“Treyarch has crafted a totally unique and face-melting gameplay experience for our loyal Zombies community, with Call of Duty: Black Ops III: Zombies – Shadows of Evil,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head, Treyarch. “The development team has packed Shadows of Evil with more gameplay and fun than any other experience before it, and has an appropriately twisted and deep narrative, performed by fantastic acting talent, that will keep our fans spinning.”
In addition, the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Juggernog Collector’s Edition was revealed and is set to include a fully-functioning mini-refrigerator modeled after the iconic Juggernog Perk-a-Cola dispenser from Call of Duty Zombies, the Call of Duty: Black Ops III Season Pass and The Giant, a remake of Der Rise, one of the all-time fan favorite Treyarch Zombies maps. The Call of Duty: Black Ops III Hardened Edition and Digital Deluxe Edition also include The Giant Zombies map.
Activision also announced a new campaign through charity fundraising platform Omaze, which gives Call of Duty fans a chance to become a zombie in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. This effort will raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit organization founded by Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick, which funds best-in-class nonprofits helping veterans find good jobs after their service. Activision Blizzard is also matching each donation dollar for dollar up to $1,000,000. Starting today, and running through August 31, 2015, fans can enter by donating $10 or more to the Call of Duty Endowment via Omaze for a chance to be zombified at Treyarch and appear in Call of Duty: Black Ops III DLC. The winner will also have their name immortalized in a Zombies mode level, have lunch with Treyarch Studio Head Mark Lamia, and receive a behind-the-scenes tour of the studio behind the game.
