I’ll level with you all. It’s been quite a while since I last played a Zombies mode in Call of Duty. It might even go as far back as Black Ops II’s incredible TranZit. It seems in the time I’ve missed Zombies has grown exponentially into something massive and special. That’s only going off this new four minute long video which features a ton of gameplay alongside Avenged Sevenfold’s ‘Mad Hatter’. See for yourselves…
Crazy right? Did you see the Minotaur? As you can see, this is still zombies. The guns are there and the hordes are being mowed down, the mystery box returns and will always be the centre of attention for your squad. Traps and environmental hazards are shown off and there’s an emphasis on what makes the stage unique. In the case of the featured map, ‘XI’, it’s a Roman coliseum theme. It’s a glorious aesthetic that’ll allow players to absolutely revel in the gore and magnificence of the time period. Aspects like the Tiger coming into the arena and the crowd really add to not only the production value but the realism. They bring the environment and the set to life. This is only one of three experience which come together to provide players with the biggest Zombies package in Call of Duty history. One other map sees you board the Titanic, the third will see you return to Alcatraz. The XI and Titanic maps will feature a brand new storyline as well as four new characters.
The best news is you don’t have long to wait to try all of this out for yourself. Black Ops IIII launches October 12th on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Check out my impressions of the multiplayer mode right here. I’ll also have impressions of the Battle Royale mode; Blackout, coming very soon. Stick to thelootgaming.com for that and so much more.
Have your say!
