Treyarch unveiled Shadows of Evil; the all-new undead survival co-op mode for Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Shadows of Evil made its debut at San Diego Comic-Con and delivers an incredibly rich and deep narrative and action-packed co-op survival experience that is signature to Treyarch’s strain of Zombies.
“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” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch. “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.”
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 unravelling experience masterminded by the mysterious Shadow Man. Featuring voices and likenesses, the characters are played by Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neil McDonough, Ron Perlman and Robert Picardo.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Juggernog Collector’s Edition was also revealed at Comic-Con. The limited Juggernog Collector’s Edition comes packed with a fully-functioning mini-refrigerator modelled after the iconic Juggernog Perk-a-Cola dispenser from Call of Duty Zombies, the Season Pass and The Giant, a remake of Der Rise, one of the all-time fan favourite Treyarch Zombies maps. The Hardened Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition also include The Giant Zombies map.
Additionally revealed today at San Diego Comic Con, Activision Blizzard launched an exciting campaign with charity fundraising platform Omaze, which gives Call of Duty fans a chance to become a zombie in the upcoming shooter.
