Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 DLC 1-3 Review Recap

Black Ops III

With Salvation and Call of Duty XP 2016 around the corner, I’ve finally had the chance to play the other DLC packs for Black Ops 3. After only having Eclipse for quite while, it’s a breath of fresh air into gameplay. In addition to that, it’s quite easier to get into active multiplayer lobbies. Due to how lobby playlists are setup for DLC users, if a player doesn’t have the multiplayer DLC, they wind up in their own playlist and wait for quite a while to get into a match. There have been times that I’ve waited over 10 minutes to get into a multiplayer match because of this limitation, and it’s really frustrating. Players are left with having to wait to get in, try a different gametype they may not want to play, or uninstalling the DLC to make it much easier to get into a game match. One feature from Modern Warfare 3 that I miss is the fact that there was an option to switch the DLC on or off for multiplayer, and it’s something I wish would become a standard feature for games with paid DLC. Hopefully, this will eventually change with future games.Read More

Zombies: The End of an Era

With the recent announcement of fourth DLC, Black Ops 3 Salvation brings forth the finale of the Origins Zombies storyline. In addition to Zombies, Salvation brings four action-packed multiplayer maps to the table.

To quote Mark Lamia, the Studio Head of Treyarch-

“Without a doubt, this is the most epic season of DLC that we’ve ever created for fans of Multiplayer and Zombies. At this point it goes without saying, that Zombies has been a true labour of love for the studio and I’m proud to say that this will be a defining and epic experience for the fans who have joined us over the last 8 years.”

Revelations, featured in Salvation, is the the long-awaited final chapter in the Origins  Zombies saga.  In  Revelations, we meet up with the  Origins characters after they’ve taken an epic journey through space and time – all of their struggles lead to this very moment. In this, the final chapter of the Zombies experience, Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo and Nikolai finally come face to face with the mysterious Doctor Monty in The House.  Confronted by an ancient evil, our heroes must fight the zombie horde once more in the final battle to save their immortal souls.Read More

First released for Playstation 4 on April 19th, with it coming to PC and Xbox One on May 19th, Black Ops 3 Eclipse DLC is what could be either really fun, or possibly some more of the same from Treyarch’s three-lane system that they use for designing multiplayer. Having recently bought this DLC for the PS4, the regular multiplayer maps still have the same design feel while keeping it fun. while the new Zombies map keeps Zetsubou No Shima keeps it interesting. Since there’s a special playlist that has matches only on the new multiplayer maps and I played a bit on them along with zombies, so here’s my thoughts on them.Read More
