"Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" has one map that reimagines a favourite from "Call of Duty: World at War." PlayStation Blog

After several leaks, Treyarch and Activision have finally unveiled the next DLC for “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.” Titled Eclipse, it features some new maps and the continuing story for the Zombie s saga.

The video below is the prologue trailer for the DLC. It involves a Japanese fleet aboard a ship that’s wrecking through a storm in the sea. Gunshots are fired and there’s even a man who’s set on fire and bursts.

The action happens all to protect an orb. The survivors appear to be drifting towards an island, presumably Zetsubou no Shima. Over at the PlayStation Blog, Activision revealed the features and maps that players can expect for the “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” Eclipse map.

There are four maps, one of which will be a reimagined version of the Banzai map from “Call of Duty: World at War.” Players can go for the futuristic appeal of Spire, which is set in a sub-orbital airport terminal above the clouds. It features open areas and several levels set in a civilian setting. High-pace and mid-range, it’s a great map to explore the different levels without getting a foot caught on a wrong step.

Rift shows a military complex with funnels and forces all over. The setup forces players to move forward, but also make use of the environment to gain the upper hand in face-offs.

The third map is Knockout, which is a play on a Shaolin Temple and Kung Fu fighting. Finally, there’s Verge, a new take on the Banzai map, and one that puts the player into a post-apocalyptic setting with two factions at war with each other.

As mentioned, Zetsubou No Shima will bring “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” players to an uninhabited island. The island had seen some experiments with the Element 115 on humans, animals and plants alike, and these have been transformed in some way. The “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3” Eclipse DLC will launch first on the PS4 come April 19.

While fans are waiting to play the new DLC, there has been some talk about the “Call of Duty” 2016. Speaking with Gamingbolt, gaming analyst Michael Pachter revealed that he is looking at a possible take on “Modern Warfare” or a new IP like “Ghosts.”

“Probably not ‘Advanced Warfare,’ and definitely not ‘Black Ops,’ so what’s left?” Pachter said to Gamingbolt. “Either a new IP like Ghosts, or go back to Modern Warfare, which I think they know how to do.”

Pachter also things that, given the range of games that will be coming out, the next “Call of Duty” may do well. However, this is emphasising that there will not be a lot of very big games for the latter part of the year.
