How to Download Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC Early
The Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC release date is March 3rd, but you can download the new DLC maps and Zombies experience now.
As of 10PM Eastern on March 2nd Microsoft enabled the necessary ad in the UK. You can change your console region to the UK on your Xbox, launch the ad, download the Awakening Black Ops 3 maps early and then switch back to play offline. You may need the Season Pass to see the ad. Check out our Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC release date tips for more.
This guide will show you how to download the Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC and how you can play the Awakening DLC Maps early on Xbox One.
After a month of exclusivity the Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC release date arrives on March 3rd, but you can start downloading the new maps today, and you can now buy the Awakening DLC for $14.99 without buying the Season Pass.
You can also buy the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Season Pass for $49.99 if you want all the map packs. This guide will also allow you to start the Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC download if you bought the season pass already.
Here’s what you need to do to download the Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC early.
The first thing you need to do is go to your Xbox One Dashboard. Here you should see an Ad for the Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC on the right side. If you don’t see this hold the left and right trigger, then press Y to refresh the dashboard. Once you see the ad, select it and you will end up on a screen prompting you to buy the Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC, and to buy the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Season Pass.
Even if you already bought the Xbox One Black Ops 3 Season Pass you should choose the Buy Now option.
This will take you to the Xbox Store, where you will see the option to buy the Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC 1 now. If you already redeemed your Season Pass this will show an option to install the Awakening Black Ops 3 maps early on Xbox One.
Choose to install, wait for the small 10MB file to download and then you can go into the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 game on Xbox One and the maps are available.
The file is small because the maps actually arrived on your console last month with the February Black Ops 3 update. We expect a March Black Ops 3 update with new fixes and the changes we saw on the PS4 Black Ops 3 1.07 update to arrive soon on Xbox One.
If you choose to Play Local n the Xbox One Black Ops 3 menu you can create an offline game and then choose the new DLC maps so that you can learn the best places to travel, ambush others and quickest way to get around each map. The video above walks through that and shows Xbox One Black Ops 3 Awakening Gameplay on Splash.
Check out our Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC review to find out what we like about this and what you need to know before you buy the DLC.
You can also check out the slides below that will show you a better look at each of the maps, and more gameplay of each map so that you can start researching.

03/02/2016 at 9:54 am
I know this is not fake and i want to do it but the far cry and Rainbow siege keeps comming up -_- i cant belive they patch this that fast
03/02/2016 at 9:54 am
I have the Skype advertisement as well, they’ll probably leave it there until the DLC is out.
03/02/2016 at 10:22 am
ihave the division so i think this is fake
03/02/2016 at 10:40 am
It is not fake, this morning waking up to go to school I saw the ad, I pressed it and it said by now, since I have season pass it automatically installed and I have all the maps. I think it’s only for people who purchased Season Pass. Season pass holders have early access a day before release date. But I can confirm that I have season pass, on Xbox one & I already have the maps. Thanks Treyarch

You can still play the Awakening dlc if you managed to download it during the short time it was available. Simply disconnect your Xbox from the Internet and it should be available to play locally.
