BO3 Awakening DLC Xbox One release time for US, UK

By Alan Ng - Mar 2, 2016

We are now just hours away from the highly anticipated Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Awakening DLC Xbox One release time for US and UK, after Xbox owners endured a painful wait having seen the content release first on PlayStation.

This is going to be an ongoing deal too, so after Awakening is out on Xbox One and PC the DLC 2 map pack will be exclusive on PS4 as well – just like Xbox owners enjoyed a similar deal with previous releases.

On to the main talking point though. Awakening DLC 1 is out on Xbox One and PC on March 3 which is a Thursday, so make sure you are aware of that since some may have expected a Tuesday release.

Activision nor Treyarch have announced an exact time for when the Awakening DLC download is live on the Xbox Marketplace and Steam.


We know from history though that this always tends to happen from 1am Pacific Time, or 4am Eastern Time onwards as Activision always stick to a pattern – if Awakening DLC is out at midnight on Xbox we will update this article accordingly.

The release times above for US means a UK release of around 9am so this is a good heads-up for when to start looking.

When the download is live, you should be able to find it at this link so keep refreshing the page on Thursday to get it early.

Use our comments section below to build up to the launch of Awakening on Xbox and PC – are you definitely buying it, despite the PlayStation exclusivity?

    • Gez

      It’s funny how these opinions only reared when playstation got the rights to a 30 day priority.
      Btw I’m on xbox have been for year fair is fair we had our time

      • Jealousy

        Our time was what, a week or so exclusive time. I’m just not a fan of the whole month time. I’d of been fine with a week or two, but a month is excessive.

        • Titsmcgee

          na man. it was 30 days

        • jake

          I don’t see the point in early releases though I mean we all are going to get the same dlcs but what is the point of having another console/platform receive a month early sorry I’m just curious

      • WSG eSports

        Actually in many countries it isn’t fair and in breach of competition regulations, particularly in the EU and UK. By law, the DLC should be released on all formats at the same time and by not doing so they are creating unfair competition.
