Black Ops 2: Revolution coming on the 29th of January

So our inside source promised us yesterday that the Black Ops 2: Revolution announcement was going to be made yesterday.. and it wasn’t. The source has been severely punished with no free beers or wine at our next meeting.

that said, we’re pretty thankful HMV didn’t get the memo about the delayed announcement and posted on their Facebook page the following clear confirmation

Activision have announced the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be available from January 29th*

The Revolution Pack will include five new maps and a new SMG gun with its own challenges and specs:

Map 1 – Mirage – A town set in the aftermath of a sandstorm with sand dunes scattered in between buildings with one structure directly in the center; perfect for sniping and creeping up on enemy players.

Map 2 – Downhill – A Ski Lodge in the French Alps with both an accessible interior and working Ski Lift for transport up the mountain for the perfect cover (or death trap).

Map 3 – Hydro – This large map is perfect for long distance killing and with working flood gates to block paths/take our enemies, could be the best map in the DLC.

Map 4 – Skate – This more compact map sees players use ramps and bowls for cover along the Venice, California Boardwalk.

Map 5 – Die Rise – A new Zombies map set atop buildings that are literally falling apart.
The pack will be available on January 29th on Xbox 360 for 1200 MS points or purchase Call of Duty Black Ops II Season Pass for 4,000 MS Points and get all Four DLC packs and SAVE 800 Points

(You also get Nuketown Zombies and Exclusive Playercard).
*The Revolution Pack will be available on Sony PlayStation PS3 & PC from February 28th.

So the key take aways from that are that it is coming to the Xbox one month before the PS3 and PC, it will cost $15 on the PS3 and 1200 points on the Xbox 360. So besides the date and price we pretty much had everything down perfectly. Hopefully we get a video soon and then we can move onto postulating about the next DLC after this one.
