Activision teases gamers on what to expect for the upcoming Black Ops III's next Zombies chapter, which is called Zetsubou No Shima. The expansion pack lands on April 19 on PS4 and then arrives on Xbox and PC weeks later.

Here's the latest round up of update about Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 April DLC release date, features and rumors.

The next installment of Black Ops III's Zombie narrative follows the story of Richtofen, Nikolai, Dempsey and Takeo. These Black Ops Origins heroes find themselves on an abandoned island in the South Pacific.

On the island, the heroes investigate a secret biological research facility where experiments under Element 115 have produced "horrors beyond belief." So, players should expect they will encounter frightening enemies and dangerous traps, as per reports from Game Spot.

Watch the prologue of Eclipse's Zetsubou No Shima below.

 

Aside from Zetsubou No Shima, the Eclipse DLC will introduce four new multiplayer maps in Black Ops 3. The four new locations are Spire, Rift, Knockout and Verge, according to IGN.

Spire takes players to a futuristic sub-orbital airport terminal located in clouds. The location also offers intense, mid-range combat in a high-tech civilian setting.

Rift is a harsh futuristic military complex, situated in an active caldera. Rift also encourages players to have intense engagements.

Knockout transports players in a traditional Shaolin Temple. The location sets the stage for a tough Kung Fu Tournament. This mid-sized map has eclectic 1970's interior and traditional architecture on the outside.

Lastly, Verge is reinvention of the classic Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai. This map takes players into a distant post-apocalyptic future, where the two opposing forces have to face each other in an action-packed combat.

The Eclipse expansion pack shows Treyarch's commitment to deliver high-quality DLC packs to players. "We are pushing ourselves at every turn to craft new and unique ways to play," Mark Lamia, Studio Head of Treyarch, told in Express.co.

Eclipse is Black Ops 3's second DLC. The first expansion pack is Awakening, which was released on February. The game developer said there will be two more expansion packs in the future. All of the DLCs are included in the Season Pass, which is priced at $50.

In a game review from Polygon, it says Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has solid and competitive multiplayer that is appealing for every shooter-game fan. The tech website gave Black Ops 3 a score of 7/10.
