Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies Releases Chaos Story Trailer | Gaming
About a couple of months ago, Activision and Treyarch held a live press conference to officially reveal that the forthcoming first-person shooter Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 would contain 3 different Zombies experiences at launch. Now, the studio has decided to offer up a closer look at two of those modes – that is, Voyage of Despair and IX – by releasing a brand new trailer that details how their stories are connected.
As seen below in the Chaos Story Trailer for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s Zombies, potential players are introduced to Scarlett Rhodes, who has become determined to solve the reasons behind her worldly and eccentric father’s mysterious disappearance. Instead of going it alone, though, she will be accompanied by three others with likes of Diego, Bruno, and Shaw joining her to fight what seems to be innumerable waves of the undead and uncover a prized relic that contains “an extraordinary power that threatens all of humanity.”
Throughout the course of the adventure, Scarlett and her cohorts manage to inadvertently time travel. To be specific, the group is initially squaring off against the undead on the Titanic in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s Voyage of Despair, only to then end up in what is IX’s presumed setting of ninth century Rome. While the former appears to contain its fair share of thrills, chills, and spills, what’s shown off of IX will likely be more appealing to Black Ops 4 fans, as there’s not only a bloodthirsty zombie Bengal tiger to fight, but also the trailer confirms firearms will be accessible even though it’s set in the distant past.
Taking all of this into consideration, it will be interesting to see if Activision and Treyarch’s plan to focus more so on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4‘s multiplayer and Zombies instead of including a more traditional story campaign will pay off in the long run. Of course, we will simply have to wait and see how first-person shooter aficionados respond and how the game itself fares in sales once the sequel comes out later this year.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 is set to launch on October 12, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
