Black Ops II Vengeance DLC launching July 2

Third expansion for latest Call of Duty game arriving first on Xbox Live next month; features four maps, one Zombies environment, and new ray gun weapon.

The leak was accurate. Activision today announced that the third expansion for Call of Duty: Black Ops II is called Vengeance and will launch first on Xbox Live beginning July 2.

The downloadable content features four multiplayer maps (Cove, Detour, Rush, and Uplink) as well as a new Zombies adventure called Buried that includes a new Ray Gun Mark II weapon.

The Uplink multiplayer environment is a reimagining of the original Black Ops' Summit map.

"Vengeance addresses the community desire to have head-to-head, super-controlled gameplay," design director David Vonderhaar said. "It's pushing you. And the players who have the skill are the ones who are going to come out on top of those battles. We're coming back with a vengeance."

Vengeance is the third expansion for Black Ops II, following Revolution in January and Uprising in April. Four map packs are planned for the game in total.

No pricing was announced for Vengeance, though all DLC is included with the $50 Season Pass, and past releases sold for $15 each as individual downloads.

So sick of the Xbox getting shit a month earlier than the superior system. Release that shit at the same time already.

Just come out with the Zombies Pack already...... No one cares about regurgitated multiplayer maps.... Just if Treyarch listened to the community for once...  If they aren't going to come out with a Zombies only game, they should at least put more then one Zombies map into each map pack... Just Sayin'

Yes, because people never played summit enough the first time. What a waste of time COD is.

I'll never understand the hate towards this stuff. I don't even play it but my son does and he loves it. He enjoys all the multiplayer shooters but plays BO2 more than the others. To me the map packs are a gaming value. He gets new maps and many more hours of play and I don't end up paying $60 every couple of weeks for a new game that lasts 4 to 6 hours. It's what he enjoys and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Go play what you like if you don't care for this but those that do like it enjoy these map packs.

Hmmm.  I remember expansions packs....then came along DLC....

Call of Duty: United Offense EXPANSION - Added 3 new protagonists with 3 different nations across 10+ levels for single player campaign---multiplayer added new weapons, new, larger maps, new vehicles....

Call of Duty 2 - The dreaded beginning of the map packs

Call of Duty 3 - More map packs...

Call of Duty:BLOPS2: Revolution / Uprising / Vengeance Map packs

Who in the hell pays $14.99 for a few new maps and maybe a weapon?   Activision is looking at making m money in the short term but in the long term people aren't going to buy their stupid games.

First off, that ray gun looks kinda cool. Second, remakes of maps are cool, but you can't just keep repainting maps because you are lazy. I do like how rush is a paintball arena though.

I'm only excited for the Zombies map, and the fact they added a new ray gun is awesome.  I also like the Western style for the map, I don't like they're using the same annoying characters from Tranzit. Was hoping they would get more talent to voice some authentic characters

The douchebags at Activision saw the success that was the "Blood Dragon" DLC for Far Cry 3 and now they feel like they could do the same, what a POS.

Call of Lame: Lag Ops 2

More pointless dlc with rehashed maps. Now you can fight in a paintball room. Ohh boy.. I can hardly contain my excitement.

Coming Soon - Call of Lame: Ghosts - now we add a dog and some masks with skulls on them. Hurry up and pre-order your next $60 map pack. COD Ghosts got the raspberry award at E3. LOL

@twisted_outlaw They should have made a "all retro" pack, with Nuketown, Firing Range, Summit, and whatever their gonna release on the next one in one bundle.

@ewjiml Couldn't agree with you more.  The game itself ends up costing over $100 if you end up buying everything.... I remember back on the PS2 when you paid $20 for a new game that had around +10 hours of campaign and replay ability like crazy.... How ever, now with DLC companies leave out content that SHOULD already be included...

@Fryboy101 Yeah those characters are lame. The characters from mob of the dead were much better. Hopefully they bring back some of the original characters for the last map.

@mikajoakkinen Stupid, stupid response. Treyarch have been doing these types of DLC's, long, long before Blood Dragon.

@XxTheEvilxX A lot of people play the game and buy the DLC because of zombies. You probably come on here and talk shit everytime there is anything posted about COD. It's really starting to become pitiful.

@XxTheEvilxX Very clever. 

How long did it take you to come up with that?

@LonelyHippie27 @Dasim64 Yea I would if that's what he did. He actually hates campers. The only time he does camp at all is when he's about to get streaks and he's playing it safe. Other than that he's all over the map.

@beuneus12 @Dasim64 Not at all. My son's 13. He's right behind me in my gaming rig and I play on the 360 on my PC monitor right next to him. We're both gamers and have been gaming since he was very small. I've been gaming since I was a teenager and it's the life that makes me happiest. The way I see it is he's right here and not out getting into trouble. His grades are great in school and we do other things together like skateboarding and bike riding. So before you imply things maybe you should take the time to learn a little bit about the people you are attempting to insult.
