The Zombies universe that we began building in 2008 has blossomed into something that we never could’ve imagined when we began the endeavor. What started as a simple wave-defense co-op game – an Easter Egg awarded for completing the campaign – evolved into the defacto “third-game-in-one” for the Call of Duty franchise with a hardcore community of fans. Simply put, it’s been nothing short of a thrill ride.
Get ready, PlayStation nation: the next DLC map pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is called Eclipse* and it’s launching first on PS4 April 19. Eclipse will give you four new multiplayer maps to flex your skills on — including a modern reimagining of the classic Call of Duty: World at War map, Banzai — as well as the next chapter in the Black Ops 3 Zombies saga: Zetsubou No Shima.
Before we sign off for the year, we wanted to celebrate the creators who make not only PlayStation.Blog, but this industry in its entirety possible. It’s these studios who create the worlds we yearn to escape to, who write the stories upon whose every word we hang. It’s thanks to them that we can do what we love to do.
I’m proud to announce that we are bringing together the number one console in the world with Call of Duty: Black Ops III in a brand new Call of Duty: Black Ops III Standard Edition PS4 Bundle, available for $349.99 (MSRP).
Treyarch’s Zombies is still my all-time favorite co-op shooter. It’s a chilling challenge that pits you and some friends against relentless waves of zombies. Your arsenal: constant communication, careful teamwork, and whatever firearms you can scrounge from the all-important Mystery Box. It’s demanding of its players but, in the end, an immensely rewarding experience that always pays off.
Black Ops III engrosses players in a dark and gritty future, where a new breed of Black Ops soldier has emerged, and the lines between humanity and military technology have been blurred.
It’s been almost three years since we’ve seen Treyarch’s take on Call of Duty, but the Black Ops 3 Beta proves that the veteran studio hasn’t lost its expert touch. The addition of selectable Specialist characters, wall-running shootouts worthy of a Wachowskis movie, and powerful new weapons all add up to a fresh and dynamic experience.
