SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- January 29, 2013

The revolution has begun! Call of Duty®: Black Ops II Revolution, the first of
four Downloadable Content (DLC) Map Packs for the record-setting Call of Duty:
Black Ops II launches today! From Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI), and their award-winning
studio Treyarch, Revolution delivers an unprecedented amount of new and
innovative “must-play” content, including four radically diverse multiplayer
maps from around the world, as well as a new Zombies map “Die Rise.”
Revolution also features a couple of franchise first offerings, including a
brand-new Zombies mode “Turned,” which literally turns the tables and allows
gamers to play as a zombie, as well as a new bonus multiplayer weapon, the
“Peacekeeper.” Revolution is available today first, exclusively on Xbox LIVE®
for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, with
other platforms to follow. Fans can purchase Revolution individually, or pick
it up as part of the Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC Season Pass discounted*
bundle.

“Revolution is packed with a ton of fun,” said Mark Lamia, Treyarch’s Studio
Head. “We worked incredibly hard to deliver the most expansive DLC offering in
our studio’s history: from four maps in exciting and dynamic new locations
like skate parks and ski slopes, to being able to play as a zombie, and a new
bonus weapon in multiplayer – Revolution is a wild ride, and we’re excited for
Call of Duty fans to start playing.”

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. Gamers can review highlights on Call
of Duty: Black Ops II Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/codblackops.

Revolution DLC Map Pack is included in the Call of Duty: Black Ops II DLC

Duty: Black Ops II, and also receive the Nuketown Zombies bonus map, and an
