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

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Descent DLC Pack 3 features four new multiplayer maps, including a remake of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2’s Raid, and the next chapter in the Black Ops 3 Zombies saga, Gorod Krovi.

Multiplayer Maps: 

  • Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops III movement system to the Call of Duty®: Black Ops II fan favorite 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. Watch the preview video here.
  • 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. Watch the preview video here.
  • Berserk: Ancient sentinels from a lost civilization guard the entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time. Players will fight through blizzards, and control the center bridge as they navigate this medium-sized map’s wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings, and tight chokepoints. Watch the preview video here.
  • Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanized 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. Watch the preview video here.


  • Gorod Krovi: Descent also thrusts players 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 mechanized 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. Watch the gameplay trailer here.

    I dont feel the need to buy this map pack or any map pack in bo3 as i felt in bo2 or the cod games before that….these just got boring

    • lunator100hd .

      Bo3 is way better than bo2 but this is just my opinion.

    • Gorod Krovi is best zombies map in bo3

    So I played all the maps last night…
    Berserk is hands down my favorite in the map pack. I do really well on that map.
    Empire is obviously my second favorite. It feels great to play Raid again.
    Cryogen is a lot of fun. I really like it, and I’m torn between this map and Rumble.
    Rumble is a ton of fun, but it’s not as hectic as everyone says it is.

    I love all of the maps.

  • Gorod Krovi hands down best zombie map in Black Ops 3 so far. Reminds me so much of Mob of the Dead in so many ways AND WE ACTUALLY GOT A ZOMBIE MAP WHERE YOU CAMP AND DEFEND! What??? A Treyarch zombie map in 2016 promoting camping and defending? I love it

    • Siftblade

      I train on GK lol

    • Former

      You can camp in any map though.

      • OBVIOUSLY. You can train and camp in any map. I get that. Maybe you should try and understand my point a little bit before making an obvious statement.

        What I was getting at is that Treyarch hasn’t really designed a zombie map with a classic layout in WaW since like Mob of the Dead and or Buried. Every other map in BO2 and BO3 pretty much promotes training. Hell, Moon promotes the hell out of training, and Call of the Dead pretty much forces you to train.

        Gorod Krovi has that design of camping and defending. Just holding down an area just like a map like The Giant would.

        • Former

          Damn, you really do get butthurt after anyone says anything remotely critical of your comments. You need to work on that, bud.

          Maps don’t “promote” one or the other. The Giant has several open training spots, but also a catwalk. Mob of the dead had a CIRCULAR room with a shield location AND a trap right inside of it…and you’re saying the map promotes camping? What?

          • Where did I get butthurt? Because if I recall, I wasn’t butthurt at all. I was saying it’s obvious you can camp or train in a zombie map. You obviously didn’t get my point, so I further explained my point. That’s not butthurt. So if you’re going to throw butthurt like you’re some 12 year old, then by all means go ahead. This isn’t my first encounter with you where you completely act like a dumbass and completely miss my point because of your lack of skills when it comes to reading.

            And yeah Treyarch does promote certain play styles in their map and I’m not saying it’s bad, i just prefer a classic holding down an area map like The Gaint and Gorod Krovi. And Yes maps likes The Giant and Gorod Krovi clearly promote camping LOL. Uhh the catwalk? The house? Of course you can still train, but you’ll be better off camping.

            I’ll put it to you like this, if you’re playing a map like Origins which one are you most likely going to do? Camp or train?

          • Former

            “Maybe you should try and understand my point a little bit before making an obvious statement” <—Snide remarks such as that show you are butthurt.

            The Giant ALSO has two very open training spots, which are necessary if you want to get to higher rounds. Have you seen a world record where the guy was camping on a catwalk? Don't think so.

            Origins? It depends on the person. You can wedge yourself in a corner and constantly spam the ice staff at your feet until a very high round. However, you can also train in pretty much any tank path, or Agartha (preferably after removing the pillars).

