Nightmares campaign & Zombies Storyline : CODZombies
I have played nearly every Call of Duty campaign since Finest Hour in I've endured the trenches of World War II in gritty missions with. Treyarch is absolutely bursting with pride that at long last, you can play as a woman during a Call of Duty campaign in Black Ops 3. While there. Nightmares is a mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The mode serves as an alternate version to the Campaign, introducing zombies as the main enemies for the.
BUT, that wouldn't make sense because zombie outbreaks occurred when the characters blew up the Earth in Black Ops 1, which led to the events of Black Ops 2, which led to Origins, which reversed the events of Black Ops 2? What I'm thinking here is that Nightmares is also a separate universe of a zombie outbreak. However, the idea of Treyarch creating that narrative OR the coincidence of these events lining up are two different stories.
Both involve Element and zombies, therefore there's a likelihood that Nightmares is a separate universe. Now, I have a few more allusions between Nightmares and zombies that may tickle some fancies. In Nightmares, virus is unleashed upon humanity creating hordes of undead, ravaging the earth. Also, Deimos and Dolos are brother and sister, respectively.
The Games Cabin
With the soldiers in their possession, both strive to control humanity as their own personal army through the actions of these soldiers, our main characters. However, Deimos and Dolos oppose each other, and thus have different goals. This is just like Richtofen and Maxis' rivalry leading up to Buried. Both rival each other in battles of controlling the undead in order to fulfill their own desires.
Deimos wants human control because he needs a human army to defeat his sister the reason being that he believes humans are weak and are nothing more than a pawn of his own manipulation. Dolos figures out her brothers intentions and patiently waits and follows the Player until she may strike through the Player's actions.
Throughout the game, the only dialogue there is is Dr. Salim and the Player. Salim is asking you questions and guiding you through your past. Salim is revealed to be Deimos and evidently he is not able to fully control you into sacrificing yourself to his will. This is because Dolos is protecting you through the possession of the character, Kane, your "guardian angel. After Deimos finds out that Dolos has been meddling with his plans, he says to her "what will you do next, sister?Call of Duty Black Ops 3: Nightmare Final Mission + Ending(PS4/1080p/No Commentary)
Infecting Taylor and his team, Corvus made them obsessed with finding the forest, with the Player and Hendricks also becoming infected after interfacing with Hall and Diaz. After killing Maretti, the pair track down Taylor in Cairo.
Kane attempts to contain it, but Corvus locks her in the compound room, leaking the gas to kill her in front of a helpless Player.
Continuing on, the Player finds Hendricks holding Krueger hostage. After Hendricks kills Krueger, the Player kills him in turn. The Player then tries to kill themselves to end Corvus' infection, but ends up in a simulated frozen forest, created by Corvus to retain the consciousness of dead DNI users.
Taylor, still alive after becoming a glitch in the forest, reunites with the Player, stating that they must purge their DNI to end Corvus. Taylor's mission reports reveal that the Player actually died during their cybernetics surgery due to complications. The resulting events until Taylor's death occur in a simulation deviating from Taylor and Hendricks's experience of hunting down Dylan Stone and his team Javier Ramirez, Alice Conrad, and Joseph Fierrotheir teammates who defected after finding the CIA black site.
The Player's consciousness is shown living in Taylor's mind throughout the simulation, indicating that the Player manages to take over Taylor's body after his simulated death until the DNI purge sees Corvus erased and Taylor regains control.
Nightmares[ edit ] The Player wakes up only to be told by Dr. Salim that they are dead, and that the Player must recount their memories. The Player tells Dr. Salim that they are a Deadkiller who was sent to investigate the disappearance of Taylor's Deadkiller team. However, upon investigating, the Player and Hendricks discover that Taylor's team has used their DNI connections to disable the Quarantine Zone defenses all over the world.
