A new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies trailer has just hit Youtube, finally shedding some light on its story and character connections. Both IX and Voyage of Despair are being shown in it, with the last chapter of the mode being the most cryptic one for the time being.
The trailer, as well as the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies mode, follows Scarlett Rhodes, a young woman in her quest of finding her father who mysteriously disappeared 15 years ago. As the trailer suggests, her father is being kept away and both her and three other characters are sent out to find him.
All three other characters owe Scarlett’s father a “great debt” and that’s where Voyage of Despair starts. As we mentioned before, when the first trailers for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies were released, the story revolves around a mysterious ancient artifact that, when assembled, turns everyone out of its radius to a nasty zombie.
What’s weird though is that somewhere in the middle of the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies trailer, the artifact is being assembled and the characters are mysteriously teleported to the setting of IX, which takes place in a gladiatorial arena.
That’s mainly the reason why all characters during that scene are yielding heavy modern weapons while fighting against ancient gladiators, zombies, and an undead tiger? The new Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Zombies trailer has filled us with questions as to how this story will fit together in the game.
How does the third chapter, Blood of the Dead, connects to this story? What’s with the cave where all characters inhale some kind of fume and then get transferred to IX? Treyarch holds all the answers to those questions but we’ll never know for sure until the game releases.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12. This will be the game’s substitute for a classic single-player campaign, so make sure to “inhale” it all and have a great time playing it. More content for this mode, including new maps, will be coming through the game’s Season Pass at a later date.
