Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Eclipse now available on PS4

Release on other platforms to follow.


The second expansion to 2015's Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Eclipse provides new maps and zombies for you to sink your teeth into—provided aforementioned zombies don't sink their teeth into your brain first.

Eclipse launched on PS4 earlier today, and installs four new multiplayer maps to your system. For fans of the walking dead (zombies, not the show, although I guess that's applicable here) you'll find yourself transported to a new setting: an island rife with undead during the WWII Pacific Theater.

"We know that fans are playing the hell out of our current selection of multiplayer and Zombies maps, which is why we have been working so hard to deliver an epic new DLC offering with Eclipse," said Mark Lamia, Treyarch's studio head, in a press release.

Eclipse's four new maps—Knockout, Spire, Rift, and Verge—each put their own twist on Black Ops 3's gameplay. Of particular note is Knockout, a Shaolin Temple prepped for a martial arts tournament.

Eclipse and other DLC packs for Black Ops 3 will run you $14.99 a pop, or you can purchase a Season Pass for $49.99 for guaranteed access to all four map packs.

As of right now, Eclipse is a timed exclusive for PS4. Info on Xbox One and PC releases will follow at a later date.
