19w ago - Activision Community Manager Dan Amrich made available a video today announcing that Vengeance is here for Call of Duty: Black Ops II on PS3.
To quote: One of the reasons I keep coming back to Call of Duty is the fast action - and the action is fastest on maps that really encourage interaction.
When you know all the players are packed tightly together - when every corner you turn can lead to a high-caliber engagement - that's when the game is the most fun for me.
And I think it's why maps like Studio, Hijacked, and Nuketown 2025 are voted up so frequently in multiplayer lobbies.
The four multiplayer maps in the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC collection, Vengeance, were designed for players like me - folks who don't want to run around forever before they get someone in their sights.
That cuts both ways: I know when I get caught in someone else's sights, it won't be long before I'm back in the action. That's certainly true on Cove, which strands players on a small tropical island - a beautiful place for a vacation, if the vacation didn't look like it might last forever.
With just natural rock formations for cover, the debris of a recent plane crash, and endless ocean surrounding you on all sides, there's no avoiding...

43w ago - Activision Community Manager Dan Amrich has confirmed today that Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution DLC hits PSN on February 28, 2013.
Below are is the full scoop, to quote: As the old saying goes, "the revolution will not be televised." Nonsense - it's not only on your TV screen, but it will be interactive, too.
Revolution, the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, arrives on PlayStation Network on February 28 - and there's more inside this collection than you may be expecting.
Revolution offers a heck of a lot of content for both multiplayer and Zombies fans. First up are the four multiplayer maps:
• Hydro: Located in Pakistan, this hydro-electric plant comes complete with a lethal spillway that floods with very little warning.
• Grind: Set in a skate park in Venice Beach (the birthplace of skateboarding!), quarter-pipes and curved surfaces drive players away from easy cover and into intense firefights.
• Downhill: A ski resort in the French Alps, this snowy map is complete with a moving gondola system that can both offer cover and crush you to death.
• Mirage: Located in China's Gobi Desert, this luxury resort has been ravaged by a sandstorm.
It's worth noting that Mirage is also the first Black Ops II...
