Black Ops 3 DLC 3 Release Date: 4 Things to Expect & 3 Not To

The Black Ops 3 DLC 3 release date is July 12 on PS4 and it will come to the PC and Xbox One 30 days later. The Descent Black Ops 3 DLC map pack is now official, but there are some important things you still need to look out for, especially if you are on Xbox One and PC.

Even though the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare release date is approaching and enticing to gamers, you cannot play it yet. There are still two more Black Ops 3 DLC packs to come. We just started using the new Black Ops 3 Specialist and there are cool new Black Ops 3 guns to be had.

If you already purchased the Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC, and are now thinking you want the rest of the new maps, there is a deal that lets you upgrade from Awakening to the full Black Ops 3 season pass. It’s not clear if you can stack on this deal if you bought Awakening and Eclipse alone.

Expect a Midnight Black Ops 3 DLC 3 Release Time

Expect a Midnight Black Ops 3 DLC 3 Release Time

The Black Ops 3 DLC 3 release date is July 12th on PS4 and it is coming at midnight Eastern according to the PlayStation Store. That means it's coming at 9 PM the day before to users on the West coast. 

The Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC 2 release time was midnight Pacific for the PS4, so there is a chance this will change. The PS4 gets first access to the DLC and gets better treatment with pre-loading. The Xbox One and PC did not get an Eclipse pre-load.

When the first Awakening DLC release Activision listed an afternoon time on a support document, but the DLC arrived earlier in the day. Previous maps arrived with an update, but this is not how the maps came with Eclipse. 

Unless Treyarch reverses course to include the maps with a July Black Ops 3 update we expect that PS4 players will get to play it at midnight. The PC and Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC 3 release time may not come at midnight.
