Activision has announced that the first DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Awakening, is coming to PlayStation 3 on Tuesday, April 5th. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC brings four multiplayer maps – Rise, Gauntlet, Skyjacked, and Splash – and new Zombies map, Der Eisendrache.

Multiplayer Maps:

  • Gauntlet: Grounded in a military training facility, Gauntlet plays up the core philosophy of Treyarch’s classic three lane map structure with distinct variety in visuals and gameplay. Each of the three primary lanes has a unique environment as players battle through a sprawling jungle, sub-zero artic zone and rainy urban cityscape.
  • Splash: Set in an abandoned water theme park, this vibrant and playful map delivers an imaginative environment complete with waterslides, a wrecked pirate ship, and a lazy river ride that winds through a fantastical forgotten city. Splash is designed to drive an open flow of combat, including plenty of opportunities for underwater gameplay.
  • Rise: Set in the snowy outskirts of Zurich, Rise is a Coalescence Corporation construction project for a massive subterranean research campus. The design of the map caters to a mix of classic Call of Duty cover combat alongside strategic core movement opportunities, with each section of the map offering distinctly different styles of gameplay.
  • Skyjacked: Set on a security VTOL in the clouds over urban Zurich, Skyjacked is a reimagined version of the popular Call of Duty®: Black Ops II multiplayer map Hijacked, and retains the same fast and frenetic gameplay from one of the most popular maps in Call of Duty® history, but with a twist. Skyjacked gives players the opportunity to explore the map in a variety of new ways thanks to the all-new core movement system in Black Ops III.

Zombies:

  • Der Eisendrache, the first chapter of Call of Duty: Black Ops III‘s Zombies DLC adventure will take players on an epic journey with the Origin characters Richtofen, Nicolai, Takeo, and Dempsey. Set in an eerie medieval castle built upon an ancient site of unspeakable horror, massive deposits of Element 115 have recently been discovered, delivering inspired new gameplay and – in Zombies tradition – a variety of exciting plot twists

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Awakening costs $14.99 and can only be bought as a separate download on PS3 as the Season Pass is not available on last-gen platforms. Players that do purchase Awakening on PS3 will receive an Awakening static theme for free.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and is coming April 5th to PS3.

  • ScOott

    Lmao I was confused for a second thought I’d skipped back in time then I noticed ps3.. Maybe save that money towards a new console, all though if u only play CoD it’s starting to sound like not much point, u guys have the best ones already while we have space to look forward to.. Yesssssss..

  • ccrows

    F***!

    I got all excited and clicked fast thinking this was DLC2 news… 🙁

    • EveryoneIsInsane

      Yup, me too. 🙁

  • Bengal Tigger

    oohh ma gudness

  • ccrows

    After today’s news about Space Warfare, I’m more excited than ever to hear about DLC2, 3, & 4 news.

    Cuz well they need to last me a while… 😉

  • getsuga embrace

    No wonder der Eisendrache, feels gimped. This deeply upsets me that the zombies maps are being held back by last gen. It is inexcusable, that this is happening in the current gen games.

    • Bleak5170

      The last gen and current gen versions of B.O. III have absolutely nothing to do with one another. This is not the old days of developing for the older hardware and porting to the new. They aren’t even handled by the same developer.

  • ccrows

    “Since PlayStation owners gets DLC map packs first, Xbox 360 users will get Awakening at a later date.”

    Are they seriously going to make 360 owners wait 30 days for this too? Really?

    I get that this isn’t going to apply to most of us here, but *sigh* wow…

    • Scotty Klingsmith

      We had to wait a month on ps3 so why shouldn’t you guys have to wait?

      • It’s last gen. It literally shouldn’t matter. So they should give it to both at the sametime. The game is literally a pile of shit on last gen.

    • DARTH MAUL

      Oh someone’s upset.. who pissed in your bowl today kid? Us PS4 users? Oh well.

  • jordanxbrookes

    Bigger joke than a Space COD right here lmao

  • Eaz Jmilly

    I thought were gonna be know DLCs for Last Gen ?

    • GinsuVictim

      Only no season pass. They had stated early on that DLC was coming at a later date.

