The day of reckoning has finally arrived as the newest Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Revelations Zombie trailer has been released,
In this article, we’re breaking down everything you may have missed including the new backstory reveals and gameplay secrets from the latest Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Revelations Zombies trailer!
Revelations Universe Bleeding
One of the biggest things you may notice about the new Revelations gameplay trailer is that there are multiple maps. No, you’re not mistaken, this trailer is still focused on Revelations. However, due to the storyline, the universes have started to bleed. As a result, we are introduced to a new universe, that of The House and The Children. Upon the arrival of the
This will allow players to not only be able to relive classic pieces of the Zombies
The Beacon In Revelations
The Beacon is something that we have not yet physically seen in any trailers or any piece of the storyline thus far. However, it has been something that has been hinted at for a long time, most notably in The Giant when Maxis mentions that he can see “when and where you are” after announcing that The Beacon has been lit.
Though we don’t know the exact implications, the clues themselves fall in line to fit accurately. The Beacon would be used as a way to set a point in time and space, and to create enough energy and aetherial matter that to bridge the gap between universes. It seems from the newest Revelations trailer that we will be able to directly interact with the housing of The Beacon below the structure itself.
Perk Locations In Revelations
From the newest Revelations trailer, we can gather together some input as to how we will be able to play the map itself. One of the most important parts when starting out on a Zombies map like Revelations for the first time is being able to find the crucial perks necessary in order to succeed in your endeavors. Though we cannot see all of the perks in the new trailer, for the first time in a long while, Treyarch and Call of Duty have clearly denoted where the two of the most important perks (in our opinion) are located — Juggernog and Speed Cola.
The first location comes at around the fifteen second time stamp as we get a close-up look at the phrase "knowledge itself is for the taking," teasing the playable areas of Nacht Der Untoten. Though it is not the main focal point of the shot, we can clearly see the tip of the Juggernog machine in Revelations above the fallen zombies off in the distance beyond the stairs.
Additionally, slightly past the thirty-second mark of the trailer we catch a glimpse of our characters trudging through the cell halls of Mob of the Dead amidst the iron bars for a cinematic flare. In that short sequence, we can see trailing off behind them is the location of Speed Cola. Though we won't know for certain until the map comes out where exactly these two sections are on the map, they are definitely a helpful dose of prior knowledge to have before first booting up Revelations!
New Weapons In Revelations
Though only a second long, there is evidence of new weapons making their way into the new Revelations Zombies map. This first occurs with Zetsubou No Shima and the inclusion of the HG-40, the Marshal-16, as well as others in subsequent Zombies maps. This is a way to keep the game up to speed and the weaponry fresh. It looks like again we will be having a weaponry update via the Mystery Box in Black Ops 3's new Revelations map.
While watching the trailer you can see for just a split second the back of Nikolai as he fires a weapon. That weapon produces a shot that is a blue orb, similar to a plasma charge. Weaponry that does this in the Call of Duty franchise includes the
Elemental Staves In Revelations
For a while now, we knew that we would have the Elemental Staves from Origins make a return appearance in Revelations. Although up until this point, we never had any visual confirmation. In the newest Black Ops 3 Revelations trailer, located amongst the stage and our characters as they fend off hordes of zombies, sits a large backdrop.
This backdrop showcases what may be our
Multiple New Zombie Types In Revelations
The first thing to note is that the zombie models will be vastly different and sourced all over the place. From this trailer, we can directly note that there are zombie models from Shadows of Evil, Shangri-La, Mob of the Dead, Origins, and perhaps more. This is relatively interesting as it ties to the bleeding effect of the universe, while still maintaining a semblance of normalcy as far as Call of Duty Zombies goes.
The thing that players should be intrigued by and perhaps worried by if you’re not a fan of boss zombies is that we see three boss zombies showcased in the new Revelations trailer. This clearly notes the return of the
However, the strangest of the bunch has to be the zombie that looks to be an evolved Nova-6 crawler from Kino Der Toten. With all three displayed in just over a minute’s time, there surely is room for even more surprises. As a result, Revelations could prove to be a tremendous burden for players that aren’t fond of dealing with the big, bad boss zombies.
Apothicons In Revelations
Unsurprisingly, familiar assets will be returning in Revelations from Shadows of Evil. We distinctly see the
The biggest of glitches was that the
Months later, fans received some closure in a community stream in which Jason Blundell was discussing Zombies with NoahJ456 and the question arose “can we upgrade the
