Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse DLC (PS3/PC)

Apocalypse is the fourth and final DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. It includes four multiplayer maps and Origins, a new Zombies experience that reunites players with the original heroes from Call of Duty: World at War.


  • Dig: An adaptation of Courtyard from Call of Duty: World at War, where two archeological dig sites in Afghanistan set the stage for hectic, ruthless confrontations. The spirit of Courtyard has been retained with two major chokepoints and an open layout with raised platforms, but it also provides a fresh take by including many pathways.
  • Frost: In this snow-capped European city, the bridge over a frozen canal divides it into two sides. Players must employ multilevel strategies to outsmart and outshoot their enemies.
  • Pod: A failed utopian community from the '70s has left rundown residential pods nestled in an abandoned cliffside in Taiwan. The compound hosts frenetic combat as players run atop the pods and navigate the multi-tiered interiors.
  • Takeoff: Fans of Stadium from the Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC will love Takeoff. This remote launch site is located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, and it's all about close-quarters combat and intense encounters.

In Origins, players are deployed to a Dieselpunk-stylized World War I-era France. The four original heroes — Tank, Nikolai, Takeo, and Richtofen — return from the first Zombies map in Call of Duty: World at War. Hordes of zombies have overrun the French countryside's trenches, fields, and ruins.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Apocalypse is available a la carte for an MSRP of $14.99. Players who have purchased the Season Pass can download Apocalypse now.
