Black Ops II adding 'Uprising' DLC April 16?

Marketing material for second expansion for latest Call of Duty says add-on will include four maps and new Zombie offering.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II will add its second downloadable content expansion, called Uprising, on April 16. That's according to supposed Best Buy marketing material posted by a Twitter user today (via Joystiq).

According to the material, Uprising will add four new maps (Vertigo, Encore, Magma, Studio) and what appears to be a new Zombie-themed offering called "Mob of the Dead."

If true, this would follow the formula set out by Black Ops II's Revolution DLC, which featured four multiplayer maps and one Zombies mode. All Call of Duty DLC comes to Xbox 360 first, with subsequent launches for other platforms about a month later.

An Activision representative was not immediately available to comment.

i bet theres also a special gun aswell, wow so predictable, lately ive truely become a cod hater.

which is strange as ive played these games for ages now, but to me the mutiplayer is frustrating himarkers, camping, host migration crappy connection in all my game collection this would have to be one of the worst multiplayer games out there. its just a cash cow im not even sure if ill get the next one. each year there just big expansion packs really do something with the multiplayer instead of worrying about your dollars

It'll be another 4 mediocre multiplayer maps with another AMAZING zombies map.

Wow, it is amazing how many of you cry over nothing. Why are you clicking on call of duty stories if you don't like the game. Troll on!

I need Zombies as a cheap skill streak, is that too much to ask for?

As soon as I saw hitmarkers in the campaign of Black ops 2, i returned my copy. The mp mode is full of these horrible hitmarkers...EVEN ON HARDCORE!

Meanwhile, the poor Vita version gets no DLC, despite being the 2nd highest selling Vita game ever.  And yes, I know the game has problems, but some DLC might go a ways toward fixing that.

Wish they would sell the zombie maps by themselves. I like to play zombies every once in a while but have givin up on multiplayer. From the looks of that picture I'd say the next zombie map takes place at a prison, could be interesting.

Ever since Infinity Ward split COD has sucked. I can't believe people still play this crap Activision is spitting out. BLOPS MW3 and BLOPSII are all shit.

What?! No new gun?! What a rip-off!! I'm going to demand my money back for the season pass if they don't keep giving us new guns!

why do the put in a zombies map like it's an afterthought. I'm sure people would be more excited if they put out more zombies maps instead of one with 4 mediocre multiplayer maps

I didn't even buy the first one yet (BO2 map packs)  I'm saving my money for something more useful

It's about time. Why is it taking so long to get more maps out? They're probably all created already anyway.

Yet another fail on our hands, just like the last map pack. If you spit them out too fast we already know they're going to suck ass.

I blame this last release of COD on killing my gaming habit, well this and all the rehashed crap. Have not played a game in 6 months, and everything looks the same to me. Sold all my gaming systems, and my gaming PC has turned into a very expensive web surfer. I don't know how you all keep going, the market has been stale for so long.

Looks interesting, but where is the new gun? Would be weird if they did not add one because it will cost the same as the previous DLC. Hmm....

No new gun - no buy, I'm glad I didn't bought season pass.

@Dredcrumb9  Wait so you return the copy, did you get back you full amount... Because if you didn't you still end up loosing out

@jdc6305 The first Black Ops was my favorite COD since COD4, but I will agree MW3 and BO2 suck and mainly only because of the lag compensation.

@Rockie44   Wait so you just run about shooting stuff?  No wonder they camp you, your a free kill waiting to happen.  In shooter if yo want low deaths you camp of course..  WHY give away your kill?

@JLCrogue  Wait.. was new guns every Dlc part of the package?  They sure didn't say that, and if they did and lowered the dlc price more person would buy the thing..

@JLCrogue It's call of duty what did you expect. It took them this long to give you one gun. "You're asking for too much. We would have to re-balance our game." - Activision.

@Fryboy101  because more person play multiplayer matches than Zombie..

@jekyll Because it takes ideas, planning, coding, programming, (If you have good math skills)  testing it for bugs (Given to the head-starters of the community that promotes the game) and pricing, As a COD vetren player (Now retried/board of the game)  I've never experienced a bug or any unstable problems, but the spawn system is a problem. The worst I've played is Libration on MW3, but COD map are solid and playable I just don't like the price tag.

@CallMeDuraSouka Maybe youre not looking at the right place/games?  Chivalry: Medieval Warfare on PC is a masterpiece that can keep you entertained for countless amount of hours. Legend of grimrock is another fresh take at the RPG/puzzle/dungeon crawler style. Path of exile open beta is a deep online action RPG much better than D3 .

@PortalJumper93 @JLCrogue They're constantly re-balancing the game with updates anyway. They're always nerfing and buffing different guns, like how they nerfed the FAL and all of the sub machine guns. For $15 per map pack I'm not asking for too much, they're just giving out a poor excuse for their greediness and/or laziness.

@dre256x I'd like to see some proof to that comment, too bad that activsion  dosen't track zombies vs typical online maps, we'd know for sure...

@GamerOuTLaWz @CallMeDuraSouka Not to mention Bioshock Infinite that just came out which even though it is an FPS it is definitely something new and not just another rehashed FPS unlike COD and almost every other FPS out there.
