An unconfirmed list of multiplayer maps from the Activision's Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was supposedly posted by a Se7en Sins forums user from the internal beta. We can't confirm on the legitimacy of the supposed leak, however, here's the list of map descriptions courtesy of Se7en Sins. Unfortunately, no associated images of the maps were included, except for the screenshot of the list below:
Carrier: Chinese Supercarrier. Open engagements on the deck, with great close quarter fights through the hull.
Cargo: Port of Singapore. Good for close quarters engagements and verticality.
Drone: Hidden drone facility in the heart of the Mynamar jungles. Great long engagements down the center, fun close quarter fights through the facility.
Express: Los Angeles bullet train station. Good long to medium engagements up and down the bullet train tracks.
Hijacked: Luxurious super yacht. Frantic, yet controlled close quarters engagements.
Aftermath: Set in a ruined downtown Los Angeles after an invasion.
Meltdown: Pakistan nuclear power plant. Battle for control of the nuclear cooling tower and the surrounding facilities.
Nightclub: Floating resort in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Tight corners and angles throughout.
Overflow: Peshawar, Pakistan. Great urban engagements in the flooded streets.
Raid: Fight through this hillside mansion, in the Hollywood Hills. Hectic close quarters engagements.
Slums: Run down section of Panama. Great close quarters engagements and tough chokes to fight over.
Socotra: Urban streets of Yemen. Tight alleys and close quarters engagements.
Turbine: Wind farm in the steep hills of Yemen. Fight across the different tiers and angles.
Village: Border town between China and Kyrgyzstan. Classic engagements and destinations to fight over.
If these multiplayer map list is indeed genuine, gamers will be challenged with many of the maps promoting close quarters combat. We're also seeing previously announced maps such as Cargo, Aftermath and Turbine but not Nuketown 2025, which makes sense with the bonus map is only available through preorders and Nuketown Zombies from the Collector's Edition. Few pictures of the leaked maps are still available on the web but several videos about the supposedly multiplayer Black Ops 2 maps have already been taken down due to copyright claims, which should indicate a hint of legitimacy. Fortunately, someone from Se7en Sins has dumped files from the internal beta still posted.
Since Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is going to be launched on November 13, if the list is not a fake, it's highly probable that it minor tweak will be added. With the level of technology these days, it's hard not to doubt the legitimacy of these leaks but we're playing it safe and will wait for confirmations from Activision. Do you think we're looking at real multiplayer maps or could it be just an elaborate hoax that caught fire on the internet? Check out the video below before Activision claims copyright against it. Update: Ooops too late, Activision have already swiftly removed it from the public domain. Looks like we're on to them.
The Aftermath map is confirmed to be included in CoD: Black Ops 2 multiplayer.
