'Call of Duty: Black Ops 3' DLC 2 Eclipse release date & news

Rumor mill is spreading that the upcoming "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" DLC 2, or Eclipse,  is set to be released at midnight Pacific time for Xbox One and PC users. Though it is expected to be launched the same time when the Eclipse update was made available for PS4, game developers remained silent up until now.

Despite the clamor it has been making, "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" DLC 2, or Eclipse, may be launched on May 24 as new DLC packs from the "Call of Duty" series are usually released on Tuesdays. What fans should do right now is to keep their fingers crossed as no official announcements have been made public as of yet.

'Call of Duty: Black Ops 3' DLC 2 Eclipse features & updates

According to reports, the upcoming "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" DLC 2, or Eclipse, is said to include four new multiplayer maps. Additionally, it is said to introduce a new entry in the ongoing Zombies storyline of the game that takes the characters to a Pacific Island during the World War II era. Below are the maps descriptions per Treyarch:

  • Knockout: Housed in a traditional Shaolin Temple with a retro twist, Knockout sets the stage for a bloody Kung Fu tournament. This mid-sized map showcases a sharp contrast between the mid-range engagements of the traditional exterior architecture and the tight close-quarters of an eclectic 1970's styled interior.
  • Rift: Head to the core of a harsh futuristic military complex, set high above an active caldera. Rift funnels and forces tight, intense engagements, where the only way through is forward. Utilize the unique core movement opportunities to outsmart and outplay enemies as you traverse the suspended rail system.
  • Spire: Spire takes multiplayer combat to a futuristic sub-orbital airport terminal set high in the clouds. Multiple levels and open areas promote intense, mid-range combat around a clean, high-tech civilian environment. Watch your step, because one wrong move could send you plummeting back through the stratosphere.
  • Verge: In this re-imagination of the classic Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai, Verge drops multiplayer combat into the center of a distant post-apocalyptic future, where two warring factions are entrenched in constant battle. Take control of the key bridge, fortresses, tunnel systems and waterfalls as you engage in high-speed action through this medium-sized map.

Aside from the upcoming "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" DLC 2, or Eclipse, update, there are also reports claiming that a new update could also be underway. While none is confirmed until now, game experts think that there is a so-called "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" 1.10 update for PS4 and a new update for PC and Xbox One.

Reports have it that Activision and Treyarch have bundled the forthcoming "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" DLC maps into the console update. However, that is not the case for "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" DLC 2 anymore.

Meanwhile, the "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" 1.10 update is expected to deliver new DLC weapons and maybe a DLC specialist. Gamers could purchase the "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3"DLC 2, or Eclipse, for only $15, while it is also included in the $50-worth "Call of Duty: Black Ops 3" pass.
