Treyarch and Activision released the first trailer for the beloved zombie mode on the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops III at the San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday. This installment of the raising of the dead version will be titled “Shadows of Evil,” and it looks tremendous!
The survival co-op experience will have a full story that will be set in the 1940’s, and feature the voice acting Jeff Goldblum, Ron Perlman, Heather Graham, Robert Picardo and Neal McDonough.
Treyarch describes the new mode:
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.
Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch said this of the walking dead:
“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.”
