Black Ops 3 second downloadable content pack will arrive on the PlayStation 4 first on April 19th. The map pack follows a similar structure to previous packs, which includes four new multiplayer maps, which includes one map that’s been re-imagined from a popular map in Call of Duty: World at War (Banzai). Alongside the new multiplayer maps, a new chapter in Zombies is also arriving in the DLC #2 which they’re calling “Eclipse.”
PlayStation owners will be getting the map pack first due to Activision new agreement with Sony for the month-long timed exclusivity of the content. After that month though, the Eclipse downloadable content for Black Ops 3 will arrive on Xbox and PC.
Descriptions of the new multiplayer maps can be found below:
- Spire: Spire takes Multiplayer combat to a futuristic sub-orbital airport terminal set high in the clouds. Multiple levels and open areas promote intense, mid-range combat around a clean, high-tech civilian environment. Watch your step, because one wrong move could send you plummeting back through the stratosphere.
- Rift: Head to the core of a harsh futuristic military complex, set high above an active caldera. Rift funnels and forces tight, intense engagements, where the only way through is forward. Utilize the unique core movement opportunities to outsmart and outplay enemies as you traverse the suspended rail system.
- Knockout: Housed in a traditional Shaolin Temple with a retro twist, Knockout sets the stage for a bloody Kung Fu tournament. This mid-sized map showcases a sharp contrast between the mid-range engagements of the traditional exterior architecture and the tight close-quarters of an eclectic 1970’s styled interior.
- Verge: In this re-imagination of the classic Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai, Verge drops Multiplayer combat into the center of a distant post-apocalyptic future, where two warring factions are entrenched in constant battle. Take control of the key bridge, fortresses, tunnel systems and waterfalls as you engage in high-speed action through this medium-sized map
If you want to see the new content early, Treyarch will be live streaming the Eclipse DLC on their YouTube channel. The stream is slated to start at 11AM PT. The stream is said to feature both multiplayer maps and zombies content.
