Eyes up, zombies and campaign fans. New details on both modes have surfaced today following a small Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 info blowout.
First up, Treyarch has released the official prologue for Black Ops 3’s new zombies mode called Shadows of Evil. It gives a proper introduction to each of the four new, and very shady, characters voiced by Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, and Ron Perlman.
Also Zombies-related, PlayStation 4 users who took part in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Beta are getting a free Morg City dynamic theme, based on the setting of Shadows of Evil. Check it out in action:
And here’s how to get it:
- Navigate to the PlayStation®Store from your PS4™ system Home Screen
- Press Triangle and select Search, then type in “Black Ops III”
- Select “Call of Duty®: Black Ops III”
- Scroll down to “Themes” – “Morg City Zombies Theme” and download the theme
- After the download is complete, navigate to the PS4 Home Screen – “Settings” – “Themes” to select the theme
Onto a few new campaign details that we’ve rounded up from multiple sources.
Tactical Mode – Tactical Mode, like many of the new mechanics in Black Ops 3’s campaign, is level agnostic. It can be switched on and off and helps highlight threats via a virtual reality ‘Threat Map’ on the ground. It can also display the blast radius of explosives and enemy types while making you aware of what lines of sight the enemy has on you.
Campaign & Level Structure – All co-op campaign levels are unlocked from the beginning, allows co-op partners to join in with others at any point in the story. Level design, enemy AI, and player abilities have all been built around co-op gameplay.
Realistic Mode – All players have one point of life, which will make relying on your co-op companions essential. According to Treyarch, it’s meant to change the way you move through a level, rewarding a more cautious approach. Lastly, the AI has also been rewritten to make independent decisions while many new types of AI will also be present.
Excited to try out Black Ops 3’s new Realistic Mode? We’re curious to know just how hardcore it is actually going to be. Sounds like you’ll need a few pals to help you thought it, if you don’t have the patience to restart checkpoints over and over.
