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.

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

Aren't all Black ops 2 maps rush maps? It's heaven for smg players.

I'd get it if there were weapon or equipment dlc's beyond just 1 new gun thats only available in one mode. Map packs are stupid reskins most of the time anyway. Give me some more guns, nades, perks, and equipment to play with along with those maps and I'll be more willing to buy. BF3 made this work and released several new guns/equipment items with each dlc. The Peacekeeper smg was cool, why not more?

I find it pathetic that they take old Black Ops maps, change the background, and re-release it as a new map. What a waste of money!
