Call of Duty has been releasing DLC packs first on Xbox platforms for several years, but that arrangement has ended and it is now time for a new era of timed exclusivity for the franchise. For those that forgot about the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 DLC announcement made back in December, the game's Awakening DLC is ready now and it's on PS4 first.

The DLC will include four new multiplayer maps: Skyjacked, Splash, Gauntlet, and Rise. In addition to that, Awakening will offer up the first chapter of a new Zombies campaign, called Der Eisendrache.

This should play differently from the Zombies campaign from the main game, offering an all-new story taking place during WWII. The team of Richtofen, Nikolai, Takeo and Dempsey must navigate a site filled with Element 115, as well as a slew of zombies.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's Awakening DLC is available individually for $15 or as part of the game's Season Pass. Look for it to hit PC and Xbox One in a couple of weeks.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
