Coinciding with the release of Awakening, Activision has announced that a 9.1GB patch for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will be released around 12pm PT/3pm ET tomorrow, February 2, for PlayStation 4.
Update: Patch 1.05 is now available on PS4. It’s around 9.4GB.
Unlike previous Call of Duty games where you’d download extra content separately, the Awakening DLC pack will be included inside this new patch. “This means there is no manual download of the DLC pack,” Activision said.
Here’s how to access Awakening beginning tomorrow:
Launch Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 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.
If you’ve downloaded the patch and Awakening doesn’t show up, Activision says to restart the game. If that doesn’t work, restart your system.
As for why the patch is so big, they said it will also include “several fixes and updates designed to improve and enhance the overall playing experience.”
Awakening is available first on PS4 tomorrow, with an Xbox One and PC launch happening a month later. As Activision announced earlier, it won’t be coming to PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.
