Black Ops 3 Descent DLC: Gorod Krovi Translation

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3's Descent DLC has another mysterious sounding name for their Zombies map, Gorod Krovi.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has a history of difficult to pronounce, and hard to understand, map names for an english speaking audience, and the new Descent DLC is no different with the Gorod Krovi map. First we had Der Eisendrache, which roughly translated to "The Iron Dragon," and Zetsubou No Shima was "The Island of Dispair." 

Treyarch uses uncommon dialects for their map names, leading to initial confusion. For example, have a look at the reddit thread where users were wondering why Treyarch would name their map "The Iron Kite/Hang glider." Fourtunately, the riddle was solved eventually. So what does this all mean for Gorod Krovi? Typing it into Google Translate will do you know favors, since you would need to know the Russian alphabet in order to translate properly.

Thanks to a friend who claims to speak Russian, we have been able to translate Gorod Krovi to the "City of Blood." We didn't take his word for it however, and quickly typed "City of Blood" to translate to Russian.

Turns out, City translates into a word that is pronounced Gorod!

And blood is translated to a word that is pronounced krov'.

There you have it Gorod Krovi means City of Blood. This is obviously exciting when you consider how Zetsubou No Shima's main Easter Egg ended with the characters holding blood vials! Will we finally get to see what this all means? There are new weapons spotted in the Gorod Krovi trailer, start speculating now! Weapons were not the only thing spotted, this is Everything You Might Have Missed in the Gorod Krovi Trailer.
