Chaos

 

With the little bits of info we have on the new story being told in Black Ops 4, coupled with the fact that I'm stuck at work and really cannot be bothered to do what I should be doing, I thought I would throw together all the information we have to date so that we have it all in one place.

 

There is every chance some of the information below is wrong, or key information is missing. If you spot anything let know and I will update the post accordingly.

 

Story Premise

Spoiler

Our crew are investigating the disappearance of the eccentric adventurer Alistair Rhodes, who vanished 15 years ago on the trail of the Occult.

 

During their search the crew come into contact with a mysterious relic which has the ability to transform living beings into the undead when combined with another smaller artefact. They also encounter a staff (which appears Egyptian in origin) that has the capability to transport people through time and space.

 

This story is steeped in Alchemy and Magic.

 

Characters

Spoiler

 

 

Scarlett PromotionalArt Zombies BO4     Scarlett Rhodes

 

Scarlett appears to be the main protagonist in the Chaos story. She is a rational woman but also a bit of a rogue and she is investigating the mysterious disappearance of her father, Alistair Rhodes, despite harbouring resentment for him. 

 

Diego PromotionalArt Zombies BO4     Diego Necalli

 

Diego is a spy and a ruthless cutthroat. This master of seduction is very observant and aware of his surroundings. Diego's connection to Alistair is currently unclear.

 

Bruno PromotionalArt Zombies BO4      Bruno Delacroix

 

Bruno is a violent man with a savage reputation, who has tried to turn his life around. He has joined the search as Alistair was the only one to offer him a chance at redemption.

 

Shaw PromotionalArt Zombies BO4      Stanton Shaw

 

Shaw is a master chemist who will happily experiment by taking all manner of concoctions, as such his grasp on reality is loose as best. Shaw is an old friend of Alistair's. A peculiar item of note with Shaw is that his eyes are different colours, one Blue and one Green.

Alistair is an eccentric adventurer who disappeared 15 years ago whilst on the trail of the Occult. His work is steeped in Myths and Legends. Alistair has some sort of connection to all four of our characters who are investigating his disappearance.

We don't know who these gentlemen are, but they both seem very aware of the relics and artefacts in our story and what these artefacts are capable of.

 

 

Perk Altars

Spoiler

In the Chaos story we are being introduced to Perk Altars which are said to release vapours granting abilities similar to the perks from the Aether storyline.

 

The Altars appear to be modelled around ancient gods, and to date we have seen four. These are Zeus, Odin, Ra, and Danu.

 

Relics and Artefacts

Spoiler

This disc is the relic that can transform the living into the undead, producing a protective dome around the wielder and those close enough to it.

This smaller artefact appears to be required to activate the relic above. It is in the possession of Scarlett when they arrive on the Titanic in the trailer. Perhaps this is a keepsake from her father and she is unaware of its relevance.

This staff has the ability to transport people through time and space.

 

Special Weapons

Spoiler

There are four special weapons prevalent within the Chaos story. Whilst each weapon appears to be associated with a specific character this does not seem to be the case. In one of the trailers we see Scarlett brandishing the Viper and Dragon, whilst it is Bruno depicted with this weapon below.

Locations

Spoiler

Moving away from the war-torn locations prevalent throughout the Aether Story, Chaos appears to be set in very different surroundings.

Voyage or Despair - Set on board the RMS Titanic during its maiden voyage in 1912

 

Image result for IX zombies

IX - Set within the confines of a Roman Colosseum in what could be presumed to be 9 A.D.

 

Zombies

Spoiler

Moving away from the Aether premise that zombies are the result of exposure to the element 115, the undead in the Chaos story appear to be the result of a mystical force brought on by the use of ancient relics and artefacts.

 

Whilst similar in appearance to the Aether zombies, these zombies appear to be able to mutate in ways not seen before.

Also lets not forget we have Zombie Tigers now

Nice thread. Maybe link the trailer as well?

 

Where did you get all this info from?

 

Sadly I can't give you some brains/likes... but I guess I could pin the topic.

 

I already said it a bunch of times, but I am glad Treyarch seems to focus on something new. (In regards to story and gameplay.)

Thanks, I'll update and add the trailers too.

 

The info is from all over the place: Activision Website; Wiki's; an interview a read with JB on a Playstation Website; a few other places; and my own interpretation of what I saw in the trailers.

 

I'm mixed on the new story to be honest, having only recently got into BO3 I'm still elbow deep in Aether. It definitely looks interesting though.

 

Ah... Brains.    I miss Brains.

Also, thanks for the pin.

 

Not sure its pin worthy, but thanks nonetheless.

Brains are still there. Thing is there seem to be some problems with actually awarding them. Some Posts/users I can't give any brains/likes.

 

This topic is a nice summary so I reckon it deserves the pin and I mean when a highest round topic can be pinned this one surely can as well.

 

I am curious to see if this new story will properly be linked to the old one (not just in regards to the new perk system) in some shape, but if I had to take a guess the communitie's cry out will be loud enough it surely will happen. So I'd be surprised if the BotD and classified maps will be the only ones. Maybe we will even get more than 4 maps next year which could help in telling the story.

I'd be surprised if it is the end of Aether too, cannot see them combining the two stories though. The fundamentals of each (Aether and Chaos) are so different even down to the origins of the zombies themselves. This is 3arc though so anything is possible.

There's 4 already announced so there has to be more right. Unless the DLC they release through the year contains no zombie content then its a safe bet there will be. Can you imagine the outcry from the zombie community if they buy the Black Ops Pass (Ugh... I threw up a little just typing those words) only to later find out there will be no zombie related DLC.

Me either but @Wooodd you succeed in hyping me up for the upcoming game. This new story will be an entirely new start for this community. If I could give it: Brains to you!

Thanks @anonymous

 

I'm surprised there isn't more hype around Chaos TBH, as much as I love the Aether story-line it will be nice to get a fresh story from 3arc. Particularly if they put the same level if intrigue and intricacy into this one as with Aether.

Yes so much yes. 

 

They could make it as fun and mysterious as the original story back in waw/BO1. I wasn't much of a theorist back in those days either, but I whole heartly enjoyed catching up on the story line back then and I wish for it to be like that again.

Me too.

 

The beginning of BO2's cycle is when I got into Zombies and I had a lot of catching up to do. Would be nice to be on the ground floor this time around.

From what I gather, Blundell and the team are getting back to the roots of zombies.  More focus on round survival and with the new storyline, they have a clean slate to start with without trying to tie in old maps to the story.  I am stoked to see what they have in store for us.

So one thing I thought about these last couple of weeks. (Not constantly or anything, but whenever I turned on BO III. ^^) Is the fact that we have not seen any gum Machines in the trailers.

 

Is there any word on the gums being back?

In my thread about Perks, I noticed that some of the gobblegum ideas have been carried over.  Remember, we are not in the Monty timeline anymore.  Maybe it is just what Blundell was eluding to.  Back to the basics of zombies.  Lets make it a challenge again.  WWII was far to easy.  I beat the EE's far quicker than any other game.

Which begs two questions: What about Newtons Cookbook (cause that seems like another loose end) and how will they try to pull aditional money out of the zombies mode. Or maybe they won't do microtransactions in zombies this time around? Yeah right...
