multiplayer history and we can’t wait to build upon that heritage in Black
Ops III,” said Mark Lamia, Studio Head of Treyarch. “We carefully
adapted the design of the map to make sure that it fit with our new
movement system, but to also make sure that we retained the spirit and
the fun that made fans fall in love with it in the first place.”
The popular map debuted in the original Call of Duty®: Black Ops,
and returned in Call of Duty®: Black Ops II as Nuketown

generation of play styles to best fit the new movement system.

battle. In a world more divided than ever, this elite squad consists of
men and women who have enhanced their combat capabilities to fight
faster, stronger, and smarter.
No Black Ops title would be complete without its signature Zombies,
rounding out the offering. Call of Duty: Black Ops III
delivers “Shadows of Evil,” a 1940’s film-noir-inspired adventure that
is a completely unique, immersive and ambitious Zombies experience to
date, complete with a new XP progression for players, adding
