It's been some time since the release of the previous Call of Duty Black Ops 3 DLC, so fans of the Treyarch developed first person shooter are definitely ready for a new round of additional content. The next DLC pack promises to be not only features that players expected, but something else that's completely surprising.
The new Call of Duty Black Ops 3 DLC pack will be called Descent and it will launch on PlayStation 4 first on July 12th. Like previous packs, it will include four new multiplayer maps and a new Origins Zombies experience called Gorod Krovi, which will feature dragons and a swarm of mechanized zombie infantry.
The four new Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Descent DLC maps include a re-imagining of the Black Ops 2 map Raid called Empire, and three brand new ones called Cryogen, Berserk and Rumble.
Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops III movement system to the Call of Duty®: Black Ops II fan favourite map Raid. The re-imagining of this classic, medium-sized map features an authentic Roman villa that has been "recreated by a modern-day eccentric billionaire," where a classic map structure mixes with the new gameplay mechanics of Black Ops III.
Cryogen: Located far off the coast in the Dead Sea, an isolated compound holds some of the world's most dangerous criminals in frozen isolation. Sentry towers keep watch over the small map's circular design as frenetic combat is funneled around the prison's cryogenic tubes, where opportunities for wall running attacks abound.
Berserk: Ancient sentinels from a lost civilization guard the entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time. Players will fight through blizzards, and control the center bridge as they navigate this medium-sized map's wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings, and tight chokepoints.
Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanized warriors in Rumble, a stadium where giant robots battle to the roar of the crowd. This medium-sized map funnels high-speed combat to the central arena, where players battle their way through fallen mechs and pyrotechnics.
Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Descent will launch on PlayStation 4 on July 12th. A release date for the PC and Xbox One versions has yet to be confirmed.
