The Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC release date is March 3, but you can download the new DLC maps and Zombies experience now.
As of March 2 in the East, Microsoft has enabled the required ad in the UK. On your Xbox, you can change your console region to UK, start the ad, download the Awakening Black Ops 3 maps early, and then go back to playing offline. You may need the Season Pass to see the ad.

This guide will show you how to download the Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC and play the Awakening DLC Maps on Xbox One early.
After a month of exclusivity, the Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC release date is coming on March 3, but you can start downloading the new maps today and you can now purchase the Awakening DLC for $14.99 without purchasing the Season Pass.
If you want all the map packs, you can purchase the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Season Pass for $49.99. This guide also allows you to start the Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC download if you have already purchased the season pass.
Here’s what you need to do to early download the Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC.
The first thing you need to do is go to your Xbox One Control Panel. Here, on the right, you should see an Ad for the Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC. If you don’t see it, hold down the left and right trigger, then press Y to refresh the clipboard. When you see the ad, select it and you’ll be greeted with a screen asking you to purchase the Awakening Xbox One Black Ops 3 DLC and the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Season Pass.
Even if you have already purchased the Xbox One Black Ops 3 Season Pass, you must select the Buy Now option.
This will take you to the Xbox Store where you will see the option to purchase the Awakening Black Ops 3 DLC 1 now. If you’ve already redeemed your Season Pass, this will show an option to preload the Awakening Black Ops 3 maps on Xbox One.
Select install, wait for the small 10MB file to download and then you can go to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 game on Xbox One and the maps are ready.
The file is small because the maps actually arrived on your console with the February Black Ops 3 update last month. We expect a March Black Ops 3 update to arrive on Xbox One soon, featuring new fixes and the changes we’ve seen in PS4 Black Ops 3 1.07 update.
If you choose Local Play in the Xbox One Black Ops 3 menu, you can create an offline game and then select new DLC maps to travel, ambush others, and learn the fastest way to get around each map. The video above goes over this and shows Xbox One Black Ops 3 Awakening Gameplay on Splash.
