Call of Duty Black Ops 3 Zombies

Although Call of Duty: Black Ops III's main story campaign will be set in the distant future, its take on the series' popular Zombie Mode will play host to a 1940s film-noir setting. A new trailer unveiled at the San Diego Comic Con has given us a glimpse into what's changed – and, perhaps more importantly, what's stayed the same.

Dubbed 'Shadows of Evil', this iteration will feature four heroes: a magician, a femme-fatale, a police officer, and a boxer – voiced by Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neil McDonough, and Ron Perlman, respectively. A character known as The Shadow Man – presumably the main villain – will be voiced by Robert Picardo.

Picardo offered some insight as to what role his character plays. "Shadow Man offers to help them, but his offer may not really help them," he said. "Everything I say is completely unreliable, including what I just said."

Gameplay consists of using gumball machines to unlock special abilities, taking advantage of unusual weapons – like a rocket-powered riot shield – and, of course, gunning down hordes of the undead. The inclusion of some bigger monsters hints that Shadows of Evil could feature mini-bosses. What do you think of these additions and changes?
