best-selling console video game on next generation platforms*, Call of
Duty®: Black Ops III, arrives first on PlayStation 4 on July 12, with
other next-gen platforms to follow**. Call of Duty®: Black Ops III
Descent, from Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of
Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), drops players into four new
unique, multiplayer maps and an all-new Zombies experience that
continues the fan-favorite Origins storyline in an alternate-U.S.S.R.
"One of things I love most about Treyarch is that team just keeps going
for it," said Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch. "Descent doesn't take
its foot off the gas, serving up a flat-out scorching Zombies
experience, as well as multiplayer map designs and gameplay
opportunities that we think our fans are going to love."
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Descent features four new multiplayer maps
that takes the momentum-based, chained movement system across
the globe to unique settings that include a cryogenic prison, a Viking
village frozen in time, a giant robot combat arena and a modern day
reconstruction of an ancient Roman villa:
Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops III movement system to
the Call of Duty®: Black Ops II fan favorite map Raid. The re-imagining
of this classic, medium-sized map features an authentic Roman villa
that has been "recreated by a modern-day eccentric billionaire," where
a classic map structure mixes with the new gameplay mechanics of
Black Ops III.
Cryogen: Located far off the coast in the Dead Sea, an isolated
compound holds some of the world's most dangerous criminals in frozen
isolation. Sentry towers keep watch over the small map's circular
design as frenetic combat is funneled around the prison's cryogenic
tubes, where opportunities for wall running attacks abound.
Berserk: Ancient sentinels from a lost civilization guard the
entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time. Players will fight
through blizzards, and control the center bridge as they navigate this
medium-sized map's wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings, and
Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanized
warriors in Rumble, a stadium where giant robots battle to the roar of
the crowd. This medium-sized map funnels high-speed combat to the
central arena, where players battle their way through fallen mechs and
Descent also thrusts players to an alternate universe of Nikolai's
motherland, the 1940s Soviet Union, in the next highly-anticipated
chapter of the Origins Zombies saga, Gorod Krovi. Players
face-off against a swarm of mechanized zombie infantry and dodge
hell-fire from aerial dragon assaults, all in the middle of a raging battle
within the remnants of Stalingrad. Gorod Krovi delivers the most
exciting Zombies experience yet, filled with horrifying new enemies,
exciting new gameplay mechanics and an epic set of Zombie
