Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Descent Expansion “Berserk” Map Overview

Just last week, Treyarch gave us a quick look at Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s re-imagined “Raid” map from its upcoming Descent expansion. Now, it’s doing so once again, but this time, it’s the new map, Berserk.

You can check out the snowy viking village where you’ll be shooting a lot of stuff up in the embedded tweet below.

Those still gaming on the PS3, don’t forget that Descent will not be available on last-gen platforms. The other maps available in Descent will be:


  • Empire: Treyarch adapts its Black Ops III movement system to the Call of Duty: Black Ops II 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 III.

  • 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 Black Ops 3 Descent DLC pack will make its way onto the PS4 this July 12, with the PC and Xbox One getting it a month after.
