In the upcoming Uprising DLC, players will be able to experience an entirely new survival-horror, zombie adventure through, “Mob of the Dead”. Players will find four prohibition-era mobsters, Billy Handsome (Ray Liotta), Al “The Weasel” Arlington (Joe Pantoliano), Salvatore “Sal” DeLuca (Chazz Palmentiri), and Michael “Finn” O’Leary (Madsen) serving time in Alcatraz Prison. When plans to break out of Alcatraz are disrupted by the undead, the inmates will have to rely on their skills with firearms, blunt instruments and other improvised weaponry to battle the zombie infestation on the island. Players will have to work their way through steel cells and concrete buildings while fighting off zombified prisoners and guards. According to Activision, if a player becomes a victim, a new feature called, “Purgatory” will send players to the afterlife.
The Uprising DLC will be released to the Xbox 360 on April 16, 2013. For more information, visit the official Black Ops 2: Uprising DLC site.
