The way DLC packs are obtained in Black Ops 3 will differ to previous titles in the series according to a new support post by Activision.
The Awakening DLC pack for Black Ops 3 will be bundled into a patch that is being released on 02/02/2016. The patch will be released at midday Pacific time on 02/02/2016 for PS4 users. This differs to previous titles by having to go into the console store and downloading the content as additional content.
How to install Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC
Launch Call of Duty: Black Ops III to trigger the patch and allow the game to update as normal. Once the update is fully downloaded, Season Pass owners and players who have purchased the Awakening DLC pack individually will simply need to activate the content through the in-game store.
- Select Store from the main menu.
- Select Map Packs.
- Select Awakening DLC to activate the DLC pack.
Once Awakening is activated, players have immediate access to the four new multiplayer maps as well as the first chapter of the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies adventure.
