'Call of Duty: Black Ops 3' DLC release date, news: Salvation finally arrives on Xbox One and PC


The final expansion pack for “Call of Duty: Black Ops III” dubbed as Salvation will finally hit Xbox One and PC today, Oct. 6, following a month’s worth of availability for PlayStation 4 users.

The tip came from Charlie Intel and details what fans who have yet to get their hands on the downloadable content (DLC) can expect. Same as the PS4 version, this belated release will include four new multiplayer maps.

Citadel, which is an ancient castle, was “once home to a powerful medieval army,” but its tight corners prove to be a great backdrop for close-quarter engagements. Its moat and drawbridge, on the other hand, provide the players unique movements.

It is then followed by Micro, “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, on the other hand, is a “western-style re-imagining 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.”

Closing out the list is Rupture. The re-imagined Outskirts map from “The Call of Duty: World at War” is “a high-tech facility, designed by a futuristic society desperate to repair the Earth’s atmosphere.”

The Salvation DLC will also bring the final chapter in the Origins Zombies saga called Revelations. In the featured mode, Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo and Nikolai will finally have their face-to-face with the mysterious Doctor Monty in The House. In their last-ditch effort to ultimately save their souls, the characters will need to battle zombie walkers in the gameplay.

It can be remembered that for a time, Activision had been mum about the chances of the “Call of Duty: Black Ops III” Salvation DLC going live for Xbox One and PC so this revelation is a great development for those who have been hotly anticipating its release. The DLC, however, is only available through the Season Pass for PC users. Xbox One and PS4 gamers can get a hold of it separately for $14.99.
