Call Of Duty: Black Ops III – Eclipse Launch Trailer Arrives Ahead Of Release


It seems like it was only yesterday that the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops III arrived. However, time is always barreling forward, and now the second map pack, Eclipse, is set to drop for the PlayStation 4 tomorrow. And, to celebrate the impending release, Treyarch has debuted a new launch trailer for the content.

Similar to past DLC releases for the franchise, Eclipse will come packed with four brand new multiplayer maps, as well as the next chapter in the popular Zombies mode. While the previous trailer for the release featured a look at the absurd looking Zetsubou No Shima Zombies, the launch trailer focuses squarely on the four new maps.

Even going off of the brief glimpses we get here, each map included with Eclipse looks to have its own unique style. The Shaolin-flavored Knockout, high-flying Spire, reimagined classic Verge and industrial-based Rift should all be solid additions to the slate of maps already found in Black Ops III.

Personally, I was a pretty big fan of the previous DLC release, Awakening, and I’m excited to spend some time in these new levels as well. While they all have intriguing designs, what I’m actually interested in most is Verge, which is a remake of the World At War map Banzai.

It may seem strange, but I was a pretty big fan of World At War, much more so than the Modern Warfare entries, and I have plenty of fond memories of wasting time in the game. Banzai was one of the better maps in World at War, so I’m excited to see how Treyarch re-worked it for all of the modern features found in this iteration of the franchise.
