This year, the studio that pioneered the Call of Duty zombies experience is back with Shadows of Evil—a new zombies cooperative mode launching with Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on November 6. Revealed today at San Diego Comic-Con, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3: Zombies – Shadows of Evil features a gritty 1940s film-noir narrative with an all-new cast of characters led by an all-star cast, including Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Heather Graham (The Hangover 1 & 3, Californication), Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Band of Brothers), Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy), and Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager, Star Gate SG-1).
As four unwitting characters—The Magician, The Femme-Fatale, The Cop, and The Boxer—players will be tasked with uncovering the secrets and challenges laid out for them by The Shadow Man, a mysterious figure that controls their fates. Get a first glimpse of Shadows of Evil in the reveal trailer shown during today’s panel:
In addition to the star-studded cast and reveal trailer, the Call of Duty Endowment also revealed a new fundraising sweepstakes in partnership with Omaze, which gives Call of Duty fans a chance to become one of the undead in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s zombies DLC. Starting today and running through August 31, fans can enter by donating $10 or more to the Call of Duty: Endowment, which helps veterans find jobs after their service. Fans may also enter without a donation (see www.omaze.com for details). Alongside an opportunity to become a zombie in a future Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 DLC pack, fans will also have a chance to partake in once in a lifetime experiences, like a tour of Treyarch and lunch with studio head Mark Lamia and other members of the zombies development team.
Last, but certainly not least, today’s panel also included a first look at the Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Juggernog Edition and Hardened Edition versions, which include exclusive collectibles and in-game content.
