Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Eclipse DLC arrives in April on PS4

01 Apr 2016

The second DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been announced and it is called "Eclipse". It will arrive later this month first on PS4.  The Eclipse DLC will arrive for the PS4 on April 20th, 2016. It comes with four new maps as well as a new Zombie experience. Information on the individual maps can be seen below.  “The incredible amount of engagement and response to Black Ops III from our fans continues to inspire all of us at the studio,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch.  “Eclipse continues to demonstrate our commitment to delivering the most exciting gameplay experiences possible with each DLC pack.  We are pushing ourselves at every turn to craft new and unique ways to play.”   ·         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.

The new Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 DLC will arrive on Xbox One and PC at a later date. The DLC won't be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms. The DLC itself costs $22.50 NZD or you can get it as part of the $69.95 NZD Season Pass.
