The expansion includes four multiplayer maps, including Citadel and Micro. That second one is particularly interesting, as it takes place on a picnic table where the players are really, really small, like in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Another map is called Outlaw, and it’s a western-style reimagining of the Standoff map from Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Rupture is the name of the fourth map; it’s a reimagining of Call of Duty: World at War‘s Outskirts arena, but now its focus is a high-tech facility.
Salvation also adds a new Zombies chapter titled Revelations. This is the finale of the Origins Zombies saga that started eight years ago with Call of Duty: World at War. In this chapter, main characters Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai finally know the identity of Doctor Monty. This episode acts as a final showdown against “an ancient evil” in the “ultimate battle between human and undead.”
Salvation is included with Black Ops III’s $50 DLC pass or it can be purchased by itself for $15.

Salvation launched first on PS4 as part of a timed-exclusivity deal between Activision and Sony. Black Ops III’s previous expansion packs included Awakening, Eclipse, and Descent. These are all included with the $50 DLC pass.
The next Call of Duty game, Infinite Warfare, comes out on November 4. Activision is also releasing a remastered version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, but the only way get it is to buy one of Infinite Warfare’s premium editions, which start at $80.
