It’s been almost three years since we’ve seen Treyarch’s take on Call of Duty, but the Black Ops 3 Beta proves that the veteran studio hasn’t lost its expert touch.

Now the next round of Black Ops action is locked and loaded: the long-awaited Escalation DLC pack will be available in the PlayStation Store on Friday, June 10th.
Escalation features five big chunks of content – four multiplayer maps and one star-studded Zombies experience unlike any other. For fans of competitive combat, your new battlegrounds await:
For all the thousands of hours we spent making Call of Duty: Black Ops, hard core fans eclipsed that playing it many hundreds of thousands of times over. On a personal note, I’ve become a better player by playing with some of the best players from all over the world.
