Black Ops 2 DLC Lets You Be a Zombie; Trailer’s Kinda Sexist
The next DLC pack to hit Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is on its way, and it’s called “Revolution.” I guess that’s because of Cordis Die, the game’s Occupy-like populist movement of uppity poor people. Time for you to put those folks down, soldier.
Anyway, that’s neither here nor there. Much more relevant is what’s coming in the DLC pack: four new multiplayer maps, for a start, plus a new gun. More notably awesome, though, is the ability to play as a zombie, which is a first for Treyarch’s Call of Duty titles. That’s probably worth the price of admission on its own, really.
Below you’ll find Activision’s trailer for the new DLC, which stars the brilliant Peter Stormare (Minority Report, Fargo) as “The Replacement,” a guy you can hire to be a stand-in for your obligations while you’re off playing Black Ops 2. It’s a funny enough trailer — Stormare is, after all, awesome — but it’s a bummer that Activision opted for a sexist view of the whole thing by sending Stormare to various “boring woman-involving activities,” like the birth of your child, a blind date, or flirting at the office.
I’d have loved to see Stormare on a blind date with a dude who expected someone named Tiffany who’s too busy kicking asses in Black Ops to go out with him. It’s not that hard, Activision. It also would have been pretty funny.
Revolution hits Xbox 360 on Jan. 29, with PC and Playstation 3 presumably to follow about a month later.
