Black Ops 3's season pass includes classic maps & zombies, but ditches last gen

We already knew that Black Ops 3 was ditching campaign (opens in new tab) on last-gen, now it looks like it's leaving out some of the multiplayer as well.

New details on the Xbox season pass page (opens in new tab) state that the "Season Pass delivers 4 epic DLC map packs in 2016 with all-new multiplayer content, including re-imagined fan-favourite maps from Call of Duty: World at War and the Call of Duty: Black Ops series". There's also a new zombies map called 'The Giant'. That's a reimagining of the original "Der Riese" Zombies map, complete with Pack-a-Punch machines that promises to "pick up the Zombies story with Dempsey, Nikolai, Richtofen, and Takeo where Origins left off".

The downside to all this is that the info ends with the disclaimer "Season Pass and 'The Giant' Zombies bonus map are not available on Xbox 360." It's not leaving much for the last-gen crowd really: no campaign, and a now reduced online offering.
