5w ago - Activision Community Manager Dan Amrich announced that Black Ops II Uprising is out today alongside 4 new Mob of the Dead maps with details and a video trailer below.
To quote: How often in life do you get a second chance? If you're an online Call of Duty player, well, that's pretty simple - you get one every time you press Square to respawn.
But the concepts of return, reinvigoration, and redemption all play into Uprising, the second map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II, which is available today on PlayStation Network.
To start, Uprising features four new maps for Black Ops II multiplayer matches:
Vertigo, the top of a Tacitus mega-structure that's so tall, it breaks the cloud layer; Magma, a small Japanese village that has been engulfed by the lava of a nearby erupting volcano; Encore, the performance stage and surrounding grounds following a London music festival; and Studio, a re-imagining of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Firing Range, offering chaotic combat over several movie sets on a Hollywood backlot.
Studio is a particular point of pride here, as it's a re-imagining of Firing Range, which fans of the original Black Ops still eagerly choose in multiplayer lobbies. Its compact design and varied lines of sight - sniper perches, blind corners, tight...
68w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that two new MW3 maps are now available for Call of Duty Elite on the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Welcome to winter. It's snowing in Fargo today and the northeast is about to get some of that white stuff too. But I hear Italy is lovely this time of year.
Wouldn't you rather be seaside in some adorable little European villa? Picture it: Sitting in a small bistro, overlooking the sea, sipping something delicious...why, it's a little slice of paradise.
Then you hear the WHUPWHUPWHUP of rotors overhead, and your exquisite view is obscured by smoke from a nearby grenade.
Sorry, pal, you're not on vacation - you're in the thick of the conflict, because you're in Piazza, one of the two new Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer maps that are reaching Call of Duty Elite premium members today via the PlayStation Network. Now it's a little slice of paramilitary paradise.
Piazza is actually going to be a big hit with fans of close-quarters combat; the tiny town features several sharp corners, tight corridors, and dangerous staircases that just beg to be explored with a Striker or P90 in hand.
Is the European coast not your style? Maybe the cold doesn't bother you - maybe you prefer...
72w ago - Activision Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has confirmed today that the first MW3 Maps will be hitting PS3 Call of Duty Elite Premium Members on February 28, 2012 with details outlined below.
To quote: It's going to be a long year - and that's a good thing. While Modern Warfare 3 has occupied a lot of time in the drives of a lot of PS3 owners since its November release, there is more content to come over the next several months.
And if you're a premium member of Call of Duty Elite, you're going to get your first two tastes of that content on February 28th.
While the content season will contain more than 20 items overall - some multiplayer maps, some game modes, and some Spec Ops missions - the first two pieces of content in the season are a Call of Duty player's bread and butter: multiplayer maps.
The seaside village of Piazza is a perfect battleground for fans of close-quarters combat; the sharp corners, tight corridors, and stone staircases all offer compelling examples of why the word "paranoia" is the same in English and Italian.
Liberation offers more room to run, but it's no less deadly. Enjoy the beautiful foliage, romantic footbridges, and brutal explosions as you attack the enemy centrally located park in Manhattan. Snipers will find their perches,...
87w ago - Naughty Dog Community Strategist Eric Monacelli has shared another video in the Uncharted 3 PS3 multiplayer Advanced Tips series alongside details on new maps available today.
To quote: We are hitting the start of week three for the Subway Taste For Adventure UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer experience and we're noticing that some of you are getting pretty good.
But the best player isn't the best for long. We think it's a good time to dive into some of the more advanced multiplayer gameplay mechanics and strategies to help you step up your game.
Sure, you can lob a grenade out there, but have you mastered the aim throw yet? How many BBQ medals have you achieved? Did you know that the Idol can be used as a melee weapon?
Game Designer Robert Cogburn sat down with the PlayStation.Blog to drop some high-level knowledge regarding UNCHARTED 3's multiplayer experience. Check out our new video above for some lessons!
Starting today, we're adding a revamped map - Facility - to the experience so you can practice your new skills on this fresh level. If you were lucky enough to attend New York Comic Con, you may have already gotten a taste of this map and...
101w ago - Activision's Social Media Manager Dan Amrich has announced today that the Call of Duty: Black Ops Annihilation maps will be hitting PS3 on July 28, 2011.
To quote: First Strike was fun. Escalation rocked. But Call of Duty: Black Ops fans want more - they crave new battlegrounds and new experiences.
Black Ops developer Treyarch knows this, so they've been busy creating another fresh batch of DLC maps: Annihilation. The newest add-on content will be ready for download from the PlayStation Store starting Thursday, July 28th.
Annihilation features four new standard multiplayer arenas - Silo, Hangar 18, Drive-In and Hazard - and the deadly jungle Zombies experience, Shangri-La. "The goals we set were about quality and variety," says Treyarch's Online Director, Dan Bunting. "We wanted to make everything feel unique and distinct."
Annihilation delivers on those goals with five all-new environments:
Drive-In: This one-time American movie paradise once showed war movies; now it's the location for one. The holes in the screen have been filled with snipers. The popcorn is stale, but they're still serving up hot lead in the concession stand.
