Treyarch revealed the details of Black Ops 3’s second DLC pack via livestream yesterday, which will include four multiplayer maps and a new zombies level. Called Eclipse, PlayStation 4 players can purchase the new DLC from April 19th, with Xbox and PC expected to receive it one month later.
Reimaginings of classic maps is becoming a trend with Call of Duty DLC and the trend doesn’t stop here, with a remake of the World at War map Banzai. Treyarch seem to live difficult to pronounce names for their zombies levels too, with Zetsubou No Shima coming in Eclipse. Here’s a quick rundown of the four multiplayer maps, from the Official PlayStation Blog:
“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.”
Wave goodbye to the characters in Der Eisendrache, as Zetsubou No Shima re-introduces the characters from Treyarch’s Origins storyline. Set on a World War II-era Pacific island, humans, animals and plants alike have suffered severe consequences from Element-115 and you’ll need to slaughter them all. New transport mechanics, devastating traps and classic zombies side quests await you in Zetsubou No Shima.
Pick up Eclipse on April 19th on PlayStation 4 for around £11.99, if previous prices are any indication. You can check out the preview for Zetsubou No Shima below and if you’re interested in the first map pack Awakening, you can read our review here.
