There are three sets of Call of Duty: Black Ops fans. Multiplayer, Zombies and both. Toss me into the ‘both’ camp.
Zombies mode is back in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 and it’s called Shadows of Evil. It’s set in a 1940’s film-noir era and stars Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, Ron Perlman and Robert Picardo.
Jeff Goldblum!? Awesome!
Ok, that looks fantastic.
Activision and Treyarch dropped the new details and trailer at Comic-Con today.
The new trailer shows off some new and returning features. Pack-a-punch is back. Fast forward to 0:49 in the trailer to hear its trademark gun sound.
Melee weapons are also featured more prominently this go around.
And, a rocket-powered riot shield.
WTF? This is cool as hell.
One of the new mechanics is a candy machine that gives you various powers. One of the powers makes zombies avoid you.
Another turns you into something straight out of The Darkness.
Treyarch also offered a quick description of Shadows of Evil:
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.
It gets better. Pick up the season pass and you get access to The Giant, a remake of the popular Zombies map Der Rise. The Hardened Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition also come with the Der Rise remake.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Juggernog Edition
That wasn’t the only good news for Zombies fans. Treyarch officially announced (it leaked early) the Juggernog Edition. Gone are the RC Cars and Night-Vision goggles of old. For $199, you can get your hands on a fully functional mini-fridge designed after the Juggernog vending machine.
It can hold 12 of your favorite 12 oz beverages. Hell yeah! Let’s all embrace our laziness while shooting some zombies this November.
Here’s an image of the mini-fridge at Comic-Con.
