Treyarch, the guys behind most of the Call of Duty games, has very recently announced the first details regarding the Zombie mode from the next entry in their most popular franchise, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
They have revealed that the new undead co-op survival mode will be named “Shadows of Evil”, and that, unlike the single-player campaign, this mode will be set in the past, more precisely in the 1940s.
Treyarch has also confirmed that this zombie mode will incorporate era-appropriate weapons but also new and frenetic weapons, just like a rocket-powered riot shield.
The map’s trailer also shows candy machines that will provide many varieties of candies to players, each with its own effect.
Shadow of Evil will also include the award-winning actors Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, Ron Perlman and Robert Picardo, which will act as the main villain, The Shadow Man.
Der Riese, one of the oldest zombie maps in the call of Duty franchise, will get its own remake in Black Ops 3’s, though Treyarch plans to change the name to “The Giant”.
This map will only be available to all those who preorder the game.

Activision has revealed the multiplayer aspect of Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare in prep for Gamescom, and does it ever look like frenetic fun. With a new engine, added mobility, and the idea of reinvigorating a dying franchise, Advanced Warfare seeks to seduce newcomers and long-time fans alike.
This new trailer demonstrates every reason you should be hyped up for multiplayer once again, especially after Ghosts, which was a let-down in every regard.
I, despite having a vendetta against yearly released franchises that do little to improve the formulae, love Call Of Duty. Games like Modern Warfare and Black Ops were loads of fun to play, with re-playability that kept the game fresh for months. Ghosts came out as a disappointment to most, and it seemed that the infamous IP was finally losing its audience. That is, until Advanced Warfare was shown off.
The game is set to on next-gen and current-gen platforms on the 4th of November, and I cannot wait to sink my teeth in.
Spotted by WhoIsDo on CoDForum, an E3 listing for Advanced Warfare suggests that the title will be released on the Wii U. Up until this point, the game was set to be released on next-gen platforms, PS3, Xbox 360, and the PC, and there has yet to be an official statement on the matter.
When you consider that both Black Ops 2 and Ghosts were released on the Wii U, this is not exactly surprising. One has to wonder how well the port will be handled however, as this will be Sledgehammer’s first foray into the realm of Nintendo.
It’s worth mentioning that Treyarch was responsible for porting Ghosts to it, so it might turn out that they’ll be handling Advanced Warfare, leaving Sledgehammer to focus on the other platforms. This is all speculation, and until this is either confirmed or denied, this news is best taken with a grain of salt.
