Activision launched a condensed teaser trailer featuring "Skyjacked," one of the multiplayer maps which are part of the much awaited Awakening expansion for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

You may take a sneak peak at it, below. 

Observant users might notice a strong resemblance between the Skyjacked map and the Hijacked arena, which was part of the Black Ops II title. While the older map pitted players against each other on a posh yacht, the upcoming map makes takes the conflict above the clouds, in a quad-copter flying ship.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's universe will get more than just the revamped Hijacked map. Three other arenas dubbed Gauntlet, Rise and Splash are part of the extended package. "Dead Snow" fans and zombie map enthusiasts will be happy to know that The Awakening brings a new Zombie map called Der Eisendrachen, literally meaning "The Iron Dragon."

Fans of the Call of Duty series who own a PlayStation 4 will get their hands on the expansion on Feb. 2, while PC and Xbox One owners have to wait a little longer. As no official information came from Activision, we cannot say how much longer it will take for the Awakening to reach other platforms outside PS4.

It should be noted that the expansion has no backwards compatibility, meaning that Xbox 360 and PS 3 owners will be stuck with playing the game sans expansions, at least for now.

Speaking of the older generation of consoles, players who still use PS 3 and Xbox 360 cannot access the single player campaign in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.

"The ambitious scope of the 1-4 player coop Campaign design of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions could not be faithfully recreated on old generation hardware," Activision said.

Call of Duty loyalists know that the Awakening is just the first of the four expansion packs announced for the game. Sony and Activision signed a partnership in 2015, which gives Japanese console owners earlier access to the expansion.

The two companies also imposed early access rights for Destiny, so that a lot of content for the sci-fi themed FPS reached PlayStation players much earlier than their Xbox One counterparts.

PlayStation VP of Publisher & Developer, Adam Boyes, told Gamespot that he was bewildered by Black Ops 3 the first time the played it.

"We fell in love instantly," Boyes said.
