Get ready for another bloody tussle with the undead, because Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles launches on PS4 today. There had been rumors floating the still-active Black Ops III would be getting additional Zombies DLC, and earlier this month Activision and developer Treyarch made it official.
"For the first time, experience the epic stories of the undead saga that started it all for Activision's Call of Duty, together in one package! Call of Duty: Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles includes eight of the most beloved Zombies maps from previous Treyarch-developed Call of Duty games, including World at War, Black Ops and Black Ops II. The maps have been completely remastered from the ground-up, delivering many of the classic, thrilling Zombies origins storylines with stunning visuals, enhanced audio and new gameplay, all updated for today's generation of consoles."
Zombies Chronicles launches on PlayStation 4 on May 16, while PC and Xbox One players will have to wait until June 16. The DLC pack will cost $30, which is fairly steep, but in line with what Activision typically charges for DLC (it's usually $15 for four maps). Activision is celebrating the launch of Zombies Chronicles with a special event:
"To celebrate launch day on May 16th, Activision and Treyarch will kick off the '8 Days of the Undead,' during which players of Black Ops III on all platforms and players of Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles on PS4 will be able to earn double XP rewards, engage in community challenges and receive a host of free exclusive content including a Zombies calling card, weapon camo, new Gobble Gums and a PS4 theme."
