Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops III's second DLC pack, Eclipse, will release on the 19th of April on PS4. It will become available on Xbox One and PC sometime in mid-May.
Eclipse includes four brand new multiplayer maps: Spire, Rift, Knockout and Verge. It also introduces the next chapter in the Black Ops III Zombies saga: Zetsubou No Shima. This chapter sees Treyarch's Origins characters facing new threats on a World War II-era Pacific island and introduces new transport mechanics, devastating traps, and classic Zombies side quests.
Here's what you can expect from each of the multiplayer maps:
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. Utilise 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 centre 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.
Players that purchased the Season Pass can download this DLC for free. As for everyone else, the 'Eclipse' DLC will be available for $14.99/£11.59/â‚¬14.49.