  • Ak74u

    This is impossible I cant believe they are actually going to sell the DLC on last gen I thought this was dlc 2 news lol but who is stupid enough to buy dlc on last gen consoles. At this point everyone should have changed to current gen. Activision is really trying to milk the cow at its finest

    • GinsuVictim

      There are a ton of players on last gen, so why the hell wouldn’t they milk it?

  • FoxyTheDankPirate

    watch people bitching at treyarch in a day or less
    but its all because of that greedy activision… #Act

  • Ak74u

    That’s two rediculous things in one day. What’s next, I don’t even want to know

  • Riskninja

    Credit to the last-gen devs for coming up with this miracle for those on last gen.
    I have no idea how they’re gonna make their money back on this one though.

    • Ak74u

      It’s just a waste of time and resources for them for event trying to make the DLC for last gen I mean do people even still play last gen?

      • GinsuVictim

        Like I said, there are a lot of last gen players.

        • Ak74u

          You do know you’re not getting getting the full experience right and with majorly downgraded graphics

          • GinsuVictim

            Of course I do

          • Hans Maulwurf

            You do know not everybody is a graphic whore and gameplay comes first for most gamers

      • Donald Trump

        I only play for BO2

      • ALP1002

        i and 50 000 others do in zombies, in multiplayer its like 75 000 on Europe servers of course

        • Ak74u

          On what black ops2 because bo3 doesn’t show numbers of how many people are playing it only percentages. You do know that bo3 on last gen is poorly made and they aren’t releasing them on last gen because they care about last gen users the reason why they are releasing it on last gen is to get those users to spend money on a poorly made shitty port. If they gave a fuck they would if tried to make the game look better on last gen

          • ALP1002

            so tech limits don’t exit, ah ok i get it.

      • Riskninja

        truuuuuuuue

      • quentin thomas

        yes people do

      • Hans Maulwurf

        For someone who maybe get’s all stuffed in the ass by his parents it’s easy to talk like that.
        Live in a own flat, pay all bills by yourself, have a own family to support, then try to save money for a remastergen console and think again.

      • Atom G2789

        Yes we all still play last gen. What’s a waste of time is for companies to keep coming out with remastered games like COD4 mw. Which I’m sure you are the type of person who buys the remastered which you could have just saved your money and played them on last gen

  • [EV] BLISS

    Bruh wtf I was so happy this was dlc for ps4!!!!!!!!! OMFG, someone hand me a gun.

  • [EV] BLISS

    The funny thing is that xbox 360 users get it at a different date lmao

    • Ak74u

      Nobody even plays 360 or ps3 anymore so what’s the point of that lol its all about xbox one and ps4

      • TheDemonOfHate

        Same shit

        • Ak74u

          Yeah but there shouldn’t be exclusivity on last gen because they are both already getting it super late and nobody even plays bo3 last gen

          • TheDemonOfHate

            Many of my friends still play on bo3 last gen ….

          • Ak74u

            They need to keep up with present time I don’t know anyone who doesn’t have a ps4 or xbox one

          • TheDemonOfHate

            Like said before, Not many people have money to purchase a new console.

          • quentin thomas

            well no surprise because all u know r rich spoiled brats

          • M

            Its part of the sony deal that dlc will come first to the playstation platforms so that also means ps3. Says so in the press release

      • Donald Trump

        I play my 360 more then my ps4

        • madshooterguy

          Cause you’re donald trump lol

      • quentin thomas

        this comment just shows how naive you are. plenty of people still play last gen. hey not every body is a spoiled brat like you we actually have to take time to save up for new gen consoles cuz we have family 2 support first

      • Hans Maulwurf

        Wrong, I still play on last gen even though I have current gen console and a gaming PC. But I regret buying current gen cuz most games I like are the same like on last gen and are remastered. Why should I buy a console to play the same games again which I already own on last gen? Just because the graphics are better? I am not a graphic whore, gameplay > graphics!

        And did u ever imagine there are people who don’t get anything stuffed in their asses from mommy and daddy? Maybe they don’t live with their parents, have to pay all bills by themselves, have a own family to support and it’s hard to save money for a remastergen console?

      • Atom G2789

        A lot of people play the 360 and ps3. I have a ps4 and xboxone and still go back to play my 360 and ps3. I still have a lot of friends who want to do easter eggs in black ops and black ops2. Some people were smart and don’t trade all there old gen stuff for new gen we buy them and play both old and new. Unfortunate for you for not playing on the consoles that revolutionized the way we play in new gen.

