Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s First Expansion Arrives, First on PS4 Preview

Today’s the day. Call of Duty: Black Ops III‘s first expansion, Awakening, launched today, February 2, on PS4. The expansion comes with four multiplayer maps and one for Zombies.

The four multiplayer maps are Skyjacked (a re-imagining of Call of Duty: Black Ops II’s Hijacked), Splash, Gauntlet, and Rise. The Zombies map is called Der Eisendrache; it picks up where The Giant left off.

Awakening is included with Black Ops III’s $ 50 DLC pass, which also comes with three further expansions to launch in the future. Alternatively, you can buy Awakening alone for $ 15.

You can queue up your Awakening download from the PlayStation Store website right here.

“Treyarch’s commitment to our fans with Awakening, and all season long, is to keep delivering you the goods,” Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia said in a statement. “Great times lay ahead for players of Black Ops III, with both finely crafted new maps and reimagined multiplayer classics. And for Zombies fans…your commitment to us pays off all season long, starting with Der Eisendrache.”

Awakening launches first on PS4 as part of a timed-exclusivity agreement between Sony and Activision. The expansion will come to Xbox One and PC sometime later.
