The Eclipse PC and Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC 2 release date is just a few days away and there are several tips that can help you prepare your PC and Xbox One for the new Black Ops 3 maps and Zetsubou No Shima Zombies that arrive on May 19th.
Treyarch and Activision delivered the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 DLC 2 pack to the Xbox One overnight and the PC DLC 2 release is coming later today on May 19th,
A Black Ops 3 Double XP weekend just wrapped up and we know when you can play, the size of the Eclipse DLC map pack on PC or Xbox One and other detials.
If you are a PC or Xbox One owner, this is what you need to know to get ready for the Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC 2.
You can buy the Eclipse DLC for $14.99 or you can buy the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 season pass for $49.99 that includes all of the DLC packs. This is $10 less than buying them individually. You’ll find more people to play if you buy all or none of the DLC packs.
Here are the Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC 2 release date tips that will help you prepare for the new maps and zombies — so you can get right into the gameplay.
Clean Out Your Xbox One or PC Hard Drive
Treyarch did not include the Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC 2 maps in an update for PS4, so it is very likely that we will be seeing them arrive as a standalone download. The PS4 DLC 2 map pack was around 7GB,The Xbox One Maps are 7.9GB and we expect that the PC maps will be the same.
Even if Treyarch includes them in a new May Black Ops 3 1.11 update of some kind, you will likely need a lot of room. We already saw one large Black Ops 3 1.1o update arrive in May.
We recommend making sure your PC or Xbox One has at least 7 to 10GB of free space so that the any update and the maps will automatically download if your settings are correct. Check out how to delete a Xbox One game to make room.
Start the Black Ops 3 Eclipse Maps ASAP
You may be able to pre-load the Black Ops 3 DLC 2 file, if you go to the Xbox Store or Steam. Once it shows up in the store, you should be able to pre-load it or at least tell your Xbox One to start downloading it in Instant On mode.
No matter how the maps arrive on your Xbox One or PC, you will want to start downloading them as soon as possible. You may want to use the Xbox app on your phone or remote connect to your PC if you have a slow connection at home since the update could take a while to download. Don’t stream video or play games online if you want to download the maps the fastest.
This will take a while to download on slow connections. If you are able to plug in to a wired connection, we recommend doing this to speed up your download.
@Sullevann It's a separate download package. I honestly don't know if it can pre-load. I doubt it, but I am not 100% on that.

The actual Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC 2 download was listed at 23.3MB on the PlayStation Store, but it jumped to almost 7GB. We could see the same thing happen on Steam.
How to Download Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC 2
On your PC or Xbox One, you can download the Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC 2 from the Xbox Store, Steam or from inside the Black Ops 3 app.
You will need to download an update if it comes out, but you also need to either pre-order the Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC pack when it goes live or buy the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 season pass.
If you have any issues with this, you will need to follow these directions.
- Open Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
- Open the Store
- Choose Map Packs
- Choose Eclipse DLC
You can then activate this map pack or download it to your PS4. This should allow you to play.
Eclipse Black Ops 3 DLC Problems
It is likely that you will run into Black Ops 3 DLC problems right after the release.
We’ve seen issues activating DLC, slow Black Ops 3 DLC downloads and issues connecting to games after installing previous DLC.
If you own the season pass and you still see a price listed, don’t worry it will not charge you again for the DLC 2 maps on Xbox.
If your download is slow, try connecting with ethernet, even if you can only do this temporarily. You can also try pausing the download and starting it again a minute later.
If you have trouble connecting to games after installing, you should try closing the app or restarting your console completely. That means turning it off and then turning it back on.
It is possible that Treyarch will need to deliver a Black Ops 3 hotfix shortly after the Eclipse release date to fix issues.