Teaming up with Rachel Kane, the Player and Hendricks chase Taylor's team all from Singapore to Egypt, eventually being forced to kill the entire team. However, Hendricks is infected by the same virus that turned Taylor and his team mad, and heads for Zurich. The Player discovers that Dr. Salim is in fact Deimos, the demigod responsible for unleashing the undead plague on humanity.
Deimos had entered the Player's mind when they interfaced with Hall, and attempts to manipulate them into opening a portal to his home dimension, Malus. The Player is then contacted by another demigod, Dolos, who is sympathetic to humanity and seeks to kill Deimos, her brother.
Dolos transports both the Player and Deimos to Malus, where Deimos is vulnerable. Dolos then explains to the Player that her true plans are to kill every other demigod and supernatural being that can challenge her, and the Player agrees to help her.
Multiplayer[ edit ] The Multiplayer mode of Black Ops III features a shared narrative setting with the campaign, in which players battle in virtual simulations across a variety of battlefields, while wielding the avatars of nine elite soldiers, referred to collectively as "Specialists": Through progression of each Specialist, players can unlock audio logs that provide backstories of each of the soldier.
Full progression of all Specialists unlocks a final audio log, in which an unknown informant reports to his superior about keeping tabs on "eight other soldiers", implying that one of the Specialists, heavily hinted to be Prophet, is not a simulated avatar, but the real person injecting themselves into the simulation to monitor the other eight.
Zombies[ edit ] Settings and characters[ edit ] Like in previous games, the Zombies storyline in Call of Duty: Black Ops III is told in an episodic format, with one map, "Shadows of Evil", available at launch, and the rest to follow in the downloadable content season.
Treyarch describes the new characters as "troubled individuals" with "a long and sordid history of past misdeeds".

July Learn how and when to remove this template message Following the battle against the undead outbreak in Northern France of Dimension 63Doctor Ludvig Maxis, whose brain resided in a mechanical drone at the time, arrives at Agartha and is given a new body by Doctor Monty, a self-proclaimed omnipotent being and member of the Order of the Keepers.
After helping to cleanse the soul of his daughter Samantha from the original timeline, Monty instructs Maxis to retrieve an artifact called the Summoning Key, a powerful artifact that can fix their world back to its original state. To do so, Maxis instructs his friend Doctor Edward Richtofen to retrieve the Kronorium, an ancient book detailing the events of every universe and dimension, which contains the location of the Key.
After learning of the Key's location, Richtofen travels to Dimension 63 and arrives in Morg City inwhere the Apothicons, former Keepers who were corrupted and mutated by the dark energy of the Aethermanipulated four individuals: Jessica Rose, a burlesque dancer; Jack Vincent, a corrupt cop; Floyd Campbell, an up-and-coming boxer; and Nero Blackstone, a washed-up magician. Misled into doing the bidding of an Apothicon named the Shadowman, the four opened a rift beneath the city using the Summoning Key, thereby freeing an ancient Apothicon beast.
With the Keepers' aid, the four manage to trap the Shadowman inside the Key, and banish the beast from their dimension. Before they could retrieve the Summoning Key from the Keepers, however, Richtofen snags the Key from them, thanks them for their effort and exits through a portal, leaving the four and the rest of Dimension 63 to be doomed by the Apothicons.
Richtofen travels to Dimension and collects the soul of his alternate self, then releases the soul to Agartha, where Monty gives the soul a child's body, and calls him Eddie. The Dimension 63 versions of "Tank" Dempsey, Nikolai Belinski, and Takeo Masaki pursue Richtofen in his interdimensional journeyand arrive in the Der Riese facility in the original timeline, only moments after Maxis and Samantha were teleported away by the original Richtofen.
The three attempt to convince him to awaken their original selves, but are interrupted by the Dimension 63 Richtofen, who appears out of the teleporter and kills his counterpart, triggering various timeline fractures. The four then band together to fend off the zombie horde once more; eventually, they activates a beacon within the facility, allowing Maxis to locate them from Agartha.
