Today Activision released information on the fourth and final expansion to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. As always we’ve got four new multiplayer maps, and there are some wild ones this time, from a castle to remakes of past favorites, to a picnic table (no really, a picnic table). This is Activision’s official description:
- 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.
There’s also, of course, a Zombies Mode. Activision promised the last Zombies chapter (which is now called “Revelations”) would wrap up the narrative introduced back in 2008. “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.”
Black Ops 3: Salvation will be released first on PS4 September 7. Activision could be releasing a trailer as soon as tomorrow; we’ll get it to you when we have it.
