Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ) is launching a new DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. “Salvation,” the first real expansion of the game, will finally be released on September 6 for the PlayStation 4.
Sony scored some points with its fanbase by fast-tracking the DLC, but Microsoft hasn’t confirmed a release date for the expansion on the Xbox or PC.
Activision published the first full-length trailer on the official Call of Duty Youtube channel, as well as a press release from the publisher where it gave details about the new multiplayer maps coming to Black Ops 3.
48 hours before Activision’s official trailer, the company released four teasers for the Salvation DLC on Twitter. They included map descriptions for the new battlegrounds coming for the FPS and an extended preview of the upcoming final Zombies map.
Salvation will be the last entry of the story of Richtofen, Takeo, and Nikolai.
As seen in the trailer, “Revelation,” the single player campaign, will put players on the role of the original characters in another time-travel adventure to defeat Doctor Monty in ‘The House’ and save their souls.
Salvation will feature four new multiplayer maps
The Citadel is an ancient castle that was once home of a powerful medieval army. It will feature tight corners, close quarter engagements, and little open space. A moat and a drawbridge allow a different gaming experience in this mid-sized map.
Micro map is a miniature war zone themed on a family picnic table. Players will navigate a bite-size war field, across the BBQ and the sodas in a battle for their lives.
Outlaw is a western-style showdown in BO3. It re-imagines a fan favorite of Black Ops 2, the Standoff map. This medium-sized map has a more classic approach, allowing flanking strategies, precise positioning, and long range shooting.
The Rupture map is the reboot of “The Call of Duty: World at War” Outskirts scenario. It portraits a high- tech facility designed by a futuristic society that aims to heal the Earth’s atmosphere.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Salvation price and release date
Other players can buy the expansion separately for $15. Salvation is ready for pre-orders on the PlayStation store. Fans who aim to buy all the DLCs can do it for a $50 payment for the bundle.
The content marks the fourth add-on of the game and the official end of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Activision is gearing up to launch the next big title in the franchise by 4th November 2016.
Next week Activision will host the annual Call of Duty XP event, the franchise’s World Championship previews on the upcoming releases, news and more.
