Yes, the rumors are true: the weekend of March 15-18 is Free Maps Weekend.
Kicking off on March 15 at 10 AM PT, all four Black Ops Pass maps are free to play for all players. That means you’ll get to explore four exciting locations – Casino, Lockup, Madagascar and Elevation – with the entire community all weekend-long. Here’s a quick rundown of each of the maps to ensure you hit the ground fragging.
Local warlords have ambushed a convoy of medical supplies en route to this village where an outbreak teeters on the brink of disaster. This map features varied sightlines and lengths of engagement that work well for ARs and Tac Rifles. But the close engagement opportunities of the main village can play well for SMGs and Shotguns. No matter your loadout, Madagascar offers exciting combat and fresh opportunities to discover which weapons work best for a new location.
Discover a remote Nepalese village that is the stage for a dangerous rescue mission after an assault on a military transport helicopter leaves it grounded and its high value contents missing. This map features small buildings and tight corners that force you to be wary of enemies lurking around corners or upper levels of buildings. With its bright colors and littered remains of the failed rescue mission, like a crashed helicopter, Elevation offers a fun and varied combat experience all players can enjoy.
Expect varied, end-to-end engagements as you traverse around slot machines, dining lounges, and even a kitchen as you work your way to the heart of the Casino. Use the cover of toppled tables or coordinate to lock down the centralized bar to spot and eliminate enemies. The roman-themed Casino offers a luxurious and high-stakes combat experience that caters to different playstyles.
Navigate the interior of the police station through the lobby, cafeteria and armory – only one of these offers protection from open skylights that enemies can utilize to rain death from above. Use the stairs, ladders or other objects to rise above the ground assault and take part in the fierce vertical combat and battle for control of the police station rooftops. Lockup’s unique vertical gameplay presents opportunities for strategic, chaotic and tactical combat for an unexpected experience every time your boots hit the ground.
Head into a match before March 18 at 10 AM PT and enjoy these gorgeous, chaotic new landscapes.
