Activision and Treyarch have announced details for Eclipse, the next DLC pack headed to Black Ops III. Eclipse will be released April 19th on PS4 with “other next-gen platforms to follow.” This second DLC will not be avaialble on the PS3 or Xbox 360 consoles.
There will be four new multiplayer maps Spire, Rift, Knockout, and Verge and one new Zombies map entitled Zetsubou No Shima which features WWII elements on an abandoned Pacific Island. Zetsubou No Shima continues the storyline that started in Der Eisendrache with the Awakening DLC and will run through all four DLC’s this year.
Map descriptions and a one sheet for the DLC can be found below. Call of Duty: Black Ops III Eclipse launches April 19, 2016 on PS4 with Xbox One and PC versions “to follow.”
- 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.
