Call Of Duty: Black Ops III – Descent DLC Hits PlayStation 4 On July 12


The Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC schedule keeps rolling next month, as Activison has dated the next pack for July 12. Entitled Descent, the third pack for the game will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 until August.

Following in the pattern of previous DLC, Descent features four new multiplayer maps, as well as a new chapter in the Origins Zombies tale. In the latest grouping of maps, Treyarch will take soldiers everywhere from a futuristic cyber prison to an ancient Viking village.

Activision was nice enough to provide full descriptions of all four maps, and you can check them out below:

  • Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops III movement system to the Call of Duty: Black Ops II fan favorite 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 civilization guard the entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time. Players will fight through blizzards, and control the center bridge as they navigate this medium-sized map’s wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings, and tight chokepoints.
  • Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanized 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.

As for the next Zombies chapter, Gorod Krovi, Treyarch is already hyping it up as “the most exciting” one yet. Returning to alternate universe Soviet Russia, players will have to fend off both zombie infantry, and, oh yes, a freakin’ dragon. The battle in Stalingrad will introduce new enemies and mechanics that are sure to thrill fans.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Descent can either be purchased separately for $15, or can be acquired through the purchase of the title’s $50 Season Pass.