            There endless amounts of training AND camping spots on every map in zombies history. Please list one and I'll be happy to break it down for you.

          • That doesn’t show that I’m butthurt at all. If you actually took offense to that, then I feel so sorry for you. You should really grow up and probably grow a pair of balls.

            I also have stated numerous times you can both camp and train on almost any map. That’s pretty fucking obvious. I also don’t care about some world record on YouTube or leaderboards as I’m speaking from an average Joe. So that point youre making is utterly useless.

            As fair as Origins no. I think that map is pretty much designed for training. And really? Lol, really? Your suggesting is to take an ice staff and wedge yourself in a spot and thats camping? Really? What a sorry excuse of a point LOL.

            Maps like Call of the Dead, Moon, Zetsubo, Origins are mainly desgined for training. Sure you can still camp, but it wont be good.

            Ascension is the only map I have seen that caters to both play styles equally.

            But of course I’m mainly talking about playing in a team of 4. In solo, you’re going to have to train eventually becausing camping in solo has really never been a good idea unless you’re playing Buried

          • Former

            Never said that I took offense, actually. Good try, though.

            Even if you are an average Joe, you’re better off training if you actually want to get better at zombies. Who wants to camp on a catwalk, die at ~25-30, then rinse and repeat? That play style is what makes people despise zombies because it’s too repetitive.

            Suggestion? No. Camping with the Ice Staff is actually the fastest method to get past early rounds. Whoops, I forgot that you’re an “Average Joe, ” so you clearly have no idea what a strategy is.

            Zetsubou you can also camp with the KT4 to get to rounds 70+…Look it up on YT if you don’t believe me. Origins, you can camp in pretty much any tunnel with all 4 players and survive very long, considering how OP the staffs are.

            If you are actually good at zombies, you would see that training is by far the best option on ANY map, regardless of what you think the map is “promoting.” Of course looking from the perspective of a casual, camping is the best option because you’re not trying to go past round 30 and because they’d die in 5 minutes trying to horde zombies up.

          • Wasn’t really a nice try, if you call that getting butthurt then I advise getting thicker skin.

            Lol Campimg is repetitive yet traning isn’t? LOL. You can’t be serious LOL

            As far as your other crap goes, I have actually gotten to the 40s with a team of 4 camping. So acting like training is the only way is extremely false. You’re so retarded it blows my mind. The fact you actually think training is like the only strategy is then you say I dont know anything lol.

            Dude, please for the love of God, learn how to read. Get a better understanding on things, and don’t be so narrow minded kid

          • Former

            Pointing out that someone is butthurt has no implication of that person’s feelings. Again, nice try.

            Ah, here it is. The inevitable “sXeGreatness” hostility. When someone starts to prove you wrong, your last line of defense is to call them retarded. I guess that’s what I’d resort to if I was too slow to keep up.

            Round 40! Wow, I’m so proud! But what happens when you run out of ammo while camping? You are forced to train and use a wall weapon or use traps. Those are your ONLY options. (Or, in your case, sit there and die because the map isn’t “designed” for you to get off your ass and move around.)

          • You arent proving me wrong in anything lol. Like every other time I have had a conversation with you, you clearly take something I said and take it the wrong and completely miss everything in what I’m trying to say or what my point is.
            And look I get it, you’re not the sharpest knife, i understand. You’re a bit retarded. I don’t judge.

            And your last point, i cant even just lol. I would sit here and just take that apart. But you’re so fucking retarded it would go over your head.

          • Former

            Pick apart what? The fact that you need to train when you’re out of ammo? That’s common knowledge, dude. With each reply, you’re simply proving just how casual you really are. It’s always the casual kids on Charlie Intel that have the largest mouths.

