Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies – Shadows of Evil revealed

Another gaming company making their mark at this year’s Comic-Con is Activision. The publisher revealed new details about Zombies in Treyarch’s upcoming entry in the Call of Duty franchise, Black Ops III. During Zombies Panel, it was announced that the game will include Zombies – Shadows of Evil, a new narrative-driven survival co-op mode featuring Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Ron Perlman, and others. Adopting a noir-style theme, Shadows of Evil follows four characters (The Boxer, The Cop, the Femme-Fatale, and The Magician) as they fight to survive against an obscure enemy known as Shadow Man. The Juggernog Collector’s Edition was also on display, which will come with a Season Pass, The Giant map (a remake of Der Rise), and of course, a mini-fright modeled after the Juggernog Perk-a-Cola dispenser. Screenshots and pics of the different versions have been posted below.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III screens, trailer released, launching Nov. 6

After last week’s Ember teaser, Activision has followed up with not only a new trailer but also the first screenshots as well as the official release date for Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Treyarch will be making their return to the series after three years on Friday, November 6. Announced features include support for four-player co-op in campaign, a new, separate progression system for Zombies, a new weapon customizations system, and the new Specialist system, which allows players to rank and customize up to nine characters. Exo Suits will not be making a return from Advanced Warfare, but the high-tempo approach will remain in multiplayer with “a new momentum-based, chained-movement system,” which will allow for “players to move fluidly through custom-built environments with finesse.” Also, starting today, all pre-orders will receive access to the upcoming multiplayer beta.
