Call of Duty®: Black Ops III Zombies is the most immersive and ambitious Call of Duty® Zombies to date. Shadows of Evil will bring darkness and chaos like never before, while delivering a totally unique and highly creative gameplay setting, complete with a mind-blowing experience with a captivating storyline, as well as its own XP Progression System.
Set in a fictional 1940s city, Shadows of Evil is a film-noir-inspired horror story centered around four particularly troubled individuals – The Femme Fatale, The Magician, The Cop and The Boxer – and spans an entire Metropolis swathed in evil… Welcome to Morg City.
Each of the four characters awaken to a nightmarish world overrun by the undead. Each character fights to overcome confusion and amnesia – in the hope that they may piece together the events that brought them to this twisted world.
Shadows of Evil introduces players to The Femme Fatal, The Magician, The Cop and The Boxer – and these are not nice people. Every one of them is a lying, conniving, manipulative and selfish individual with a long sordid history of past misdeeds.
- Femme Fatal - she belongs in motion pictures, but instead works as a burlesque dancer at the city's most "upscale" nightclub - where she inevitably attracts the attention of many powerful men, manipulating their weaknesses and desires for her own ends.
- The Magician - born into enormous wealth, The Magician grew up surrounded by lackeys and sycophants... and a lifetime of constant praise and attention has only fueled his deeply misplaced arrogance.
- The Cop - after years of taking mob bribes and framing innocent men, The Cop is a likely suspect in a department-wide corruption investigation... The timing of which couldn't be worse.
- The Boxer - besides removing the padding from his gloves, The Boxer wore a pair of brass knuckles hidden beneath his hand wraps - he wasn't just looking to win, he was looking to cause damage.
The Future of Combat. 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. You must navigate the hot spots of a new Cold War to find your missing brothers. While much has changed, one thing remains the same: everything you know may be wrong. How far down the rabbit hole are you willing to go to uncover the disturbing truth?
