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.
