Eclipse, the second DLC pack forÂ Call of Duty: Black Ops III,Â is now available on PlayStation 4. Xbox and other platforms will have to wait a while longer. PlayStation 4 gamers can get right into the action with four new multiplayer maps and an all new Zombies experience, which takes players to an undead island during World War II in the Pacific Theater in a new chapter of theÂ OriginsÂ saga.
âWe know that fans are playing the hell out of our current selection of multiplayer and Zombies maps, which is why we have been working so hard to deliver an epic new DLC offering with Eclipse,â said Studio Head at Treyarch: Mark Lamia.
Players can now dive intoÂ EclipseâsÂ four multiplayer maps:Â Knockout,Â Spire, Rift andÂ Verge;Â a re-imagining of theÂ Call of Duty: World at WarÂ classic,Â Banzai.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Knockout:Â Housed in a traditional Shaolin Temple with a retro twist, Knockout sets the stage for a Kung Fu tournament. This mid-sized map showcases a sharp contrast between the mid-range engagements of the traditional exterior architecture and the tight close-quarters of an eclectic 1970âs styled interior.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Spire: Spire takes multiplayer combat to a futuristic sub-orbital airport terminal set high in the clouds. Multiple levels and open areas promote intense, mid-range combat around a clean, high-tech civilian environment. Watch your step, because one wrong move could send you plummeting back through the stratosphere.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Rift: Players can head to the core of a harsh futuristic military complex, set high above an active caldera. Rift funnels and forces tight, intense engagements, where the only way through is forward. Players must utilise the unique core movement opportunities to outsmart and outplay enemies, as they traverse the suspended rail system.
Â·Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â VergeÂ In this re-imagination of the classicÂ Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai, Verge drops multiplayer combat into the centre of a distant post-apocalyptic future, where two warring factions are entrenched in constant battle. Players must take control of the key bridge, fortresses, tunnel systems and waterfalls as they engage in high-speed action through this medium-sized map.
EclipseÂ also introduces the next highly-anticipated Zombies experience: Zetsubou No Shima, the second instalment in theÂ Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies storyline that spans the four DLC Map Packs forÂ Black Ops IIIÂ this year.Â The OriginsÂ characters continue on their mission to stop the zombie apocalypse.Â The heroes find themselves stranded on a remote Pacific island, which is home to the Division 9 facility: a secret biological research lab who were experimenting with Element 115 and its effects on human, animal and plant biology has created true horrors. Zetsubou No Shima features a foliage-rich island map, including new zombie enemies, a variety of innovative transport mechanics, more devastating traps and classic Zombies side quests that fans will no doubt gravitate to.
EclipseÂ is available now at a discounted rate via theÂ Call of Duty: Black Ops IIIÂ DLC Season Pass, which features four DLC Map Packs planned for the year, as part of the discounted bundle.
