The “Revolution” DLC is confirmed for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and there’s a trailer for the content after the break.
It appears that the first downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, named “Revolution”, has been leaked. There’s four new maps — Hydro, Grind, Downhill and Mirage — and a new weapon (the Peacekeeper SMG). You can check after the break for a closer look at the above image.
A report from Eurogamer has praised the visuals for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on the Wii U, but said that:
…when it comes to performance, the Wii U release has some serious issues, falling way short of the locked 60FPS goal both Infinity Ward and Treyarch aim for in their Call of Duty offerings.
In the more ambitious campaign levels, the Wii U has real issues getting close to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 levels of performance. Frame-rates are highly variable.
With the other problems in regards to Black Ops 2, it’s sounded less and less like a safe purchase. At the same time though, I have heard good things from readers and viewers, so maybe these issues aren’t super significant? It’s still something to be wary of, either way.
You can check after the break to watch a video that details the graphical differences between the Wii U and Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
IGN has updated their review for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 with a run-down of Wii U-specific features and other things you should know about this version of the game. Luckily, the GamePad integration is praised, with a specific nod to the use of the touchscreen:
You can change your class without having to bring up the start screen, for instance, or call in Scorestreaks with on-screen buttons (less than ideal in an intense situation, but it is optional), or use the GamePad as your minimap regardless of what controller you’re using.
But in terms of the multiplayer:
…hardly anyone is playing right now. I could easily find games of Team Deathmatch, but finding games in other modes or in League Play is currently nigh impossible.
Feel free to share your experiences in the comments if you’ve picked up a copy of the game. You can also check out a video version of IGN’s review after the break.
Activision has released a new trailer that provides a closer look at the Nuketown 2025 map in Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, which is a returning, and re-imagined version of the Nuketown map from the original Black Ops. You can check it out after the break.
Activision “wants” to release DLC for Black Ops 2 on the Wii U, but they’re still sorting out the details18 Comments
Rich of IGN has clarified that, while Activision wants to release downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, they’re still sorting out the details with Nintendo. But since Ubisoft isn’t struggling DLC-wise, I think it’s just a matter of time before this is sorted.
