Activision has announced the second DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. It is called Eclipse and includes four new multiplayer maps and introduces a new episode of the Zombies campaign that takes the characters to an island in the Pacific during World War II.
The Eclipse DLC will come to PS4 this April 19. The versions for Xbox One and PC will arrive a month later, but so far no release date is confirmed. As we had said before, Eclipse includes four new multiplayer maps – Spire, Rift, Knockout and Verge. You can checkout descriptions of the maps 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.
As for Zombies, this new chapter picks up the story of the characters from Black Ops II’s Origins and Black Ops III’s The Giant. Called as Zetsubou No Shima, it takes the heroes to a remote Pacific island, which conceals a secret lab that has been used for a variety of experiments, the results of which will no doubt have escaped and attempt to tear your face off.
The Eclipse pack will cost $15, and is included in the Black Ops III DLC season pass. If you want more information, Treyarch will be running a livestream at 11am Pacific Time today, running through the DLC pack in more detail.
