Activision has revealed when PC and PS3 players can access the Vengeance DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Those players can check out the download's four multiplayer maps and new Zombies mode in August.

More specifically, the content is coming to those platforms on August 1 for $14.99. Here's a quick recap of the multiplayer maps, straight from Activision:

  • Cove: The stage is set for all-out conflict on this small, forgotten island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, with players battling it out amongst the wreckage of a jet that crash-landed during a smuggling operation gone wrong. 
  • Detour: A destroyed suspension bridge high above an East Coast waterway, packed with scattered vehicles, exposed iron, and collapsed pavement where the head-to-head action will play out on multiple levels. 
  • Rush: Get ready for fast, close-quarters engagements in this paintball course turned full-combat arena, giving players new opportunities and challenges to use the cover to their advantage. 
  • Uplink:  In this re-imagined adaptation of the fan-favorite multiplayer map “Summit” from the original Call of Duty: Black Ops, players clash deep in the rain-soaked jungles of Myanmar, high atop a hi-tech mountain facility.
The download also includes the new Zombies chapter, Buried. Buried is set in an abandoned mining town, and includes the special Ray Gun Mark II. You can see some of the zombie-slaying action for yourself in the trailer below.


Our Take
By now, PC and PS3 players should be used to the Call of Duty DLC drill. Getting the content a month after the Xbox 360 version remains a drag, but it's far from the end of the world.
