Revelations is the final chapter of the Zombies experience and Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai have travelled through space and time to finally discover the identity of the mysterious Doctor Monty in The House.

Third Black Ops III DLC incoming

Treyarch and Activision have recently announced the next DLC coming to Black Ops 3. Named Descent the dlc like previous content updates, will introduce 4 new maps into the game and also extend the already awesome Zombie experience. So expect the unexpected as you traverse and fight you way through a cryogenic prison, a Viking village frozen in time, a giant robot combat arena and a modern day reconstruction of an ancient Roman villa. What more could you ask for?

Details of the new maps are 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.

As always with any update the Zombie experience gets expanded and again you won’t be disappointed. Descent thrusts players in to an alternate universe of Nikolai’s motherland, the 1940s Soviet Union, in the next highly-anticipated chapter of the Origins Zombies saga, Gorod Krovi.  Players face-off against a swarm of mechanised zombie infantry and dodge hell-fire from aerial dragon assaults, all in the middle of a raging battle within the remnants of Stalingrad.  Gorod Krovi delivers the most exciting Zombies experience yet, filled with horrifying new enemies, exciting new gameplay mechanics and an epic set of Zombie annihilating weapons.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Descent will land on the PlayStation 4 on July 12th so expect it to be released for the Xbox One around the 9th August.

Black Ops 3: Eclipse DLC finally released for Xbox

The wait is finally over and the second DLC for Black Ops 3, Eclipse has finally been released for Xbox.

Named Eclipse, the new dlc brings 4 new Multiplayer maps and the next chapter in the origins zombies experience, Zetsubou No Shima. The 4 new multiplayer maps are Verge, Rift, Spire, and Knockout.

  • Spire – takes Multiplayer combat to a futuristic sub-orbital airport terminal set high in the clouds. Multiple levels and open areas promote intense, mid-range combat around a clean, high-tech civilian environment. Watch your step, because one wrong move could send you plummeting back through the stratosphere.
  • Verge – In this re-imagination of the classic Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai, Verge drops Multiplayer combat into the center of a distant post-apocalyptic future, where two warring factions are entrenched in constant battle over one of the few remaining water sources. Take control of the key bridge, fortresses, tunnel systems and waterfalls as you engage in high-speed action through this medium-sized map.
  • Rift – Head to the core of a harsh futuristic military complex, set high above an active caldera. Rift funnels and forces tight, intense engagements, where the only way through is forward. Utilize the unique core movement opportunities to outsmart and outplay enemies as you traverse the suspended rail system.
  • Knockout – Housed in a traditional Shaolin Temple with a retro twist, Knockout sets the stage for a bloody Kung Fu tournament … with guns. This mid-sized map showcases a sharp contrast between the mid-range engagements of the traditional exterior architecture and the tight close-quarters of an eclectic 1970’s styled interior.

In the latest chapter of the Zombies experience Zetsubou No Shima, the Origins characters find themselves stranded on a remote Pacific island. Continuing their mission to stop the Zombie apocalypse they face the horrors caused by the effects of Element 115 on human, plant and animal biology. The new chapter allows you to explore diverse environments from lush, tropical forest to the stark, overgrown laboratory facility. Will you be brave enough to use the zip lines or will you hide in the sewer systems to evade the Zombie horde.

As with every weekend since release this weekend sees another Double XP Weekend. The double weapon XP event starts today 20th May (usually 6pm GMT) and will run till the 23rd May.