          • You’re calling me a casual…on Charlie Intel…which is about Call of Duty…which is the most fucking casual fucking first person shooter game on the market. Are you literally fucking stupid

          • Former

            There are casual players, not casual games. There wouldn’t be a 2 million dollar tournament for a “casual” game anyway. Just accept that you’re garbage at CoD, Mr. “Average Joe”

          • LOL yeah you really are fucking stupid. I’m honestly dying at this point. Call of Duty, not a casual game….right HAHAHA

            I don’t know how you take my original comment which was a positive comment and praising the hell out of Gorod Krovi to “ur jus trash bcuz u dont train xD”

            Please, go jump off a bridge and I’m not saying that ironically. Please do it

          • Former

            I don’t know how you take simple criticism of your point to calling me a retard 4 times. You’re literally a child who can’t accept another person’s viewpoint. It shows in EVERY single argument I see you in.

          • No, i started to insult you at least a few replies after you replied to me. You literally sat there and try to say I didn’t know anything than to “you dont get off your ass because you camp” literally trashing my play style. When the entire time, I wasn’t saying anything bad, I literally praised Treyarch for making a zombie map with a nice fucking layout to way they used to design zombies. Camping, defending, surviving.

            I don’t have anything against your opinion, you think Treyarch caters towards everyone and you like training. That’s cool. That’s your opinion and what not.

            Like I said, I insulted you because one, you’re not very bright, two, you completely take what i say the wrong way.

            I have had plenty of discussions up here that are disagreements and i have never insulted them. The best person I can bring up here is Brady. Him and I have disagreements all the time. He understands my points, I understand his and we have Good discussions.

            You on the other hand, you’re just fucking stupid

          • Former

            Until you can form an argument without resorting to childish insults, you’ll always bring ZERO worth to any debate you partake in, because even if you ARE right, nobody will notice. All they will see is an asshole.

            Also, Brady is one of the most deluded people on here, so it’s no surprise you two get along. He literally just typed me an essay about how good and bad players shouldn’t exist.

          • Ouch man. Well, as you soon as you start school and you get some reading skills going on, I’ll actually take you seriously in an argument. Maybe you wouldnt come off as some retarded child in the points you’re making. I know everyone doesn’t exactly have a common sense, but maybe you’ll actually get one soon enough.

            It’s also a bit funny of you to call someone delusional when you think Call of Duty isn’t a causal game, but hey, it that’s what you believe then by all means, kiddo LOL

          • Former

            Jesus, at least add some creativity to your insults if that’s the life you want to live. “lern 2 read u stupid retard LOL” Sums you up in one sentence.

          • I don’t feel the need to be creative in a comment section talking to a stranger on the internet LOL

            Plus why waste my time to be creative in my comments to some retard who lacks any common sense? You’re just asking me to go the extra mile for nothing. Don’t worry, I like to take it easy on people like you. I don’t want your brain to explode or anything.

          • Former

            Still trying to insult me? That’s cute.

          • I wasn’t trying. I genuinely think you’re retarded

          • Former

            Still at it, 5 hours later. Bravo.

          • Lol wow, you can count how long it took me to reply. At least you’re getting some where.

          • Former

            “Some where” Oh the irony

          • oh man i put a space, you totally got me. what will i ever do

          • Former

            Continue to wait for my replies because your parents neglected you as a child. That’s a good guess, I think.

          • I’m not waiting on anything. I see a notification, click on it, then i see I got a reply and I reply back. It’s ironic you’re saying that because you’re literally doing the samething.

            It’s literally just like going on an online match and playing then you scream into the mic “lol u got no life ” yet you’re doing the samething as everyone else in the game.

            Congratulations, you proved that you’re that kid and you also proved once again that you lack any common sense.

          • Former

            I find it odd you deem me a “retard”, yet you’re so engrossed in the conversation. Surely if your intelligence is so much greater than mine, you wouldn’t be wasting your time continuing this. Thus, you have contradicted yourself. Once again, bravo.

          • I didn’t contradict anything LOL once again you show me how completely stupid you are. I’m not engrossed in anything. If you’re going to reply to me, chances are I’m going to reply back, if you’re going to make idiotic statements, chances are I’m going to reply back and make fun of you.

