London, UK – 18 th February 2016 – The first DLC map pack for the number one top-selling video game of 2015, Call of Duty®: Black Ops III Awakening from Activision Publishing, Inc. and developer Treyarch, is available now on PlayStation 4 and is coming to Xbox One and PC on 3 rd March, 2016*.

DLC 1: Awakening features:

•    Skyjacked : High above urban Zurich, Skyjacked is a modernised version of the popular Call of Duty®: Black Ops II multiplayer map Hijacked. Utilising the new core movement system featured in Black Ops III, this map gives players new ways to explore the environment, while still retaining the same fast and frenetic gameplay players love.

•    Splash : Dive into battle in this abandoned water park, featuring a vibrant and colourful environment, including waterslides, a wrecked pirate ship and a lazy river. Splash encourages an open flow of combat with opportunities for underwater gameplay.

•    Gauntlet : Delivering three unique environments within one action-packed map, Gauntlet showcases Treyarch’s classic three-lane map structure, transporting players into battle through a sprawling jungle, sub-zero arctic zone and rainy urban cityscape.

•    Rise: A versatile multiplayer map, Rise is set in the snowy outskirts of Zurich in the middle of an ongoing construction site for a massive subterranean Coalescence research campus.  With multiple engagement areas throughout this larger map, each section caters to different styles of gameplay.

Awakening also introduces the first chapter of Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s Zombies DLC adventure, with Der Eisendrache picking up where The Giant left off.  Set in a chilling medieval Austrian castle during World War II, players will embark on an epic four-part journey with the Origin characters Richtofen, Nikolai, Takeo and Dempsey, spanning the DLC season.  The ancient site on which the castle sits was the scene of unspeakable horror where massive deposits of Element 115 have recently been discovered.  Players will discover a variety of exciting plot twists and surprises as they survive waves of the undead. 

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Awakening DLC Map Pack is available at a discounted rate via the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Season Pass**, which features all four DLC Map Packs planned for the year, as part of the discounted bundle.  Call of Duty: Black Ops III is rated PEGI 18.
