Black Ops II' first DLC leaks
A possible promotional image for the first "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" DLC titled "Revolution" leaked on the game's official forums Sunday. The image reveals four multiplayer maps along with a new Zombies map and a bonus weapon for the PS3, Xbox 360
, Wii U
and PC shooter.
The four multiplayer maps shown in the "Black Ops II: Revolution" image are Hydro, Grind, Downhill and Mirage. Hydro appears to take place at a hydroelectric dam while Grind is set at skate park. Downhill is a snowy map set at a ski resort that reminds us of the Summit map from the first "Black Ops." Lastly, Mirage appears to be set in China as there are Pagoda-type buildings in the background.

The new Zombies map is Die Rise which almost sounds like a play on words with the original Der Riese map and "high rise". The background shows buildings half-toppled over but we'll have to wait and see if that is something players get to enter or not.
Finally, the "Revoltuion" DLC adds a bonus Peacekeeper Sub-Machine Gun which is an interesting choice given the amount of complaints from the "Black Ops II" community about how the SMGs are over-powered.
No release date or price is listed on "Revolution" promotional image but we expect it to $15 (1200 MS Points) like all previous "Call of Duty" DLC packs and to release on Xbox LIVE first followed a month later by the PS3 and PC. There is still no word from Activision or Treyarch on if they are supporting DLC on the Wii U version of the game.
An image from a GameStop promotion poster indicates that the "Revolution" DLC will be released on Jan. 29. The forum post that leaked the initial image has been removed by Activision.
