Owing to a news post via Activision’s Scott Lowe, the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies map “The Giant,” which in and of itself was a remaster of World at War’s “Der Riese”, is now available for standalone purchase. Previously, one had to buy any number of the deluxe editions, or buy the season pass to get access to this map, but it seems as though Activision has seen fit to open up access to all who wish to get in on the excellent zombie-slaying action. With the upcoming Infinite Warfare also featuring a Zombies game mode, it will be interesting to see just what remade maps make it into the latest Call of Duty installment.

Official Press Release

London, UK – 2nd June 2016 – The Giant, a remake of Der Riese, one of the all-time fan favourite Treyarch Zombies maps, is now available for a la carte purchase for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 players on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The Giant was previously only available as a bonus, included with the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Juggernog Edition, Hardened Edition and Digital Deluxe Editions, as well as part of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Season Pass. Now, however, the map is available as a stand-alone offering for eager Zombies fans.

The Giant takes players back to a secret research facility of Treyarch’s classic Der Riese Zombies map, picking up the Zombies story with classic characters Dempsey, Nikolai, Richtofen and Takeo.

Additionally, The Giant is now available for individual purchase on PlayStation 3, with availability on other last gen platforms to follow. For more information, visit the Activision Games Blog Link.
