This weekend, we’re giving all fans on PlayStation 4 a chance to check out Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Awakening DLC map pack for free* for a limited time. Beginning Friday, April 1 at 10:00am PDT and through Monday, April 4 at 10:00am PDT, anyone playing Black Ops 3 on PS4 can play Awakening’s mind-bending Zombies experience, Der Eisendrache, and four new multiplayer maps: Gauntlet, Splash, Rise, and the reimagined fan-favorite from Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Skyjacked.

Best of all, if you’ve installed the latest update to Black Ops 3 on your PS4, you’re ready to go.  Just jump into the Zombies menu and select Der Eisendrache from the map selection screen and you’re ready to start dispatching the undead in the Austrian Alps. To check out the new multiplayer maps, it’s as simple as jumping into the Awakening playlist or your preferred-mode-specific playlist from the Multiplayer menu—Awakening’s maps will automatically show up in the rotation.

To kick off the free Awakening multiplayer weekend on PS4, Treyarch will also be activating Double XP and Double Weapon XP all weekend long across all platforms.
