Stormblade's 5 most anticipated games - No. 4

By Stormblade - Posted on 02 October 2015

No. 4 - Call of Duty: Black Ops III

There is only one reason Call of Duty: Black Ops III is on this list. It's been a long time since I have been a fan of multiplayer in the Call of Duty franchise, so that is certainly not the reason I am anticipating this game. I am also not particularly interested in the single player mission, although I will probably play it through.

No, there is only one word to describe why I am anticipating this game and why it ends up number 4 on my list. That word is: Zombies. Treyarch's take on zombie multiplayer has no equal. Ever since it first appeared in Call of Duty: World at War, the zombie maps have been the reason that I have remained loyal to the Call of Duty franchise.

This will be Treyarch's first attempt at zombie mode on the Xbox One and it's exciting. Bringing in new maps with new characters as well as reintroducing old maps with our favourite Nazi Zombie hunting quartet, elevates this title from a resounding ‘Meh’ to an eagerly anticipated game in my eyes.

Shadows of Evil

Are there other modes in Black Ops III?Are there other modes in Black Ops III?

The first zombie map has a look and feel of some of the maps in Black Ops and Black Ops II, namely Mob of the Dead and Buried. There will be objectives and complexities that I have been slowly learning to appreciate. I am hopeful the sheer joy of zombie killing won’t be compromised by tasks and challenges, as it was to some extent in Origins.

By pre-ordering the game, we’ll be receiving a revamp of our favourite zombie map, Der Riese. I am really excited and a little nervous about this. If they manage it much like they did with the Black Ops version, it should be awesome. Can’t wait to defend The Catwalk of Hope and Love™ on the Xbox One.
