Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles is coming soon, and arrives with a special event.
On May 16, eight remastered Zombies maps will be available on PS4. What started as an Easter Egg in Call of Duty: World at War has exploded into a franchise staple. Nowadays, it is impossible to buy a Call of Duty game that doesn’t have some form of Zombies. However, we can’t forget that it was Treyarch that first popularized the mode in their 2008 title, and what better way to remember all the good times than with Zombies Chronicles, the fifth DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
“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,” said Rob Kostich, EVP and General Manager of Call of Duty, Activision. “We’re excited to share with fans these incredible moments in one comprehensive offering, available together on current generation hardware.”
“Zombies Chronicles is really about the community that made Zombies what it has become today,” said Jason Blundell, Co-Studio Head, Treyarch. “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.”
As announced last week, Zombies Chronicles remasters eight Zombies maps from the previous three Treyarch games. The maps have been upgraded to feature enhanced lighting, revamped character models and environments, and updated AI. Here’s everything you get in the pack:
- Call of Duty: World at War – Nacht Der Untoten, Verruckt, and Shi No Numa
- Call of Duty: Black Ops – Kino der Toten, Ascension, Shangri-La, and Moon
- Call of Duty: Black Ops II – Origins
- 20 Vials of Liquid Divinium
- 2 All-New GobbleGums
- Exclusive Zombies Pack-A-Punch Camo
- Black Ops III Zombies III Dynamic System Theme for PS4 (pre-order exclusive)
In celebration of Zombies Chronicles, Activision and Treyarch will kick off the “8 Days of the Undead” event. During this event, players of Black Ops III on all platforms, and players of Zombies Chronicles on PS4 can earn double XP, participate in community challenges, and receive free content like calling cards and weapon camps.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles launches first on PS4, and will not be free for anyone. Even if you have the Season Pass, this DLC of remastered Zombies maps will cost you a whopping $29.99. It should also be noted that this DLC does not come with any competitive multiplayer maps.
