Call of Duty: Black Ops III‘s third DLC map pack is available to buy and download now on PlayStation 4, Activision has announced. Descent, like previous add-ons Awakening and Eclipse, introduces four new competitive multiplayer maps for shooter fans to duke it out in, as well as a new Zombie mode map – Gorod Krovi – set in the remains of a destroyed Stalingrad. See that gigantic Zombie dragon in the image above? Yeah, you can look forward to being roasted by it when you get around to exploring Gorod Krovi.
As for the competitive maps, Cryogen, Beserk and Rumble are all brand new stages for you to familiarize with over the next few weeks. Empire, on the other hand, is a remake of the fan favourite Black Ops II map Raid, trading the original setting for a Roman villa aesthetic instead.
See the description for each below:
- Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops III movement system to the Call of Duty®: Black Ops II fan favourite map Raid. The re-imagining of this classic, medium-sized map features an authentic Roman villa that has been “recreated by a modern-day eccentric billionaire,” where a classic map structure mixes with the new gameplay mechanics of Black Ops III.
- Cryogen: Located far off the coast in the Dead Sea, an isolated compound holds some of the world’s most dangerous criminals in frozen isolation. Sentry towers keep watch over the small map’s circular design as frenetic combat is funneled around the prison’s cryogenic tubes, where opportunities for wall running attacks abound.
- Berserk: Ancient sentinels from a lost civilisation guard the entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time. Players will fight through blizzards and control the centre bridge as they navigate this medium-sized map’s wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings and tight chokepoints.
- Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanised warriors in Rumble, a stadium where giant robots battle to the roar of the crowd. This medium-sized map funnels high-speed combat to the central arena, where players battle their way through fallen mechs and pyrotechnics.
A fourth and final map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops III is due out in the coming months. Activision hasn’t given any specific date for when you’ll see it release, but you can probably expect it to be before November 4, as Infinite Warfare will have assumed the title of newest Call of Duty on that date.
