Zombies are coming to the next installment of Call of Duty once again. Black Ops III, which comes out November 6th, will include a co-op mode for annihilating the undead. Called "Shadows of Evil," the survival mode debuted on stage at Comic-Con in an announcement that included a trailer, discussion of the storyline, and appearances by members of the cast, including Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, Ron Perlman, and Robert Picardo.

"Shadows of Evil" is the latest in a series of popular zombie modes for the Call of Duty franchise. This one has a 1940s noir setting, and features four main characters who come together "in an unraveling experience masterminded by the mysterious Shadow Man," according to a breathless release. In addition, developer Treyarch said at the panel Black Ops III will also include a remake of Der Riese, a previous zombie map, as downloadable content.
