Treyarch’s Jason Blundell, speaking to the Official Xbox Magazine, has revealed that the Shadows of Evil zombies map has its own tram transit system within it for players to move around the map. In addition, there’s also canals and scaffolding.

“It’s the biggest Zombies map we’ve ever done,” Jason Blundell said in the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine. “It’s large in terms of complexity, but also in verticality – there are so many ways to move around the city. Canals, scaffolding… there’s even a tram transit system.

Blundell, in the latest BO3Fridays stream, also revealed that the map has more verticality and more easter eggs than ever before.

    Transit 2.0? Hope it is improved


    but what about having to hold square on random walls and floors to build weapons that are required for high rounds? that’s what i buy the game for, of course

  • Bo3 fan


  • Edro

    I’m actually so excited for this map.

  • SamCoates812

    i wonder what the map layout is

  • Joshwoocool

    if soe is like tranzit id be happy

    • wtf

    • Ak74u

      Wtf how old are you 8 ?

      • Joshwoocool

        because having a different opinion makes you a 8 year old?

  • ToonToons22

    I already knew that there was going to be a train in Shadows of Evil. It was in the leaked achievements list. Still can’t wait for BO3 to come out; I’ll be playing Zombies first.

  • Ryumoau

    Nice, I’m glad theres more than one way to move around. I’m curious to see how the huge setting is handled. Will it be a huge open city we can freely explore or will there be large sections that will be inaccessible.

  • Drasadex

    So I wonder, can we swim in these canals?

    • Jay Evan

      That would actually be pretty cool.

      • Drasadex


        Imagine the zombies swimming right behind you lol

        • RdJokr

          The day when zombies can swim, is the day that we know we are incredibly fucked.

          • k5berry

            No the day you described is when we find out they’ve learned to pilot helicopters lol.

          • ItzSikh

            now we would be incredibly fucked if that happens

    • A

      they better have that!

    • burrgee

      My guess its canal boats but i do hope we can swim in it that would be awesome.

      • Ak74u

        Canal boats would be cool and maybe there can be motor bikes we can use that would be cool to travel the map faster.

      • Drasadex

        boats might be alright.

      • But can the zombies swim? If not I doubt you can

    • Viral Echo

      We need this!!!!!

    • matt murdock

      i would ejaculate if it were a little row boat

    • Kyle Soule

      I hope so. That would be pretty cool.

  • Cool shit.

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    I hope Treyarch learnt from their mistakes on what they did in tranzit with those denizens. Lets hope they don’t add in any stupid annoying creatures or effect that will put you at risk if you decide not to use the tram and travel foot instead.

    • Eddie Tupy

      you know those denizens can be used to make the light posts teleporters.

      • RdJokr

        Point is, they were annoying. It’d be fine if they pop up every once in a while, but they keep coming at you endlessly. And you don’t even get points for killing them!

      • shadowguy14

        You say that as if that actually has a purpose. All those teleporters did was put you right into the fog. Randomly.

        • Ak74u

          Yup and if a teammate went down in the fog it was impossible to revive them because the denizens would cancel your reviving seringe

      • Ak74u

        Yeah but you still needed a turbine that would easily break

        • Eddie Tupy

          or the power switch activated.

          k guys believe me, whenever i first played this map i thought it was shit but when i got better and bored of origins i started playing the older ones again and realized it was pretty good change of pace

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        To be honest, those denizens weren’t that much of a big problem. Only time they became a problematic m is when I’m getting swarmed by zombies and them midgets are grabbing my face.

    • Mick

      I didn’t mind the denizens, but the annoying hellhounds in bo2. I can’t tell you how many times in private matches I’ve died by the Hellhounds because they explode and damage you when you kill them. Also stepping on the firing lava was annoying too.

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        Really? Those hellhound could be killed with m1911 with half of mag

  • a_required_field

    This isn’t fallout 4

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      Obviously fucking not. Moron.

  • MichiganerE

    I have this feeling that when Treyarch says that SoE is going to be, “the biggest Zombies map ever”, they mean that it’s going to be divided up into separate sections that you can only obtain through certain ways of transportation. Meanwhile, the areas dividing up these sections would be inaccessible with their only purpose being to give the illusion that the map is incredibly huge when it actually isn’t.

    • RdJokr

      According to a few people who got the game early on Reddit, you can walk the entire map on foot. It’s like TranZit without fog. So I wouldn’t worry too much.

      • MichiganerE

        Well, I suppose that my worries have been put to rest hten. But seeing as this map is supposed to be the size of an entire city with the ability to go anywhere, I can’t help but wonder how the last-gen consoles are going to run it.

        • Yeah I have a huge feeling that Shadows of Evil is going to be cut a lot on last gen.

          • MichiganerE

            Or maybe it’ll all be there, but it’ll just be significantly downgraded graphically and will run at 10-20fps.

          • Yeah probably. I wonder if they’ll get Dead Ops 2 which I think they’ll will lol

        • RdJokr

          Extreme fog, exclusively for last gen users. Either that, or objects and roads pop up in front of you every 3 feet.

