Call of Duty: Black Ops III continues to have post launch support with Activision and Treyarch announcing a new content expansion titled Zombies Chronicles for PlayStation 4, coming May 16.
Treyarch is calling the content a “love letter to the CoD community” and it contains remastered versions of eight Zombies maps from the Call of Duty Zombie Mode franchise including:
• 3 Call of Duty: World at War Maps: Nacht der Untoten, Verruckt, and Shi No Numa
• 4 Call of Duty: Black Ops Maps: Kino Der Toten, Ascension, Shangri-la, and Moon
• A Call of Duty: Black Ops II Map: Origins
Zombies Chronicles updates the maps for current-gen platforms and features upgrades to bring them up with current Zombies maps in Black Ops III.
From Activision’s official press release:
“The collection adds vibrant current-generation visuals, enhanced lighting, revamped character models and environments, and updated AI and audio systems. Zombies Chronicles also lets players use custom weapons, including current weaponry featured in Black Ops III that wasn’t featured in the original maps.”
Zombies Chronicles will be priced at $29.99 USD, £42.99 GBP, and $44.95 AUD, and will only be available digitally. Players will also receive the following when purchased:
- 20 Vials of Liquid Divinium
- 2 All-New Whimsical GobbleGums
- Exclusive Zombies Pack-A-Punch Weapon Camo
A Black Ops III Zombies Chronicles PS4 Dynamic Theme will also be offered as a pre-order incentive, featuring artwork by a renowned artist. To celebrate the launch of the pack, Treyarch and Activision will be kicking off the “8 Days of the Dead” celebration where Black Ops III players on all platforms and Zombies Chronicles owners on PS4 will receive double-XP rewards and can compete in exclusive community challenges.
There has been no word yet on when Zombies Chronicles will come to other platforms, but Call of Duty maps currently have one-month exclusive access on PlayStation 4, so expect the other platforms to receive the content sometime in June.
Treyarch has also released screenshots of each of the maps and a trailer, all of which you can check out below.
