Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC Titled “Descent” Now Available

Call of Duty: Black Ops III, one of the most well known games available on the current generation of consoles, has released a new DLC.

SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Descent, the third DLC pack for Call of Duty®: Black Ops III, the best-selling console video game on next generation platforms, is available today, first on PlayStation 4 with other next-gen platforms to follow. Published by Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) and developed by Treyarch, Call of Duty®: Black Ops III Descent, takes players across the globe to four new multiplayer locales and an all-new Zombies experience in the classic Origins saga.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Descent comes packed with four new multiplayer maps that offer fans non-stop run and gun action in a cryogenic penitentiary, a Viking hamlet, a robot death-match arena and a contemporary reconstruction of an ancient Roman estate:

Empire: Fan favorite map Raid returns, re-imagined in this classic, medium-sized map as an authentic Roman villa, where a classic map structure mixes with the new gameplay mechanics of Black Ops III.

Berserk: A Viking village frozen in time enlists players to fight through blizzards, for control of the center bridge. This medium-sized map features wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings, and tight chokepoints.

Cryogen: Located far in the Dead Sea, this isolated compound holds some of the world’s most dangerous criminals in frozen isolation. Sentry towers keep watch over the small map’s circular design as frenetic combat and wall running attacks abound.

Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanized warriors in this medium-sized map, which funnels high-speed combat to the central arena, where players battle their way through fallen mechs and pyrotechnics.

Descent will send players into an alternate timeline of Stalingrad as part of the newest chapter of the Origins Zombie plot line. Players will combat swarms of mecha-zombies while trying to avoid the dragons that control the skies all while in the midst of a raging battle with Nikolai’s motherland. The DLC will also come with a dynamic theme based on Gorod Krovi.

Descent is will become immediately available for those who purchased the season pass for $49.99. Descent can be purchased individually for $15.
