Today, we’re excited to share the news that the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Awakening Map Pack is coming to PlayStation 3. Launching on Tuesday, April 5, Awakening introduces four new multiplayer maps and an all-new zombies experience: Der Eisendrache.

Awakening delivers four new multiplayer maps for fans on the previous generation of consoles, including the return of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 fan-favorite, Hijacked, reimagined for Black Ops 3 as Skyjacked. Learn more  about the new maps below:

  • Skyjacked: High above urban Zurich, Skyjacked is a modernized version of the popular Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 multiplayer map Hijacked. Utilizing the new core movement system featured in Black Ops 3, this map gives players new ways to explore the environment, while still retaining the same fast and frenetic gameplay players love.
  • Splash: Dive into battle in this abandoned water park, featuring a vibrant and colorful environment, including waterslides, a wrecked pirate ship and a lazy river. Splash encourages an open flow of combat with opportunities for underwater gameplay.
  • Gauntlet: Delivering three unique environments within one action-packed map, Gauntlet showcases Treyarch's classic three-lane map structure, transporting players into battle through a sprawling jungle, sub-zero arctic zone and rainy urban cityscape.
  • Rise: A versatile multiplayer map, Rise is set in the snowy outskirts of Zurich in the middle of an ongoing construction site for a massive subterranean Coalescence research campus. With multiple engagement areas throughout this larger map, each section caters to different styles of gameplay.

For zombies fans, there’s Der Eisendrache. Set in a chilling medieval Austrian castle during World War II, Der Eisendrache features Origin characters Richtofen, Nikolai, Takeo, and Dempsey as they unravel the horrors that occurred there and battle waves of the undead.

Awakening will be available for purchase as a standalone map pack for a suggested retail price of $14.99 on PS3. What’s more, anyone who purchases Awakening for PS3 will receive an Awakening static theme.
