Rockers, it has been a long an exciting 8 years since Call of Duty: World at War first released and introduced us to the Nazi Zombies storyline. Since then there have been twenty-three zombies maps that have introduced us to new perks, weapons, characters, and ways to survive while fighting off the undead. Next month, Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Salvation DLC is scheduled to be released and we might end up saying goodbye to the four characters that we have grown to love over the last eight years.
Earlier today, Treyarch released a press statement saying this, “Salvation Delivers the Culmination of the Timeless Treyarch Zombies Experience That’s Been Eight Years in the Making; It Also Includes Four Action-Packed Multiplayer Maps. The Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Salvation DLC Map Pack PS4 Pre-Orders Includes An Exclusive Zombies Dynamic Theme. Call of Duty Black Ops III DLC 4 entitled Salvation will arrive first on PlayStation 4 on September 6, with other next-gen platforms to follow. Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Salvation DLC, delivers the reality-altering finale of the Origins Zombies adventure, and four action-packed multiplayer environments for fans.
“Without a doubt, this is the most epic season of DLC that we’ve ever created for fans of Multiplayer and Zombies,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch. “At this point it goes without saying, that Zombies has been a true labor of love for the studio, and I’m proud to say that this will be a defining and epic experience for the fans who have joined us over the last 8 years.”
Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Salvation DLC features Revelations, the long-awaited final chapter in the Origins Zombies saga. In Revelations, we meet up with the Origins characters after they’ve taken an epic journey through space and time – all of their struggles lead to this very moment. In this, the final chapter of the Zombies experience, Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai finally come face to face with the mysterious Doctor Monty in The House. Confronted by an ancient evil, our heroes must fight the zombie horde once more in the final battle to save their immortal souls.
“With the release of Zombies as an Easter Egg in 2008’s Call of Duty®: World at War, Treyarch set forth on a journey – or, really a conversation – with fans, and Revelations is the final punctuation mark,” said Jason Blundell, Director of Zombies, Treyarch. “The secrets we laid out years ago will finally make sense – we’ve been waiting a long time for this.”
During the Revelations zombies map, Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai will have to restore balance to the universe and save their younger selfs. Can the four take down the Shadow man and the apocathons?
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Salvation is also loaded with four new action-packed multiplayer maps that jettison players from the ancient walls of a medieval fortress to the deceptively quaint setting of a backyard picnic.
- Citadel: Once home to a powerful medieval army, this ancient castle now sits broken and abandoned. Tight corners force close-quarters engagements, while the moat and drawbridge allows for unique player movement opportunities in this mid-sized map. The last trespassers didn’t make it out alive – maybe you’ll have a better shot.
- Micro: What’s better than a BBQ on a hot summer day? A miniaturized war zone that takes place on a well-stocked family picnic table, that’s what! Navigate this bite-size battlefield for a larger-than-life experience.
- Outlaw: Gear up for a showdown in Outlaw; a western-style re-imagining of the fan-favorite map Standoff from Call of Duty®: Black Ops II. This rough-and-tough medium-sized map brings classic engagements, flanking routes and strategic positions for long and medium ranged combat.
- Rupture: The Call of Duty®: World at War classic Outskirts is re-imagined as a high-tech facility, designed by a futuristic society desperate to repair the Earth’s atmosphere.
Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Salvation DLC is now available for pre-order on PlayStation 4 at a discounted rate via theCall of Duty: Black Ops III DLC Season Pass, which also features the three DLC Map Packs already released this year. Players can purchase the Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Salvation Map Pack individually for a retail price of $15. Call of Duty Black Ops III Salvation DLCwill be released on September 6 for PlayStation 4. Expect for the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Salvation DLC to be available on Xbox One and PC on October 4th.
The Revelations and Salvation trailer looks exciting and may just be the end of our beloved zombie-slaying heroes. Check out the announcement trailer and teasers below. At the moment there is no word about whether or not a 5th map pack will be released with additional zombies maps. If this is the end for Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo, and Nikolai will the zombies universe continue on using Russman, Misty, Marlton, and Samuel J. Stuhlinger as the main characters?
