The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 panel has come to a close at San Diego Comic-Con, but Treyarch surprised fans with a one-two punch of Zombie killing goodness.
First up, it revealed a new trailer for the game, showcasing the third Zombie campaign. In Blood of the Dead, four of the classic heroes from the series -- Richtofen, Dempsey, Takeo and Nikola -- return, visiting a secret laboratory beneath Alcatraz Penitentiary. (Ooh, going back to Alcatraz for the first time since Mob of the Dead. Sweet!)
“Encountering a familiar enemy Hell-bent on imprisoning them for all eternity, the Primis crew quickly realize that the future predicted by the Kronorium - the future they sought to secure - is now in serious jeopardy,” the video description reads.
Blood of the Dead joins both IX and Voyage of Despair as the playable Zombies stories in the game and brings some familiarity to fans of the series. Plus, it looks really cool, with the four packing major weaponry when the undead starts popping out of Alcatraz’s cells. You can see all the action, in beautiful 60 frames per second, above.
But fans may find the second thing that Treyarch announced even more intriguing, as the developer revealed a new Mystery Box Edition that will release later this year. In it, you’ll find the following items:
- CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 4 GAME - Black Ops is back! Featuring gritty, grounded Multiplayer combat, the biggest Zombies offering ever with three full undead adventures at launch, and Blackout, where the universe of Black Ops comes to life in a massive battle royale experience.
