Treyarch have announced the details of the next map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 titled Descent.

The new DLC pack will feature four new multiplayer maps and a new zombie map which will continue with the ongoing storyline. Descent will be available for download on PlayStation 4 on July 12th. Xbox One and PC release dates will come at a later time.


Cryogen, Berserk, Rumble, and Empire multiplayer maps will bring players to totally new environments and includes Black Ops 2 fan favorite map, Raid, but with an all new Roman villa theme. Here are Treyarch’s full details about the Descent maps:

  • Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops III movement system to the Call of Duty: Black Ops II fan-favorite map Raid. The re-imagining of this classic, medium-sized map features an authentic Roman villa that has been "recreated by a modern-day eccentric billionaire," where a classic map structure mixes with the new gameplay mechanics of Black Ops III.
  • Cryogen: Located far off the coast in the Dead Sea, an isolated compound holds some of the world's most dangerous criminals in frozen isolation. Sentry towers keep watch over the small map's circular design as frenetic combat is funneled around the prison's cryogenic tubes, where opportunities for wall running attacks abound.
  • Berserk: Ancient sentinels from a lost civilization guard the entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time. Players will fight through blizzards, and control the center bridge as they navigate this medium-sized map's wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings, and tight chokepoints.
  • Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanized warriors in Rumble, a stadium where giant robots battle to the roar of the crowd. This medium-sized map funnels high-speed combat to the central arena, where players battle their way through fallen mechs and pyrotechnics.

Gorod Krovi is the all new zombies story which will continue with the Origins storyline and dive into an alternate-U.S.S.R. universe. Gorod Krovi will have players fighting through war-torn Stalingrad against mechanized zombies. And get ready to go Game of Thrones on the undead as dragons can be seen melting the horde in the all new trailer shown below.


Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Descent DLC pack is playable on July 12th as part of the BO3 Season Pass or can be purchased on own its own for $15. A Gorod Krovi dynamic PSN theme will be available for those who pre-order the pack or purchased the Season Pass on PS4. The DLC content should hit Xbox One and PC about a month after the PS4 release.
