Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC: 5 Reasons We’re Excited

After playing a lot of Combine there are many reasons we are excited for the Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC that is coming in less than a week to PS4 and in a month to Xbox One and PC. Here is a look at five of the most exciting things about this first DLC pack.

In 2015 Treyarch delivered the best Call of Duty experience on Xbox One and PS4 to date, and since then we’ve seen a number of updates add in fixes, weapons tweaks, new melee weapons and we are about to get new Black Ops 3 maps and a new Black Ops 3 Zombies experience.

Skyjacked -- Hijacked Remake

If you played Black Ops 2, you undoubtedly experienced the Hijacked map. This was one of the most popular maps in Black Ops 2, coming up over and over again in playlists.

There are four new Black Ops 3 maps in total, but Skyjacked stands out as an exciting addition to the game. It has me excited to experience this new version of a fan favorite and Editor Adam Mills is also excited to try out this remake.  

As you can see in the video above, the new Skyjacked map includes plenty of room for the new movement options including wallrunning and jumping between levels. 

This isn't the only map we are excited about, but it is one that we cannot wait to try out online.
