Mob of the Dead, we wonder what Treyarch are plotting for the next zombie map. This one is set in Alcatraz prison for the very first time, so it will be interesting to see if the next zombie map brings back any of the main characters that we all know and love from previous zombie maps.
Do you have a season pass for Black Ops 2 on PS3 or PC, or do you think it is pointless considering that you have to wait a month each time while Xbox 360 players get the content first?
