Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 has once again gone to Hollywood for their popular first-person shooter, this time for the "Uprising" DLC.

Batman writer David Goyer helped write the campaign story for Black Ops 2, and now four actors join the zombie map, "Mob of the Dead."

Ray Liotta, Michael Madsen, Joe Pantoliano and Chazz Palmentiri are playable characters as Black Ops 2 goes to Alcatraz.

There are four other maps included with the "Uprising" DLC for regular multiplayer mode that includes "Magma," which is set near an active volcano with lava spilling out on to the streets; there is "Encore," which is set in a London amphitheater; "Vertigo" sees players taken to a high-rise building in India, and "Studio," which takes place in Hollywood and includes various movie sets.

There is also said to be a new feature for "Mob of the Dead" called "Purgatory," which is being kept under wraps, but promises something extra for players that get killed while battling the zombies.

Treyarch, the creators behind Black Ops 2, released the following behind-the-scenes video for "Uprising" where we see footage of Ray Liotta, Michael Madsen, Joe Pantoliano, Chazz Palmentiri and more.

Similar to the leaked information from yesterday, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 "Uprising" has a confirmed April 16th release for the XBox 360 exclusively, with a PS3 date to-be-announced.
