The first downloadable content pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Awakening, is available now on Xbox One and PC.

The season begins with DLC 1 Awakening. Get 4 all-new MP maps: Skyjacked, Splash, Rise and Gauntlet, taking players from the snowy outskirts of Zurich to a colorful abandoned water theme park, as well as the next chapter in Zombies. Set in an eerie medieval castle, the Origins cast of Richtofen, Nicolai, Takeo, and Dempsey, picks up where The Giant left off and head to ‘Der Eisendrache’ on a mission to stop the Zombie Apocalypse.

Awakening DLC pack brings four multiplayer maps — Rise, Splash, Gauntlet, and Skyjacked — and a 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. Checkout the preview trailer here.
  • 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. Checkout the preview trailer here.
  • 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. Checkout the preview trailer here.
  • 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. Checkout the preview trailer here.


  • 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 and surprises that fans will have the opportunity to discover for themselves.

    • ToonToons22

      I know. If Activision cares so much about the money, they should at least know by now that doing away with exclusivity will bring in more supporters and more money to stuff in their wallets. No one deserves to suffer the effects of exclusivity. Not Xbox, not PlayStation.

    • Al True Trax

      Lmao o please half of you are trying to uninstall it who cares it’s trash

  • having fun with this new dlc! only thing that is annoying is seeing Splash way too often. The Zombie experience is phenomenal like always.

    GG Treyarch <3

  • RdJokr

    DLC doesn’t come on PC for another 5 hours or so… And it’s gonna be midnight when it drops for me.

    Oh well, I’m unemployed anyway. Time for some midnight zombie slaying action!

  • spartanelite


  • beamer

    7am PST and map pack is live. Just played skyjacked like 8 times 🙁

  • Stefan Lang

    Based off playing this morning Gauntlet played really slow even in a full lobby on Uplink. Not sure if it was the spawns or the enemy team was just afraid but it felt like a match on Stonehaven in Ghosts. Skyjacked is pretty good but the outer boat wall run spot on the left side of the A Flag spawn is pretty cancerous, a lot of people use it

    • madshooterguy

      this always happens on the first week of dlc launch. People don’t really know the map so yeah

      • Stefan Lang

        I figured they watched some gameplay though. I knew it fairly well.

        • madshooterguy

          Back when xbox had the exclusivity deal, I never watched dlc gameplay cuz it would “ruin” the experience

  • Aidan

    Well this sucks. You can only hop in core mosh pit and nothing else. I’ve been hardcore with my friends since December and now whenever I play core I do complete ass.

  • Robbie Beutlich

    Don’t waste your money! Only one playlist for the new maps ( uplink,safeguard) last time I checked no one even played those games types…an it’s laggy games a joke give us what we payed for an stop being cheap. Better games going to sweep bo3 off its feet.. Division beta in itself kind of did. Activisiion thinks like this Money> Customer Don’t forget who made that company the consumer/ customers you owe us !

    • YoungMurf

      Is the maps not available in all game modes?

    • Slothigans

      I’m pretty sure the maps are in regular rotation like they did with ps4.

  • BHCMax

    why is new dlc not available in HC mode? ffs

  • Michael Owen Caffrey
