Hey, Gamer Friends!
Have you heard?? Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 DLC 5 is set to release soon but with a zombie twist? I’m curious as to how you all feel about this… Call Of Duty has always been a relatively serious military style game and this new zombie twist has me feeing a bit confused. I have to do my research here and see if they can convince me to get on board with this. I mean, you guy’s know me and I do love me some good ole’ zombie fighting action so there’s a good chance that by then end of this article, I totally could be all about it. Let’s see what we can find out….
While the world may be focused in Call Of Duty: WW2 zombies campaign, Activision has been gearing up for the release of their Zombie Chronicles DLC 5 and none of us had a clue until just recently.
So, Activision has announced the actual release date and it is set for May 16th. It has been reported that it will be only released on PS4 at first but, no worries my Xbox & PC gamers… It will be available for us too but, we will have to wait another 30 days or so. I know, I know, sometimes life just isn’t fair but at least we know it’s coming and soon. Jason Blundell from Treyarch made the official announcement on JCbackfire’s YouTube channel. Treyarch will also be hosting a live stream today, Monday, May 8th where he will further discuss Zombie Chronicles. Here is his reveal video…
This is not the first time we’ve heard about the Zombie Chronicles, retailors from Mexico and Poland leaked information weeks ago, and of course we heard it from CharlieIntel first but, was removed quickly as it was considered too premature. Now we’re hearing it straight from the horses mouth, as Activision has now confirmed the release. CharlieIntel.com also mentioned that within the original images found, one name is worth bringing to our attention, the name Barbarossa. “In 1941, Hitler commanded an operation called operation Barbarossa, which was a mission to take over the Soviet Union,” says the Call Of Duty fan site. In addition to the leaks, the game has already been given a rating by ESRB… this makes sense for the May 16th release… games are only given a rating right before their release… this alone was a huge clue.
Zombie chronicles are reported to contain at least 8 fully remastered maps from Call Of Duty: World At War along with Call Of Duty Black Ops 1 & 2. Maps are also rumored to involve, Verruckt, Shi No Numa & Nacdt Der Untoten from World At War, Along with Kino Der Toten, Shangri-La, Ascension, Moon & Origins from Black Ops 1 & 2, Takeo and Richtofen calling cards, Dempsey Nikolai calling cards, zombies heroes animated calling cards and a limited edition camouflage tin can.
There is an interactive teaser launched by Sledgehammer games, clues can be found regarding this new zombie addition. So, here’s where you can do your own sort of research friends and comment with what you find… if you don’t mind… But, this is what I have found thus far.
The letters… IUFDJ BHLOP JMUBA can be seen on the helmets but only in certain light but, by typing those letters into the decoder on the teaser site, you will unlock two pictures along with a message stating. “A New Horror Rises.” I will leave the two images a secret.. it’ll be more fun for you if I don’t spoil it.
Black Ops 3 received high praise on IGN review list due to its “fleshed-out Zombie mode,” and fun co-op multiplayer modes, which they think, will be a very nice addition to these newly remastered maps. It also features a “Nightmares” mode which replaces all enemies with zombies. The campaign version was designed to support 4-player cooperative gameplay. In Zombie Chronicles, your character is an overly enhanced cyborg and this adaptation offers access to various special rewards and activities. The campaign also features its very own progression system. Meaning that unlock tokens must be acquired to purchase weapons and gear throughout.
Black Ops 3 takes place in the year 2065, roughly 40 years after the events of Black Ops 2. Our story follows a group of special ops soldiers as they track through the world now facing disturbing climate changes and new technologies.
It seems it is not yet confirmed if it will be available with a season pass or if it will simply have a stand alone fee. I wish I had more info on pricing and what not but it simply isn’t out there yet, however, with the release finally being announced we should be finding out the rest of the logistics very soon, I’m sure.
I was able to locate the official trailer…
I was also able to find a video showcasing the new maps… Its got really great info but, I’ll be honest… turn your volume down.. while this video is full of great content.. it is kinda loud. Just looking out for your ears my friends… I know how much you like to hear so yeah…LOL.
Well, my friends… I have given you all the info I have regarding the Zombie Chronicles. I hope you have enjoyed the read! As always…
