Call of Duty: Black Ops III is getting another piece of DLC based entirely around the series’ long-running Zombies mode, and now publisher Activision has announced how much the pack will cost.
Zombies Chronicles will set you back $30 (with international pricing yet to be announced), whereas most Call of Duty map packs cost $15. More content is included than in most Call of Duty add-on packs, however: Chronicles bundles together and remasters eight old Zombies maps from World At War, Black Ops, and Black Ops II.
In addition, Activision released the trailer above and revealed the bonus content players can look forward to grabbing when the DLC launches (for PS4) on May 16. All customers will receive:3
- An exclusive Pack-A-Punch weapon camo
- Twenty vials of Liquid Divinium, a type of powerup and in-game currency
- Two “all-new Whimsical GobbleGums.” GobbleGums are a form of persistent upgrade within Black Ops III’s Zombies mode.
Preorder customers on PS4 will also receive a dynamic Zombies theme, and players on all platforms can earn double XP and earn various in-game rewards in Zombies mode for eight days starting May 16.
Zombies Chronicles launches that day for PS4. Treyarch has not announced when it will come to Xbox One and PC, but Past DLC packs typically arrive on those platforms about a month after the PS4 release.
This is a somewhat unusual content drop, as DLC support for Call of Duty games generally ends when the next game in the series is released; Infinite Warfare is the most recent installment in the series. However, Treyarch hinted last year that, due to sustained interest for Black Ops III, it wanted to bring more content to the game.
In other Call of Duty news, Call of Duty: WWII is in development at Sledgehammer Games and will launch on November 3 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
