First 'Call of Duty: Black Ops III' map pack isn't coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

  1. It was revealed in mid-September that PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops III wouldn't ship with the game's single-player campaign mode. Activision docked $10 off the price of the game to compensate which really wasn't a huge deal considering the popularity of the online multiplayer aspect.

    With the game's first DLC looming, however, older console users have a legitimate reason to get upset.

    Activision recently revealed that the Awakening DLC will feature four multiplayer maps as well as a new zombie experience that'll play out in a medieval Austrian castle during World War II. Sounds great for COD fans, no? Yeah, so long as you aren't playing on an older console.

    A press release on the matter explicitly states that the Awakening DLC won't be available on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. Ouch. Of course, this isn't entirely surprising considering the fact that Activision never offered the Season Pass for older consoles. A Season Pass is a one-time fee that grants access to all four major DLCs planned for the game.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops III Awakening is slated to land on the PlayStation 4 on February 2, 2016. It'll remain an exclusive on Sony's console (as it used to with Microsoft) for roughly a month before arriving on other platforms.

    So the first update for everyone else isn't until March 2016. By time the rest of the map packs are released the next CoD will be released.

    Jeez! They're on Black Ops 3 already. I haven't paid any attention to this franchise since MW. I liked it as a WW2 shooter much more.