  • Batman

    2 jokes in one day CI

  • Ak74u

    Remember when playstation 3 users wanted dlc exclusivity for cod? Well here it is lmao a generation late

    • TheDemonOfHate

      aahhe

    • infinity396

      some exclusivity.. lmao.. 2 months after it was released for PS4…

  • PS4 Master Race

    Say what you want about the PS3; it’s still better than the Xbox One

    • jordanxbrookes

      No.

    • ToonToons22

      Here come the losers who go on and on about how their plastic box is better than the other guy’s. Please do us a giant favor and GTFO.

      • DARTH MAUL

        Here we have a PC gamer in its natural habitat.

        • ToonToons22

          I play console a whole lot more than I do PC. I just think that console fighting is childish and out of place in a civilized conversation. Most people would agree with me on that.

          But what about that comment you posted bragging about the PS4 exclusivity deal? You ended up inciting a flame war. That is the definition of trolling.

          • DARTH MAUL

            Yeah you’re right it is childish, but only thing I wasn’t trolling I was stating an opinion.

    • get out

    • GlitchingFury

      Going to have to agree with you buddy I do bo3 glitches on old gen still people like it oh and if you want to check those glitches out my youtube channe name is GlitchingFury?

    • Donald Trump

      When i saw this comment then looked at your name i started laughing

    • ALP1002

      TVbox ONE just got roasted

  • Mikey9835

    Hey Activision, you do realize April fools day is still a couple days away right? On the bright side at least ps3 players will actually be able to see enemies in the jungle area on Guantlet, due to the lack of textures lol

  • shadowguy14

    Wow Treyarch, way to suck up all that extra money.

  • Gamerazor247
  • The Flash

    so Xbox 360 gets it what May 5th? pathetic

    • DARTH MAUL

      Exactly! Cause 360 is pathetic, guess the suckers on you folks.

      • The Flash

        knew you’d be along at some point to hate

        • DARTH MAUL

          Oh don’t mind us, me and Hunter Zolomon just enjoying the PS4 life.

  • Xx_Qu1ckSc0perz_xX

    will it come to Xbox 360? Just asking.

    • DARTH MAUL

      Nah, 360s still shit even years of getting DLC first.

      • Xx_Qu1ckSc0perz_xX

        aw sad times. but 360 is way better than ps3.

        • DARTH MAUL

          awh, come now don’t be upset now that we get DLC first for the next 10 COD cycles or more.

          • Xx_Qu1ckSc0perz_xX

            i barely even buy the DLCs. only if theres a new gun with the DLC, then yes, but i can wait for them idm.

          • DARTH MAUL

            You’re right.. there should be a gun DLC but nah we have to BUY them in the supply drops. As a season pass holder, were only benefiting the new maps and zombies story.

        • GinsuVictim

          The 360 version is a lot better than the PS3 version. I have both. 360 actually runs really good after patches.

        • Hans Maulwurf

          fanboy detected

      • R Skse

        Why is it always the PS fags that start these petty ass console arguments?

        • DARTH MAUL

          Now if we look back 3 years ago I’m pretty sure you Xbox players had your condescending share to rub it in everyone’s face and be like “DLC first on Xbox! Woo #TeamXbox #FuckPlayStation”

          • R Skse

            95% of the time, everywhere i look, its always the PS fanboy talking shit first. Now i see why they say PS is the home of immature assholes. Well i said that, actually

          • DARTH MAUL

            And the other 5% was what? The PC players? Bullshit, you guys provoked us to argue over the console wars of getting DLC first.

          • R Skse

            I guess that must be true.. Your comment to Quickscoperz reeks of salty tears… years of salty tears

          • DARTH MAUL

            Quickscoperz?

          • R Skse

            “Nah, 360s still shit even years of getting DLC first.”

          • R Skse

            LMAO, this bitch changes his name and goes and cleans up all his dumbfuck crybaby posts here.. cmon man, no one cares – youre just another internet asshole

          • GinsuVictim

            Never acted that way myself. I thought both consoles should have it at the same time, especially since I play on both.

          • DARTH MAUL

            Now you my friend, deserve a cookie. Honestly it should be fair to everyone I don’t know why one console has more exclusivity than the other, it’s pointless.

