Video Games: Release date announced for MOB OF THE DEAD

This is the zombie infested counterpart for the new map pack UPRISING for CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 2. Read on below for a word from Treyarch and a behind the scenes trailer.


UPRISING, the second DLC map pack for CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 2, releases first on Xbox 360 this month, April 16th, 2013. The PS3 and PC releases generally show up a month later, though this is not yet confirmed. The price is 1200 MS POINTS but if you have the Season Pass, it’s absolutely free.

The map pack consists of four new multiplayer maps, complete with achievements, no new gun this time or extra modes. The maps are VERTIGO, MAGMA, ENCORE, and STUDIO, but allow me to skip right to what we horror fans really care about. MOB OF THE DEAD is the fourth zombie map for BLACK OPS 2 and the fifteenth to the franchise in total. Much like a previous zombie map, CALL OF THE DEAD, this one features real-life actors tossed into a situation beyond their control, the situation this time being locked up in The Rock with ZOMBIES!! The four stars are Michael Madsen, Joe Pantoliano, Chazz Palminteri, and Ray Liotta. The rock is Alcatraz Prison.

From Treyarch:

Following tradition of the original Call of Duty: Black Ops fan-favorite Zombies mode “Call of the Dead,” Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising’s wildly creative new “Mob of the Dead” Zombies experience finds the four prohibition-era mobsters, Billy Handsome (Liotta), Al “The Weasel” Arlington (Pantoliano), Salvatore “Sal” DeLuca (Palmentiri), and Michael “Finn” O’Leary (Madsen) serving time in Alcatraz Prison, only to discover that being behind bars is the least of their problems. With plans to break out of Alcatraz foiled by the rise of the undead, the quartet of inmates will have to lean on their mob-derived skills with firearms, blunt instruments and improvised weaponry as they battle the zombies infesting and overrunning the island. In order to survive, players must work their way through the steel cells and aging concrete buildings while fighting off a multitude of zombified prisoners and guards trapped on the island with them. Additionally, if a player becomes an unfortunate victim, “Mob of the Dead’s” new feature known as “Purgatory” sends players into the afterlife. This new twist on Zombies gameplay is ripe with its own set of objectives, and offers fans a truly new and unique experience.
