PS4 will gain access to a Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC Free Trial this weekend.
Starting April 1 at 10AM PT all PlayStation 4 players can play Awakening’s four multiplayer maps (Gauntlet, Splash, Rise and Skyjacked) and Zombies’ Der Eisendrache until the trial ends on April 4,again at 10AM PT.
Activision have revealed that if you have already downloaded the latest update then you will be ready to go as soon as 10am hits on Friday straight from the Zombies menu. You can access the Awakening maps, including the re-imagined Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 fan-favorite Skyjacked from the Awakening playlist or any preferred-mode playlists where all the maps will show up in the normal rotation.
The Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC Free Trial is coupled with a double XP and double weapon XP event all weekend so there’s plenty of reason to jump back on this weekend even if you already own the Awakening DLC. The double XP event will be taking place across all maps and on all platforms, not just the PS4 to promote the free DLC. The last time this happened was only a month ago so Treyarch are very keen to keep their fans happy and coming back for more.
The Awakening DLC is popular news at the minute as yesterday it was revealed that all four maps will be making their way to Playstation 3 as well as the zombie campaign Der Eisendrache. It won’t for the time being at least be making its way to Xbox 360 though.
This Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC free trial is sure to bring many players back on to the servers this weekend, so if you are a seasoned veteran then now might be a good time to pick up some easy kills. Alternatively if you are a fan of the game but never wanted to spend extra cash on DLC, then don’t miss your chance to play four new maps!
