A new Call of Duty DLC is set for Xbox One and PC release several days from now. Eclipse, the second DLC expansion for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is arriving for Windows PC and the latest Microsoft console on May 19, Gotta Be Mobile reported.

The PS4 version of the second Call of Duty DLC was released on April 19, as part of the timed exclusivity deal between Sony and Activision wherein all the expansion packs for Black Ops 3 and the 2016 COD game will be available on the PlayStation 4 console first. Eclipse follows the Awakening DLC, Call of Duty's very first map pack released in February of this year, offering new Zombies and multiplayer content.

The second Call of Duty DLC Eclipse, according to Gamespot, brings in four additional multiplayer maps, namely Verge, Spire, Rift, and Knockout. Verge is the remake version of Banzai, a fan-favorite map from Call of Duty: World At War. With the Spire multiplayer map, the combat takes place in a "futuristic, sub-orbital airport terminal set high in the clouds," the official website of the game described. It features "multiple levels and open areas" where intense and mid-range battles happen.

In this map, players need to use the "unique core movement opportunities to outsmart and outplay enemies" while navigating through the suspended rail system. Knockout, lastly, is set in a "traditional Shaolin Temple with a retro twist," where gamers can anticipate a bloody Kung Fu match.

Moreover, according to the official Call of Duty website, fans excited for the upcoming DLC pack should also experience a new chapter in the Zombies mode of the game. Called Zetsubou No Shima, this latest chapter will continue the Origins storyline. An overview for this Call of Duty DLC described the Zetsubou No Shima chapter.

"In the latest chapter of the zombies experience, the origins characters find themselves stranded on a remote pacific island continuing their mission to stop the zombie apocalypse. There they will face the effects of element 115 on human, plant and animal biology that has created horrors beyond belief. Explore diverse environments from lush, tropical forest to the stark, overgrown laboratory facility using zip lines or the sewer systems to evade the zombie horde."
