Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Is Ready To Awaken On Xbox One And PC
The first DLC pack for Call of Duty Black Ops 3, called Awakening is set to hit Xbox One and PC on March 4th, with PlayStation 4 owners already having it available.
Awakening includes 4 maps and the first update to the Zombies campaign with Der Eisendrache picking up where The Giant left off. Set in a chilling medieval Austrian castle during World War II, players will embark on an epic 4-part journey with the Origin characters Richtofen, Nikolai, Takeo and Dempsey, spanning the DLC season. The ancient site on which the castle sits was the scene of unspeakable horror where massive deposits of Element 115 have recently been discovered. Players will discover a variety of exciting plot twists and surprises as they survive waves of the undead.
The four maps that players can experience are detailed below:
Skyjacked: High above urban Zurich, Skyjacked is a modernized version of the popular Call of Duty: Black Ops II multiplayer map Hijacked. Utilizing the new core movement system featured in Black Ops III, this map gives players new ways to explore the environment, while still retaining the same fast and frenetic gameplay players love.
Splash: Dive into battle in this abandoned water park, featuring a vibrant and colourful environment, including waterslides, a wrecked pirate ship and a lazy river. Splash encourages an open flow of combat with opportunities for underwater gameplay.
Gauntlet: Delivering three unique environments within one action-packed map, Gauntlet showcases Treyarch’s classic three-lane map structure, transporting players into battle through a sprawling jungle, sub-zero artic zone and rainy urban cityscape.
Rise: A versatile multiplayer map, Rise is set in the snowy outskirts of Zurich in the middle of an ongoing construction site for a massive subterranean Coalescence research campus. With multiple engagement areas throughout this larger map, each section caters to different styles of gameplay.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Awakening DLC Map Pack is available at a discounted rate via the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Season Pass, which features all four DLC Map Packs planned for the year, as part of the discounted bundle offered at a suggested retail price of $64.95. Individual purchase of DLC Map Packs is at a suggested retail price of $19.95
