Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Salvation DLC Dated, detailed in New Trailer

Activision has unveiled the final DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Salvation, and released a new trailer for its Zombies content.

The pack is comprised of four multiplayer maps, as well as the new Zombies mission: Revelations. The mission concludes the ongoing Zombies storyline that started in 2008 with Call of Duty: World at War. Check out the new trailer:

“In Revelations, we meet up with the Origins characters after they’ve taken an epic journey through space and time–all of their struggles lead to this very moment,” states a press release. “In this, the final chapter of the Zombies experience, Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai finally come face to face with the mysterious Doctor Monty in The House. Confronted by an ancient evil, our heroes must fight the zombie horde once more in the final battle to save their immortal souls.”

Beyond the Zombie stuff, the DLC will include four multiplayer maps. Two of these are original creations, while two others are reimagined versions of maps from previous Treyarch Call of Duty games. Here are the official descriptions:

  • Citadel: Once home to a powerful medieval army, this ancient castle now sits broken and abandoned. Tight corners force close-quarters engagements, while the moat and drawbridge allows for unique player movement opportunities in this mid-sized map. The last trespassers didn’t make it out alive–maybe you’ll have a better shot.
  • Micro: What’s better than a BBQ on a hot summer day? A miniaturized war zone that takes place on a well-stocked family picnic table, that’s what! Navigate this bite-size battlefield for a larger-than-life experience.
  • Outlaw: Gear up for a showdown in Outlaw; a western-style reimagining of the fan favorite map Standoff from Call of Duty: Black Ops II. This rough-and-tough medium-sized map brings classic engagements, flanking routes and strategic positions for long and medium ranged combat.
  • Rupture: The Call of Duty: World at War classic Outskirts is reimagined as a high-tech facility, designed by a futuristic society desperate to repair the Earth’s atmosphere.

Salvation is part of the Black Ops III’s $50 season pass. If you don’t own the season pass, the DLC will be available individually for $15 when it launches on PlayStation 4 on September 6th. Xbox One and PC release dates will come sometime “later.”

My Opinion:

Standard Call of Duty DLC. I don’t think the content warrants the price, but alas, millions of people will be downloading come its release.
