EIGHT fully remastered maps from classic CoD Zombies experiences are coming to Black Ops III. Get hype.
Activision have today finally revealed Zombies Chronicles for Call of Duty Black Ops III, which brings together eight classic Zombies maps from the World at War, Black Ops and Black Ops II.
The package, which is digital only, will be available to download first on PlayStation 4 and includes fully remastered versions of the Treyarch developed maps that got us all hooked on Zombies in the first place.
Rob Kostich, EVP and General Manager of Call of Duty had to this say;
“Call of Duty’s Zombies has earned a special place in our hearts through its deep, layered gameplay, imaginative storylines and its compelling waves of action, which spans multiple titles.
We’re excited to share with fans these incredible moments in one comprehensive offering, available together on current generation hardware.”
Jason Blundell, Co-Studio Head, Treyarch;
“Zombies Chronicles is really about the community that made Zombies what it has become today. Together, we’ve been slaying the undead for nearly ten years, across different game consoles, and Zombies Chronicles is really about bringing all of those fans together.
If you played these maps before on previous consoles, you’re getting a new, stunning and challenging experience – if it’s your first time, this is eight definitive experiences of our Zombies storyline, all in one place.”
Included are these eight maps:
Nacht der Untoten (Abandoned Bunker), Verruckt (Wittenau Sanitorium) and Shi No Numa (Jungle Swamp) from World at War
Kino Der Toten (YES!) (Theater of the Dead), Ascensions (Soviet Cosmodrome), Shangri-La (Exotic Jungle Shrine) and Moon (Lunar Base) from Black Ops.
