PS3 and PC to get Black Ops 2 ‘Uprising’ DLC for May 16th

PS3 fans of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s will be happy as they will be getting the latest DLC package and map pack “Uprising” on May the 16th of next month after the DLC was released for the Microsoft Xbox 360 last week.

PC and PS3 games will be able to download the pack second DLC map pack for Black Ops 2 and it contains four multiplayer maps (Magma, Encore, Vertigo and Studio) plus new gameplay mode “Mob of the Dead” which is a prohibition era gangsters-fighting-zombies spin-off starring Ray Liotta, Michael Madsen, Chazz Palminteri and Joe Pantoliano.

The Map packs will be landing on the PSN and the PC store from the 16th of May.

Activision and Treyarch look set to drop another DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 fans, with pictures of promotional material popping up early to tell us that the ‘Uprising’ download is coming.

By the looks of the poster above, Uprising will add five new maps to the game; Vertigo, Encore, Magma, Studio and Mob of the Dead. That last one will probably strike a chord with most – new Zombies level!

Mob of the Dead is a new Zombies map and is set on the Alcatraz island in the San Francisco bay. Further information about the map reveals that “top Hollywood talent” will play a part – perhaps a film star will be voicing one of the characters, or will in fact have a character based on them. As for who that will be, we don’t yet know, but in the past Activision has brought in the likes of Danny Trejo and Sarah Michelle Gellar. Our bet is on a character from the current smash hit series The Walking Dead.

Asides from Mob of the Dead the DLC pack will also feature Studio, which is a remake of Firing Range from the original Black Ops title – a personal favourite of this Gadget Helpline blogger!

As has become the trend, the Uprising DLC pack will be an exclusive to Xbox 360 gamers as of April 16th. It will become available on PC and PS3 at a later date, which as yet hasn’t been revealed.
