Descent is the third DLC pack to be released for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Along with four new multiplayer maps, it comes with a new Zombies experience.

Here's more straight from Activision:

Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops 3 movement system to the Black Ops 2 fan favorite map Raid. The re-imagining of this classic, medium-sized map features an authentic Roman villa that has been "recreated by a modern-day eccentric billionaire," where a classic map structure mixes with the new gameplay mechanics of Black Ops 3.

Cryogen: Located far off the coast in the Dead Sea, an isolated compound holds some of the world's most dangerous criminals in frozen isolation. Sentry towers keep watch over the small map's circular design as frenetic combat is funneled around the prison's cryogenic tubes, where opportunities for wall running attacks abound.

Berserk: Ancient sentinels from a lost civilization guard the entrance to Berserk, a Viking village frozen in time. Players will fight through blizzards, and control the center bridge as they navigate this medium-sized map's wooden buildings, deadly rocky outcroppings, and tight chokepoints.

Rumble: Gamers battle amongst larger-than-life mechanized warriors in Rumble, a stadium where giant robots battle to the roar of the crowd. This medium-sized map funnels high-speed combat to the central arena, where players battle their way through fallen mechs and pyrotechnics.

The new Zombies experience takes place in Nikolai's motherland, an alternative history of 1940s Soviet Union. Players will face a swarm of mechanized zombie infantry and aerial dragon assaults within the remnants of Stalingrad.

Descent will be made available on PlayStation 4 July 12 for $15, unless you own the $49.99 Black Ops 3 season pass.

It will be made available on PC and Xbox One in August.
