It has been announced that the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC pack, entitled Eclipse, will release later this month.
According to a new trailer posted on the Xbox YouTube channel, Eclipse will release on the Xbox One on May 19th. A PC date was not given, though it can be assumed that it will release on the same day.
Eclipse will introduce four new multiplayer maps to the game: Verge, Rift, Spire, and Knockout. It will also include the latest chapter in the Zombies story, entitled Zetsubou No Shima. Below is a description of the four new maps:
- 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-size 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.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III is available on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Activision has confirmed that Eclipse will not release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.
