Hot on the heels of the fresh new information we’ve gotten about the new expansion, Activision has released a new trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles, which will be coming to the PlayStation 4 this month and later for Xbox One and PC.
The expansion features eight classic Zombies maps from previous Treyarch Call of Duty releases, remastered for play in Black Ops III, including Moon, Shangri-La and several other fan favorites. It’s currently priced at $30.
In the trailer, which you can see below, it begins in a subtle manner, with a little girl looking into a snow globe. However, it doesn’t take us long to realize that sinister forces are at play, as some unseen spirit begins to fly through a series of familiar maps included in the expansion, slowly affecting certain portions of the map with some kind of spiritual push, including pieces on a chessboard and toys that are scattered on the floor.
Soon after, the zombies in question begin showing up, popping up on the Moon map and other locations, and the dark tone for the game begins to set in with a change in the music, starting simple but soon moving into a haunting melody that sets the stage for the action that’s set to come with the expansion.
The spirit flies in and out of the snow globe, but by the end, something mysterious happens. The little girl who was looking at it suddenly vanishes – and then she walks into the doorway. She has no idea what happened, but sees the snow globe on the ground, as well as a cracked window, which she manages to shut. That’s where the trailer ends.
It’s a unique approach for a Call of Duty trailer, especially based upon what we saw previously with Call of Duty: WWII, but it’s very effective, and really sets for the tone for the expansion that’s set to drop next week. Plus, fans really seem to enjoy it on YouTube, giving it a whole bunch of likes.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles arrives on May 16th for PlayStation 4, and later on for Xbox One and PC. It’ll set you back $30, as it’s currently not part of the Season Pass package.
