Call of Duty: Black Ops III is great; allow our Supreme Leader James to tell you why it’s so great. A large part of that greatness is thanks to Zombies and multiplayer. So it’s good news then that the first DLC map pack is just around the corner, and that it’ll bring with it a first chapter of a four-part co-op zombie campaign. Oh yeah, there are also four new multiplayer maps.

Here’s the bad news: it’s not coming to the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 versions of the game. Those two “last-gen” versions are a bit of an oddity. For a start, there is no campaign mode in the PS3 and 360 version; there is just multiplayer. And now, that multiplayer seems doomed to languish with it’s launch maps, never to receive new multiplayer content.


The first map pack, which is called Awakening (but, sadly, no of the Force variety), is a timed exclusive on the PlayStation 4. You might recall that Sony made a big deal about snatching Call of Duty “exclusivity” from Microsoft. Awakening will arrive on the Xbox One a month later. PC? Well, PC is never specifically mentioned by Activision PR (according to Kotaku), but we can assume the DLC will land on that platform at the same time as the Xbox One version.

The first map pack and Zombie add-on costs $15. Which is about R220 unless President Zuma hires and fires a fourth Minister of Finance between now and 02 February 2016.
