The first DLC map pack, already available on PS4, for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, titled Awakening, is coming to Xbox One and PC on 3rd March, 2016.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the four new maps:
- Skyjacked is a modernised version of Black Ops II’s Hijacked map. Thanks to the new core movement system 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 features 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 showcases Treyarch’s classic three-lane map structure, transporting players into battle through a sprawling jungle, sub-zero arctic zone and rainy urban cityscape.
- 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.
Additionally, Awakening introduces the first chapter of the game’s Zombies DLC adventure 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 four-part journey with the Origin characters Richtofen, Nikolai, Takeo and Dempsey. The ancient site on which the castle sits was the scene of unspeakable horror where massive deposits of Element 115 have recently been discovered.
Unfortunately, the Season Pass content is only available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
