Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Eclipse DLC coming later this month
The expansion will feature four new maps alongside a terrifying new chapter for the game’s popular zombie mode.
All of this will be coming first to PS4 on April 19, with other platforms to follow in the coming weeks.
The four new maps consist of three completely new experiences and a remastered classic from 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War:
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. Utilise 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 centre 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

Players will also gain access to ‘Zetsubou No Shima,’ the newest chapter in Black Ops 3’s hugely popular Zombies storyline.
“Our heroes find themselves stranded on a remote Pacific island which is home to the Division 9 facility: a secret biological research lab whose experiments with Element 115 and its effects on human, animal and plant biology has created horrors beyond belief.
“Zetsubou No Shima features a foliage-rich island map including new terrifying zombie enemies, a variety of innovative transport mechanics, more devastating traps and classic Zombies side quests.”

The expansion will be available as part of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 season pass or individually at an unconfirmed price.
Eclipse is the second of four planned map packs for Black Ops 3, with the remaining two set to launch before the end of 2016.