          • MichiganerE

            You mean every 2 inches.

          • RdJokr

            Given that the game’s already downgraded to run at 30 FPS, it might get a little more than that.

            But yeah, it’s gonna be pop-up city for Black Ops III on last gen.

        • joeyofbport

          I would imagine the same way you do on Destiny when traversing from one large area to another, but instead of going through a cave or canyon you will probably go through tunnel or alley way which hides your view of the game loading the next area, which is pretty much what the fog was for in transit but poorly executed

          • MichiganerE


  • burrgee

    “Its the biggest zombies map we’ve ever done”. I like, considering how big tranzit was.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    “Transit” I see what you did there, Blundell.

  • Eddie Tupy

    tranzit was a good map considering the hardware at the time

    • TranZit and good in the same sentence? lol

      • One Russian’s Revenge

        “Unless it’s ‘Tranzit was no good’, then right?.. Am I cool yet?”

        • Yes you are. You are part of the cool party now. Cookies and shit are just over there with all the mtn dews

          • One Russian’s Revenge

            -super secret cool guy handshake-

      • Eddie Tupy

        im a masochist/perfectionist type so take what you will from my opinion

        • Uh what?

          • Eddie Tupy

            ugh, look up the word masochist and apply it to my previous sentence about my playstyle.

            In other words i like the challenge in games. I love games that have literally impossible difficulty modes [only one i know so far is goldeneye 64].
            Challenge breeds excellence…

          • >implying TranZit is challenging lol

          • Eddie Tupy

            why dont you like it then?

          • Are you really asking me to beat a dead horse?

          • Eddie Tupy

            i dont get what point youre trying to make. i like the map, you dont and somehow im an idiot for liking it.

          • The point with beating a dead horse is that you want my reasoning for disliking it. When all you have to do is a simple search on YouTube on why it sucks. The reason why I say that? Because my opinion will most likely match anyones reasoning on why it sucks. Hence beating a dead horse. And are you looking at the same conversation I’m looking at? Where did I call you an idiot for liking it? Where? Please pin point it to me because I haven’t. Don’t make stupid assumptions. If you like TranZit thats cool. Play that map until you die for all I care. Meanwhile I’l play much better maps.

    • Drasadex

      nah you crazy lol

  • Space Jam

    The problem I had with transit was well, many things, but mainly it was too open. I’m excited because there are tight alley ways but also open streets and multi floor buildings adding verticality in a much more sensible way including canals as well


      tranzit was not open

  • Sanik Teh Hedgehag

    M eye tee onlie juan hoo lyked tranzit? i found it to be cool how can u travel and whatnot tbh

    • Viral Echo

      I liked it, but the other maps are much better in comparison

  • Choppabro2psn

    I really hope this isn’t Tranzit 2.

    • Edro

      It isn’t, there isn’t any smoke, and the tram system is basically like trains it costs 500 and takes you to a stop.

    • Its more like a Mob of the Dead 2

  • Michael Romo

    Exactly what they said about Tranzit. We all saw how that turned out

    • Aidan

      In Tranzit, you had to take the bus, otherwise you were stranded.
      On SOE, the tram is optional. You can walk around the map if you like.

  • Slothigans

    As long as you don’t have those fuckin things jumping at your face every five seconds like what was the point of that? It wasn’t scary it was annoying.

  • Slash


  • Intersting. But why to xbox?

    • why not?


      because they knew you would get butt-hurt

      • Tuby

        Just like you each weekend when your Daddy come over

  • spartanelite

    Did someone say transit!!! >:l

  • Dangelo95

    I’m sure treyarch made it where the tram isn’t as necessary as the bus was like they said there’s many different ways to move around the map which means more then 2

    • Slothigans

    • Liberty City

      Yeah.. cause this will fix the guns and weapon balancing.

  • shadowguy14

    Oh I really hope Treyarch isn’t stupid enough to make another Tranzit…..

  • oskar

    sr. awesome map

  • What’s wrong with Tranzit? I’m not really a zombies fan but I liked Tranzit.

    • matt murdock

      nah i can understand as a casual player, but if you play properly, not just exploring, you recognize the terrrrible design, inconvenient placements and ugliness of the maps. its insulting really. no matter where you stand, we all loved it when it came out though

      • Joshwoocool

        not a casual player and I still like tranzit

        • matt murdock


          • Joshwoocool


          • matt murdock

            you are a casual

          • Joshwoocool

            I am Not.What is your evidence to say that?

  • GTA V

    Nuketown but now with one wall on the right to run on.

  • Tuby

    I have never been so hyped for a zombie map. Normally I am more fancy MP

  • Lewis D. Conner

    This is the one time where im not hyped for zombies. Lets hope the dlc turns out decent.

    • Because of the Train? I have seen gameplay myself and trust me, its nothing like TranZit. This map works just like Mob of the Dead in a way