            I mean you aren’t smart at all, doesn’t mean I’m not going to talk to you. I’m a nice guy, I’ll talk to anyone even if you have a brain of a retarded child. Like I said, I don’t judge 🙂

          • Former

            Each reply is only solidifying the contradiction. Please, continue to prove me right.

          • You haven’t been proven right in anything lol. You have actually been wrong than you have right. So instead you come back with this half assed replies. It’s pretty great.

            But hey, anything to feed your delusion, kiddo

          • Former

            …and continue..

          • >Training
            >call of duty isn’t a casual game
            >Why u replying me
            >somehow proving right

          • Former

            Now you:
            >LOL ur retarded and stupid and dumb LOL
            That’s about it.

          • Oh i got one better
            “Hi, my name is Former and reading isnt my greatest skill, but dont worry, that doesnt stop me from being a total retard. While I miss other people’s points, and lack any understanding of other people’s POV, i just completely blow it off because im narrow minded as fuck and like i said before, i dont know how to read. LOL IM RIGHT. YOU GOT CONTRADICTION BRO”

          • Former

            “Narrow minded” Says the guy who calls 95% of people who disagree with him a retard. You may want to buy a dictionary as well as hire someone to read it to you.

          • Yet, the only people who I find myself insulting is you. So i guess in away that made up statistic of yours could be correct. Because I also stated before, I have no problem with disagreements as I have had plenty of great conversations in here in the three years I have been commenting here.

            I just have a low tolerance for stupidity such as people like you.

            Funny, how you tell me to get a dictionary yet you’re the one here with reading problems, LOL

          • Former

            Another contradiction. If you’re arguing with someone stupid, you will realize they’re stupid early on, thus discontinuing the conversation. Because, if you’re on a different wavelength than the other person, there is no argument to begin with. It’s like trying to argue with a wall.

            However, with me, you use name-calling as a crutch to whip out whenever it’s needed. “Oh damn, this guy is actually providing some logical points….better call him a retard. That’ll end any pro-activity to the discussion real quickly, while ceasing the need for me to provide anything meaningful, myself. Perfect!”

          • Right, and that’s no fun. And I like fun, i like insulting you because you really are stupid. If a person is stupid, I’m going to let them know. That’s not a contradiction. That’s not me contradicting myself in anyway, i dont think you know what that word even means.

            Also, you didn’t prove me wrong in anyway. As my original post was opinionated and me praising a map. So you can’t really be wrong or right there. As far as Treyarch and designs of the map, That’s up for debate. I think some maps are designed for camping and some for training. My point was that Gorod Krovi was good because of that WaW olf school design.

            The fact you think you’re correct makes me laugh.

          • Former

            The original topic of debate is long gone. The conclusion to that is simply that we see it from two entirely different perspectives. You from the “Average Joe,” casual view (which isn’t a bad thing so don’t get all defensive on me) and I from the strategic, high-round view.

            What I’m trying to point out to you now is that your constant name-calling is your crutch. That is why for the past 10 or so replies, you continue to insult me. You’ve got to stay consistent now or else you’ll look bad.

            Notice how I can immediately switch to an adult conversational tone. I’d like you to prove you can do that, or this conversation really is going nowhere.

          • But yet you fail to realize i have no problem with training and i don’t mind doing it what do ever. I have been playing zombies since World at War, so obviously I’m more old school in terms of play style. Such as camping and defending an area. So when I see map like Gorod Krovi I’m gonna love it.

            As far as a crutch, no. Name calling isn’t my crutch. It’s simple math really. You act stupid + miss my entire point = you get insulted. Notice how in my first few replies i did not name call you anything, but after a few more replies of you not getting my point I had enough.

            I also don’t need you to prove to me that i can do something as I have plenty conversations up here that let me repeat myself, that were disagreements and everything was fine.

            You on the other hand, I really dont mind talking to you or you disagreeing with me but the minute you keep misunderstanding my point over and over, I’m just going to insult you. You act stupid, you get called stupid. Simple. Nothing more, nothing less.

