Black Ops 3 Awakening

Activision is changing the way Call of Duty DLCs are delivered to players. Up until now, DLCs were bought from the online stores (PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, Steam, etc) and downloaded as additional content. However, that will no longer be the case.

According to the latest news to come out of Activision, Black Ops 3: Awakening DLC is going to be delivered to you via game update. This means whether you buy it or not, you are getting the DLC, but you won’t be able to access it until you pay.

Awakening is coming bundled with an update tomorrow, Feb.2. Activision confirmed:

In previous Call of Duty titles, DLC packs obtained through a Season Pass or as a standalone purchase required players to download the individual DLC pack through their console’s marketplace or the in-game storefront. However, the Awakening DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops III has been bundled into the patch released on 02/02/2016. This means there is no manual download of the DLC pack.

Please note: The patch is expected to be released midday Pacific time on 02/02/2016. The Awakening DLC pack will be available on this date exclusively on PlayStation 4. Release dates for Xbox One and PC coming soon.

The update in question is going to be of 9GB. This is great news for those who already own the season pass, or plan on getting the DLC later on. However, those who don’t want to get it, downloading this patch is going to be a headache.
