When Can You Get Call of Duty: Black Ops III's "Descent" DLC?

Call of Duty: Black Ops III's "Descent" DLC will be available on July 12 for PlayStation 4.

Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops III will release its "Descent" DLC pack on July 12. There's a catch, though: This initial release will be for PlayStation 4 only, with other releases to follow at a later time.

The pack features four new multiplayer maps. Empire is a re-imagining of Black Ops 2 map Raid as a Roman villa, while Cryogen takes place in a prison filled with frozen criminals off the coast of the Dead Sea. Berserk is a Viking village frozen in time, and Rumble features huge mechanical warriors who might just get in the players' way as they battle it out.

Players also enter the Soviet Union in the 1940s in Gorod Krovi, the latest chapter of the Zombies story. Waiting for them will be mechanized zombies and fire-breathing dragons as they attempt to navigate Stalingrad's remains.

Treyarch Studio Head Mark Lamia spoke about the latest Black Ops III DLC:

"One of the things I love most about Treyarch is that team just keeps going for it. Descent doesn’t take its foot off the gas, serving up a flat-out scorching Zombies experience, as well as multiplayer map designs and gameplay opportunities that we think our fans are going to love.”

Those who purchased the Call of Duty: Black Ops III season pass for PS4 can now pre-order "Descent" at a discount.
