Announced yesterday, Activision and Treyarch have released a new preview video for Call of Duty: Black Ops II's Apocalypse DLC; the game's final dose of Season Pass content that boasts four multiplayer maps and the new 'Origins' Zombies campaign. Hit the above link to find out more.

In the video, you'll get a breakdown of the four multiplayer maps - two of which have been taken and revamped from Treyarch's CoD back catalogue, World at War and the first Black Ops - and there's also a closer look at the Origins Zombies portion of the DLC. That bit includes mechs and a diesel-punk WWI set yarn, with art from Alex Ross and a tune from A7X.

You can watch the new video below for the lowdown on the upcoming expansion, set to drop first on Xbox Live on August 27th for 1200 Microsoft Points. You can also grab it as part of the Season Pass.

Multiplayer maps don't seem anything special for this "finale" they're talking about. And I'm so disappointed that the zombies is a prequel in the story. I assumed Origins simply meant going back to the original characters.

I just hope that the easter egg achievement is obtainable in 2 player coop. Trying to get 4 players to work together and do these easter eggs really sucks.

I have been a fan for years and I feel that this is a very poor way to finish the series. The level of creativity is very low by bringing back old maps and dig? Really? I love zombies and was hoping that old maps would be returning however it looks as though this is not the case. Multiplayer has become boring and I am on the fence as to be excited for this or not.

Ok... for the zombies map, the only hazard should be the zombies. I don't want to have to worry not only about staying alive from the zombies, but also from a giant fucking robot? Seriously?

And they look nothing like the original cast.

I might have gotten into zombies for longer if they hadn't overcomplicated the whole idea

Back in WaW it was awesome. A pure slog-fest. Endure, endure, endure. Not really much thought. Just the thought of Surviving one more round.

They've added so many variables that I dare not touch it. You should not have to think when playing zombies. That was the whole idea, just shoot.

@14 - Exactly! This is the main reason why I have not bought a single pack yet for BOII. I will eventually but it's not at the top of my to do list.

#14 nailed it. They should just break off Zombies into its own full release. I don't touch it in the newer games, I much preferred the early maps for it. I don't want to turn on the power, use perks or build frickin' laser fans. I just want to kill zombies without thinking too much.

Honestly I'm sick and tired of the people that keep on saying to do an all zombies map pack. I play multiplayer constantly and zombies occasionally and I bought the season pass and if they were to release a zombies only map pack included in the season pass, I think it would be a waste of money just because of the fact that zombies does get boring after a while. Build up points, get guns and perks, and then train the rest of the game. I think its great that they are doing multiplayer maps and a zombies map but like I said, to do an all zombies pack would disappoint some of the multiplayer only players.

I agree with #14, all adding these Easter eggs did was make people troll more than usual (Buried is the worst so far that I've found). The original Zombie made it (somewhat) easy for randoms or people without a lot of COD friends to play and still have fun. With these complex Easter eggs, you now have to have friends that have mics and know what they are doing.

I am curious to see how Origins plays out though. That robot looks like it will be a pain in the ass if we have to kill it while worrying about Zombies.

Also way off topic, but can no one come up with their own emblem in this game? Plus the nudity on emblems is getting ridiculous! It's not "entertaining" if I wanted to see that I would put in Call of Duty and play the Multiplayer, can we not grow up?!

Guess i'll check out the multiplayer maps, i'm about to be prestige 10 so i'm hoping to get master prestige with the double xp that comes out with this. As for zombies it looks pretty cool, I'm hyped for it. Already got 4 other people to play it with when it comes out. Not sure if anyone else is hyped but whatever

more shitty maps, thanks guys! atleast be creative rather than re-designing old maps like stadium which I didn't even like. You know what, I didn't like any black ops map pack, or mw3 map pack. I only truly enjoyed MW2 & WAW.

I wish they would sell the zombies maps separately. I get it that people still love the multiplayer and so these maps will be good for them, but I have yet to play a single map from the last map pack, and only play Buried. And I'm sure there are people who are the other way, only play mp and not zombies.

@#20 I'm hoping we won't have to fight the giant robots and they'll be forgot like a mobile die rise walking through the map that we can jump on sort of like the transit bus and if we get to the top we can control it. as for what you said about the emblems i completely agree. the people who make emblems of naked girls are immature, childish, and horny and will never get a real girl so they have to draw them on a video game. and those who make dicks are just faggots.

The zombies maps in WaW were simplistic and fun. They bumped the difficulty up in Blops 1 and added long easter eggs. In Blops 2, it was taken too far. The lava on tranzit is annoying, I always fall off the buildings in die rise, mob of the dead is confusing if you don't know where everything is, and buried was just way too confusing and hard for me. Hopefully they get it right this time, hopefully.

Glad they have re done my fave WaW map...

Not touched any of the zombies on this yet though.. BO 1's just pissed me off no end, it felt like they had taken the fun factor out of it and made it more objective based and not about the survive for as long as possible scenario...

Der Reise was pretty much Zombie Perfection for me...

@34 Try them out they are really fun, the objectives are basically the Easter eggs. They are boring so me and my friends just survive as long as we can.

The MP maps are all shit, so uncreative, atleast design new ones!

Damn, it's just an Easter egg hunt now, it W@W was still well populated and had no glitchers (calling them hackers is giving them too much credit, I'd be on that all day. And Black Ops 1 zombies was awesome as well