          • R Skse

            FAG

    • GinsuVictim

      Yes

  • MichiganerE

    What?

  • Call Of Duty 2 4ever <3

    Is it possible to get refunds from black ops 3 digital deluxe edition? I have ps4

    • ALP1002

      Activison: no…

      • Call Of Duty 2 4ever <3

        Shame…

  • R Skse

    Oh i thought last Gen didnt get any kind of DLC

    • DARTH MAUL

      I swear they did say that too

      • R Skse

        Wipe your tears now last gen PS dog, Activision throws you a bone

        • DARTH MAUL

          Yeah I’m the last gen PS dog that owns a PS4 who hopes last gen doesn’t get DLC.

      • GinsuVictim

        They didn’t.

  • M

    Might aswell also give them the season pass if ps3 and 360 (i assume), aswell as nuk3town and the giant.

  • GinsuVictim

    I said how many times it would still come to last gen? Nice to be right.

  • Aziz Peregrino-Brimah

    I thought it was said that DLC wouldn’t be coming to last gen? Not that I care, but does this signal that money isn’t being made?

    • ALP1002

      hey, no one knows who beenox are they just make decent ports so of course they do that.

    • GinsuVictim

      Nope, didn’t say that.

      • shadowguy14

        Uh, yeah they did. Season Pass=DLC.
        Greedy Activision/Treyarch changed their minds. Just like with Supply Drops.

        • GinsuVictim

          They said no season pass, that says NOTHING about DLC at all.

      • Aziz Peregrino-Brimah

        Yes, they did. But then they JUST updated the article on the 29th of this month.

        “Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC will not be available on PS3 or Xbox 360”

        http://charlieintel.com/2015/12/18/black-ops-3-awakening-dlc-will-not-be-available-on-ps3-or-xbox-360/

        • GinsuVictim

          That article only states it wasn’t coming out at that time on last gen, but nowhere did it say it wasn’t coming at all.

          • Aziz Peregrino-Brimah

            I can’t further help you if you can’t understand the simplicity of their title. They said it was NOT coming. Otherwise why would they need to update an old article yesterday?

          • GinsuVictim

            You’re no help at all, so don’t worry about it.

  • RobMelchor

    Damn, BO3 in last gen is terrible. 🙁

    • GinsuVictim

      It’s certainly not perfect, but it’s far from terrible.

    • ALP1002

      hey that is kinda un true. the only bugs i ever encounter on ps3 is: 0.00000000000000000000000000000000000000000.

    • owaisy101

      i actually play it and it is very good, most bugs have actually been fixed in updates

    • RobMelchor

      You guys are in denial, it’s time to buy a current gen console.

  • dust&cheese

    in one moment they say the old consoles cannot handle the dimensions of the new DLC and therefore it won’t be supported; then the next moment when they realise how much money they will get from it, they say it’s now supported ! Anytime developers say the old consoles cannot handle a DLC I see right through it.

    • GinsuVictim

      They never said that. They just said there wouldn’t be a season pass. Before the release, they said last gen DLC news would be out sometime after release.

  • ALP1002

    finally, now i don’t look like an idiot for buying bo3 on ps3

    • Na, you’re still an idiot.

      • ALP1002

        so what if i don’t have 399€ and additional 60€ for the game + i have to pay for online.

      • Hans Maulwurf

        Well some people don’t get everything sponsored by daddy and mommy, maybe they live alone and have to pay all the bills by themselves. And how about insulting people when you stand in front of them if you can’t cowardly hide behind your monitor? Let’s see if you dare again if you insult the wrong person in real life and get beaten up!

        • Calm down man, it was just a joke. And I bought my PS4 with my own money. PS4 has been out since 2013, if you can’t even work a few jobs and save up $300 in 3 years then then yes, you’re an idiot.

  • ALP1002

    YASSSS

  • SilentNova

    Hmm interesting, I don’t remember hearing a high demand in last gen users wanting DLC. I guess there’s a good chunk of players on last gen?

    • GinsuVictim

      There are a ton, and of course we want DLC. I always want more MP maps.

    • Hans Maulwurf

      I own the PS3 version and the PC version of BO3 and I find more players on PS3 than on last gen. Ok CoD on PC is pretty dead so that shouldn’t surprise me
