  1. I have an idea for a bo3 map a multiplayer map called system core or maybe just even core and it takes place in the central simulation where our multilayer characters have advanced to and in the map it could be really dynamic like the map could be constantly changing and breaking apart because we’re about to complete the simulation and the neuro interface is getting disconnected this would be cool for a last DLC idea

  2. This comment killed me on youtube ?? Disclaimer: free trial for awakening is only available through supply drops

  3. The new maps are garbage at best. The only redeeming quality is zombies. Maybe 3 or 5 people will buy the DLC after this trial, the others will just stop playing and sell the game.

  4. When they say all players, I wonder if they include those without PS+. Anyone know? Or is this nothing more than a simple double xp weekend for those who already bought the DLC?

  5. Does this mean it will be free to those without PS+ also? Or does this simply mean people who already bought the dlc just get a double XP weekend as normal? Anyone know?
