A WW1-era France with dieselpunk zombies, that is.

Yesterday’s teaser trailer for Black Ops 2 was, as predicted, for the fourth and final piece of the DLC.
The DLC will come with four multiplayer maps, and a new Zombies campaign called ‘Origins’, which will feature a track called Shepherd of Fire from Avenged Sevenfold.
“Apocalypse is Treyarch’s grand finale to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2,” claims Treyarch studio head, Mark Lamia. “Apocalypse is a DLC pack that our fans will never forget.”
The ‘Origins’ Zombies campaign is set in a “Dieselpunk-stylized World War I-era France” and will star the four original heroes from the very first Zombies map, Tank, Nikolai, Takeo, and Rictofen.
“Unleashed after the Germans unearthed the mysterious Element 115, this next chapter in the Zombies legacy will explore the saga’s origins as players reunite with an unlikely band of soldiers that come together to defeat the greatest evil the world has ever seen, using a period-specific arsenal that includes Wonder Weapons that harness supernatural powers, a diesel-drone and Mark IV tank, as well a new perk machine and power-ups – and that’s just the start,” reads the synopsis.
“Players will need all the help they can get to succeed in defeating the undead, as well as evading an unprecedented 1,000-foot tall robot abomination.”
As usual, it’ll be out first on Xbox LIVE (on August 27) and then on PC about a month later.
