To promote Call of Duty: Black Ops 3‘s forthcoming Eclipse expansion pack, Activision and Treyarch release a launch trailer highlighting the DLC’s multiplayer action.
With Call of Duty: Black Ops 3‘s Eclipse DLC hitting PlayStation 4 tomorrow, April 19, 2016, developers for the futuristic first-person shooter have officially put out a trailer detailing each of the add-on’s multiplayer stages, showing a variety of ways in which players can ratchet up their battles by using the game’s fast-paced movement system. Naturally, the footage covers all four of Eclipse’s new maps, including Spire, Knockout, Rift, and Verge, the final of which is a remake of World at War‘s Banzai map.
Although PlayStation fans will be getting first dibs on the second installment in this year’s planned expansions for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, it shouldn’t be too long before other platforms get the materials. As it happens, the wait period for the game’s Awakening DLC was about a month, and fans on both PC and Xbox One went on to receive all that PS4 players did.
As seen in the trailer below, Black Ops 3 fans will be taking on their opponents in a tournament arena in the style of a sprawling martial arts dojo, a tribal compound ravished by the effects of a post-apocalyptic fallout, a civilian sub-orbital airport with plenty of futuristic trappings, and a military rail system precariously placed above an active volcano. Taking all of these spots into account, it would be hard for anyone to argue that the developers didn’t put forth an effort to make the locations stand out from one another.
Although most fans will make a beeline toward the multiplayer maps, the Eclipse expansion for Black Ops 3 will also contain an all-new Zombies mode known as Zetsubou No Shima. For those unaware, Zetsubou No Shima follows the events of Der Eisendrache, with the Origins characters becoming stranded on a remote Pacific island, which happens to house a biological research lab that experiments with Element 115. With this in mind, players should expect to encounter tons of fresh enemies, traps, and side quests.
Should all of the assets for Black Ops 3‘s Eclipse seem appealing, fans will be able to purchase the expansion by itself for $15. Those who already put down money for the game’s Season Pass will receive the DLC at no additional cost.
Considering the fact that Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has been able to maintain a high position within the gaming industry’s software sales charts—it took the number nine slot to be one of the best selling games of March 2016, for instance—Eclipse’s release will surely help the first-person shooter preserve its top ten status for a couple of months at least. And with two more DLC packages planned for this year, Black Ops 3 will likely continue to sell well for the rest of 2016 and beyond.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
