Black Ops 3 Getting Zombies Map Remasters

In a bit of a surprise move, Treyarch has announced some new content for Black Ops 3, specifically for the zombies mode.

It has been announced that new content under the name Zombies Chronicles will be making its way to Black Ops 3 in the near future. The new content will feature remastered versions of eight different zombies maps from previous COD zombies games.

The eight maps include the following - Nacht der Untoten, Kino der Toten, Shangri-la, Shi no Numa, Moon, Ascension, Verruckt and Origins.

Jason Blundell, studio head for Treyarch, has spread his word on the importance of these eight maps. He feels strongly that these eight maps are "the foundation for Zombies," and that he felt like "It was more important to give people the beginnings."

Call of Duty Black Ops 3: Zombie Chronicles will launch on May 16 - so far this launch will be exclusive to PlayStation 4. A later launch for Xbox One should follow, although the Xbox One launch date hasn't been announced yet. Interestingly, the price tag for the new Zombies Chronicles maps hasn't been announced either. We would expect it will go on sale for a similar price to previous DLC packs from Treyarch, however.

If we take a look at previous timed Call of Duty exclusivities, we can safely guess that the Xbox One launch should be roughly one month after the PS4 launch, so we'd say June 16 could be a good estimate.
