Activision just revealed “Shadows of Evil,” the brand new zombie experience coming for Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Interestingly, it’s a full departure from the rest of the game, as it’s set in Chicago in the 40’s, and will include new weapons and characters from that period.
Treyarch Studio Head Mark Lamia accompanied the press release with a comment:
“Treyarch has crafted a totally unique and face-melting gameplay experience for our loyal Zombies community, with Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombies – Shadows of Evil: The development team has packed Shadows of Evil with more gameplay and fun than any other experience before it, and has an appropriately twisted and deep narrative, performed by fantastic acting talent, that will keep our fans spinning. “
We also get some additional info:
“Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombies – Shadows of Evil drops players into a recognizable yet terrifyingly unfamiliar world, as they uncover the secrets and challenges laid out for them by a shadowy figure, who holds their fate in his hands. Set in a 1940’s film-noir era, Shadows of Evil introduces four unwitting characters – The Magician, The Femme-Fatale, The Cop and The Boxer – into an unraveling experience masterminded by the mysterious Shadow Man. Featuring voices and likenesses, the characters are played by Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Heather Graham (The Hangover 1-3, Californication), Neil McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Band of Brothers), Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager, Stargate SG-1).”
The press release also introduced the Juggernog Collector’s Edition.
“Making its debut at San Diego Comic-Con, the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Juggernog Collector’s Edition is the unparalleled offering for the die-hard Call of Duty Zombies fan. The limited Juggernog Collector’s Edition comes packed with a fully-functioning mini-refrigerator modeled after the iconic Juggernog Perk-a-Cola dispenser from Call of Duty Zombies, the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Season Pass and The Giant, a remake of Der Rise, one of the all-time fan favorite Treyarch Zombies maps. The Call of Duty: Black Ops III Hardened Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition, also include The Giant Zombies map.”
