Catch a Glimpse of the Maps in Black Ops 3’s Salvation

Four maps, four DLC packs. It’s been an interesting year for Call of Duty, as they face increasing criticism for Infinite Warfare from the rabid YouTube hordes, but many are still looking forward to Black Ops 3 extra content. Treyarch delivers with four new maps, and a zombies mode covered previously. The first, Outlaw, is a remake of Black Ops 2’s Standoff as a Western ghost town, complete with coal-burning train. The second, Citadel, takes us to a haunted medieval castle, where we have run-ins with the ghosts of soldiers’ past. The third, Micro, sees the player shrunk down to the size of ants, as they wage war across a picnic spread, and the final map, Rupture, sees a remake of Outskirts from World at War, moving from the war-torn Berlin suburbs to a high-tech alien research facility.

This pack comes “free” to Season Pass owners, which is currently the only way to gain access to the DLC. Salvation drops later today for PS4 owners, and is set to come out later for PC and Xbox One owners.

Official Press Release

London, UK – 6th September 2016 – The monumental fourth and final DLC map pack for Call of Duty®: Black Ops III, the best-selling console video game on next generation platforms*, Salvation, is now available on PlayStation 4, with other next-gen platforms to follow**.  Published by Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. [Nasdaq: ATVI] and developed by Treyarch, Salvation delivers the thrilling climax of the Zombies Origins saga plus four exciting multiplayer maps.

“The team at Treyarch has worked tirelessly to make this an incredible year for Call of Duty: Black Ops III players and we hope fans have as much fun playing it as we had making it,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch.  “The release of Revelations has a great deal of sentimental value: it has been an adventure eight years in the making, and a very special journey that we’ve taken with our fans.”

Salvation features Revelations, the finale of the Origins Zombies saga.  In Revelations, this final chapter of the Zombies experience, Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai – having travelled through space and time – finally discover the identity of the mysterious Doctor Monty in The House.  As the heroes face-off against an ancient evil, they must hold the zombie horde back in the ultimate battle between human and undead.

Salvation also includes four new action-packed multiplayer maps set within the ancient walls of a medieval fortress, to the dusty streets of an old-west town.

  • 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.
  • Micro: What’s better than a BBQ on a hot summer day? A miniaturised war zone that takes place on a well-stocked family picnic table. Navigate this bite-size battlefield for a larger-than-life experience.
  • Outlaw: Gear up for a showdown in Outlaw; a western-style re-imagining of the fan favourite 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 re-imagined as a high-tech facility, designed by a futuristic society desperate to repair the Earth’s atmosphere.  Take control of one of the facility’s mechs to unleash a barrage of heavy machine gun and rocket destruction.

Salvation is now available on PlayStation 4 at a discounted rate via the Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC Season Pass***, which also features the three DLC Map Packs already released this year, as part of a discounted bundle.  Purchase of Call of Duty: Black Ops III Salvation for PlayStation 4 includes an exclusive Revelations dynamic theme.  Call of Duty: Black Ops III is rated PEGI 18.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III Salvation is out now for PlayStation 4 games and entertainment system from Sony, with other next-gen platform availability to follow**.
