Mp1st Has managed to grab a glimpse of what seems to be Black Ops 2’s Season Pass which promises to include the following:

Get 4 Call of Duty®: Black Ops 2 downloadable content Map Packs, delivering a variety of new content, including Multiplayer and Zombies playable content.

  • Save $10, at discounted suggested retail price of £34.99*
  • Content expected to be available in 2013 – following the game’s launch on 11/13/12
  • Check for availability at your local Game Stop or Best Buy.

*Based on Season Pass suggested retail price of £34.99 and four DLC Map Packs at a suggested retail price of $14.99 each.

**Season Pass and DLC Map Packs may not be available on all platforms or in all territories.  Pricing and release dates may vary by platform. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 game required; sold separately

The source came from the official Black Ops 2 site. Unfortunately the link doesn’t seem to work anymore and just points back to the official Blacks Ops 2 home page.

Another interesting bit of news is Call of Duty Elite being free. According to the image taken by Mp1st, the link appears to shows the text “Free Elite for Black Ops 2”.

This may not be Elite Premium, mind you, but it seems that Call of Duty is trying to expand that feature to possibly compete with EA’s Battlelog (which has always been free for BF3 players).

None of this has been confirmed yet so lets keep our expectations in check.


Kotaku has verified the information above with Activision. Call of Duty Elite will also be completely free and include the following features.

  • Player HQ – Track Call of Duty: Black Ops II performance with rich game statistics, including enhanced match information such as heat maps and recent match data; track challenges and extensively modify your classes like never before using Treyarch’s new Pick 10 Create-a-Class system.
  • Clan HQ – Join an existing clan or start your own, invite friends and then take part in Call of Duty: Black Ops II clan competitions with cool digital prizing.
  • Zombies Support – For the millions of Zombies fans out there, now you can track your Zombies personal statistics and compare it to other players’ around the world.
  • Call of Duty Elite TV – Launching with tablet support with Call of Duty: Black Ops II, the new Call of Duty Elite TV will deliver a renewed community focus featuring developer tips and strategy programming, custom class overviews and more.
  • Social Sharing and Notifications – With Call of Duty Elite’s new notification system, you can stay updated with what is going on in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, as well as communicate directly with your clan.

Black Ops 2 will officially launch on November 13 for Xbox 360, PC, and PS3. The Wii U version is expected to launch on November 18 (same day as the console) however no official word has been given on how DLC’s will be management on the system.
