"Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" from Treyarch will be released on Nov. 6. Activision

The latest DLC for “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3,” titled Awakening, has now been dated for release on the PS4 as a timed-exclusive expansion. Developer Treyarch and publisher Activision have announced that it will come out on the PS4 come Feb. 2, 2016.

Awakening triggers the first of the post-launch map packs for “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.” According to GameSpot, this pack brings four maps, including the zombies map Der Eisendrache and a couple of new gumballs. Seen in the video below, the newest trailer shows off the multiplayer maps, namely Gauntlet, Rise, Splash and Skyjacked.

The four maps feature different sites that amplify and enhance specific fighting and gameplay styles. Gauntlet has three areas in a military facility, Rise features Zurich’s construction site amid snow blizzards, Splash has a waterpark and Skyjacked shows off a flying aircraft hailing from the predecessor of “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.” The preview trailer can be seen below, and Treyarch’s Mark Lamia has a few words for players on what they can expect for the first DLC expansion.

Recently, Treyarch has also released another trailer, this time for the zombies mode of “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.” Express has spotted the trailer, dubbed as Nikolai Memories, which only aims to set up the elements and the setting of the newest zombie update. According to the report, the update’s goal is to bring a more memorable spin for the zombies aspect of “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.”

The short clip features a dreary scene, wherein a man is shown in front of a campfire with his uniform splattered in blood. There is even a scene that shows a zombie lurking in the same woods that the man is currently staying in. The trailer feels a little heavy on the dramatic side, but it does set up quite a heavy atmosphere for the zombies mode.

It appears that the work cut out for the developer is not yet done for the zombie mode. The AI structure for the BO3 zombies will see some changes, so that any archetypes used in the game can work with any kind of design and experience for “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.”
