Earlier today, Treyarch and Activision released the first official preview trailer from their upcoming Awakening DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Awakening includes four new action-packed multiplayer maps and the first chapter of their popular zombies storyline mode. The trailer is conveniently embedded above with more info on each map below.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Call of Duty: Blacks Ops 3 Awakening is part of the season pass and launches as timed DLC for PS4 owners on February 2nd. The content will then debut on the Xbox One and PC the following month. Xbox 360 and PS3 owners won’t have access to any of this content.
