Treyarch and Activision released a new trailer for the upcoming release of the Eclipse DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. The trailer focuses on the new zombie adventure, Zetsubou No Shima.
The trailer is nearly two minutes of non-stop zombie action, previewing the brand new map, some of its killer traps, crazy tunnels, hidden secrets and new foes. You can check out the trailer below.
Among all the repeatedly big bass drops, there’s a lot of stuff they showcase within a very short amount of time. We get to see that the new map centers around a Japanese testing facility where the undead roam around freely, we see that the facility appears to have been under some sort of bombing threat, hence the left over plane parts littering the area – one of which works as a Mortal Kombat-style blender for anyone unlucky enough to get caught under the spinning propellers – and there appears to be multiple ways to get around the island.
The facility played host to experiments using Element 115 and was supposedly located in a remote island in the Pacific. Takeo Masaki also makes a return to the zombie fighting efforts, likely helping the others as they battle against the forces of the undead.
The zombie maps in Call of Duty are strangely a lot bigger than I would have expected. There are a lot of ins and outs to each of the maps, and various segregated sections cobbled together with corridors, stairwells and tunnels. In the case of Zetsubou No Shima, we see that there are some new underwater segments for players to explore, along with some tunnels that see the characters sliding around to get from one place to the next. Based on the design it looks as if the service tunnel leads from the lab to the outside.
There are some new weapons, returning weapons, new traps, returning power-ups and some new foes to face off against. The spiders don’t get much screen time but they appear as if they could give players a bit of a problem due to their size… I imagine they’ll be especially effective against those playing with arachnophobia.
You can look for the Eclipse DLC with the brand new zombie map to go live first on the PS4 starting April 19th. It’ll arrive a short while thereafter for the Xbox One and PC.
