New Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Zombies Map Trailer Showcases Suicide Mission


A new trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III’s first expansion Awakening has been released, this one focusing on the new Zombies map, Der Eisendrache. As you’ll see, it continues the story left off by the last map, The Giant, which itself was a remake of Der Riese from previous Call of Duty games.

Characters from the Zombies Origins story, including Richtofen, Nikolai, Takeo, and Dempsey, are sent on a suicide mission to an enemy research facility. It’s sitting on the site of “unspeakable horror.” The video showcases some kind of killer dragon that looks like it’ll be a force to be reckoned with.

In trademark Zombies fashion, players can also expect a “variety of exciting plot twists and surprises” from Der Eisendrache.

In addition to the Zombies map, Awakening comes with four multiplayer maps, including one set in an abandoned water park. The expansion launches February 2 on PS4 and PS3, with a release for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC coming sometime later.

Awakening is included with Black Ops 3’s $50 DLC pass (which also gets you a further three expansions in the future) or you can buy it separately. Pricing was not announced, but history indicates that it will cost $15.
