Get that meat-grinder ready.
We are one week away from the release of more 'Call of Duty: Black Ops III' on the PS4 and with the 'Eclipse' content pack comes a new Zombies episode, 'Zetsubou No Shima.' That means that it is time to peek at our Origins' characters predicament.
Today's first look include several of the new maps traps and other little secrets, and the apparent results would seem to do credit to the CoD zombies heritage.
'Eclipse' also includes four new multiplayer maps: Spire, Rift, Knockout; and Verge.
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.
Rift: 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. Utilize the unique core movement opportunities to outsmart and outplay enemies as you traverse the suspended rail system.
Knockout: Housed in a traditional Shaolin Temple with a retro twist, Knockout sets the stage for a bloody 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 1970's styled interior.
Verge: In this re-imagination of the classic Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai, Verge drops Multiplayer combat into the center of a distant post-apocalyptic future, where two warring factions are entrenched in constant battle. Take control of the key bridge, fortresses, tunnel systems and waterfalls as you engage in high-speed action through this medium-sized map
'Eclipse' can be purchased on its own (as a DLC pack) or as part of the season pass. With 'Eclipse' coming to the PS4 on April 19th, that means that Xbox One and PC players should be thinking late May or early June. Right now, the PS3 and 360 are not due to get a version of 'Eclispe,' but that may change as it did for 'Awakening' and the PS3.
