Even with the Zombies mode, I’ve always thought of Call of Duty as the more realistic alternative to games like Halo and Titanfall. But with the release of the Descent multiplayer DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 (opens in new tab), I feel like that perception deserves to change. Because as of today, Call of Duty is now a game with giant fighting robots and dragons.
Out today on PS4 and coming to Xbox One and PC sometime in the near future (usually the delay on these timed exclusives is 30 days), the Descent multiplayer pack adds four new regular maps and one big, scale-y update to the Zombies mode. You can get a free taste sample below:
If one of those maps looks familiar, congratulations; either you’re a veteran of the series, have a keen eye, or both. The Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (opens in new tab) map known as Raid has been remade, remixed, and renamed. It’s now called Empire, and features geometry better suited to Black Ops 3’s wall-running and air-boosting traversal system.
Personally though, I’m all about Rumble. I used to watch BattleBots all the time growing up, and this seems like the same gladiatorial concept taken to new heights – literally, since those robots look quite massive.
