Treyarch’s famous zombies mode is a staple in every installment of the Black Ops series for Call of Duty. In fact, many gamers buy Black Ops titles solely to play through the undead adventures. These modes have great story lines, lovable characters, great gameplay that requires a proper strategy, and more. In a sense, it’s almost like getting a second complete game free.

This holds true for Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 as well. The initial zombies portion of the game, Shadows of Evil, features a large, well-designed map, and an intriguing story set in the 1940s that follows a group of characters (Nero, Jessica, Vincent, and Floyd) as they face off against the undead horrors that await them in Morg City.