In pursuit of the original Dempsey, the four then travel to Der Eisendrache, Group 's fortress in Austria.

Despite Group member Doctor Groph's attempt at preventing the group from retrieving the test subject, he ultimately fails and perishes when Richtofen overrides the castle's defense system and sends a barrage of missiles towards the moon.
As the four retrieve the original Dempsey, Richtofen reveals his plan to prevent their original incarnations from wreaking havoc upon the universe.
Dimension 63 Dempsey then volunteers to kill his own counterpart before allowing Richtofen to absorb his soul with the Key. Afterwards, the group attempts to teleport to a new fractured timeline to locate the original Takeo, who is held prisoner at a Pacific island by the Japanese research group Division 9.
They discover that Division 9 had been experimenting with plant life mutation using Elementwith the original Takeo also a victim of the experimentation.
After they manage to release him from the mutation, Dimension 63 Takeo is shocked to learn that the Emperor of Japan betrayed his original self and sent him to this island out of petty jealousy. The original Takeo proceeds to commit seppukuwith his Dimension 63 self decapitating him. After absorbing the original Takeo's soul with the Key, Richtofen takes the crew to Alcatraz in Dimension 63, where they retrieve several blood vials, the purpose of which he refuses to explain at the time.
The crew then teleports to another fractured timeline and lands in a war-torn Stalingrad inwhere the Soviet Union has stolen Group 's technology to create their own giant robots and mechanical soldiers, while Germany is aided by ancient dragons resurrected and bred by Division 9. As the crew traverses across the city, they are forced to help Sophia, Maxis' former assistant who has been transformed into a machine, to initiate the Ascension Protocol, allowing her to gain knowledge of interdimensional travel.
Monty also introduces himself to the crew, as he informs them of the state of the multiverse. Amidst the chaos, the original Nikolai, who has taken control of a modified drone unit, teams up with the group to destroy the alpha dragon. However, upon the dragon's death, Nikolai refuses to surrender, forcing the four to take out his drone. The original Nikolai is angered by his Dimension 63 self as he mentions their deceased wife, and attempts to shoot him, only to be killed in retaliation.
With all souls collected, Richtofen calls out to Maxis to summon a portal, and release the souls into it. The group returns to Agartha and arrives in "The House", a place built by Monty to prevent all forces of evil from infecting it, ensuring the safety of the children Samantha and cleansed versions of the original souls in child form. After sealing off the House from the rest of the multiverse, Maxis is manipulated by the voice of the Shadowman into releasing him upon contact with the Summoning Key.
The Shadowman then uses his power to merge various other dimensions, including the Dark Aether, allowing the Apothicons to enter and wreak havoc. Richtofen and the crew manage to help Sophia enter the dimension, and with her assistance, retrieve the Summoning Key and the Kronorium. They then confront the Shadowman together, and defeat him once and for all using the combined power of the two artifacts.
Maxis, who still resides within the Key, then absorbs the souls of the children into the Key, and joins Sophia as they fly toward the Apothicon sun, banishing all Apothicon presences from Agartha. Richtofen and the crew are able to remain in the dimension without fading from existence, thanks to the blood vials they retrieved earlier.
Monty, worried about the four becoming a paradox in his perfect world, contemplates between erasing their existence and sending them to a distant corner of the universe.
In a moment, the four begin to fade away, then reappear in ancient medieval times, where they would be remembered as "Primis", heroes who aided the Keepers in sealing away the Apothicons in the Great War, effectively "completing the cycle" of the universe. Development[ edit ] Call of Duty: The game was the second to benefit under publisher Activision 's three-year development cycle, the first being Call of Duty: The cycle allows each of the development teams of the Call of Duty series Infinity WardTreyarchand Sledgehammer Games to develop games in a three-year timespan, as opposed to the two allowed previously.
These versions lack some features available on other platforms, such as the game's campaign mode. This ends a similar exclusivity deal with Microsoft dating back to Call of Duty 4:
