Like Skyrim with guns!

Descent, the next DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, is on its way, and it involves fighting zombies and dragons...at the same time.

Activision stated that "Gorod Krovi," the newest mission in the Zombies saga, will take place in an alternate Soviet Union during the 1940s. Players will "face-off against a swarm of mechanized zombie infantry and dodge hell-fire from aerial dragon assaults" in the ruins of Stalingrad. The mission will also feature new enemies, weapons, and gameplay mechanics, including a shield shaped like a dragon that seems to unleash emerald fire.

Descent will also include four new multiplayer maps:

  • "Empire," a Roman villa and re-imagining of the Black Ops 2 map "Raid"
  • "Cryogen," a cryogenic prison compound in the middle of the Dead Sea
  • "Berserk," a blizzard-prone viking village
  • "Rumble," a battle arena littered with fallen giant robots

Descent will be coming to the PlayStation 4 on July 12, with Xbox One and PC versions to follow at an unspecified date.
