Call Of Duty: Black Ops III’s First DLC Map Pack, Awakening, Is Due Out In Early 2016


Awakening is Call Of Duty: Black Ops III‘s first DLC map pack, and it’s coming to PlayStation 4 30 days before it hits Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PC. Activision and Treyarch are yet to announce a release date for the map pack, but the official announcement on Activision’s official blog reads:

To help kick off PlayStation Experience in San Francisco, today we are thrilled to share the first details of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s first DLC map pack and some exciting news for the upcoming Call of Duty World League season. Revealed during this morning’s keynote address, the first of four planned DLC map packs will be Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Awakening and it will arrive first on PlayStation 4. Awakening features four new multiplayer maps—Skyjacked, Rise, Splash, and Gauntlet—and the next chapter in the Black Ops 3 Zombies saga, Der Eisendrachen.

Aside from the sole image provided for each map (seen on the poster below), the only real information to be had is that at least one of them will be a re-imagining of a past multiplayer map in the series. Which one it is remains to be seen, but rumors are circulating that Black Ops II’s Hijacked map is first on the list.
