Activision is set to release the second DLC add-on for Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Eclipse– in just over two weeks. On April 19th PS4 players will be able to dive-in to four brand new multiplayer maps: Spire, Rift, Knockout and Verge. Eclipse also contains a brand new Zombies experience, titled Zetsubou No Shima, set in World War II’s Pacific Theater according to a press release issued by Activision Publishing.
Zetsubou No Shima continues the multi-character story that kicked off in the on-disc Zombies mode “Shadows of Evil”. In the latest installment our four main characters – voiced by Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neil McDonough and Ron Perlman – find themselves investigating experiments involving a mysterious compound called Element 115 at the Division 9 facilities in the Pacific islands.
If you’re looking for a description of each of the new maps included in eclipse look no further:
- 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
Call of Duty: Black Ops III‘s first DLC pack, Awakening, was released on Feb 3rd for PlayStation 4 Players, this past March for Xbox One & PC players and will be coming as the only DLC to PS3 owners tomorrow (April 5th).
