The shooter's first expansion lands on its final platform on May 5.

Awakening originally launched in February for PlayStation 4, coming to Xbox One and PC month later. In a December 2015 press release, Activision said Awakening was "not available" on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.

However, in March this year, Activision confirmed it was coming to PS3, where it launched on April 5. At the time, Activision made no mention of a release for Xbox 360.

Call of Duty DLC launches first on PlayStation platforms due to a timed-exclusivity agreement between Sony and Activision that was announced in 2015. Previously, Xbox consoles got Call of Duty DLC first.

Awakening includes four multiplayer maps (Skyjacked, Splash, Gauntlet, and Rise), as well as the Zombies chapter, Der Eisendrache. The Skyjacked map is a re-imagining of Black Ops II's Hijacked arena.

Black Ops III's second paid expansion, Eclipse, came to PS4 on April 19. The content will be released for other platforms later, though no specific timing announcements have been made yet.

The next Call of Duty game is rumored to be titled Infinite Warfare. Activision is also reportedly developing a remastered version of fan-favorite Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
