The upcoming “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" Awakening DLC now has an official release date. Fans can now take a closer look at the upcoming expansion's new maps and zombie experience. Treyarch’s game will be receiving its first DLC with Awakening and it will add four new maps to multiplayer. Skyjacked, one of the new maps has been detailed in a video release by “Call of Duty” YouTube channel.

Skyjacked is in fact a remake of Hijacked from “Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.” However, it takes place in the sky instead of the sea. The DLC is to include the very first chapter of the new Zombies campaign - Der Eisendrache.

The upcoming “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 ” Awakening will be released on PS4, coming Feb. 2 and on Xbox One and PC on March 2, which is 30 days later, writes CrossMap.

Gauntlet – It’s a military training environment with an urban lane, a jungle lane and a snowy lane.

A new hotfix for “ Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” has gone live though details about the fix are scarce. David Vonderhaar of Treyarch did tweet about the fix.

Vonderhaar was basically referring to the numerous complains about the map Combine showing up too many times in game modes, writes Design&Trend. However, he again tweeted what really was in the hotfix.
