New Black Ops 3 Trailer Reveals the New Map Empire

By Kevin Tavore, 3 months ago
Fans of Call of Duty: Black Ops III are no doubt aware that the "Descent" DLC pack is on its way with, like the other packs before it, four new multiplayer maps and a new Zombies experience. Like those that came before it, Treyarch is releasing quick looks at each of the maps before the launch of the DLC.


Empire is today's map. It's a re-imagining of "Raid" from Black Ops 2. This map is set in an authentic Roman villa from ancient times. If you're worried about continuity and how this makes sense, apparently a billionaire had it built. Treyarch promises this map will allow you to put BO3's movement abilities to good use.

The "Descent" DLC pack for Black Ops 3 is coming soon but has no confirmed release date for Xbox One. If history tells us anything, it should come in mid-August.
