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.
