    What We Know About Operation Apocalypse Z

    Treyarch has revealed the name of the next Operation coming July 9th, 2019 on PS4: Operation Apocalypse Z

     

    Operation Apocalypse Z will be a Zombies-themed operation with new content coming to Zombies, Blackout, and Multiplayer. This includes the release of the new Zombies experience Alpha Omega, the second-to-last installment in the Aether Storyline. Let's break down what we know so far about what is coming to each respective mode.

     

    Zombies

     

    - This Operation will see the release of Alpha Omega, a new spin on the classic Nuketown map and the penultimate map in the Aether Storyline. Yesterday Treyarch released a mosaic poster for Alpha Omega; Pictured on the poster are Primis, Ultimis, as well as a zombie face in the center of a mushroom cloud. It is unknown which of the two groups will be playable, or if even both will be.

    Treyarch also released the Aether Returns video for Alpha Omega, which may potentially be the intro cutscene. It depicts many key moments in the Aether Storyline with a narration by Nikolai hinting at what is to come.

     

     

     Treyarch also tweeted blueprints for a new weapon meant to be appearing in Alpha Omega. It seems to be a new version of the Ray Gun Mk II, originally from Black Ops 2, with four different elemental modes to be used.

    - Due to leaks by Joshwoocool on Twitter, we also know a new perk is coming to Zombies called Bloodwolf Bite. It is unknown what effects it will have.

     

    - On Monday at 11AM PT, Treyarch will be hosting a livestream to reveal some of the new content coming in this Operation, including a gameplay reveal of Alpha Omega, and there is mention of a very special guest coming. This guest (or guests) may be members of Avenged Sevenfold, and we may be seeing a new song released with the map, or in a future map. 

     

    Blackout

     

    - The Blackout map will be receiving an update, most likely with the addition of a classic zombies map drop location.

     

    - Alcatraz will return, as well as a "dark new twist" coming to Alcatraz during the Operation

     

    - Splitscreen co-op will return as well on July 9th. This feature was removed recently for unknown reasons.

     

    - We can also gather from the initial teaser gif from Treyarch's Twitter that Russman will be arriving as a playable character sometime in the operation. From voice lines in the files for Misty, we can gather the rest of Victis should be arriving at some point as well. We also see two characters riding a motorcycle with a sidecar which will most likely appear in the Blackout map update.

     

    Multiplayer

     

    - The new Operation will see the release of new maps with the Black Ops Pass, and there will be walkthroughs coming on the Monday livestream. it is speculated that there will be two, and both will be themed after Zombies. This is based on two tweets from Treyarch with mysterious gifs from two unknown locations that contain Zombies assets. Treyarch has similarly hinted at Multiplayer maps in this manner in the past.

     

    The first gif has coordinates which point to Austria, meaning this map may be themed similarly to Der Eisendrache, though they are not exactly at its real-world location. The second shows both assets from the Aether and Chaos storylines, and with the description "Exit through the gift shop", we can gather the map may be some sort of Zombies-themed museum.

     

     

     

    - The livestream will also feature gameplay for a brand new mode.

     

    Data-mined Leaks have also been revealed *Spoilers*

    Spoiler

    - Data-mined leaks have also revealed three new ranged weapons will be added in the operation, and two new melee weapons. The ranged weapons are the M16 from Black Ops, the Argus Shotgun from Black Ops 3, and a crossbow called the Reaver C86. The two melee weapons are the Full Stop (a Stop Sign) and the Backhander (a Zombie arm).

    • To celebrate the launch of the Mass Effect Legendary Edition, a large portion of the original trilogy cast reunited for a special panel including both voices for Commander Shepard, Joker's Seth Green, and so many more. When Mark Meer, the voice behind Male Shepard, put out a call to fans to edit the Citadel DLC in Mass Effect 3 to have both Sheps battle it out, one fan took to the challenge in a pretty epic way. Just be warned, the video has spoilers for one of the greatest DLCs in gaming history, so if you haven't played it yet, you might want to turn away now.  Seriously, last chance. Spoilers for the Mass Effect 3 Citadel DLC ahead.  Spoiler warning given. Fandom mode activated. Let's do this. In the Mass Effect 3 Citadel DLC, there are a few parts. An entirely new area of the Citadel is open, filled with bars, casinos, arcades, and a swanky sushi joint. It all goes to hell, as things often do with Shepard, when a band of mercs attack them when they meet up with Joker at the fanciest restaurant on the Citadel. The plot thickens when it is found that the true enemy is ... well, Shepard. Turns out, Cerberus built a backup clone in case Shep needed any "spare parts," and that clone has some issues with being second best. Before the best party ever to hit space arrives, Shepard and their crew must fight to take the Normandy back and prove that the galaxy is only big enough for one of them. On fan, YouTuber RangerDelk, took Meer up on his challenge and edited the DLC in a way that MaleShep and FemShep square off, giving us the crossover that has only been available via mods and less than SFW fan fiction. The result? Pure epicness:  Click here to watch embedded media This from the original trilogy, not the remaster, but is really awesome to see the pair battle it out. It turns out that this user created a video previously where FemShep was the clone, but  Meer requested another version where he was the backup organ donor instead, giving Jennifer Hale's take on the character time to shine.  The Mass Effect Legendary Edition is out now and has been met with pretty stellar reviews, including our own right here. For the those wanting a little more remaster goodness in their life, be sure to check out our Exclusives hub below to see more from our time chatting with BioWare to dive deep into what the Legendary Edition has to offer. You can check that out here in between missions that ... you know, save the galaxy? No pressure.  View the full article
    • Mass Effect 3 had no shortage of romantic partners that you could count, and after a brief fling on the Normandy, your Shepard would have a reminder of their one true love in the form of an artistic framed picture in their sleeping quarters. For fans of the character Tali, this picture was an extra special memento as it showed the Quarian without her trademark mask on. In Mass Effect Legendary Edition, that picture is still there but Tali's face from the 2012 game has been swapped out for an image that's more in line with her character and race. Possible spoilers below The original...and not the best.The new image features Tali's face now only partially uncovered, and her skin tone has lost the purple hue of the original photo for a more greyish tone. Here's the new picture, from "Maxgoods" on Reddit: Lookin' less stock photo!Back in 2012. Tali's original unmasked appearance resulted in a small controversy. Developer BioWare had used a stock image by photographer Matthew Leete, which was then modified to appear more alien. Some fans at the time pointed out inconsistencies in the image and Tali, such as several of the model's fingers clearly having been photoshopped off, and the small fact that without her protective suit Tali should have been dead within minutes after the glamorous portrait shot was taken. For newcomers to Mass Effect, Quarians have to live their entire lives while dressed in a protective enviro-suit as their weak immune systems cannot handle germs and microbes outside of sterile environments. If you're looking to earn this new photo of Tali, you'll need to play through both of her character arcs in Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3 to successfully romance her. Unfortunately, only male Shepard can date her. Mass Effect Legendary Edition is currently doing very well since its release last week, having reached a concurrent player figure on Valve's PC storefront that has broken new franchise records. This won't be the last that fans see of Mass Effect either, as BioWare is also working on a new game in the series which still in an early stage of development.
