New details have come to light about Call of Duty: Black Ops III's DLC Season Pass. A listing on Xbox.com reveals its four map packs will come with, among other things, reimagined versions of "fan-favorite" maps from Treyarch's past Call of Duty games, including World at War and other Black Ops games.

In addition to multiplayer maps, fans can expect new Zombies content, presumably taking the form of additional chapters to the game's celebrity-filled mode.

A price point for Black Ops III's Season Pass was not announced, but if history is any indication, players should expect to pay $50 for it.

As announced previously, everyone who preorders Black Ops III gets access to "The Giant" Zombies map, which is set on a World War II-era research facility. It's a new version of the "Der Reise" map from World at War that continues the Origins story of characters Dempsey, Nikolai, Richtofen, and Takeo.

The Xbox product page also reveals that Black Ops III's Season Pass and The Giant Zombies map will not be available for the Xbox 360 version of the game. This follows the previous confirmation that Black Ops III's preorder-exclusive Nuk3town map is only offered on new-generation consoles and PC.

The first of Black Ops III's expansions is scheduled to launch in 2016.

Black Ops III itself arrives on November 6 across all platforms. Later today (October 23), Treyarch will hold its next Black Ops Friday livestream, though the developer has not said what it plans to divulge.
