Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's Salvation DLC Hits Xbox One and PC Very Soon

Xbox One and PC players can jump in on October 6.


Call of Duty: Black Ops III's final expansion, Salvation, will launch on Xbox One and PC on October 6, according to CharlieIntel. The DLC arrived in September on PlayStation 4.

The expansion includes four multiplayer maps, including Citadel and Micro. That second one is particularly interesting, as it takes place on a picnic table where the players are really, really small, like in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Another map is called Outlaw, and it's a western-style reimagining of the Standoff map from Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Rupture is the name of the fourth map; it's a reimagining of Call of Duty: World at War's Outskirts arena, but now its focus is a high-tech facility.

Salvation also adds a new Zombies chapter titled Revelations. This is the finale of the Origins Zombies saga that started eight years ago with Call of Duty: World at War. In this chapter, main characters Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai finally know the identity of Doctor Monty. This episode acts as a final showdown against "an ancient evil" in the "ultimate battle between human and undead."

Salvation is included with Black Ops III's $50 DLC pass or it can be purchased by itself for $15.

For more on Revelations, check out GameSpot's interview with Treyarch senior executive producer Jason Blundell.

Salvation launched first on PS4 as part of a timed-exclusivity deal between Activision and Sony. Black Ops III's previous expansion packs included Awakening, Eclipse, and Descent. These are all included with the $50 DLC pass.

The next Call of Duty game, Infinite Warfare, comes out on November 4. Activision is also releasing a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but the only way get it is to buy one of Infinite Warfare's premium editions, which start at $80.
