No, it's not family-friendly (I say "keep the kids off of it!"), but I know a lot of Daddys and Mommys that slip quietly into solider mode after the kids are tucked into bed for the night. I'm one of 'em, and CALL OF DUTY has long been my franchise of choice. Now that BLACK OPS II has been out for a bit, the first DLC Map Pack has been deployed on XBOX LIVE. CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS II REVOLUTION is available today for players on Xbox 360. It might be time to call The Replacer. Yes, the role of The Rock Father may have to be played by Peter Stormare for a little bit.
Revolution delivers an unparalleled amount of variety and content for all types of Call of Duty: Black Ops II players, featuring four all-new multiplayer maps set around the globe. "Downhill" is a snowy alpine chateau perfect for hectic close-quarters combat. "Mirage" is a sand-devastated luxury villa suited for all play styles, while "Hydro" is a massive hydroelectric dam in Pakistan lined with long-range vantage points perfect for sniping. And "Grind" is a skate park in Venice Beach, where players must adapt to the map's unique ramps, bowls and curvatures as they try and take cover from enemy fire.
Zombies fans get a terrifying double-dose of undead action in Revolution. First,the new map, "Die Rise," drops players inside a maze of crumbling skyscrapers amidst a ravaged Chinese city, where all-new Wonder Weaponry will play a crucial role as they make a valiant stand against the impending zombie hoard. Additionally, Revolution's innovative new Zombies mode, "Turned," flips this new fan-favorite mode around, allowing players to become the undead and play as a zombie, offering an entirely new style of bragging rights.
Rounding out the wide breadth of new content in Revolution is the "Peacekeeper," a one-time offering of a new multiplayer weapon planned for Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC.
To celebrate today's launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops II Revolution, Activision and Treyarch will pit baseball superstars Matt Cain of the San Francisco Giants and Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays against each other in a Grudge Match for Call of Duty bragging rights. Cain and Longoria will captain teams featuring development team members, online personalities and fans in an intense head-to-head battle.

It's probably time to call THE REPLACER:
