Activision gave us a bit of a surprise announcement the other day. Despite all of the information that led us to believe we would never see any of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s DLC packs on last-gen consoles, it seems that assumption was wrong. According to the publisher, Awakening, the game’s first downloadable content pack, will be available for Playstation 3 on April 5th.
Awakening was first released for the PS4 back in February. It was then made available on the Xbox One and PC platforms a month later. Now, two months after it’s initial launch, the DLC is set to make an appearance on the PS3.
The Awakening DLC pack includes four new multiplayer maps (Gauntlet, Rise, Skyjacked, and Splash) as well as a new zombies adventure, Der Eisendrache. Gamers that wish to get this content for their Playstation 3 console will have to pay $14.99 and will come with a free static theme. There currently isn’t a DLC season pass available for last-gen consoles.
There is no word on whether or not Awakening will eventually make its way to the Xbox 360. We assume that since it’s being released on the PS3, though, that it will. Chances are, it’ll be made available for 360 owners a month later (around May 5th).
