Ahead of Activision’s and Treyarch’s World Reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s fourth, and final DLC at Call of Duty XP, both companies let the cat out of the bag: Black Ops 3’s 4th DLC is called “Salvation.” Black Ops 3’s Salvation will be released first on PlayStation  on September 6th, 2016. Which makes today’s announcement understandable, given how close CODXP is, and how close the release of Salvation is.
Salvation, the fourth DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops III, the best-selling console video game on next generation platforms, will arrive first on PlayStation 4 on September 6, with other next-gen platforms to follow. Published by Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. [Nasdaq: ATVI] and developed by Treyarch, Salvation, delivers the reality-altering finale of the Origins Zombies adventure, and four action-packed multiplayer environments for fans.
“Without a doubt, this is the most epic season of DLC that we’ve ever created for fans of Multiplayer and Zombies,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch. “At this point it goes without saying, that Zombies has been a true labor of love for the studio, and I’m proud to say that this will be a defining and epic experience for the fans who have joined us over the last 8 years.”
Salvation features Revelations, the long-awaited final chapter in the Origins Zombies saga. In Revelations, we meet up with the Origins characters after they’ve taken an epic journey through space and time – all of their struggles lead to this very moment. In this, the final chapter of the Zombies experience, Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai finally come face to face with the mysterious Doctor Monty in The House. Confronted by an ancient evil, our heroes must fight the zombie horde once more in the final battle to save their immortal souls.
“With the release of Zombies as an Easter Egg in 2008’s Call of Duty: World at War, Treyarch set forth on a journey – or, really a conversation – with fans, and Revelations is the final punctuation mark,” said Jason Blundell, Director of Zombies, Treyarch. “The secrets we laid out years ago will finally make sense – we’ve been waiting a long time for this.”
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Salvation is also loaded with four new action-packed multiplayer maps that jettison players from the ancient walls of a medieval fortress to the deceptively quaint setting of a backyard picnic.
– Citadel: Once home to a powerful medieval army, this ancient castle now sits broken and abandoned. Tight corners force close-quarters engagements, while the moat and drawbridge allows for unique player movement opportunities in this mid-sized map. The last trespassers didn’t make it out alive – maybe you’ll have a better shot.
– Micro: What’s better than a BBQ on a hot summer day? 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: Gear up for a showdown in Outlaw; 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.
– Rupture: The Call of Duty: World at War classic Outskirts is re-imagined as a high-tech facility, designed by a futuristic society desperate to repair the Earth’s atmosphere.
Salvation is now available for pre-order on PlayStation 4 at a discounted rate via the Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC Season Pass, which also features the three DLC Map Packs already released this year, as part of the discounted bundle offered at a suggested retail price of $49.99. Individual purchase of DLC Map Packs, including Salvation, is at a suggested retail price of $15. Starting today, pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops III Salvation for PlayStation 4 to receive an exclusive Revelations dynamic theme. Call of Duty: Black Ops III is rated M for Mature with Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence and Strong Language.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Salvation launches on September 6 for PlayStation 4 games and entertainment system from Sony, with other next-gen platform availability to follow.
