What do a washed up magician, a private eye, a cabaret singer looking for her shot at the big time and an aging fighter have to do with each other? They’re the brand new protagonists in the latest Call of Duty Zombies experience – Shadows of Evil – shipping with the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops III.
Activision released the prologue trailer for this new mode and honestly it has a pretty neat 30s/40s Noir Vibe to the whole thing – I am really digging it. Let’s hope that each of these four characters get some growth over the various Zombies episodes because each of them seem to have a story to tell. Whether that story is about exposing corruption in the government, fighting for a second chance or rising to the top of the entertainment each character has their own unique ambitions.
Alongside the trailer Activision released the following summary of Shadows of Evil:
Shadows of Evil introduces four unwitting characters who must uncover the secrets and challenges laid out for them by a shadowy figure, who offers them a path to redemption. Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, and Ron Perlman star in Shadows of Evil, a new survival co-op experience only available in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Unravel the secrets and explore a massive 1940s, film noir-inspired world in the deepest Zombies experience to date.
