"Every story has a beginning...and an end."
— "Origins" trailer


"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. 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."
— Origins release article


Origins is a Zombies map included in the Apocalypse downloadable content for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.[1]It is the seventeenth (chronologically, the first) Zombies level.

Overview

The "original characters" (Takeo, Nikolai, Richtofen and Dempsey) return as the four playable characters. The zombies have the classical orange eyes. The map features Wonder Weapons that harness supernatural powers, a diesel-drone and Mark IV tank, as well a new Perk-a-Cola machine and Power-Ups.[2]

The Demonic Announcer is neither Richtofen nor Samantha. This is due to Richtofen being a playable character and Samantha's birth being years after the events of the level.