          • Former

            But you have realize that the very moment you start name-calling, it removes any civility to the conversation. Think about that the next time you want to insult someone. Simply telling them nicely, “you seem to have misunderstood my point” without the addition of “retard” afterward would go a long way, not just with me but with any future discussion.

            Refer exactly to whichever point I supposedly misunderstood, because frankly, I’ve forgotten.

          • But yet you called me butthurt right to start with.

            You act stupid, you get called stupid. Simple. As i said numerous times.

            I dont care if it removes anything, if you say something stupid, you said something stupid.

            Plus, I dont need your advice about anything, so dont waste your time with it.

          • Former

            Calling someone butthurt is not an insult. Everyone get’s butthurt sometimes, it’s okay.

            Also, you’ve failed to tell me the precious point that I apparently misunderstood. I would tell you “learn 2 read my comments retard” but I won’t stoop to your level.

          • You’re on some higher level yet you have called me butthurt and insulted me as well. Lol.

            Get off your high horse because honestly it’s cute that you’re think you’re some mature grand person. I love it lol.

            But anyway, when it came to my original point, I praised Gorod Krovi for it’s WaW type design, now of course you can somehow manage to camp or train on almost any map. I have always understood that and got that. But I believe some maps are designed better for training and some are better for camping. Now if you believe Treyach caters to everyone, that’s cool and that’s on you. I was never here to argue anything that was opinion based to begin with. All i did was praise Gorod Krovi for having that classic design and that good ol camping and defending. And boy, don’t get me started on that pack a punch room in Gorod Krovi. Easily one of the best fucking thing in zombies. Love that lockdown event. Now that really brought back that WaW feel. I wish Treyarch made more maps like Gorod Krovi in terms of design and how simple it is.

          • Former

            I never claimed I was a “mature, grand person.” Those are your words, not mine. Compared to you, however, it’s quite obvious who’s being the childish one.

            *cough* “Retard! LOL” *cough*

            You still never pointed out which one of your ideas I misunderstood. I realize you were praising the map, but then we started arguing whether or not Treyarch caters to each play style equally, which we obviously disagreed on.

            Please tell me when exactly, between those two events, I “misunderstood” you. I mean…having an argument in general implies a misunderstanding…but that’s on both ends, obviously.

            I’m just trying to get to the bottom of your reasoning here, because it looks to me like YOU don’t even know.

          • I wouldn’t say you would be mature around here considering you used the word butthurt. But hey, maybe if you weren’t so retarded like I said, I wouldn’t call you retarded. Just saying.

            And trying get the bottom of what exactly? You literally went out your way to try and prove me wrong on something that was completely opinion based anyway. I literally explained to you in the beginning that I understand and get that you can train on maps like Mob of the Dead and The Giant, and so on and so on. I honestly think you have some obsession in trying to prove me wrong in something and no matter what it hasn’t worked out for you lol.

          • Former

            You do realize that anything arguable is opinion based, right? That’s literally the definition of an argument: a clashing of opinions. So you using that as reasoning for how I’m somehow in the wrong or I’m “misunderstanding” you is a complete and utter cop-out.

            “Trying to prove me wrong in something” <—- Again, another way to define an argument. It takes 2 to have an argument, and you were the other person, in case you forgot. So keep playing the victim card and pretending I'm out to get you when you acted in the same manner.

          • I’m not using a cop out on anything actually and what you said, I understand and get that. But this entire time you have been focused on trying to prove me wrong on something which is just opinion based. Like I said numerous times, have nothing against the conversation itself or your different opinion. But you’re honestly trying way too hard on something that literally is just my opinion lol

            And victim card ? I have no victim card. The proof is literally in this argument. You’re trying way too hard and it’s honestly pathetic. I dunno whether to feel sad for you or laugh at you.

            And hypocrisy eh? LOL i dont even want to get started there with you.
