Treyarch, the creator of Call of Duty Zombies, has unveiled Shadows of Evil at this year’s Comic-Con, the new undead survival co-op mode launching on November 6 with Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Shadows of Evil made its world-wide debut last week at San Diego Comic-Con, which delivers a deep narrative and action-packed co-op survival experience that is signature to Treyarch’s strain of Zombies. Players are introduced to an all-star cast of characters, including Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, Ron Perlman and Robert Picardo.
“Treyarch has crafted a totally unique and face-melting gameplay experience for our loyal Zombies community, with Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombies – Shadows of Evil” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch. “The development team has packed Shadows of Evil with more gameplay and fun than any other experience before it, and has an appropriately twisted and deep narrative, performed by fantastic acting talent, that will keep our fans spinning. ”
Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombies – Shadows of Evil drops players into a recognisable yet terrifyingly unfamiliar world, as they uncover the secrets and challenges laid out for them by a shadowy figure, who holds their fate in his hands.
Set in a 1940’s film-noir era, Shadows of Evil introduces four unwitting characters – The Magician, The Femme-Fatale, The Cop and The Boxer – into an unraveling experience masterminded by the mysterious Shadow Man. Featuring voices and likenesses, the characters are played by Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Heather Graham (The Hangover 1-3, Californication), Neil McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Band of Brothers), Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy) and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager, Stargate SG-1).
Marking the world premiere, Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombies – Shadows of Evil took over San Diego Comic-Con with an action-packed lineup of activities and events for fans. Kicking off the show, Zombies was front and center at a panel hosted by YouTuber and Call of Duty Zombies fanatic, Syndicate (Tom Cassell).
The panel featured stars of the Call of Duty Zombies Treyarch series past and present, behind-the-scenes information and a first look of Shadows of Evil gameplay.
Throughout Comic-Con, fans could also step into the world of Shadows of Evil via an epic immersive experiential activity that placed them in the middle of an unrelenting Zombie onslaught, giving them a firsthand look at the survivors’ intertwined stories for the ultimate Call of Duty Zombies brought to life.
