Black Ops Pass Owners will also gain access to two additional multiplayer maps, Lair and Launch, along with one new villain. Operation Dark Divide also concludes the ten-years running Aether storyline in the Zombies adventure ‘Tag Der Toten’.

Here’s what’s included for Black Ops Pass user, first on PS4:

  • New Multiplayer Map, Lair – Set in the lair of a mega villain, this medium-sized map is built around a volcano’s caldera. Players must weave around the multi-level map to strategically gain the upper hand before the volcanically powered Death Laser goes off.
  • Multiplayer Map, Launch – Reimagined from the original Call of Duty®: Black Ops, Launch is a medium-sized map set in a launch pad at a Soviet Cosmodrome. Players will have to make sure they don’t get caught in the middle of the rocket launch during the fire fight.
  • The Zombies Experience, Tag Der Toten – The Victis Crew returns for their final outing of the Aether storyline. The last chapter of a decades long epic in the making is here for players to immerse themselves into. Elements of the fan-favorite Call of the Dead map have been re-imagined and expanded, so players can explore new areas and solve ever increasingly difficult Easter Eggs that tell the real story.

Like the free update, the pass content will be made available on PC and Xbox One once the exclusivity period ends.
